Hi I am Bernadette and in the process of losing extra unwanted and un-needed weight... I fell in 2001 and injured my neck, right arm and right ankle. This fall has left me disabled and in constant pain. I gained 150 lbs after my injury which made things much worse. Because my ankle was never properly been taken care of (due to WC issues) I fell again in 2006 this time I reinjured my right arm causing more damage to the elbow severly limiting use, and had to have a radial head replacement in the left arm. I spent a month in the hospitol and wc still has not agreeded to fix my ankle. Because of the weight gain I started to have trouble with my knees, but since I have lost some of the weight that problem has stopped. Exercise is my biggest problem because of the increase pain it causes. So I am trying to walk 10 minuetes at a time several times a day. I am trying hard to walk through the pain. Lots of ice packs and tenns unit really help with this.

I have five wonderful children, one grand-daughter and one due in August, so I have many blessings and reasons to get healthy and stay that way.... Losing 79 lbs more for a extended life time with them is well worth the effort.

    Hi Mac, I've gained 25 pounds after having gallbladder surgery. What do you suggest. I've been going to the gym and have only lost a couple of pounds. I not really hungry but I'm eating all over the place hoping something will work for me. You told me about a plan that allowed me to reach my goal weight. Do you think it will work? Don't know what to do.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you. My prayers have finally been answered. I found you and the team and I fianlly feel like I can get to where I want to be. Your article today was what I needed to read and read again to know that I hadn't failed with my surgery but that I just didn't get all the infomation I needed nor the support desired. Please accept my thanks for being here when I needed you.

    Thank you for your article on the pouch. I have added you as a friend, I hope you don't mind. I have to start all over as if I had just had the surgery. I never had any support or rules to follow after my surgery so I was on my own. I almost died from losing too fast and too much and now have gained back 50 pounds over my ideal. With yours and others support, I hope to once agan see my goal. THANK YOU soooo much emoticon emoticon
