Hello and welcome. I have an artificial knee and have a ball at airports. I didn't know about a special card but have to much fun with security to get one. Keep on trucking, you are back on the right track. Good luck.

Airports are fun for me also. I have screws in my hips from a car accident. I carry a little card from my orthopod and flash it when I go through security, it shows where they are and speeds the process along. You need to get one from your Doc. I hope your weight loss picks up now for you and you are feeling better soon.

It sounds like you've had quite a time over the last year! We have a fun, supportive group called "I can't seem to lose even one pound..." that you might be interested in, also! Everyone here at SP will give a warm welcome and tips that help. I've been here almost a year and have gone up 4 pounds from my entry weight so I can relate! We just need to approach it as a journey, one step at a time...

All in good time...and with the help of my friends.

Today: I pray to shift the way I approach life, to move deliberately and consciously, to become attentive.

Hi Everyone,

I seem to be having trouble with math. I can only do addition and not subtraction, of pounds that is. At of one year (October '08) on Spark People, I had only managed to maintain my beginning weight. I then had a bacterial infection in my foot and was unable to exercise for two months, which did not help, as I continued my same caloric intake, plus add in all the Christmas goodies. I had just begun to return to the gym in January, when I had a close encounter with a patch of ice and fractured my elbow in five places. I now sport a plate and seven screws and should have fun with airport security the rest of my life. As of today, I have put on ten pounds and feel quite discouraged. I have returned to the gym on a modified basis, the past two weeks, along with physical therapy three times weekly.. I just need some encouragement!! Thanks for listening. emoticon
