I am 46 years old, married for 21 years in July, 2014. I have a 20 year son, who is my world. I have been overweight since I turned 11 years old. As a teenager, I joined Weight Watchers and lost 12 lbs. We couldn't afford it, so I continued to gain weight, Most of my early ages, I weighed about 150 lbs. Then I got pregnant; and he was BIG. After that it was 165 +.

In 2004, I had a blood clot in my leg. I was in the hospital for a month. I lost about 20 lbs. from about 200. After I got out of the hospital, I was told to lose the weight or the clots would come back. I lost down to 155.

Two years later, I begin to gain again. My dad died. I just gave up on eating right. I went up gradually to 209 around 2013.
My mom was diagnosed with Lymphoma in 2006, but beat it.

In 2013, it came back, she couldn't beat it. She went on hospice Apr 2013. That's when I really started gaining.
In January 2014, my husband decided he needed to lose weight, so I said "OK, Let's go for it!" So we started our weigh in on a Sunday morning.

That first month I went down to 180.8 (16 lbs.). But my mom died on Feb 21 (day after her 76th birthday). That is so hard on me. We were SOOO close. I have lost 3 more lbs since then, but have been about 177 for 3 weeks.

I now have so many health problems that my weight could kill me if I don't control it. That is what I think.

I was diagnosed with Lupus about 1 1/2 years ago. Also Sjogren's Syndrome. On March 25 (2 1/2 wks ago) I had a mini-stroke. That don't know why I have a blood clot in my brain. All exams on heart and main arteries are normal.

So I am going to keep trying. I have to. So.....

My Program:
I started back on my weight loss in January 2014. I was about 209 lbs., the highest I have ever been. My husband wants to lose weight also. We change how we eat food, some of what we eat. He continues to eat unhealthy foods, but I try to eat healthier.
My health makes it hard for me to cook every night, so we "snack". I try to eat healthy snack.

As of weigh in Sun, Apr 6, 2014, I weighed 177.8. I have been at that weight for 3 weeks.

I love to read Christian related books. I love Janette Oke books.

I love to walk, but my husband won't let me go alone. He won't go most of the time. I have nobody to go with me.

I work at a fast food restaurant, but don't eat much there. I only work in the mornings, so I wait til I get home.

    Dropping by to say hi and let you know you are being thought of today, I appreciate your ongoing friendship and support on my blogs!

    I Said A Prayer For You Today

    I said a prayer for you today and know God must have heard.
    I felt the answer in my heart although He spoke no word.
    I didn't ask for wealth or fame, I knew you wouldn't mind.
    I asked Him to send treasurers of a far more lasting kind.
    I asked that He'd be near you at the start of each new day.
    To grant you health and blessings and friends to share your way.
    I asked for happiness for you in all things great and small.
    But it was for His loving care I prayed the most of all.

    Thanks again for all your support on my blogs!

    Hope you enjoy the following Poem. "I Asked the Lord to Bless You"

    I asked the Lord to bless you
    As I prayed for you today
    to guide you and protect you
    as you go along the way...

    His love is always with you
    His promises are true
    and when we give him all of our cares
    you know He will see us through

    So when the road you are traveling on
    seems difficult at best
    just remember I am here praying
    and God will do the rest.
