Gastric Banding...Really?

I've been overweight practically my whole life. I was the designated fat kid in all (4) my different schools grades 2 - 5 and had crossed the 300lb mark by my freshman year. I've suffered from varying levels of chonic pain and depression for about 20 years and have almost no self-esteem. My doctors have always told me basically that all my health problems would be better if I lost weight, but all my efforts have ultimately failed.

My doctors have always told me basically that all my health problems would be better if I lost weight, but all my efforts have ultimately failed. In the last couple of years, some of them have really started pushing the idea of gastric banding on me. Being active and accountable on this site is my last ditch effort to avoid that option.

I will walk at least 4 miles each week.
I will strenght train for 15 minutes or more at least 2 days a week.
I will drink at least 9 cups of water each day, stay off soda, and limit other caloric drinks such as tea and juice.

I'm currently a FB Games addict, but am trying to decrease the amount of time spent on games so I can focus on my health and getting back into my family genealogy.

Christmas gift suggestions: To your enemy, forgiveness. To an opponent, tolerance. To a friend, your heart. To a customer, service. To all, charity. To every child, a good example. To yourself, respect.

Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a New Year filled with blessings!

Thanksgiving – All In A Word

Author: Unknown

T for time to be together
Turkey, talk and tangy weather.
H for harvest stored away
Home, and hearth and holiday.
A for autumn’s frosty art,
And abundance in the heart.
N for neighbors and November,
Nice things, new things to remember.
K for kitchen, kettle’s croon.
Kith and kin expected soon.
S for sizzles, sights and sounds,
And something special that abounds.
That spells THANKS – for joy in living
And a jolly good Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Just a line to keep in touch
Because you are on my mind so much
And even though, I’ve nothing to say
You’ll know I thought of you today!

Have a Sparkly day!!!
