Just trying to keep up!

MOM, artist, teacher, runner, triathlete, volunteer, so many things to do; without my health I can't do any of them.

In 2006 if somebody would have told me I would weigh 123 pounds again in this lifetime I would have been mad at them for being cruel. I was probably over 165. I don't think I would get on the scale at that point. I don't count my pregnancy weight, because well that wasn't all me. I didn't join Spark People until I was already down to 151.

Why bother to bring this all up? So many of the people I meet these days only think of me as thin. People often assume I have always been thin. I want people to know I was FAT and STRUGGLE with the dark episodes of depression and bi-polar disorder. Check out the photos of the "fat" me in my gallery. I have some awesome people in my life who help me to keep working to focus on the positive. Being active is critical for me.
CHOOSE to succeed and you will. Ask for help if you need it. Help comes in a thousand different ways. But you CAN do this!

I wish I could say losing weight has made everything better but it doesn't. I strive everyday to be healthier physically, emotionally, and spiritually, but the work and journey are never over.
