Be Positive. Believe in yourself.

After a pretty normal life of little gains and diets, staying in pretty good shape, I injured my knee, one operation led to another , confined to wheelchair, very lonely, I found myself in a very dark and depressed place, food became my friend. I weighed about 185, this was in 1998. I loved to eat good food. But I also found myself eating junk and bad food, I continued to eat, I would lose 10 or 15 lbs but gain it back.

After a pretty normal life of little gains and diets, staying in pretty good shape, I injured my knee, one operation led to another , confined to wheelchair, very lonely, I found myself in a very dark and depressed place, food became my friend. I weighed about 185, this was in 1998. I loved to eat good food. But I also found myself eating junk and bad food, I continued to eat, I would lose 10 or 15 lbs but gain it back. I was still having trouble walking, was declared disabled and that made my situation worse. I felt as long as I could not get around I could at least eat, and I ate and ate, I loved to cook and bake and I did it all. But living alone I ate it all too. Finally at more than 345 or so, (my scales had stopped at 300) I made an appointment with my doctor ,this was in October .2009. , I tried to crash off as much weight as I could before I went in , but I had no idea that I was as heavy as I was. I checked in and my weight was 333 lbs I said enough , I want my life back. I embarked on a weight loss program, under doctor supervision.
Started Jan. 1, 210 at 335 lbs.

05/17/2012..136..holding, never more than 3 lbs difference.
03/25/2014 Update.
I found 135 to hard to maintain. Had more corrective surgery to both hands and shoulder.
I went back to 144, to 148. I try my best to keep in that range.
I find that if I don't work out at a high cardio rate, I gain.
I find that to maintain, it's a daily thought process.
I try to eat as normal as others, but with moderation.
I don't want to go through the rest of my life avoiding foods that I want to taste. But more than anything I don't want to experience one more day at an unhealthy weight or in bad health. So in a nut shell, I will do what I have to do to keep the weight off .

Hi Tisha, Yes, I am doggie sitting until Sunday. I was also doggie sitting last week. Daughter & son-in-law went to go to a Memorial for a friend of my son-in-law's and a baptism. They were in Lancaster, PA area and went to see the play "Moses". They have seen 3 or 4 of the different plays. I have not seen any but Junie said it was wonderful. I do not know the name of where they see the plays but I know different people that have seen them. Junie said as always, they are sold out. its Amish country in that area and Junie and Jerry bought a beautiful quilt while they were there. They also bought me two Amish figures, a boy and a girl to put in my garden. They are wooden figures and they are really cute. They came back Sunday so Junie could do payroll Monday and Tuesday and now they are on their way for a family reunion of Jerry's brothers and sisters in Ocean City, MD. Grandson is here, has a college class Friday and then he is going to Ocean City. Granddaughter and hubby are coming into Ocean City on Friday too. They will be home Sunday so as last week, Cocoa has my undivided attention! lol
Hope you are enjoying your Wednesday. I know your busy with the Art Show coming up for you. Enjoy your day! emoticon emoticon June

A quote from the Dalai Lama

"There are only two days in a year that nothing can be done. One is called 'yesterday' and the other is called 'tomorrow', so today is the right day to LOVE, BELIEVE, DO and mostly, LIVE."

So all I really have to do is live for today and take each one as it comes. If I do each day well I can succeed. emoticon
