This is not my first time trying to lose weight nor my first time here, I use to weigh 520 lbs. That was nearly 10 years ago but getting under 300 has been a long time goal for me and I started gaining weight again with some health problems that kept me from being able to do much.

So I am back hoping for a miracle, a miracle of learning to eat the way I need to and being healthier. Learning to let go of the past and moving on to what is ahead and that is not easy for me. Some may not see that as a mirale but so far I have not learned it or I wouldn't be having to make even more changes, this time though I am going at it slower and taking it easy. I think it might stick that way.

Feeling better then I have for some time I am finally starting to get near to what I should be eating, Starting slow seems to be working for me very well. I lost a couple of the lbs I had gained while sick from the surgery and not caring what I ate. For this surgery I am getting things I can have to take better care of myself and make it easier for Richard to feed me the right way.

Thank GOD I am not feeling hungrey, hope it lasts for a long time. Espeically at night.

Jan.17, 2010---Tax season is usually hard on my diet and my hubby. He is retired and takes on all the house work and cooking when I work from Jan-April doing taxes. This year I have a plan and am praying I do better.

Still trying to get the swimming going better and have a plan for that to. Praying GOD helps me get this going really good again. I am sure HE will.

April 10, 2010: Plans just don't work out sometimes. I have had to drop the swimming because of money, (the Y raised their rates) and walking is really hard for me. I manage a little but really have to work at it. Glad only 5 more days of tax season, then I can walk when I want to more and maybe do even better.
