Personal Information:
I live in Sacramento Ca with my hubby of 12+ years.

2015-Hubby is also working to lose weight and is helping me stay on track.

2017-after hubby's fall he lost weight while in care homes, he went from 230 to 177 at 6'2". He would only eat a few bites of the meals he was served and also got sick with C-Diff. On coming home, with the help of his VA doctor I got him over C-Diff and he started eating good home cooked meals. He has put back on some weight but is still thin.
