Thank you for all the support

Remember in "It's a Wonderful Life" when Clarence says "Remember, George: no man is a failure who has friends".
Well, just in case I didn't know it before I know it now. I have friends and so I can't be a failure, in anything I do!
I have had well over 20 private e-mails and 47 messages left on my previous post, not to mention phone calls and hugs I have received. I wasn't sure what would happen when I put my life into a blog post. I am glad I did.
I have been doing the WW points thing for a week now. It is going well. My husband has been my rock. He is doing this with me and is so supportive of me in each step.
My highlight of my week was that I found a place to weigh at. When I went to my doctor's office they didn't weigh me. I just guessed at my weight when I went in. I joined WW online and so I don't go into an actual meeting. The online e-mail support couldn't give me any info whether I could weigh at my local WW office or not. My doctor's office is about 20 minutes away and not open the hours I am off.
So Friday I just popped into the local WW office and talked to the leader and explained my situation. She said I could come there and weigh in. Whew! Who would have thought that I would be ecstatic over being able to weigh!
Bad news is I am about 2 pounds heavier than I thought. Good news is that by next week I will have that taken care of!
The bike (my friend) is getting much easier! I still can't go long on it, but I am improving.
Let me tell you all thank you from the bottom of my heart. You all are my angels here on earth. Thank you for coming along with me on this journey!

You know you are on the right tract when you go out of your way to find a scale! Good for you! My DH & I went for a long walk on the beach yesterday (in the rain) for some exercise. I thought of you while we were walking and prayed for your journey. Glad to hear your DH is right along with you.

You go girl - you can do it! I am trying to lose about 20 pounds but not being too successful. I am taking prednisone for my fibromyalgia and that does not help the weight!
