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.

    Stopping by to check on you. Hope you are feeling great but will be happy with a "good". This has been the strangest year. Too much happening, our world had gone crazy. I am doing good to get through the day. I know we must remain strong, in our faith and resolve. We need to remain kind and compassionate to our fellowman. You always look so calm and at peace, you calm my soul and motivate me. Stay strong and safe.
