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 ...
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 49 lbs. since November of 2012. Today is Friday, December 31, 2015.

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.

Thanks for the info about the drip pans. I tried the vinegar in the bag but it did not do much for my drip pans. I did replace them with new ones from Lowes but I was hoping I could keep the new ones from getting too dirty! emoticon

Thank you for stopping by my Kitchen Dancing blog with your encouraging comments. It's great to meet someone who has appreciated Richard's programs. There are still a lot of them out there - and you don't have to be thin to follow them (look at the people behind him!). Also, you don't need a partner, although that sounds like an interesting picture!

As for the teenagers, we first saw the head-in-the-electronics craze when our teenage granddaughter lived with us for a year. It gives new meeting to the old definition of beatniks as The Lost Generation.

Brenda, I doubt you can't find something to do, today. You're always busy. I have to get my mind into final packing mode.
