Will this be the time?! YES!!!

In March, 2008, when I first started on SP, I wrote this on my page:
I have struggled with weight all my life, and in recent years, I have not been really trying at all. I am going to give this another try. Wish me luck!

Now, two years later, after having lost between 39 and 45 pounds, depending on how you count the starting weight, I can say with confidence that I am DOING THIS! I am keeping it off, and at some point, I will probably be ready to go for another ten or twenty off!

It's funny, JUDI. I had thought you were my Spark Friend a long time ago, as I had made you mine back then, but when I looked on your spark page I couldn't tell for sure that you were mine. It's funny but in our own minds we new we were.
I see that new Eye Doctor tomorrow. I really am feeling good about her already. I don't believe anything can be changed from the way that retinal vein occlusion is right now.
Did I tell you at my appointment last week, she mentioned the possibility that I may need a kenalog shot in the eye, and that I would never be fully blind in that eye? That's when I new I wanted to see someone else. I am done no matter what with my former doctor.
I really feel that this Doctor will explain it better to me and maybe she will give me a copy of the testing she does. The Doctor who disappointed me last week, she would not give copies. She wrote on paper retinal vein occlusion with macular edema and cholesterol exudate. Quite a mouthful and eyeful of words.
I will find out tomorrow what this eye doctor will say from her own tests.
I will let you know soon what I find out tomorrow.
Blessings on your Memorial Day weekend, JUDI CUTIE! You really are that too! emoticon That's such a darling picture taken with Bernie & little Abey!

I''e been thinking of you a lot JUDI, and I've wanted to reconnect with you. I'm happy to hear you would also like to do so.
I wanted to dicuss medication with you, as I know you have a lot of knowledge on meds to do with ADD. You know so much more than me and you can tell me what has worked for you.
My diet needs moe DISCIPLINE right now.
Your Grandson is so darling. What a beautiful, handsome baby he is!
I see my Doctor Thursday, and I am going to discuss trying something again. I swore I never would but I really feel I need something. I certainly need to learn how to discipline my mind! emoticon emoticon
