Excuse me while I adjust my attitude to better suit your needs... LOL!

That title means a lot to me right now... but by tomorrow I won't remember why. Yet another head injury.

I just want to lose weight so my pain would let up. (update: this was a lie.. not the only reason). I cannot stand the pain any longer. I have RA, hypertension, major depressive disorder, and osteoarthritis in most of my joints. I am a mess mentally and physically and this may be the only way I can help with the physical (update: you've all helped me mentally as well). ...

I have already quit drinking (Oct 2011) and have recently quit smoking after 12.5 years (Apr 2012). I am applying for disability because I have so much pain all through the day. I cannot get the proper treatment because I have no insurance as I cannot work. I need to do something about my weight. It's the only other thing I can try to control for myself.

So the theme of GETN2IT (getting to it) is over, and I am on top of it. I am going to flush those fat cells out of my arse and get moving again. Even if I am in pain, I am tired of living like a hermit and dying a little bit inside each day.

Time to wake up and smell MYSELF! I'm the only one holding myself back from change!! So now I will give my fat cells an eviction notice and fight them off!

Personal Information:
Angela Ritter
38 years old
Jacksonville, FL

I am single and trying to enjoy it. I will not date if I cannot support myself, so getting my disability settlement has been a great buden lifted
from me and my parents who are now retired and living with me. They carried my expenses for 4 years, so now I do everything I can to pay them back every day.

I have osteoarthritis, degenerative joint and disc diseases, migraines, fractured neck, nerve, muscle and tissue damage, IBS, and lower back issues from when I broke my back about 19 years ago.

I fight depression on a daily basis and have been in a very ugly place for years. I hope this program will help me out of the abyss. (It has so far! 10 months and counting, but still struggling with large bouts of depression, but I feel like there MAY BE light at the end of the tunnel).

Other Information:
I am NEWLY on disability, an avid reader, and have led a sedentary lifestyle for the first 3 of the past 4 years. Since June 2012, I have been moving and shaking almost every day and am damn proud of that!

I have quit smoking, kinda quit gorging on food, and now am getting my weight under control. (Lost 50 pounds as of March 2013 & am working on the next 30!)

I am a hazard to myself most days, but am trying to keep moving through the pain. I am accident-prone. I can build a house and not break a nail, but make me shuffle paper and I can break an ARM! HAHA

And I love an emotionally unavailble man. Go figure. So the next man I date had better have it all together!

Thank you so much for taking the time to respond to my comment on your blog. I remember that day clearly as well. I had 2nd period journalism which meant 3 other fellow senior year slackers would sit in the newspaper office, sneak off campus and get bagel dogs for breakfast from the local deli and watch reruns of I Love Lucy. That day, everything was pre-empted for the shuttle launch so we decided to eat our dogs and actually watch and write a "blockbuster" of an article. Little did we know what would be happening minutes later. The blockbuster story unfolded before our eyes and none of us could say a word. I kept watching one reporter keep shoving a microphone at one of the family members and asking what was going through his mind at that moment. The poor man was looking up in the sky unable to process anything but the reporter would not leave him alone. I was crying and yelling at the television for the SOB to have some compassion and leave the man in peace. One of the other people in the room looked at me and said, "he is a journalist. He is doing his job. if he didn't ask the question, someone else will." That was it for me. I could not be that reporter. So, I changed my major from journalism to social psychology. Not that I was ever able to figure out why people have the need for this type of media - just know I don't need it!!!!

Darling friend of mine, you are so hilarious, to think that you'd have children to use your stomach as a trampoline! Ugh! If you want to feel more sick maybe, eh?! emoticon Let's just drink tons of water from now on and then this extra fluffiness should be floating away! emoticon

Hello dear! I hope you are doing ok! Let me hear from you to know that you are ok. We are getting ready for another snow front here. Then Saturday they are calling for what is known as a Nor Eastern? (Big blizzard) I was excited to see that I had lost an inch from my waist. But I have had some tunny troubles that may have helped it. I have a job ibterview Friday and am pretty excited about it. I feel good about it. I hope the rest of your week is a good one sweetie! always, MaDonna emoticon
