Well, they didn't kill me, I'm a lot tougher than that. What it's done is forced me to exercise now, where I used to stay right at my goal weight by being active, and doing my usual strength training.
I have been exercising for a week, and have lost five pounds, but no inches yet. I think my next step is to build my own personal Dojo, and spend an hour or so in it. (I hold a Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do that I picked up when I was stationed in Korea).
The good thing is that one of the Sheriff's Deputy's
here in Hudspeth County, is a good personal friend of mine, and also holds a black belt. She wants to work out with me, including sparring, as soon as I get the Dojo built. THAT just might get me back to my old weight and shape in short order. Brie

HOOAH to all my brothers and sisters who have worn the
uniform!
My name is Sabrina, " Brie " for short. I am 59, retired Army,
and live on 80 acres, with my own airstrip. I fly both
ultralights, and " real " aircraft, one of which it the restored
1940 Taylorcraft BC-65 that I am standing next to in the
bottom photo on my Sparks page. The upper photo was taken
Six years before the V. A. Lied to me, telling me that in order
to treat a broken Tibia, they would have to put a Titainium rod
down through it's marrow ,when, I found out later from several
doctor friends of mine, that a cast would have done just fine.
In the month after the procedure, I went from 190 pounds and
a size 14, to 265 pounds, and a size 24 due to the fact that
they shut down my Thyroid when they put the rod in my leg.
The reason they lied to me? They wanted to demonstrate the
procedure.
Once they realized the damage they had done to me, they
put me on Synthyroid for the rest of my life. In time, being on
the Synthyroid took me down to 235 pounds, and a size 20.
Three weeks ago, I bought a recumbent exersize bike, and
a Nordic Track cross country ski machine, and I am now
down to 230. The photo of me next to the plane is me at
My current weight. Brie
