This was taken last month (July) at which time I had lost about 20 pounds from my previous pictures. I hope to keep going this way.

This is a picture of my daughters with their husbands and their kids. This is why I want to get healthy, so I can be here a long time to watch the grandkids grow up.

My name is Janice and I have become obese. It didn't happen overnight and I don't expect to lose it overnight either. However, I have some underlying problems that keep me from losing weight like some people would. I was never overweight until I reached my middle 30's. Then I had a hormonal inbalance that started the weight gain. Plus I became lazy and didn't want to work out. Then when I was 45 I was diagnosed with a muscle disease called Polymyocitis. It is a rare muscle disease where my immune system is attacking my muscles. This leaves me very tired and with pain a lot of the time. As a treatment I was put on high doses of Prednisone and the weight really started to pile on. I have gained over 50 pounds with this and even though I am not taking it I still cannot get the weight to come off. I have been dieting for the past 3 weeks and still not even 1 pound off. So I need help.

Member Since: 4/14/2009

Fitness Minutes: 4,902

My Goals:
My goals is to lose about 80 pounds. Even though I am almost 100 pounds overweight I will be happy with that goal. I want to learn to eat healthier and start to implement some sort of physical activity in my routine.

My Program:
Recently my husband was diagnosed with diabetes and since we had to change our eating habits with this I decided to go on the same program. I count everything I eat and have switched to diet sodas and ice tea with splenda.

Personal Information:
I live in a small town in Pembroke, KY. I am the mother of 2 daughters who are 31 and 34. I have six grandchildren that I want to be around to watch grow up.

Other Information:
I love to be on the computer. I do so many things on it. I stay in touch with family that lives far away with my MySpace account. I have met people through my Loss Of A Child chat room that I met over 15 years ago that I still communicate with today. And now finding this site has been a god send to me.

    Prayer should be part of our lives.

    Your thumb is nearest to you. So begin to pray for those closest to you.
    The next finger is the pointing finger. Pray for those who teach, instruct and heal.

    Next finger is the tallest finger. It reminds us of our leaders. Pray for the leaders of your country. Business and Industry, administrators. They need Gods guidance.

    Your fourth finger is your ring finger. That is the weakest finger. As any piano teacher will testify. Pray for those who are weak. In trouble or in pain. They need your prayers day and night. We cannot pray too much for them.

    Lastly comes our wee tiny finger. Smallest of them all. That is where we should place ourselves in relation to God and others. The bible says. The least shall be the greatest among you. Your pinkie should remind you to pray for yourself. Time you have prayed for the other four groups, your own needs will be into proper perspective and you will be able to pray for yourself more
