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 ...

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!

Thanks for your advice on my blog about the cupcakes. I will certainly indulge myself in one tomorrow than. Mmm! I agree, giving in somewhat to a craving is good, or else you try to eat more food to squash it and end up eating that and the craving!

No, my husband won't stop eating what he is. I am just happy he is good about buying healthier food and even by example he is eating some of it too. I think a secret hiding place is the best option. I tried to tell myself it was poisonous and to not eat it haha.
