I am a Neo-Pagan Eclectic Wiccan Solitary Crone, which means I am a modern day Pagan or Witch. No, not a Halloween witch although that is my favorite holiday.
I am also a mother and grandmother who has always been "big boned". In the 1980's I had my stomach stapled while undergoing another surgery. Ice cream became my favorite food. My weight loss became a weight gain in a couple of years.
About 3 years ago I quit smoking and substituted food for cigarettes, chocolates to be precise which added another 50+ pounds. I have asthma, arthritis, hypothyroidism, migraines, high blood pressure bone spurs and periodic vertigo. Now my body hurts all the time and I need to do something about my health and weight if I wish to be here for the next 60 years.
