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, I am trying to catch up on my return from NJ. Emma was such a wonderful friend. Emma was in the home for 8 years but we go back to 1986 when we met. I was so glad that I got there even tho she was unresponsive, I did talk to her and she died 20 minutes after I went back to the hotel to try and get some sleep. I told Emma I would be back in the early morning. This is going to be a change for me, I was always thinking about what clothes Emma needed or what she liked to eat that I would buy for her. We talked on the phone every day for 8 years except for the last 6 months and then I had to call the staff to help Emma with the phone or put her near the phone. I will miss her. I have so much to catch up on. Enjoy your day! emoticon June

Hi Tisha: Thank you so much for the Anniversary Goodie, It was our 47th, I am looking forward to our 50th which will be March 6th 2018, that is also the same year my youngest GD graduates from High School so I know we will be spending time in Florida with her, but I also have a long term goal weight set for my 50th and I'm going to be working hard to make it, that means I have to loose 155 lbs in 3 years, so that very doable.

Sorry I've rambles on, Thank You again for your Goodie and note.
