Begining of a new day

I live on the west coast of Canada. I'm surrounded by the Pacific Ocean and beautiful mountain peaks. My city is truely beautiful. Living on the west coast we have a great deal of rain, that is why we are so lush and green. So when the sun does shine the vistas are spectacular.
I have a rare form of arthritis and over the past ten years I have lost nearly everything I love to do including walking. I sort of sound like a country and western song. I lost my job, my truck, my dog ...

I have a rare form of arthritis and over the past ten years I have lost nearly everything I love to do including walking. I sort of sound like a country and western song. I lost my job, my truck, my dog (never had one) but this disease took my life. But now I'm fighting back. Over the past ten years I have gained over one hundred pounds. I medicated myself with food. I just plain ate my way up the scale till I tipped two hundred and eighty eight pounds. So I'm here again. This time I have all my ducks in a row. I plan to shed my weight and have both knees replaced, then my ankles and then my spine surgery last. By the time I'm finished I will set off every security system there is out there. Boy will they love me at the airport. LOL! LOL! LOL!
I needed a lot of support because this journey will take a very long time, which just overwhelmed me. And I knew I could not do this on my own. So I set out to find a Obesity Councillor, and she is great. She also told me because I have an eating disorder I needed much more support than an online community could give me so I went back to Weight Watchers weekly and I have come home to Spark. I have prayed about my journey and I will continue to pray but I could use your help too. So please, lend me a hand, cause there are times when I will not be able to make this on my own. So I will take help where ever I can get it. Because this is do-able.
Now about the Low Note Diva, I love to sing. I belong to a choir and I have been labeled a contralto. I love to cook and have worked under a number of great chefs over the years. I managed restaurants and hospital kitchens for a living and loved my jobs. I grew up on a farm and learned to ride a horse before I could walk. I love my family and my friends and I'm so very thankful that I have God on my side. I'm married to a wonderful man and we have no children but our friends have wonderful children who we call our own. So I never feel I'm lacking in that department.
So again, if anyone would like to leave me a message feel free. I look forward to making new friends.

The dermatologist prescribed a salve called Taclonex that I apply each night. She said get up and put tar shampoo on it directly, no water. Rub it in well and then get in the shower. She said that would help get the oiliness of this salve out of my hair.. I am praying this will solve it for me. How's yours doing?

I go to the dermatologist tomorrow. I hope your cream works! I bought the Ion brand tar shampoo from Sally's. It makes my hair soft and full and awesome. You will love it! Just use a good conditioner afterward and the smell will wash away.
