I am a wife of 32 years with 2 grown boys, ages 30 and 25. I am very busy with my two grandbabies ages 2 years and 7 months. I went back to school two years ago and this past year I have been fighting for my life with depression. And these days I feel as if I am winning the fight. I am trying to find employment in a medical office, maybe part-time. It is time for me to get on track and start to feel better about myself. I want to improve in spirt, body, and soul. I am very impressed with this web site and the people I have already meet. I collect I Love Lucy stuff and I enjoy going to movies. This summer I have plans to ride my bike more and more.
Today is 5/6/09 and just thought I would stop by and tell all that I have lost 100 pounds! I now am under 200 and trying to get used to the weight loss. I still feel large and I miss judge my way around things ( like going out wide on corners.
I have been working full time for the past year and I am just starting to fell better about me. I have been on anti-depression medicines and I am starting to fell like I want to live. I have been soul searching and trying to understand my self and starting to love myself. But it take time. Just remember neve give up, when you give up you might as will stop living.

    I saw your post on another page and wanted to say that I know you can do this without having Lap Band surgery.
    That thumbnail photo is of fat-old-me at the gym, doing SOME exercise.
    I hope you are signing in everyday and working toward your well-being. No one can give you good health but you.
