Baby Steps to Keep me here for my Grandkids

This is my new into: My old one was fine but needs updated. Well I started this year off in the hospital. I ended up with pneumonia after a small cold. I cried because I knew that meant more steriods and a chance to gain wieght. Since starting Spark I am happy to say I have sucessfully kept off 30lbs in the last two years. That still doesn't help my lungs or health enough. I just started with a weight loss doctor on 1/24/09. I am taking a wholistic apporach to my life. Balancing ...
This is my new into: My old one was fine but needs updated. Well I started this year off in the hospital. I ended up with pneumonia after a small cold. I cried because I knew that meant more steriods and a chance to gain wieght. Since starting Spark I am happy to say I have sucessfully kept off 30lbs in the last two years. That still doesn't help my lungs or health enough. I just started with a weight loss doctor on 1/24/09. I am taking a wholistic apporach to my life. Balancing health, diet , exercise and stress. I know it will take time and even though I was offered and told I was a canidate for weight loss surgery I want to do this the right way so it sticks.
About me I am 41. Live in a small town in northern IL. I live with my fiance of two years. We are waiting till he has a good job with health benifits to get married. We do have a date 10/17/09. We are going to Las Vegas to get married in pink catilac by Elvis. i know it is corny but... cute. I have three older kids. Jeff age 22 who currently is in Job Corps in Indana. My daughter lives less then a mile from me. Her name is Jessica and is married and has two children Caleb age 16 months and Selene 6 months, and one on the way in Aug. Which is why I moved closer to her. My youngest is 18 and lives with his father in Wis. He is in his senior year in high school.
The last time I was end the hospital at the first of the month. the doctor said " It is only a matter of time before you die in your sleep because of sleep apnea, or you don't make it to the hospital in time. He told me if I lose weight I can get off some of the 15 meds I am on a daily basis and improve my lung function. I was listed as legally disable in 2000 at age 32. Trust me that was one of the biggest blows of my life. I want to see my grand kids grow up. I never had a grandmother they were dead by the time I was born. I want to watch them grow and help take care of them. I know you have to crawl before you walk and walk before you run. Baby steps is the key to sucess and A Journey of a 1000 miles begins with one step. Well here I go again.
