    Welcome to Friends in Recovery Team! WOW..I read your post on the team thread and I felt like I was reading my story...right down to the heel spurs! Never had surgery to lose weight but have struggled with yo-yo dieting a good part of my life!! Injuries..including the bone spurs have tripped me up many times however, if i had really wanted to i could have rehabbed from them instead of being lazy and gaining the weight back!! Please feel free to stop by my page and add me as a friend if you like!!

    hugs..Carol

    Thanks so much for your thoughtful and insightful comment on my blog (Is Obesity Curable)! Why do you not have a blog? You are a wonderful writer, and I'm sure have many stories of overcoming addictions, and how it is a work in progress. I would love to read it.
    I think, as you did, it's easy to replace one addiction with another. My parents quit smoking when they are around 60. But they found candy, my mom even called it their "new cigarettes." After a few years of eating those little penny candies, they had both put on weight, and that's when they started getting healthy "weight-wise" too. I was so proud of them for changing their lives, even as old as they were. They both exercised and lost a lot of weight. Mom never got the chance to prove she could maintain her loss however, dying at the age of 65 of a sudden heart attack. Dad did though--he lived until he was 83, dying from prostate cancer 4 years ago. He not only maintained his weight, eating healthy, he continued to exercise, taking long bike rides well into his 70's. Today, I ride that bike and I hope Dad knows and is proud of me for changing my life too!
