Only here a few short minutes and I already found someone in my same boat. :) I have had spinal issues my whole life. I now have stenosis and need surgery. I had my neck done two years ago. I have to lose at least 50 lbs of 100 lbs overall to do surgery on my L4-L5. I also have Hashimoto's autoimmune and high BP and some breathing issues. Geez, that sounds depressing but really, I am not that person. I get frustrated with the pain and with the disability BUT I would rather work to a resolution than get stuck in negativity. Just no benefit from negative vibes. So, I have joined Spark today, yesterday I ordered some nutritional shakes that I love and have had success with in the past. Due to Hashi, I cannot do soy, so I will be using Spirutien Gold. I also just reordered an exercise program that helped me get moving before. I have been bedfast many times and always had to have something that I can do sitting until I get stronger. I ordered Bodyflex dvd and exercise bar and look forward to them getting here. There is no place for me to go but up. I have determined this will get sone and so it will. I waited a long time to get insurance and get a doctor. I will do what is necessary to get this opportunity. I have seven kids. Oldest is 31 and youngest just turned nine. I need to be the mom she needs. It is already hard enough being the "old" mom. I also have three grandkids, so far. I do not want to be the do-nothing grandma. I also deserve to live the life I want to live. I am worth this effort.

I am not losing weight to improve my value or worth. I am losing weight because my life has value and worth.
