Working on it.....

I've battled weight my whole life. I am determined to win the war against excess weight. I went on my first crash diet at age 11. In the last 30 plus years I've done it all Slim Fast, Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, The Zone, Fit or Fat programs through the community. Programs only work as long as I work them. Its not all about weightloss its about healthy living. Its not about a number on the scale its about eating right and moving. There is no ending healthy living starts to day and takes a ...

BOBBI_260's father passed away on Feb. 26th.

Her and her husband has just moved into her parents house to take care of them, but they knew his time was short.

Please keep them all in prayer.

Her computer is down and she is unable to write to any of her friends.

Thank you

I saw your status that you have bronchitis for over a month. Have you gone to the doctor about it yet? I had it years ago, thought it was allergies, because I had just moved across country (CA to NC) to a very different environment. I couldn't breathe and felt extremely tired all the time. I went to two different docs (in the same office) before finding the 3rd one that figured it out. The first two were treating me for a virus! By the time I got to the 3rd one, it was severe walking pneumonia. I didn't have much lung capacity by then. She was livid and left my exam room yelling at the other doctors about the situation. She was a tough Russian lady and I loved her! So she warned me that if I ever begin to get sick like that again, to get straight to the doctor, and explain this episode. It could be life threatening. That was a huge eye opener for me, and I feel compelled to tell anyone with bronchitis, or possible pneumonia about it.

That was April of 1996, and I haven't had any issues like that since.

So thank you for letting me share. I don't want to scare you, but I wish someone would have mentioned this to me way back then. I can't hold on to information, or experience, that could possibly help someone.

I hope you feel better soon!
