Hello all.
My name is Karenlee and I am brand new at this internet stuff. I've never talked to anyone outside of email. I saw this site advertised on tv and decided to check it out

This site was just what I needed at this point in my life. God always seems to be right there with what I need when I need it.
Well to outline my story; I am 67 weigh around 160 and am in the advanced stages of COPD (chronic obstructed pulmanary desease). I'm on oxygen 24/7, I have only a 17% lung capasity and nearly died in april. After 3 mos in the hospital on a respitory machine and a month in rehab I am back home. I know my lungs won't repair but I can strengthen everything else. My options, the way I see it, is do nothing and die soon or I can do everything possible and stay around to find out what God kept me around to do. I of course chose the latter. Weight loss isn't my main goal. Getting physically as strong and healthy as I can to help me breathe easier, if it is possible, is my biggest concern. Dropping 10 or 15 lbs will be a nice bonus. I'm looking forward to being inspired and hope I can inspire in return.

    I just noticed that you joined COPD and have a disabled son, I have COPD too, not as bad as you but bad enough. I also have a son with mild CP, severe MR and autism. He is 46 and living with us right now, waiting for an opening that will be right for him. We also care for our 45 year old daughter with MS that has caused dementia and mobility issues. So I understand wanting to stay well for them. It can be hrd - usually is, actually. Welcome to the group, you will find a lot of help here! emoticon
