Hello, I am new to this team. I have profound bilateral sensorineural hearing loss. I have hearing aids but no longer think they are helping as well as they did. I just learned the cost of recommended hearing aids is $6400.00. So I won't be getting new aids as insurance does not cover the aid just the tests. The good new is I can speech read pretty well as my hearing loss has been since I was a young child. I have functioned in hearing world and don't know ASL.

I also have about 30 pounds to lose thus Sparkpeople to help with motivation.

Look forward to meeting the folks in this group

Hi I am De, and I am new to this team, but I am not new to SparkPeople. I have severe bilateral hearing loss, that began about 18 months ago due to auto-immune diseases. I wear hearing aids but, they honestly don't help that much. I would love to learn ASL.

I live in Eastern Connecticut and I have been married for over 20 years to wonderful man, and we have two amazing sons, Ali Jack is 14, (I am so proud that attending Harvard University!) and Zeyd is going to be 7 on Valentine's Day (he is the best Valentine's Day present I have ever received!). We have lived all over the world, and enjoy learning about new cultures. We might be relocating to Boston soon to support Ali Jack at school.

I lost 175 pounds but, regained back 70 pounds emoticon due to a combination of complications from the auto-immune diseases, feeling sorry for myself and lots of comfort/emotional eating. However, I recommitted myself to making healthy choices, and got back on SP. Since then, I have lost 20 pounds of the 70 I regained emoticon ! I have 60 pounds to go until I am at my goal and I am doing it!

I look forward to being active here and interacting with the members of this team.

Eat when you are hungry, eat what you want, stop when you're satisfied.
