My call to action for losing extraneous weight was two-fold.  Last April 2018 when receiving two interior design project awards - my injured left knee (now progressed into osteoporosis) and extra weight prohibited me from climbing the steps up to stage.  I was horrified and embarrassed unable to accept my awards in a normal fashion.  That said, the presenters + photographer were kind and gracious enough to present the awards to me at floor level.  It is my sincere hope and goal should I win any future design award in 2020 (a biennial event) - I will be able to safely come up on stage with confidence and ease.  And, by taking off the extra load on my left knee may postpone knee replacement surgery.
