My name is Faye and as my Spark name states I am OVERWEIGHT. I can only state that 3 times in my life have I been at my right weight. The summer before 12 th grade my mother let me go to our family doctor to get medicine to help. I wish I could do that again. I was so proud. The weight came back later plus more. I wasted so many years of my life because I was fat. I didn't want to do anything that would draw attention to me. I now know I would have done things differently. Anyone reading this... Know what matters in life. Your weight is not who you are so do everything in life that you want to do. Weight is important for your health. Overweight is bad for your heart, knees, state of mind, and more. It's great to have Sparkpeople so you can have support and encouragement for the road ahead of you. I have a lot of weight to lose but in the meantime I have a loving husband, 5 children, 18 grandchildren, 11 great grandchildren, and one on the way. I love babies and seeing all their energy. I just need to learn how to bottle the excess energy and sell it. Instance millionaire!!! LOL

    It was great hearing from you. I'm very sorry for all that you have been through. The past 2 years have been pretty hard on me to. Fisrt I got a blood clot in my aorta and was out of work for 4 months. Two months later I had L4 rupture and was out 4more months. One month after going back to work my youngest son who was 5 at the time was diagnosed with Kawasaki disease and I was out with him for 2 months. I finally thought everything was getting back to normal when I ruptured a disk again. I really cant afford to be out of work again right now so I keep trying to put if off as long as possible but I dont know how much longer I can do that.Sometimes I feel really down because I have to ask people for help with the little things like putting on shoes,or picking up things that I drop in the floor. I hate complaining all the time I feel like people get tired of hearing it. Well you take care of yourself and keep in touch and let me know how you are doing. emoticon

    Hi, thanks for the comment. I am sorry to hear about your leg and nerve damage. I don't think that anyone can understand how difficult it is for anyone with any sort of nerve damage to get exercise and move. Does your leg feel like it is numb or asleep? Just wondering what others experience as far as feelings. It has taken me a long time to get determined, and get the will power. I struggle every day with it. I know you have it in you. You made the first step by joining and admitting that you need to do something. I think that is great! We can do this together! emoticon
