This time I WILL lose the weight!

In September of 2009 my husband, who was then 31 years old, was diagnosed with stage 3 kidney failure due to Polycystic Kidney Diease.

In June of 2012 he started peritoneal dialysis because his kidney failure had reached stage 5 and he was really sick.

This past December, I decided that I was going to fight hard to lose the weight so I can be tested to give my husband a kidney. We aren't sure I will even be allowed to donate at all, but we will never know for sure ...

This past December, I decided that I was going to fight hard to lose the weight so I can be tested to give my husband a kidney. We aren't sure I will even be allowed to donate at all, but we will never know for sure until I can be properly tested. So now I'm fighting harder than I ever had before to lose the weight.

My first goal is to get down to 175. At that weight I will be able to start the testing process. My ultimate goal is 135.

If I'm able to donate and I'm not a match for my husband, I hope that we can arrange a swap, so he can still get a kidney.

Hi Friend!
I see that you added me as a friend back in September, and I am adding you. I am sorry that I did not add you sooner. The e-mail got lost in all the many I get from SparkPeople! Hope you are well! I have a lot to lose too!
Keep in touch!
Jen

Hi! I just read your intro at EE and I left a reply. Seriously, check out "Stressed Out Moms" -- because we "attack" stress with positives and just enjoy life while losing the pounds! Read our huddle -- and see the positives and progress we're making on losing those pounds and feeling LESS stressed -- we're doing it with encouragement, friendship and fun! And remember to read my whole intro on profile page -- that's why I started the Team! So, best wishes to you and, again, add me as a friend, as I've added you as mine. I'm with ya, girl. Stress can't stand in the way of our happiness and health!
