There is a lot of talk about insurance these days, this is my take on it. I have been with out insurance now for almost three years. In the beginning it was very scary. Then I started to deal with each problem one at a time. I had a very bad knee,even though I had surgery on it there was no relief.( It got worse) that is the reason I lost my insurance,my job required me to be on my feet and walking all day. At the time I was forty lbs over weight so the first thing that had to happen was I had to lose weight. I lost twenty lbs by just dieting (cutting back). I looked for natural alternatives for the medications I was taking. I took meds for pain,high cholesterol, depression,and not being able to sleep. I am happy to say that I was able to go off all my prescriptions. I'm not saying that anyone else should do this but it has worked for me. For the last several months I have been trying to get the rest of the weight off with no success. I have been at this weight for over two years. Since starting Sparkpeople two weeks ago I have lost three lbs and am walking every day. I will update this blog every few weeks
