As many of you know life put me through some curves on my journey. September 2011, I had a knee scope done. In October I got a blood clot and had to be put on Coumadin. As well as many other problems with it over this time frame. I was on that for 10 months. For those of you that don't know this medication (and I hope you never do) I had to watch my Vitamin K which everything green has lots as well as other foods. So I ended up just eating what I could and moving on. When I tried to stay on plan my levels were all over the graph. So to keep my levels where they were supposed to be I didn't eat greens. I had a test kit to use at home and tested weekly. Kinda like a diabetic would use. Needless to say I gained back all that I had lost! On October 29, 2012 I started back with SP and all my wonderful friends. I've gone back to my original goal which now was 48 pounds to remove on this journey! Oh yes, I forgot to mention I was taken off my hormone medication and can never take it again. Which is a blessing, when I thought it would be horrible! Of course I'm going through all the symptoms of menopause that I would have before! But I'm smiling! I used to drop weight fast.......... Well that is the case again. Since October 29th I have lost 19.25 pounds of the 48. I appreciate everyone who stood by me and kept in touch during this difficult time in my life! I may not post a lot but know that I am here! My life is very busy with being guardian of two adopted, adult special needs sons, my Mom who is 91 (and the most beautiful person I know) and a Mother-In-Law of 86 who is very dear! having all the benefit of the web site and all the wonderful people that I have met! I'm in it "To Win It" this time!
