This was me when I was a schools driver. I wore a size 6 then. I gained a few pounds during nursing school, but after I graduated, I went to Weight Watchers and took the extra weight off. While I was actively looking for a job in the nursing field, I got extremely ill, and was put on massive doses of Prednisone. I blew up to 305 pounds. I have managed to lose about 35 pounds, but no matter how hard I try now, the weight just will not leave this old body of mine now, so since I'm in a motorized chair and am unable to exercise due to pulmonary disease that takes my breath away upon any type of exertion, I have decided to make the most of my life the best way I am able to. I keep smiling and keep a positive attitude.
