Hi Everyone, My Name Is Monica. I'am Married To A Wonderful Man (Michael Alleman) Of Whom I'am Proud To Call My Husband! I'am Forty Nine, And Have Been Over Weight Since The Birth Of My Oldest Child In 1982, Seven Total! Throughout The Years Till A Few Months Ago, I Have Gained 176 Pounds, With My Highest Weight Elevating To 338 Pounds! Reaching My 30's, I Started Having Health Issues Which Only Esculated There On Resulting In Diabetes, Hypertension, Asthma, And Poor Curculation In My Legs, Etc. I Joined Weight Watchers In 2009, Lost 17 Pounds, Then Gave Up After A Few Months! About A Year Ago, My Dr. Told Me If I Didn't Get My Weight Under Control, I Was Going To Die...Plain And Simple! At This Time, I Considered Weight Loss Surgery...Prayed About It, Searched It, Even Followed Through With 90 % Of The Plan, And Decided It Wasn't Right For Me! Only Since Feb Of This Year, That I Decided To Take Control Of My Life And Start Living Again! I Then Joined Weight Watchers Again, And Have Lost 50 Pounds So For! Needless To Say, All Of My Health Problems Are Now Under Control, Thanks To The Grace Of God, And My Will To Finally Make That Very Important Step In My Life! I Didn't Need Weight Loss Surgery After All! I'am Now Proud To Be A Part Of The Sparks Community Where I Know I Will Succeed To The Fullest! Monica

Happy Sunday. Hope you're summer is going great. Are you still on track to do all you can today to reach your goals tomorrow? If so, great! If not, what can you change today that will help you feel accomplished? One little thing. Drink more water? Cut out soda? Go for a walk? Small changes add up.

Welcome.... thank you for adding me as a friend. Sounds like we have a lot of the same health issues. I too starting having problems in my 30's, except the high blood pressure, I was diagnosed at the ripe old age of 14. I also have Diabetes, Asthma (for as long as I can remember), High Cholesterol, the right side of my heart is enlarged, I have Osteoarthritis in my hips, degenerative joint disease in my knees, IBS, bilateral carpal tunnel and there are just too many to list. My last count was about 35 different medical diagnosis. I started my weight loss journey about 4 years ago. Lost 65 pounds in my first year. It has been up and down since. I have been able to mostly maintain. My highest weight was 282 and now at 228 or so. I have been up and down with about 8 pounds for a while now. But I will not give up. This has been a life style change for me. And I might add, a Good one. If I can do it, I know you can too. Anything I can do to help let me know.
