I'm just so ready to lose the weight, which is helping me stay motivated. Although I want to be thinner right now, I keep telling myself that I didn't gain all this weight in a week so I just have to be patient and take it off slowly and safely... Read more

It's been a few years but I really am so sick of being overweight and this time I have to get the weight off. I was watching "Life in the ER" or something like that and a woman in her 60's came in with stroke symptoms. That's when it dawn... Read more

All my life my overweight father told me I was fat and overweight and had me on some kind of diet or other - but, I had to eat everything on my plate! The most humilating thing that I had to do was to weigh in front of him every week. I rem... Read more

It took my blood sugar going up to close to 400 for the wake-up call to come. The threat of going on insulin has opened my eyes. I just don't want to go that route if I can control it other ways! The doctor is giving me 30 days to get it un... Read more

Well, the cruise came and went and neither my daughter or myself reached our goal. As we were packing for the cruise, we realized we didn't even try to lose the weight. We could have and should have. We both had so much fun and the 3 year... Read more

Well, yesterday was the first day I felt almost normal since my kidney stone issue on Nov. 29th. I did wear out around 5 p.m., but hopefully, with the stent out and only 3 more days of anitbiotics, I will start feeling better. All that has ha... Read more

Wow - I can't believe I spent a week in the hospital and was so sick. It was a reality check! So many people saw my fat stomach, either to listen to it or poke me with a needle that I just got to the point where, "oh well, I can't stop them". ... Read more

My son has invited me to lunch tomorrow with him and his family to his favorite restaurant. So I decided to be pro-active and go to their website and see if, by chance, they had the calorie counts. Oh my gosh, the calories are off the chart. ... Read more

I had jury duty today and my daughter needed my car, her's stopped working, so she dropped me off at the courthouse. When I was through, I called and asked her to come pick me up. She was about 20 min. away, so I told her I would walk around o... Read more
