Lose it for Life

I'm from Erie, PA. I am now down to 215--living the DREAM. When I started with Spark in July of '07 I was stuck on a plateau of 235 for what seemed like forever. When I quit smoking in November of '07 I couldn't seem to stop gaining weight!
But I'm still here. I know 120 is a dream from my youth, but 150 seems reasonable. At 49 I'm a stroke survivor (1st at 29, last big 1 at 34) who can no longer be a nurse, but I can drive a fork lift. Until February '08, that is. Then I tried for ...

But I'm still here. I know 120 is a dream from my youth, but 150 seems reasonable. At 49 I'm a stroke survivor (1st at 29, last big 1 at 34) who can no longer be a nurse, but I can drive a fork lift. Until February '08, that is. Then I tried for disablility in August '08. I'm STILL waiting. And now I'm dieing. In June I had a small stroke and the MRI showed I'm now throwing strokes in m brain stem. I've hit the big time, folks! Those are the ones that kill immediately, if they are big enough. Praise God, mine havent been. Yet.
I wanted to lose the weight to keep my blood pressure in check, so I could live to see my 4 year old grandson graduate from college. How's that for motivation! Now I just want to watch him grow day by day.
I'm separated, with 6 grown children--the "babies"are 23 & 22 1/2. I can't work any more because of the brain damage. The symptoms imitate Alzheimers. My husband is disabled with a bad heart.
I'm a survivor. I can do this. I think I have finally found the program to help me take it off and keep it off by changing my eating habits and styles. I sure get in the cardio every day, working out with my MP3 player and the Lord, and chasing that grandie when I have him!

Thank you for your post. I has helped me tremendously. This is a hard time but it's good to be reassured that God has my back and he will never leave me nor forsake me. I have joined an SP group now and I am looking for resources in my community.

I will add you as a friend and keep you posted on the progress. I will keep your family in prayer as you pray for mine.

Thanks,
Tamika
