I'm a Wife, a Mom of 2, a Mom in Law of 2, a Grams to a beautiful granddaughter and a handsome grandson. A Scentsy Star Consultant, A Domestic Engineer, A Chauffeur, A Personal Assistant, Accountant, Babysitter, I do Home Remodeling and Demolition, and so much more. I have lost weight with Spark People before. 70 lbs to be exact, but in 2009 I took a hard fall on the ice and caused some severe disc damage in 5 discs in my cervical, thoracic, lumbar, and sacral spine, and am still dealing daily with that pain. I have also had to have another ankle fusion, so in the time since most of my friends here saw me last July 2015. I had reached 240 lbs. That's quite a bit when you only stand maybe 5'2". I 2015, my husband had suddenly lost 60 lbs., and was diagnosed with diabetes in July 2015. I had already decided I was ready to lose weight. I couldn't catch my breath walking 10 feet across the room. My body hurt all the time. My bad leg and back especially. I decided I didn't want to feel this way. I didn't want to hurt, to fight for a breath, or feel my heart pounding out of my chest because it had to work so hard to move all of my weight around. So I am working with my doctor, and he is keeping a close eye on me. I'm trying to eat. Ugh...It's so hard to force feed calories. I still only manage around maybe 900 a day, but I am trying. It is working!!! I did have a minor setback, I had to have my gallbladder removed in October, and finding things I can eat again has proven very difficult. But...I'm still doing well and have lost 45 lbs. I have 70.6 to go to reach my ultimate goal! But, after it took a year and 3 months to lose 40 lbs, I am taking it in baby steps. 15 lb Goals at a time from here on out. I'm down 5, 10 to go for this goal. Then on to the next. Yay!!! I'm taking my life back!!!!
