Aloha, I'm Renee

I have been heavy all my life. Not always obese like now. I was actually at a healthy weight once (143 lbs), but still thought I was fat. Boy, do I know better now. I ride the weight loss roller coaster and it's making me very weary. I have been on SP since 2007 and in all those years I have lost and gained 30 to 50+ lbs several times. Eventually I will do more than just lose the weight, I will keep it off. So, here I go again.

{copied/pasted from WordPad since I can't actually see what I'm typing here}

Rene, I read your information at the top of your page. I have been on SparkPeople since July of 2010 and so I can relate all too well with what you're talking about .... all the ups & downs with the attendant self*recrimination.

You know what the good news is? You & I refuse to give up. With enough efforts and the things we learn {or are reminded of} we *will* get where we're going! We just have to do the right things at the right times. With practice we'll eventually feel that our healthy lifestyle is as natural to us as the air we breathe.

Have a wonderful week! Marie

emoticon Renee'About me,well if you notice I do not do blogs anymore. Mainly because I feel hypocratic about what I am doing or lack there of.
First I am having surgery on my ailing foot,it involves rods ,screws and immobilization for two months and rehabilatation for two months after that.
My wife has not fully recovered from her brain injury. She is at the age of an angry teenaged girl.She is not a lot of help and coupled with a teenager and an special needs child,well it is kinda hectic.Si as you can imagine I do everything.But.....................
After my surgery and recovery. I am coming back with an vengeance. I lost over 70 pounds and was doing so well. I am tired of being fat and it has to get done. So don't count me out yet.
I hope you and your family are well and good. emoticon
