My name is Ave. I joined this group but didn't realize it was more than just those 140 char updates. I get lost on Sparks so occasionally when I get an email link I try to catch up.

I am a retired artist and have had many jobs throughout the years, worked on Wall St, the WTC,home health attendant, red cross shelter manager, managed restaurants and catering halls as well as doing sign painting and murals. Pain has prevented me from being as creative as I was so haven't painted in a few years but focus on doing digital art touchups for printing and did some jewelry making but got into selling art prints and jewelry online from auctions.

My time online is usually doing work - recreating inventory that was lost last year in a computer crash after being hacked. I lost over 400K files and most were picture files needed to post sales and auctions with so things have backed up and sales are down to nearly zilch and I have a lot of merchandise, yet lost my groove so to speak. keeping busy online has been a way to deal with chronic pain however my attention span is somewhat off and narrowed. I get to doing one thing, dive in and next thing I know another week has passed.

I live in Pennsylvania but am from NYC so am very isolated here and since my accident cant walk well enough to get out except when I have to go to doctors but the pain has even pre-empted some office visits so I am basically a recluse.1 son lives with me but has health issues of his own that make it difficult for either of us to get much done but I try to keep enough going to survive and we do.God still provides for our needs and I trust Him, but do miss t he fellowship of a church and church friends as I have lived here for nearly 9 yrs now and have met no one.

I had weighed 375# in the late 90's but in early 2000's got down to about 325# and by 2004 was down to 250 or so before I got hit by a car and due to becoming sedentary gradually regained weight and was up to 321# by last March before starting to work on weight loss again.

I have 5 children and 20 grandchildren[1 is on the way!] 4 of my children were rainbow children as I have had 8 miscarriages throughout my life, now knowing it was due to my autoimmune issues with Lupus and Sarcoidosis.I am grateful for the children I do have but they all live cross country and I don't get out much anymore and they don't travel, so we facebook. I did take a farewell tour in late 2017 so I could at least meet all the grandkids and the trip took a few months as I flew and stayed with each one a while til Jan 2018 and have been home since then.

My husband and I were divorced before he died 10 yrs ago but we got along better online and by phone than we did in person. It was just one of those things - complicated but I miss him every day despite what happened.He was murdered by a woman he met online and married for security which he never got.She too is now dead as she developed cancer after getting away with killing him.
It haunts me though, as I divorced him to try and compel him to get help and instead he found a person who turned out to be a predator and he paid the ultimate price.
I feel guilty as he never would have left otherwise, but looking back, had he stayed, I might not be alive today. As I said, it was complicated however I always thought we'd be back together in the end, never suspecting he would die so soon. Sad he missed out on all our grandkids!

I research a lot online about nutrition, initially for natural pain relief [ no, not CBD or any of that pot stuff!] via vitamins minerals amino acids and other supplements like chicory root and acacia~ I needed to lower my cholesterol but Lipitor was a leg cramper and Neurotin was rotting my mind and most of the other prescriptions I had been on[16 a day] were all dealing with side effects of one another ! I now take only 3 prescriptions - for heart, muscle relaxer and an anti-inflammatory - the rest are now supplements I buy and control based on my blood panel. They haven't made me any worse and in a lot of ways have been making me better although losing weight is mandatory now as I need hip and back surgery and cant get either til after I reach 200#

I need a few other surgeries too, like 2 new knees but the hip and back are what bother me most and those will take a while.

I turned 65 in March and since then I have changed my diet menu and no longer drink soda or eat junk or pasta, breads, grains, rice, hi-carb veggies like potatoes corn carrots most beans~

I have gotten down to 261# a few weeks back but am currently at a stall after 5# came back on right after my last surgery[timing but had nothing to do with the surgery]
Turns out I haven't balanced fats with my diet as I ran out of olive oil, heavy cream and butter so even though I am doing everything else basically the same, the weight has been fluctuating between 261-263 for passed 2 weeks! GRRR Lost my momentum~!

I am now back to my original diet basics,[cauliflower, broccoli, eggs, dairy, beef and chicken] added in butter, cut carbs lower and will get olive or other good oil when I go shopping the beginning of the month as well as heavy cream for my coffee..Right now using powdered creamer but that messes up absorption and gut flora, as does most artificial sweeteners so weaning off those as well.

Bugs me how many commercial products say things like diet or carb friendly or keto friendly and so on but they don't actually help in losing weight with any sustainability! Most lie! Better to make things from scratch!

I take about 25-30 health supplements each day along with my lo cal/carb high protein diet but think maybe my fats were too low and carbs a bit too high ratio wise so that may have caused the current stall.

Today the scale says 261.6# so still almost a little higher than my fasting weight [261.4#]before last surgery.

My next short term goal is 250# but its taking longer than I thought it would. :)

Other information you wish to share: I'm 74, which has given me time to study what God thinks about health. I have the heart of a teacher, and I would love to share what I have learned. I would like to periodically make available some thoughts on various subjects in the realm of health, and I welcome inquiries on specific questions or circumstances. I can not give personal instructions but I can point out what has worked for others and what info God has made available to us. I have been astonished at how far-reaching is God's ideal for us concerning our health, and I believe in all fairness I have a responsibility to make it available to anyone that will sit still and listen (read).

Other information you wish to share: I was in the Air Force for 8 years, joined when I was 20, mainly to get away from the small town I lived in and my family, I saw it as my only way out. I met my husband in the Air Force in 2004 and we married in 2006. I have CPTSD (not military related), and several other mental health issues. I have had migraines since 2002, but last year I started having seizures and my migraines increased, to almost all the time. The first neurologist I went to just wanted to sell me Botox, and I did it 3 times, it stopped working after a month this last time, and the neurologist didn't pay any attention to my seizures. So, I'm getting a 2nd opinion. Can't get in till December, but I'm on the cancellation list.

Other information you wish to share My 22 y/o son lives with me in a one bedroom apartment. He just got a job for the first time in a year so some stress should be lifting. He has Bipolar 2, OCD, HIGH anxiety and I have Bipolar 1 with major depression and anxiety. When we butt heads it is intense and upsetting. But for now he needs assistance to get by and function. My dream is that he will get medicated and be stabilized so he can live on his own by being able to take care of all his responsibilities. I just tell you this because I might talk about us frequently and some may wonder why I just dont ask him to leave. Its very complicated when someone has mental difficulties that impair their quality of life and functioning.

looking for friends to connect with, get to know, and encourage each other along this journey. :-)
