I am married, my husband and I are both diabetic and have sleep apnea. We have 9 kids between us and currently have 5 grandkids. I am struggling with lots of health issues recently (diabetic, sleep apnea, overwieght, stabbing pain in lower right leg with pins and needle sensations, pain shooting through leg when touching just below the knee, bulging discs in lower back) needless to say I have several issues which make it difficult to do exercises to help with the weightloss program.

LOOKING FORWARD TO 2010:
Over the last 13 months I have lost 54 pounds. I have dropped at least 2 pant sizes and am wearing pants that I haven't warn since sometime in 2006. The pants that I was wearing are so big that they almost fall off me and I can take them off without unbuckling them. I have noticed that my fasting blood sugar numbers have decreased which is a good thing and hopefully can decrease the amount of medicine I am taking for my diabetes. January 2010 weight and measurements are as follows:
weight: 245.2
waist: 44"
hips: 51.6"
neck: 15.5"
thigh:
BMI: 42.1

Glad to hear you're home again! I used to hear that line all the time ("I hope I don't see you again!" as I'd wheel someone out . . . kinda funny.)

I feel your pain re: paying the bills. My DH was laid off in December and has been looking. NADA, nothing, zip @ this point. So, we live by the seat of our pants as it were!

HUGS and keep improving. Glad you're home.

It is common after surgeries. Let the medicines work. They keep your blood thinner so your body can break down the clot. It takes time, but they will monitor you. Hugs. Its good you went back in as it can be dangerous. emoticon

WooHoo on the weight loss Thiry. I agree, not the way you want to lose it and you can keep it off. Just take a day at a time and you will get your strength back--just try not to get to impatient. That is my problem when I start getting better. Do the PT packets as prescribed and let dh and dd help you. emoticon emoticon
