I have lost most of the weight that I wanted to lose. I started out at about 400 pounds. I had a gastric bypass, but it was worth only about 140 pounds. I lost the rest on my own. I had problems with the gastric bypass, but I managed to work with it. I still have problems with it, but now, it is just a part of life.
I got to within 9 pounds of my goal weight, and--fate stepped in. Now, getting to that point involved losing 50 pounds twice! This was from the gain of 25 pounds at two different times from medications that my doctor had prescribed, with weight gain as a side effect. Then, a third medication caused a third 25 pound weight gain. Then on top of that, I became Vitamin D deficient, which will cause you to gain weight. Once you gain the weight, you cannot lose it while you are still Vitamin D deficient! So, now I am 50 pounds from my original goal weight. I need help. I need to lose 50 pounds.
My goal is to reach my original target weight! I also want to make healthier choices!
I want to try to develop a food choice plan that will help to drop the weight as well as an exercise plan that my body will tolerate! As well, as work around my body's quirks!!
I am 58 and divorced. My oldest son and his wife live with me. I live in central Missouri. I am pretty family oriented. I have three little dogs, a small parrot, three cockatiels, and two doves. I love animals. I love to do crafts, crocheting, sewing, and other arty things. I love to read and watch movies. I love sci-fi, fantasy, action, and westerns. I love country music, and a little bit of a lot of other kinds. I also like houseplants and gardening, but I find outside gardening hard to do. For that, I need a lot of help.
I loved the Twilight Saga, books and movies.
The Hunger Games, as well, books and movie.
I like books/movies about the supernatural.

Thanks for your comment on my blog. I actually started taking Vitamin D3 (that was the only Vitamin D that I could find at Walmart), not sure if it will help, but it couldn't hurt. Hope you get your deficiency under control soon and start to lose weight again. Keep at it. You have come so far! Just remember that.
