Winnie! Hi! I am back to doing Dietbet for the first time in 7 months. How are you doing? I see you have lost so much weight, congratulations! Hope to hear from you soon.

Hi Winnie. Thanks for the support. So good to hear from you and love your Kate. <3 Chris was 27 1/2 when he passed in 2016. It was a long life for him, considering most babies born with porencephaly pass before they're 2 years. He was a happy spirit, despite the hardships. Miss him terribly, but know he's at peace now. I wish I could talk to him, just call him up and he would answer. <3

  • Hi, again! I am feeling a lot better now, hard to believe that just a week ago I was in the hospital. I'm trying to take good care of myself now, so I won't end up back there. In fact, I have been feeling well enough to get back to my painting. So here is the latest, just finished it yesterday, a scene from my local public gardens.

Hey, Winnie, which transformer are you in? I'm in October Overload. I'm also in two kickstarters. The silver lining to my week of bad health is my weight is down. I guess I've been spending more time taking meds than eating!

Hey, there, Winnie! I hope you are doing really well. There has been a lot of drama in my life recently - I ended up in the hospital this past weekend with a bad infection and a bad flare-up of my asthma. My lungs were filled with mucus and I could hardly breathe. They brought out the big guns - IV steroids and antibiotics. After two days they sent me home, and I was still struggling, but it wasn't so scary. After a few days at home I realized that something still wasn't right, and I tied it to a tooth extraction I had a week ago Thursday. So I got an emergency appointment at the oral surgeons yesterday, Friday, and just as I suspected, there was still foreign matter under the gum where the tooth was taken out. The surgeon removed that, and it has been like a miracle cure - gum swelling and pain is all gone now. I am still struggling with my breathing, but I'm taking all my meds and getting by. My mood is a lot better now, too, now that I have gotten such relief in my mouth!

Hi, Winnie! How are you doing with your kickstarters? I have been really slacking off with my diet since the end of our transformer, and I'm up several pounds. So yesterday I joined two kickstarters and a transformer! I have been doing dietbets off and on for 4 years now, and I only lose weight when I am doing one. I feel so good to be back in the dietbet community again. I am hoping to eventually get down to 180 pounds, which is a weight I haven't seen in 16 years. Wish me luck!

Hi, Winnie! Hey, this has all been a very interesting six months, hasn't it? As much as we want to lose weight and get healthier, we still have to deal with real life. I hope you are doing well, and I am definitely meaning to stay in touch. A little while ago I sent you an email, did you receive it? If you don't see it, check your spam, it might have gone there. Anyway, I am getting ready for my art show - it's this coming weekend! Quite nervous and excited now. Also trying to find time to start a new painting. OK, hope you got that email, talk to you later!

  • Hi, Winnie, I see we are both still in for the final month - yay! It has been a wild journey. I'm glad I have done it, though. I wouldn't have lost any weight these last 5 months without doing Dietbet. I just need the motivation of others to keep me going. I'm going to keep going after this Transformer is over, and I hope one day to see my final goal weight. So far, though, with the weight I have lost I have captured back a lot of my past life I wasn't sure I would see again. So happy for that! Okay, one more painting, my landscape entry for the September 1 show. I am hoping for a prize in this show! If not, it will still have been a great experience.

Hello, so great to hear from you, Winnie! You have had a lot of issues to deal with during this Transformer, I am amazed you have gotten through it all. So glad there was a good outcome of the trial related to your daughter's death. And glad you are finally getting some relief in caring for your mom. It sounds like she is going to a good home. Yes, I have done well on this dietbet, I'm down 23 pounds from my beginning weight. A combination of dietbet, my noom app and getting more active have helped a ton. Hey, I would love to stay in touch after this transformer is over - my email is, and I am on Facebook as Tena Turner (I love sharing that famous name!) Let's stay in touch and keep supporting each other.
