I CANNOT EAT THIS and be thinner!!!

Hello Everyone,
Thanks so much for stopping by my page and reading my info.

For the most part of my life I have not had a weight problem. The most I had ever gotten up to was 160lbs. Most of the time I weighed in the 140's.

In 2003 I started having health issues and the weight started jumping on and got up to 299 in my nightshirt in 2012. One by one my health issues got me. It was harder and harder to walk because I was in so much pain. I had to leave my job ...
Hello Everyone,
Thanks so much for stopping by my page and reading my info.

For the most part of my life I have not had a weight problem. The most I had ever gotten up to was 160lbs. Most of the time I weighed in the 140's.

In 2003 I started having health issues and the weight started jumping on and got up to 299 in my nightshirt in 2012. One by one my health issues got me. It was harder and harder to walk because I was in so much pain. I had to leave my job earlier than I had planned.

I had given up and had thoughts of going to a nursing home. Then one day I decided to not give up. I went to Doctor after Doctor, pleading with anyone that would listen, to please help me. Most said I was having problems because I was getting older.

Please don't give me the age card. I KNEW there was something wrong with me. And, I believed in my heart that someone could help me.

I kept on and on and told them (the Doctors), that there is something wrong with me. I begged them to please fix me. I had been to 12 different Doctors. I finally found one that realized right away that I did have a problem.

I am not totally fixed, but I am doing my own physical therapy and taking vitamins. And taking the prescribed meds.

I am down 30 lbs. since November of 2012. Today is Wednesday, November 26, 2014.

I am a lot more consistent with my diet lately. I am using the Spark Food Tracker and it has helped me a lot.

I knew if I would put my mind to this, some more of the weight would come off. It is a slow process, but I do not want to give up.

I can use all of the encouragement I can get. Thanks.

May each of you be blessed, today and always.

There are many gifts under the Christmas tree.
But the best one is the gift of your friendship.

do ask your dr about the Black Cohosh. I have a ton of different chronic conditions and tons of meds and tons of allergies so I know all about that. Good Luck.

thanks for the note on my collage - I'm afraid to do a new one. I pulled a ligament in my knee last June and could do nothing for 17 weeks and gained back about 20 lbs so I'm only down about 18 instead of 48! Funny though, bigger in some areas than ever have been and face so different than last time at this weight. Weird!

saw your note in friend feed about being up at 3:30 and washing sheets and blankets. I used to have to do that nightly together with my nightie due to night sweats - oh the joys of menopause! I found that taking Black Cohosh stopped the night sweats. Still get some flashes and such but not the night sweats. I started taking 20 mg and had to go up to 40 after a couple of years. Almost all symptoms went away for a few years and stopped taking but they came back this past year. Don't know if that's your problem or if the Black Cohosh would work but if it is the problem, might be worth the try. If I remember, it took about a week or so on the pills to notice the difference. Good luck

Thank You for visiting my blog "Who Am I?". Glad it was able to give some perspective. Most of us have normal outward appearances until we walk, speak or move. Hope it helps with your interaction with your friend!
