63 DWF with 3 adult kids and 6 beautiful grandchildren. I own 1 big dog Bella with 2 grand puppies 2 grand cats and not least 3 cute little ferrets

2009 I had a bilateral adrenalectomy for Cushing syndrome which is very rare. Especially the adrenalectomy. This has been a challenge to stay healthy. I have to take steroids 4 times a day for the rest of my life to stay alive. Makes it difficult to lose weight but I continue to try.

I have been on disability for 3 years due to the challenges I have but do not regret for one moment of having this surgery. Everyone has there issues and problems being health,emotions or many other problems. Life would be boring if we lived in a perfect world.

    Congrats on starting over and over......its only when you quit that you fail.

    Its hard to have things that keep you from losing weight, but all those attempts to lose
    (thus eating better and trying to be healthier) may have already saved your life in
    situations that you know nothing about.

    So you are who you are! Be proud of what you have done, and rejoice!!!
    Just reading about it makes be proud of you!!!
