Now with a aortic condition I find that I MUST get it off. So I am here and working with my friends from ...
Hi I am Vana and I have had weight problems most of my life, First I was too thin and then I became ill and have gone the other way.

Now with a aortic condition I find that I MUST get it off. So I am here and working with my friends from around the world to get on track and stay there. I have to be fit for life or I wont have much of one for very long.

I didn't get the job...but it turned out for the best, as I am now taking care of my dad and step-mom. My dad went into the hospital on Monday with CHF, and my daughter and I are taking care of my step-mom who has dementia, and isn't doing well at all.
I am managing to keep my calorie count on track, but not able to exercise. Hopefully my dad will be out soon and I can get back on schedule.
Hope you get great news on Sept. 6th!
