So grateful for SparkPeople! I started (again) at 280 in April, 2013, determined to lose at least 100 pounds. As of January, I lost about 30 pounds but have learned how to treat myself better, how to track, and become ever committed to long term weight loss. My long term goal is about 150.

September 2013: I have lost steadily and tracked my food and have lost about 25 pounds since my highest weight of 288. On the way to 150. I am 61, in the middle of a divorce, and have ...

I would have slapped her! How condescending! But what do you expect when 99.9999% of the people she sees older than her take at least 4 RX's?

What would happen to all these people if for some odd reason they had to pay for their drugs? They'd stop taking them!! And, they'd start feeling better as a matter of fact.

Do you remember Hurricane Katrina which hit Florida I think in the early '90's? I was working for a medical insurance company processing claims when it struck. Our home office was there and didn't have too much damage. What I remember from this event was how the Pharma companies rushed in to "help the poor people" who's meds were lost in the storm with free RX's during the crisis. GIVE ME A FLIPPIN' BREAK!! They were making certain their addicts stayed addicted.

We had the same - too much winter, not enough spring, and right into summer. I hate the gnats too. Very irritating!!

Sometimes I forget to thank
the people who make my life
So happy in so many ways.

Sometimes I forget to tell
them how much I really do
appreciate them for being an
important part of my life.

Today is just another day
Nothing special is going on

So thank you, my friend
just for being here for ME!!
