OK I am 67 years young! Mother of 3 and grandmother of 9 precious grandkids. I had Gastric Bypass Surgery in May of 2006 and lost 90 lbs. BUT I have put 20 back on SOO Here I am again!!

To begin again means that you won't give up.
To begin again means you're trying.
You can either start over and live your life
Or spend the rest of your life slowly dying.

It is never the falling that makes us fail.
It is never the pain or the crying.
You can never fail in life, my friend,
Unless you give up trying.

    Thanks for adding me as your friend. I haven't had the WLS yet...sometime over winter I will have it done. I'm working out my 6 months required by Medicare before they will pay.I have a hard time reading your page with this purple and red together...my eyes aren't that good anymore either! LOL...

    Hi! Read your food log and crytal lite doesn't count towards your water. You're also not supposed to be using products with artificial sweeteners. Just stevia. I know it's hard. I used to drink Crystal lite all day. Try pouring a pitcher of the water that you need to drink, and adding berries to it. emoticon
