JUST ME

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 ...
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.

I hope you success on your sale. I've already started with the rules. I really feel they are an answer to prayer. I had no idea how to eat. My doctor nor his staff didn't tell me anything but to drink water and protein shakes. I'm almost 7 months out from my date of surgery. The rules came just in time.
I feel like I can drop the rest of my weight using the rules.

Did you follow the pouch rules? I started following the rules this morning. I also placed the rules on 2 other sites. The comments have been negative on one of the sites. I felt bad about that so, I am so glad you got back with me. I am tracking my food on the nutritional tracker and it seems I will not be getting enough calories. Did you eat a certain number of calories to reach your weight? I really believe the rules are going to work for me. emoticon

Thank you so much for the pouch rules. I had no clue. No one in my doctor's office talked about these rules. Six months out and I feel like I am walking in the dark. Everyday, that I use SparkPeople, I learn something new. I feel like I will be successful now that I have the rules. emoticon
