I joined SparkPeople in 2008. I was on the site quite a bit. I began to slack off. I went from 155 to 209 gradually as time went on. I have had so many health problems occur. I had Graves Disease that turned to Hypothyroidism. About 1 1/2 years ago I was diagnosed with Lupus & Sjogren's Syndrome. I think I got it under control, except in February. My mom died from Lymphoma. We were very close. It was so hard on me. Then the end of March, I had a mini-stroke. Luckily, I got all my movement back. I began my weight loss again in January. I was 209. As of Sunday, Apr. 6, I weigh 177.8. I have to loss this weight for my health. I have to do it for me. I just sit the and say..... "LET'S GO FOR IT!!!"
Hi- Went to a new doctor, and he is sending me to a cardiac specialist.....My Cholesterol is way to high and he is concerned about my risk of heart attack.....when they hand you that bottle of nitrostat.....it becomes very real.......
I go to the cardiologist later this month.....still in shock......
So time to get educated, and face facts.....right?
I am a Kindergarten teacher -and live in Washington State. Have been a Spark member for a long time-but not active for many years.
