Trying it Again

This is my third time trying to lose weight in as many years. I got down to 190 for my wedding a year and a half ago, but then was diagnosed with thyroid cancer shortly after and then had surgery for a herniated disc in my neck. I was off work for five months and during that time I ballooned back up to almost 250 lbs. This time I am going to make it to my goal of 170 and I am going to keep it off...as they say, third time's a charm.

Trying it again, part II
September 7, 2010: It's been a while since I've been on Sparkpeople. In the several months since I was last here, I learned that the damage from the herniated disc is pretty much permanent, and I have been medically retired. It has been difficult for me to accept that. I am tired a lot, I have constant pain in my neck, shoulders and left arm. I have severe weakness in both of my arms, and numbness in the fingers of my left hand. It has been very difficult for me to do much of anything, including exercise. I am going to try to make a go of it though. I have gained so much since my thyroid surgery. I need to lose back the weight I've gained. I know I will feel better about myself if I do.
