So, hi again. I come to you now as a member of a small group of people who have Mixed Connective Tissue Disease. This is a rare disease that combines Systemic Lupus, Systemic Scleroderma, Polymyositis, and Rheumatoid Arthritis.

I'm in pain on a daily basis and am constantly exhausted, no matter how much sleep I get. This makes it very difficult to be active, but I'm going to push through the pain and help myself be healthy and alive as long as I can.

At my highest weight, I was over 275 lbs... I was 17 years old. At my lowest weight I was 215 lbs. I stand here now at 245 lbs (2 and a half cheerleaders) and I need to be less... people. LOL.

This, now, for me, is not about temptation or "oh, but I wanted it". This is now about how long I want to live and how much pain I'm willing to live with.

It's be healthy or not live to see my grandchildren. And that is an ultimatum I can work with.

I stand here now at 223 lbs :) Getting it done! I found my motivating quote:

"Tired of starting over? STOP GIVING UP."

JANUARY 2013
So I'm smaller now than I've been since middle school. I'm here at 205 lbs, a weight I last logged in 7th grade. Though I must admit it looks and feels much better on me as an adult. I've lost 70 lbs total, and while I still have about 55 lbs left to go, I'm feeling SO good and so motivated to keep going. I really and realistically think 2013 is going to be the year I hit my goal and get healthy and strong. I've started training to join a roller derby team and I'm strength training 3x a week. I so hope to motivate others and be a positive example. NEVER STARTING OVER AGAIN!
