Been doing my best to stick in their and make it . As much as I have going it amazes me I can stick to this . Expecially right now when times are at the toughest. My brother in law is getting ready to have a liver transplant He suffers from Hematomacromatosis. Then on top of all this we got word that my sister who is only 41 is in the early stages of lung cancer.
I have been doing great with my food and water . I didnt feel like doing exercise this morning but I made myself do a 4 mile walk slim watp. It sure did kick my butt. I feel good that I did it and I did the whole thing. i am so glad that I have this site to keep me going and making me feel like I do make it. Thanks to all you lovely people here I couldnt do it with out the encouragment.

Awesome! It's hard to put ourselves at the top of the list of things to take care of when there is family to tend to. Good job for sticking with it through all the tough times.

Wow. You've got a lot going on.

When there are these types of things going on, the ones that you have ZERO say in, it's a great comfort to really stick to our own health plan. Makes you feel so much more - grounded and in control. Great job. Just great.

If anyone would have told me a few years ago, that I, *me* would actually find comfort in eating well, I would have thought that they were insane. Insane. Who knew all along, that NOT eating while stressed is the most comfort of all??

Wishing everyone a speedy and fully recovery.

Sorry to hear about your BIL and sister, and good for you for sticking with it.

I'm so sorry to hear about your relatives! My boss had a liver transplant several years ago (he was 65 at the time), and is doing well today. It's amazing when you think about it! TG they caught the lung cancer in its early stages, best of luck to her (and bil) in a quick recovery.

and WOW to you for sticking to your plan through all that AND losing weight! that is major.

Thanks Jae165, Dragonwoman64, Ubergirl, Rockinrobin, Matafleur, Michelle, Tai, Thistoo, Beverlyjoy, Findingfawn, Gumboot, Ruthxxx . Has it been a long day went to see my BIL and he is doing good . He sleeps alot. My sister is going to see her Doc and get a second Opion. She wants to be sure before she goes nuts.

This is only a tip of the things I got going on here sometimes I dont know if I am comming or going. With the 3 kids and their Problems I am on the go and then you add everything else and it is a jam packed day.

Everything is good though. I was sitting here the other day and thinking boy am I crazy to do this now. But then I thought So when Ever is a good time to decide to take care of me and loose weight. Miles well be now. I wont be any good to no one If my health dont improve.

Thanks to everyone for the encouraging words .
