Losing weight for Life

I am a neonatal RN.  I love my job.  My health isn't exactly cooperating with me!  I have asthma, diabetes, hypertension, hypothyroidism, back problems, fat, and they are interferring with my job.  I have to lose weight to keep myself out of the hospital and taking less meds.  I feel like my body is rejecting me but in reality it is myself that is rejecting by overeating.  I know what a life changing diet is and am ashamed of myself for not eating how I should have been eating.  So I am here ...

Hi Donna,

I don't know if you remember me or if you are still on here regularly, but I wanted to check in with you and see how you were doing. You were always a great motivator and supporter to me. Thank you.

emoticon Glad you are doing SO great! I'm fine. Get the gallbladder out next month and I had a Root Canal yesterday that the Dentist said was really infected, so maybe I'll feel better from that now. Didn't have pain, but it was all up in the gum. Taking antibiotics and have the Crown put on in 2 weeks.

Nathan got his 3 Cat Scans back last month and they were "clean" so we are so happy. He has his hair back and his Immune system is up. Just have to keep having him checked now every 3 months.
