I now have health issues and must lose 60 lbs

Thursday, July 24, 2008

Never in my life have a looked this horrible, and felt the same way ta'boot. I had surgery last week and am now recuperating from it. My doctor didn't realize that I could here her but she said "She's a big girl and should weigh 130 lbs for her body structure".

Does anyone think that 130 lbs is too small for me?

I am almost 43 years old, I am 5'6", I always thought that 150 was right for me, but 130? WOW...

Well, I guess that is supposed to be the motivation that I've been looking for. Ugh emoticon

    Hi Nannychristine,
    Don't be sad, your doctor was being honest. I was 306lbs and every time I stepped into my doctors office, he would say Rena you need to loss weight. It didn't matter if I was there to get a referral for my son to go to a mental hospital or if I had a yeast infection, he said this each and every time.
    Today Nanny, I am so happy he flipped me off to do something about myself I lost 176lbs. I also had my trade union on my back and my childrens social worker (both my boys have ADHD) and my kids were terrified I would drop dead like their dad did because of diabetes type 1.
    I have a totally different life and have the energy to get things done under my own steam. My doctor is so proud of me and the social service people have not banged on my door in over 4 years now.. I also found a full time job and am taking care of my economy as my body can hold to me working now..
    Do this project because of your health, I work with people and if your health fails it is really horrible being dependant on others to come and wash you, give you clothing and make breakfast. In my job as a traveling resthome helper, people are plotted in to a time schedule and not everyone gets the help they need when they think they should have it. The freedom to choose is removed in a system that doesn't have the money to care..
