I'm Elaine, 59 years young and back to get back on track. I've got 60 lbs I'd like to drop. I've been successful here before but a few lbs found me again.

Hello! Oh I feel you! I gained 40 pounds about 3 years back and have been dragging it around since! Am finally losing some...but due to illness! hey...it was a rough start but I'm thankful for the "urge" to restrict calories due to nausea for 2 weeks!
I had gained back up to my original high weight of 242....am at 230 today and so very thankful.
Wishing you joy in the journey and you too, know how to get it done! Kudos for taking steps back to the starting gate!

In all things, I will acknowledge Christ, my Savior and strength of my life.
Brenda (Bren)

Hi all! I'm Brenda, 66, diabetic, heart disease, two mild heart attacks, 4 stents...Meniere's with profound hearing loss...and other issues related to arthritis and the other fun stuff that came as a result of a lifetime of less than stellar self-care.

I joined this group and promptly forgot, I think! LOL...I'd regained a lot of weight...around 40 pounds, 3 years ago...and have dragged it around all this time, while I get myself back on a path of recovery and restoration. I believe as long as there's breath in the body, there is hope...and I pray regularly for balance and stability in my latter years.

Jan! Your story scares this girl! I'm so thankful you got help...and so glad you are here...we'll be newbies together! Prayers for all as we enter this new day...

In all things, I will acknowledge Christ, my Savior and strength of my life.
Brenda (Bren)

I donít know where I got that username, maybe because I logged in with Facebook. Anyway, back in February, I fell & couldít get up, spent the night sleeping on the floor. In the morning, I got hubbyís attention, he could get me up, so he called our son, who couldít either. They called 911. In the hospital, they took blood ( I think8 slept through it). And found I had a glucose level of 599, was anemic & septic. I was shipped off to ICU, while my son was visiting. After 3 days & more tests, they put me in a regular room. I was there two days, then they shipped me to critical care in a senior care center. I was there a week, when they let me go home. It wasnít the best place on earth. We shared a toilet with 5 other people & no seat covers, ewwww. I got back home & now I am watching my glucose & taking insulin. The needles are really small so itís not so bad.. Iím on a 1500 a day caloric plan assigned by the nutritionist. I lost 25lbs. Because I was not getting my nutrients due to diabetes. Thatís fine with me. I never eat all my calories anyway, so I am never hungry. Iím also on a low carb, no sugar, plan due to the diabetes. I have to read labels like a Hawk! You would not believe how many sugars are added to our food under labeling such as dextrose, etc. Iím convinced the country wants to keep us fat!

Anyway, Hi everyone, my name is Jan! Iím an artist, trying to sell my art, but having a very hard time. I am a Ceramist & painter. I specialize in Cats, Greco Roman Statuary,fantasy & seascapes. My cats tend to be functional ceramic pieces like cups, candlepower's & soap holders. I am also a printmaker with Intaglio being most of my prints. Iím also a self professed cat lady with only one cat. I know my financial limits with the cats, but love my furry boy like a child!
