Greetings

I am a wife and homeschooling mom with 4 children. My husband and I celebrated our 25th anniversary in Sep 09. I wanted to get thin for that, but did not know about this program.
I have had many health challenges in my life. I was diagnosed over 30 years ago with Lupus. Last fall, I was told that I don't have it. But, I've had hospital stays in the last year. Last In Oct 0f2009, I got the H1N1 virus. Had complications of AF,and pneumonia. I was in for a week. In Feb. 2010 I had some ...

I have had many health challenges in my life. I was diagnosed over 30 years ago with Lupus. Last fall, I was told that I don't have it. But, I've had hospital stays in the last year. Last In Oct 0f2009, I got the H1N1 virus. Had complications of AF,and pneumonia. I was in for a week. In Feb. 2010 I had some intestinal problems. Not sure of the cause, as an IBD panel came back negative. My latest problems have been low white blood cell levels.
I have had weight challenges most of my life, too. I started getting pudgy when I was 8, after having my tonsils out.
Have been to what I consider a good normal weight two times in my life.
Here are a couple of quotes I like:

We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give.~Winston Churchill

What lies behind us, and what lies before us, are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Spring is here!
In like a lion......out like a lamb.
Old Man Winter.........we say "Scram".
The streams are full from the melted snow.
Soon will be time to plant and to hoe.
The birds are chirping high in the tree.
Spring is arriving.....that we can see.
Flowers rising from their wintry beds
Crocus and tulips raising their heads.
Bunnies hopping around in the clover.
At long last..........Winter is Over.


Happy Spring Denise!
