I did it once and I can do it again ! 130# off and kept off for 3 years. 80# back on now due to poor coping skills with stress. This time it stays off. I don't want to die young or be in pain until I die old. I want energy and I deserve to be happy, energetic, and fit ! I've always taken care of others, now I take care of myself. NO MORE GUILT !!! I have choices.

Update: I had actually gained 147 # from my laziness. I had been at 177# for 3 years and still felt fat and out of control, poor self esteem. October 2013 I started again because I was unwilling to totally give up on myself. I discovered I really do love myself and I am worth so much more than what I think food & laziness were giving me.

10/5/2015 Update: I have finally arrived to Onederland. 199.3# Now on to goal ! 2-15-07 spark anniversary

    TC, thank you for the goodie! You are so sweet! Actually I’m not sure I’ll have PT. My surgeon said they would evaluate me after 2 weeks to see where I am. I am doing leg exercises now. Which are a bit hard.

    I had a spinal and woke up in the surgery room! It was really not all that bad. I dozed in recovery but after I got to my room I ordered my supper! I never got sick at all. Sure was different from my last knee surgery!

    Thank you again for the prayers and thoughts. Love you, LG

    TC - I'm glad to see you are taking some time off, I know it's hard when your paycheck depends on it. Your back aching can be very demoralizing. I know I complain about mine a lot here and Darrell keeps trying to come up with suggestions but the doctors keep telling me it's arthritis and there isn't much they can do about it but you're dealing with something worse because your work isn't helping.

    Please take care.
