Hello, not sure if I'm posting correctly or not...this being my first post on Sparks. I still have to figure out lots of things yet. Just call me Choco or Tams...everybody does. Not sure what my personal goals are just yet.

Yes, I could lose some weight...no doubt about that! BUT that's easier said than done when you get around with a walker!

I'm 43 yrs old, happily married for over 20 years, and have one son age 16.

Became disabled Jan. 09, 2009 and except for brief moments (namely going to the bathroom and back) with help of my walker I'm pretty much stuck here in my recliner. I try to get out to walk on the sidewalk when
not too windy, too cool, and all the other weather related pain inducers. Most I've managed is 4 houses down and back...and slow getting there and back!

I'm doctor ordered to be on a 2000 kcal ADA
diet. Type II Diet Controlled diabetes. But I've gained so much it's no wonder I became diabetic!

I used to be 128lbs and
since becoming disabled last year I have gone up to 198lbs.

And no idea how to change that under the circumstances.
Doc doesn't seem to have any answers either as yet. But
I'll keep bugging him. I'm persistent if nothing else!

Anyway, when I sort of get things figured out both for myself and for how things here work, perhaps I will be able to set some actual goals and steps for reaching them.

I've lived in Idaho for the last 10 years...Mtn Home. No, we're not military (everybody asks with the airforce base being here). Just chose a small town life in which to bring up our son. Originally from Texas but recruited by one of the Boise hospitals. And now I can't work anymore, but that is how we came to live in Idaho. And no plans to make any change!
