I am in a wheelchair and own 2 cats and a dog. I live by myself and need to lose weight.

I was born with Spina Bifida and Sacral Agenesis. Which makes exercising a challenge along with the several hernia's I have. No matter how much weight I lose I will still have a HUGE stomach due to all the hernia's. I am willing to lose weight tho not for the "looks" but for the health factor.

I am in a wheelchair and own 2 cats and a dog. I live by myself and need to lose weight.

I was born with Spina Bifida and Sacral Agenesis. Which makes exercising a challenge along with the several hernia's I have. No matter how much weight I lose I will still have a HUGE stomach due to all the hernia's. I am willing to lose weight tho not for the "looks" but for the health factor.

I do suffer from small bowel obstruction about every 5 to 6 months and they last from 7 to 19 days. I treat these at home with my service dog by my side! She is my angel as she has saved my life more than once. She was alerting me at night and making me get up out of bed. Come to find out I do not breath at night so my Oxygen was dropping to the 50's. I do NOT have sleep Apnea tho - I have what is called Central Apnea - this is where the brain shuts down and does not tell the body to breath at night. The treatment for this is a bi-pap machine with Oxygen while a person sleeps. We are still figuring out the settings for my machine - but hopefully soon I will be alright in this area.

I am being treated for 27 illnesses and am HOPING to decrease these by losing weight.

This WILL be a real challenge losing weight without exercising, but I am willing to at least try. I will also be seeing a Registered Dietitian to help with the menu with the foods I am allowed to eat. I am on several restrictions with types of foods I am allowed due to medical issues. So eating healthy is also a challenge for me.

Limitations live only in our minds. But if we use our imaginations, our possibilities become limitless. –Jamie Paolinetti

A Christmas Blessing
God bless the master of your house,
The mistress also,
And all the little children
That round the table go;

And all your kin and kinfolk,
That dwell both far and near;
I wish you a merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
