    I can only reiterate what everyone else has said, you look amazing. Well done indeed and so many good wishes on the forthcoming nuptials! :)

    I also wanted to ask if anyone has found a support group on here for people with very limited mobility, not to mention advancing years, although I am not Methuselah!

    I have lost over 30 with diet alone in just over 3 months, not too shabby but then I had been bed bound for a year and had 100 plus pounds to lose! I have a Garmin to encourage me to try and make 1500 steps or more if I can in a day. Some days I only get to 500 but that's more than zero and in my book that works for me. I also have a swimming pool I can get into whenever I can walk out to it, but sadly I tore my right rotor cuff last autumn and my left one around Christmas, so it isn't just the walk out there right now, but I have managed a few minutes here and there holding a ball so I didn't have to hurt my shoulders too much.

    I'm not whining about my lot in life, actually I am extraordinarily happy. I have a wonderful man who loves me every bit as much as I love him and we met just over two years ago when we both had been married a few, had our children and given up on ever having what everyone else seemed to have, thought it was a myth even ..... true happiness and true love.

    Frankly, I am just trying to find a group that has other members who need the same hurrahs.

    You all are awesome! So many people that aren't disabled make excuses, and then you all come along and blow all excuses away. You all look amazing!
