Half Way There!

I'm suffering from degenerative disc disease, arthritis, 6 herniated discs in my back and neck, osteoarthritis in my right knee and right hip. I need total hip replacement and total knee replacement, but I have to lose weight first!

Everyone says I'm too young to be having all these problems and I sure want to be able to enjoy my family more. So this is it! It's time to be a little selfish and focus on me for a while.

The easy part will be learning how to eat better. But it's very painful for me to exercise. I'm counting on support from you guys and the Lord.

I reached my first goal and beat it by 3 pounds!!!! And earlier than I had anticipated. My next goal is to lose 15 more pounds by Christmas...to reach my pre-pregnancy weight.
