I have multiple sclerosis, which makes it hard for me to get much exercise and harder for me to lose weight than it would otherwise be.

My first husband died in 2000 and I was unable to eat much for a couple of months. I lost 50 pounds (the wrong way) but then when I was able to eat again I gained 75! I remarried in 2003 and recently divorced, which is why I switched from the photo of me with ex hubby on our wedding day to the pic of the kitten in the little box of sadness. I'm not ...

My first husband died in 2000 and I was unable to eat much for a couple of months. I lost 50 pounds (the wrong way) but then when I was able to eat again I gained 75! I remarried in 2003 and recently divorced, which is why I switched from the photo of me with ex hubby on our wedding day to the pic of the kitten in the little box of sadness. I'm not really that sad anymore, just thought that pic was cute and appropriate.

I quit smoking in December of 2006 and immediately gained 30 more pounds. I would still encourage anyone with MS to quit smoking because smoking has been found to be strongly linked to MS progression. I would encourage anyone to quit smoking just because it's really bad for you, but especially MS patients who want to keep from needing to be in a wheelchair.

My Goals:
I want to lose 70 or 80 pounds. I think that this will help me in a lot of health related areas, including helping me to sleep better and taking some pressure off of my messed up knees. I'm also hoping that it will help improve my MS situation.

“Look at a day when you are supremely satisfied at the end. It’s not a day when you lounge around doing nothing; it’s when you’ve had everything to do, and you’ve done it.” – Margaret Thatcher

Lesson: You might sometimes dream about a slow day, but you know you thrive when things get crazy. Don’t rest on your laurels when you could be challenging yourself to do and be better.

Have a fantastic weekend.
Pat

“Hope begins in the dark, the stubborn hope that if you just show up and try to do the right thing, the dawn will come.”

Dear Lord,

With my whole heart I ask
That you look after my friends
Guide them in troubles
Lead them when lost
Give them your ear
When they just need to talk

Lend them a hand
When they’ve nowhere to turn
Show them a new road
When a bridge has been burned

Teach them to smile
When everything seems bad
And show them there is happiness
After all that seems sad

Dear Lord,
This is my prayer
I hope that every word you can hear
This message is from my heart
For my friends are so dear

Amen.


May you have a blessed weekend.
Pat
