The best is yet to come!

Hi. Thanks for checking out my Spark Page. I'm Eileen and people call me Ei. I live in Ohio!

Isn't SparkPeople.com wonderful? I really love it and it sure is helping me in my journey. This website was recommended to me when I asked my doctor how I could lose weight. Wow! I am so glad I asked her that question!

I went to Weight Watchers for several years off and on and did lose, but then put it back on when I stopped going.

Hi. Thanks for checking out my Spark Page. I'm Eileen and people call me Ei. I live in Ohio!

Isn't SparkPeople.com wonderful? I really love it and it sure is helping me in my journey. This website was recommended to me when I asked my doctor how I could lose weight. Wow! I am so glad I asked her that question!

I went to Weight Watchers for several years off and on and did lose, but then put it back on when I stopped going.
In September 2010 when I discovered Spark People and read the book, it really got me motivated to make a decision. I decided I wanted a healhier lifestyle and knew I needed to make a change. I was doing the WW Points plan-- on my own with the help of Spark People.

Spark got me going and then the new WW Points plus plan came out and I decided to change from WW points- on my own to the new plan.
In December of 2010 , I re-joined for the new WW Points Plus Program for three months. It was a early Christmas gift to myself, since I know ----I am worth it!!
Now, since early March 2011, I am doing the program on my own. I have a long way to go, but know this program will keep me on top of things.
I have a few health problems that sometimes interfere
with my exercising plans, but am striving to improve on this. I am hoping my health will actually be much better by my activity and healthier lifestyle.
One day at at time I will get there. It may take me longer than I planned, but I will not give up. My journey is moving in the right direction and I am on this with all of you. Let's help each other get there. Thanks for being here Spark People!

I was re-reading your comment again about my upcoming knee surgery and I saw once again to confirm, that You actually can walk pretty fast with your new knee! Now that excites me! I really am revving myself up to accept this. I saw too that your dr. had you take Motrin for pain, etc. I don't know what I'll be given for pain afterwards, except I do know that my Ortho. said that they'll dr. we up with short-lived strong narcotics and hopefully that can be afterwards too, because I can't have anything close to tylenol, motrin, etc. because of my liver enzymes increasing from other strong drugs for pain, so I can't take anything to raise havoc, but the Ortho and my Rheumy will know how to take care of me. It's just that my good friend who also has RA, had this same Ortho. dr., and she was in screaming pain after she got home, etc. But I found out lately that she only went to 2 P/T appts., and that could be the reason why too? What do you think??

Thank you for thinking of me with Halloween and the goodies. Too bad they're not like the goodies here on SP, right?! I'm taking a day at a time. I had another Ortho. appt. yesterday and my knee surgery is set for Dec. 15th, so ya, this is really going to happen. I get so scared about it and say, No, I can't do this, but I know that I have to. There's no other option! He told me that the left side of my knee is gone. Ya, that bad! No wonder I can hardly walk when the cortisone is weaned off! And ouch too, so I know that I have to do this! My DH bought a bag of Reese's PB Cups and Kit Kats because we usually get the neighbor kids and they didn't come this time so now we have them all left over!! It's a test and I will come through with flying colors today! We will do it!!

Thank you again for your sweet, supportive comment on my page too. It's only those that have truly "been there" who are able to really help with this knee transformation. I'm really looking forward to it and to getting it over with too! I appreciate all your kindness too! Love, K
