Hello Everyone,

Thanks so much for stopping by my page and reading my info.

For the most part of my life I have not had a weight problem. The most I had ever gotten up to was 160lbs. Most of the time I weighed in the 140's.

In 2003 I started having health issues and the weight started jumping on. By November 2012, I weighed in at 299 in my nightshirt. One by one my health issues got me. It was harder and harder to walk because I was in so much pain. I had to leave my job earlier than I had planned.

I had given up and had thoughts of going to a nursing home. Then one day I decided to not give up. I went to Doctor after Doctor, pleading with anyone that would listen, to please help me. Most said I was having problems because I was getting older.

Please don't give me the age card. I KNEW there was something wrong with me. And, I believed in my heart that someone could help me.

I kept on and on and told them (the Doctors), that there is something wrong with me. I begged them to please fix me. I had been to 12 different Doctors. I finally found one that realized right away that I did have a problem.

I am not totally fixed, but I am currently doing physical therapy prescribed by Orthopedic Doc. I am taking prescribed vitamin D and taking Thyroid med.

I am down 25 lbs. since November of 2012. Today is Sunday, October 01, 2017.

I knew if I would put my mind to this, some more of the weight would come off. It is a slow process, but I do not want to give up.

I can use all of the encouragement I can get. Thanks.

May each of you be blessed, today and always.

    Checking in to make sure you are OK. This summer has been a hard one for me. I found that I was doing less and less because of pain or the fear of pain. I have reset goal. I am getting up and moving at lest every 1-2 hrs. Going outside and walking or if too sore or hot walking and moving stuff in the house. I just need to keep moving. I am working on eating healthier, less grazing. We can do this. May have to do it hour by hour but we can do this. Hugs.
