Hello, strangers of the Internet!
I'm Ashley, 24 years old, and from Southern Missouri.
I'm not married, but I might as well be. Matt and I have been together 7 years, and living together for about 5 years.

I have Chronic Migraine. I had episodic migraines starting at age 9, and they became more frequent, then turning chronic about 2 years ago. I do not have control of them yet, so my weight loss may be super slow this time around. That is okay though! On the days that I can push myself I will go for gold, and if I can't get through a workout because of them then I won't beat myself up. I know I have what it takes, I just have to work on the headaches first! I just received my first round of Botox on 8/26, so I am hoping things will start looking up.

I've been on Spark people before, and have had great success. I used to go to the gym 5 days a week, and lost 60 pounds. That ended when I suffered a knee injury that resulted in surgery. I gained 90+ pounds, and so here I am.

I'm starting fresh, and I am going to get through this.

Wow! I'm so sorry to read that! Boy, you've been through the ringer! As you know, I too have recently been through the ringer. I'm just getting over an Achillies tear. The unique situation is I was on the operating table and the doctor was going to perform surgery on me until I told him to reevaluate my situation and load and behold they did not operate; it somehow miraculously healed itself. The doctors doesn't have a medical explanation of why it healed itself. I believe it was spiritual, I was praying my butt off in the operating room prior to getting operated on and load and behold it was healed! Come on Ash, we can do this; let's put our minds together, have the right attitude in the right place --- no quitting and knock this out of the ballpark --- talk to you later bye! 💪😬

Ashley,
OMG! This is so crazy! Man it's been awhile! Well as you know, I went rouge and gained all of my weight back. Remember, when I was down in the onederland. I really don't know what happen? One day I woke up, I didn't log into Sparks, and it went sprilling down hill from there. Last April, I tore my Achillies tendon. While I was getting attention to my injury, the doctor and I was taking about my weight. He was explaining if I didn't get a handle on it soon it would get harder for me to manage it as life goes on, and right there was the wake up call for me to do something. So I did something drastic! In May, the wife and I did a HCG diet (if you want more info I'll Sparkmail you). It was rough at first but it got me down 41 lbs and the wife 19lbs. in 8 weeks. Now I'm just managing it (eating within my calories and exercising). I still have those days where I go outside the boundaries but they're few. In fact, just a few days ago I was at the lowest I have ever been since 1999 (I weighed in at 186). Since then, I did manage to gain some of it back but that is okay I'll be back there soon. Anyway, it really nice to see you here and this time let's accomplish this tasking together. Funny--- we've been friends for a couple plus years and we've never met (lol).
