Wow, just read what I wrote 10 years ago and boy things have sure changed. I am 54 now and no longer live in the country. We moved to the city 9 years ago. I like it here. Sometimes I miss the acreage, but when its mosquito season I am really glad to not be there. My boys are almost grown - 26, 17 and 16. I miss having little ones around. I really miss the cuddles.
My health has really suffered over the last 10 years. I have Trigeminal Neuralgia and its been very painful. In April 2019, I died, was relived and then lapsed into a coma for 10 days. When I woke up I couldn't walk or sleep and everything just seems to be different. Lots of leg pain, a spastic bladder, limited leg movement, etc. The list goes on and on. I am beginning to wonder if I will ever be me again.
So hear I am trying to reclaim my life. I can only walk about about a block before my legs refuse to move. Its not muscular. So its understandable why I am at my heaviest. I need help and encouragement.

Lori



I am a 44 year old mother of three sons. I live in British Columbia, Canada and my husband, sons and four cats (they just seem to keep showing up). I am very short so I have always found it hard to keep weight off. Even when I was 109 pounds (high school) I wore a size 9 and my clothes were tight. My doctor says he will be happy to see me at 120 but I know when I get there he will say to lose more. I am a stay-at-home mom and we will on 5 acres in the country.

For the last few years I have been under enormous stress which has added about 60 pounds to my already obese figure. I have been taking Wellbutrin for 5 years and it helps a bit. I have major in-law issues that I am sure everyone is sick and tired of hearing about but I need to vent.

On March 19th, 2010, I started taking Meridia to help with weightloss. I am hoping it will help. My doctor will only let me take it for 3 months. I am hoping in that time that I can lose enough weight that I will feel more confident and want to keep the weight off. I have been a binge eater for many years and I read that Meridia may help.

I need LOTS of support and have lots of support to offer. Leave me a message if you would like.

    Thanks for commenting on my blog. Funny thing you mention chicken nuggets from McDonalds...When I purchased the new baby chicks from the feed store, they put them in something that looked exactly like a Happy Meal box! Not sure what kind of a message they were trying to send there but my kids thought it was pretty funny. emoticon
