Both are incurable autoimmune diseases which are treated with steroids and many other drugs. I live alone with my two wonderful kitties (I am not crazy cat lady yet!) I live very close to my family.

My rheumatologist informed me the other day that I needed to get moving, I was going to wind up in a chair or bed and that I had 40 more years to live. I just looked at her and said I don't want 40 more years of this hell! Say it isn't so! Well, i made up my mind right then that I was going to do something...I didn't know what! In researching diets I came across the 17DD and it appears to meet my needs. I had tried Atkins and it was ok but I really like my fruit.

Well adventure begins as of SATURDAY, MARCH 23, 2013..BRING IT!

My Goals:
Lose weight so I will look and feel better about myself and hopefully help my health problems that can't be cured but perhaps alittle remission would be nice!

Become more active and not depend on others

Get to a "normal" size so I can buy clothes off the rack...which I have never done in my life unless it was a plus store.

My Program:
Following 17DD by the book!

Researching/utilizing tools to help me on my adventure

For extra motivation I am picking out my wardrobe for when I reach goal off of Pinterest!

Personal Information:
I live in Brandon, MS. It is very humid in the summer..and sometimes in the winter too! I live with my two furkids Boo and Buddy, one yr old kitties. My wonderful sister lives behind me and my 84 yr old dad lives next door. He takes care of us! Lol

Other Information:
I like good movies. Crafts like stained glass and jewelry making. I used to SCUBA in my younger days..loved it! Kept saltwater aquariums for years. Love animals, taking photos. Oh yea, I am a very good cook!

Just want to say hello and let you know I miss you! Hope to see your posts on the 17DD team or the 50+ team or both. Made Mexican stuffed peppers today....delicious as usual.

Hi! I got an email today about the 17DD from Prevention Mag and decided to research it. I have been a member of SP for a couple of years and have grown increasingly inactive on it.

However, I just read your blurb. I have arthritis, too. My rheumatologist wants me to lose weight, as well. I am so sick of being overweight. I just went shopping today and bought some foods that don't fit (like fat free ricotta cheese) so I'm going to do my version for now.

It seems like the main thing is to avoid starchy carbs in cycle 1. In any case, I'm going to join the group. I hope we get to know each other better as time goes on.

Congrats on losing 92 pounds! Is it okay if I turn to you for advice?

Speak to you soon!
Best,

Merry
