Hi, My name is Kathy and I am a creative person, intellectual, always thinking, a mother, grandmother, caretaker, artist, scholar, so many things...but what I am NOT is thin! I used to be thin once upon a time long time ago...but not now. I weigh 291 lbs. and am not very healthy. I would love to be healthy again. I was hurt in a car accicent 4 years ago and have a titanium steel rod where my femur used to be so I have a bad limp and a lot of pain in my knee and leg. I also have a plate and pins in my right wrist but that causes only mild pain from time to time. So, if the weight came off, the leg wouldn't hurt so much, now would it?

3/31/08 I learned this week that my knee hurts so much because I no longer have any cartilege left; therefore, bone against bone is causing all the pain. I opted for a cortisone shot...it worked wonderfully for about 2 days and I guess I overdid it because on the third day I was in unbearable pain. Also, my knee was really swollen. Well, it is a better but I am trying not to overdo it.

My weight is finally down to 280 lbs. (from 300 lbs. in December). When I started here around January 15th, I weighed 292 lbs. It has taken me 2 and 1/2 months to lose 12 lbs.!!! I was hoping to have more off but I am grateful for that loss. I just lost 2 lbs. the last few days. I hope to keep losing more and my goal is a total of 50 lbs. for the year. Things like holidays, birthdays and other parties where there is food and sweets trip me up and I end up going off my healthy eating plan. I have a party in two days I am VERY nervous about it...Kathy
