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 health makes it hard for me to cook every night, so we "snack". I try to eat healthy snack.

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.

    Good Morning Lisa

    Dropping by to wish you a Blessed Easter Weekend and share a special Easter Poem....

    Easter Means Eternal Life

    A perfect God demands a perfect justice;
    He cannot let us get away with sin.
    We used God’s gift of our free will to trespass,
    So heaven’s gates were closed; we couldn’t get in.

    Our sin required our blood, a sacrifice,
    To atone for all the wrongs that we had done.
    "But I love them!" cried our Father, filled with sorrow;
    "I’ll send my only Son to be the one."

    Good Friday marks the slaying of our Jesus,
    The unblemished lamb, the perfect sacrifice.
    He took our guilt and blame upon Himself,
    So we could be with Him in paradise.

    On Easter morning, he came back from death;
    He vanished from the tomb, the empty grave.
    His resurrection means eternal life
    For us, the ones he came to earth to save.

    This summarizes all the Easter story
    And because of it, we’ll be with Him in glory.

    I leave you with a special Easter Poem, hope you enjoy!

    Easter Love

    On Easter we celebrate love,
    love coming down from heaven,
    love blanketing the earth
    in a transforming embrace;
    unique and infinite love,
    giving more than we can imagine
    for us, to cleanse our sin,
    a perfect sacrifice, Lamb of God,
    the walking, talking Word.
    He is teacher, role model, friend,
    this God in human form,
    dying, then rising from the dead,
    proving all who believe
    will also rise
    to have eternal life, with Him,
    Lord of all.
    Oh, Happy, Happy Easter!

    Dropping by to say hi and wish you a great weekend ahead, also want to say emoticon for your support on my blogs, your friendship is appreciated...Hope you enjoy the following poem.. emoticon

    The Gift Of Friendship

    Friendship is a priceless gift
    That cannot be bought or sold,
    But its value is far greater
    Than a mountain made of gold -
    For gold is cold and lifeless,
    It can neither see nor hear,
    And in the time of trouble
    It is powerless to cheer
    It has no ears to listen,
    No heart to understand,
    It cannot bring you comfort
    Or reach out a helping hand -
    So when you ask God for a Gift,
    Be thankful if He sends
    Nor diamonds, pearls or riches,
    But the love of real true friends.
