Trying to get healthy

I have never had to lose weight before---I've always been kind of 'average'. But I discovered that if you don't work at your health, it will start to head in the wrong direction. First I gained ten pounds, and then ten more was easy to gain over a several years. A few more years and a few more pounds. Then two surgeries in one year and boom----I found that being a little overweight and then a lot overweight had become medically obese. And I was suffering the health consequences. I was sick all ...
I have never had to lose weight before---I've always been kind of 'average'. But I discovered that if you don't work at your health, it will start to head in the wrong direction. First I gained ten pounds, and then ten more was easy to gain over a several years. A few more years and a few more pounds. Then two surgeries in one year and boom----I found that being a little overweight and then a lot overweight had become medically obese. And I was suffering the health consequences. I was sick all the time and was so exhausted taking a walk seemed like climbing Everest. In fact, I was so wimpy, I had to lose ten pounds before I could even start walking again. So I'm just AMAZED that people on the Biggest Loser can exercise so hard when they first start out. I saw the guy who won on the TV show 'The Doctors' and he couldn't even lift weights that weighed the same as the pounds he had been carrying around while working out.
I'm just in awe of people who've been able to lose more weight and get healthy. I love to read their stories on sparkpeople. I hope I can hold up as well as they have done.

You sound like me. I am having my thyroid drawn today, AGAIN. They cut my levothyroxin from 100 to 88 and in two weeks I put on 20lbs. Add depression and it's wonderful meds, living in a state that rains or snows 6 months of the year, and a chronic illness, well things seem a bit down. This is day 2 on sparkpeople, yesterday was a complete failure, so I felt like one.

I don't do computers well so trying to find someone to "chat" w/ this way is probably wrong too. Yikes.
