I am a woman in my midlife, according to my family, But in truth I have a mind of a 30 year old. I love to walk, talk and knit and do other crafts. Love to cook and try to make meals I can eat. Have sever allergies, I have a sleep disorder and have fibro. Also I love to real mysteries and also am very clumsy too.
I use to be 365 lbs. Last Feb 2008 I was 168.. I was to so happy and proud of myself. Then I had emergency surgrey on gall bladder. 2 operations lapsone toscopic didnt work, gall bladder so badly infected it attached to the liver. Was in the hospital 9 days.. The gall bladder open when the doctor try to do it lapascopic, the stone was over an inch and half with a lot more stones and gravel. The gall bladder was triple the size. The nurses told me how luck I was to get there in time, little did they know of the doctors not sending me in to the hospital right away.
I had many complications, fever, blood clot, I gain weight and didnt eat in hospital.. went up to 184. I was sick and angry..
watch what I ate and then didnt care when I started to eat.. the weight while being good was rising. I went back to 213. I then found out I had more complications sleep apena , fibro, and others.. with sleep apena is how I fracture the bone in the knee cap. I keep walking into things while getting up in the middle of the night.. The doctors told me I am depressed, had a biospy of my cervix, too much bleeding. THank God that is okay..
I came here to lose weight and Instead, I made a lot of great friends. Losing slowly, thanks to the extra steroids for asthma too.. I am hoping now that the brace is off, have cpap machine to sleep.. I will heal and lose my weight again.. now I hurt the other foot and trying to get better.. Have boot on the left foot now and having lots of problems with the foot and ankle and shin.. Tripped a few times same place, It got my hubby to clean his room.
I have been trying to clean out my Art Craft room for a while,, Was in a bad car accident on 3/18/10.. Was hit on the drivers side and 1ft of the car door went into me.. Thank goodness no broken bones but hurt with black and blues and muscules and more damage,, hurt the whole left side of my body.. So off I had to take medications to help me..Still on and off taking Medication to help me sleep once in a while .(only when I am very bad) both hips hurt shoulder foot, knees both and ribs and was seeing double and hazy for about 6 weeks too,, Was in Phyical Therapy and waiting for my treatment tooo.. can raise the shoulder when I get to a certain point I am in pain and it runs down the side and up to the neck.. Foot is out of the boot and in an air cast.. still on and I keep going ... why 2 knees and hips , the door push me into the center console where the shift was and the door hit the left side.. I was pinned in the car and scared.. but luck to be here.. Weight hasnt changed but right now that is okay I am here ALIVE and with my family and you my friends ..
I have also been falling down a few time and caught myself and other caught me before I fell too.. I went down a few stairs and land on the plank bottom step all cut up and bruised and black and blues all over and fracture my finger in June and working on getting the finger to bend.
This week I will be finishing my physical therapy since the car accident.. Hoping I get back to being me soon..

Since I wrote this my mother has been very sick.. she has been in the hospital for 3 months and home.. I am finding out that everyone should keep their blood pressure low and they sugar normal.. or CKD Chronic Kidney Disease will happen and if you go to stage 4 dyalisis is the next phase... Mom learn the hard way and keeps saying why me .... My faith is strong and my will power goes up and down but weight the steady holding ...
I wish everyone knew the fact before but its been since April mom got sick and finally out of the hospital in July the past few weeks is a challenge to make sure she is eating right now,,,, My mother passed away 5/10/12 she dehyrate and they hospital gave her 6 bags of fluids and they let her drink and eat everything she went into CHF and the kidneys shut down only to take mom 16 days later
My health is the same and I am going crazy with grief but keep coming online to my family here hugs and thanks for listening
My Goal is to lose the weight, keep healthy, and enjoy all the wonderful nature we have.
I love to walk, I eat right, I love my fruits and veggies and I eat a lot of whole wheat also drink lots of water. I love to go out walk with friend too, but If no one is available I will go by myself.. Walking is my meditation and time to clear my head.

Fun Spring Holiday Workout
1 Dye about 100 eggs, raw preferably, bright and bold colors. Eggs outdated by a few months or more work best.
2 Go outside and bunny hop around the yard hiding the eggs. Squat to put each egg in place.
3 Gather a few good natured friends or family members you don't particularly care for.
4 On the count of 3, run to find the eggs.
5 Upon reaching an egg, squat down to pick it up, stand, and pitch it at the closest opponent. Alternate arms to insure an equal work out on both sides.
6 Repeat until all eggs are broken beyond re-throwing.
7 Don't forget that cleaning (up) can be a workout in and of itself.
And that is a wonderfully fit way to celebrate any spring holiday. Aren't you ready to hop to it?

I have missed so many of you. especially those of you who helped me get started as o knew nothing about anything on here. Dee, I just read your Spark page and learned you have been thru a lot more than I knew of when I met you. I always get frustrated when I see what happens to so many good people but know that is life. Still don't like to accept that.
I am so sorry your mother has passed away. I took care of my mother too as far as what I could do. 5 years and I miss her like it was yesterday. I was going thru a box from her house and was going to call her about something i found, so hard to remember she is gone. Took care of husband, John too, it is a year now and I still feel shocked over and over when I remember he is gone. Now time to take care of us i guess but we have our memories.
What happened to the Caretaker team? I see one woman has posted how alone she feels.Never thought that team would ever quit. I see other teams that have no leader that is sad but I have not been able to keep up on all teams either tho I chose them all because they relate to me. I am trying to keep my posting down but as you see I am a blabber mouth. Take care of yourself, I think of you gals often that were always there, good people.
