Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
hi! i'm a 35 yo female living in the gorgeous california foothills. i have a wonderful boyfriend, great family, fantastic friends, wonderful stepkids and fun pets whom i love. i have been a "big girl" all of my life, and while i accept being plus sized, i do not like my current weight and body shape. i would like to get back to being a size 14-16 which for me is about 185 pounds; for me this is when i think i look and feel my best. i do have endocrine problems, and a condition called metabolic syndrome that makes it very difficult for me to lose weight.
My goals for the rest of 2009 are not just about fitness and weight loss... although those are two main ones... i also want to get back ontrack with my education, try to use more organic foods, be a better budgeter with money.
I work out nearly every day for 30 minutes a day on my new WII FIT! I love it!! The games are so fun, and the yoga and strength training really kick your butt! I have unlocked some advanced exercises and reps now and I have lost two pounds in a week since starting eleven days ago.
I'm a born and bred california girl, originally from the bay area. My father is Cherokee and we belong to the Lakota Sioux nation as well, and my mother immigrated to the US from Japan when she was a child. I am quite the mix!
I work graveyard shifts and need quick, easy and healthy meals to prepare. I get tired of eating the same thing over and over... Browsing around I found some delicious recipes that had come from this website so I thought I would join! Its also nice to have a food journal to make me more concious of portions.

I'm so very pleased you finally have some answers or close to it. Though I'm not happy about diagnose as I would not wish this on anyone. I'm glad you know. At least your not crazy, or think your going crazy!
You ask me what helps me...a good soak in a hot tub, or a deep bath tub. It sooths the muscles and relaxes me. Now because I can not bend my knees completely, I take hot showers and stand under the water, not quite the same as a soak, but oh well.
Keep in touch and let me know how you are doing. Just remember cut the stress out of your life, get plenty of rest, and eat well.

May You Always Have These Endless Gifts.
A star to light your way when you can't see what's ahead.
Strong winds beneath your dreams,
lifting you up and carrying you on.
Prayers, strong and deep, untying your cares
when the threads get tangled.
Hope in tough situations.
A harvest of moments, memories, and good times.
Sunshine amongst the clouds
and smiles that turn anguish to joy.
Silence when words aren't needed.
All that it takes to watch
your cares drift away.
Tomorrows as vast as the universe -
opportunities far beyond
what your heart believes.
Love, lasting and giving,
and a happy heart - every day, all year.
Happy New Year
