Hello Everyone,

Thanks so much for stopping by my page and reading my info.

For the most part of my life I have not had a weight problem. The most I had ever gotten up to was 160lbs. Most of the time I weighed in the 140's.

In 2003 I started having health issues and the weight started jumping on. By November 2012, I weighed in at 299 in my nightshirt. One by one my health issues got me. It was harder and harder to walk because I was in so much pain. I had to leave my job earlier than I had planned.

I had given up and had thoughts of going to a nursing home. Then one day I decided to not give up. I went to Doctor after Doctor, pleading with anyone that would listen, to please help me. Most said I was having problems because I was getting older.

Please don't give me the age card. I KNEW there was something wrong with me. And, I believed in my heart that someone could help me.

I kept on and on and told them (the Doctors), that there is something wrong with me. I begged them to please fix me. I had been to 12 different Doctors. I finally found one that realized right away that I did have a problem.

I am not totally fixed, but I am currently taking prescribed vitamin D3, taking Thyroid med. and Blood pressure med.

I am down 34 lbs. since November of 2012. Today is Friday, January 01, 2021

I knew if I would put my mind to this, some more of the weight would come off. It is a slow process, but I do not want to give up.

I can use all of the encouragement I can get. Thanks.

May each of you be blessed, today and always.

    Dear Brenda:
    Thanks for the Spark Goodie. And yes - I am still active with Spark People, but not making much progress lately - have kept off 10 lbs, but not gone lower, which I need to do - lots lower. When I checked, you for some reason were not listed as a Spark Friend, so I did add you back on - and I do appreciate our staying in touch. Blessings, Larry - emoticon emoticon

    I don't want to end up a hoarder, either! I am a reader - and have started giving away the books after I read them to a lady who helps out the vets - they always need reads at the VA hospitals.

    The note from PaxtonPrincess is my DIL........she's my "favorite" --- and only DIL! Seriously, I do love her alot and she has been wonderful with my son.

    Hugs.......vista emoticon

    Dear Brenda:
    Thanks for the Spark Goodie map to travel through history. I do love history. Our son has lived in Germany the last 11 years, and it has been fun to visit and travel with he and his family to historic places. Alas - he's coming home for a year, so no trip to Europe this year, but a nice visit planned with all 3 of our grown children and all 6 of our grand kids this August 19 to September 9. Blessings, Larry - emoticon emoticon

    Brenda, I can see why you are stressed out. I am glad that you are doing better this evening. I hope tomorrow is even better for you! Our birthdays are only a few days apart. Mine is the 11th.
