Shelby, that's EXACTLY how I thought about it when I *finally" made the decision to lose the weight.

It was the thought of my 3 daughters having no mother at their weddings. No mother to guide them through the rest of life. I was simply terrified of dropping dead from a heart attack or having a stroke or getting some totally avoidable cancer. I KNEW it was not a matter of IF, but WHEN. And I *finally* realized that I didn't have to keep on putting myself at added risk for all of these dreadful, dreadful diseases. I was constantly worried about my health and I figured giving up the food, though VERY difficult, had to be easier then living in a constant state of worry. And giving up the food, though VERY difficult, had to be easier then the life I was living. My quality of life was EXTEMELY poor and I simply could not go on how I was anymore.
