My name is Penny and I live in Allen, Texas. I lived in Japan for 6 years, before moving to Texas, that's why my login name is Ichiyen, which is one yen (Penny). I am married to a wonderful man and I have 2 grown daughters, a son who is terriffic, a step son, and a beutiful granddaughter.
I have been diagnosed with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis, which is none curable lung disease. My pulmonologist wants to put me on a lung transplant list but to do that my BMI must be at least 30. In March it was 45. My insurance will not pay for a lap band surgery, so I decided to count calorie. My friend told me of Sparkpeople and I have been using it since the middle of March. I love it !!!!!!!!!!!!
I have fun putting together meals and keeping track.
