I never had a weight problem until I hit my mid 20s. During high school and college I could eat absolutely anything I wanted and often struggled to maintain a healthy weight. I was also extremely active during this time - playing volleyball, basketball, and running. I continued running into my 20s and played volleyball as often as possible. But I suffered several ankle sprains and at 25 broke my left ankle in 3 places. Those injuries combined with a very unhealthy, abusive relationship led to stress eating and weight gain creeped up without my even realizing it.
In my late 20s & early 30s, I continued to gain weight. Then I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and my doctors tried medication after medication - some of which have unfortunately packed on the pounds (one medication caused me to gain 50 lbs in 6 weeks).
I have tried so many diets and lost (and regained) so much weight over the past several years and I am ready to just lose the weight for good and be healthy. I've considered gastric surgery, but don't want to take that drastic of a step if I can help it.
I have recently lost 25 lbs and want to keep the momentum going, so I've joined SparkPeople and am hoping with the motivation and help I find here, I can finally succeed!!

    Hi Cheryl! I apologize for not getting here sooner to return your comments on my page. I was the wedding planner for our youngest daughter who got married July 9 and I had to let some things go by the wayside. I'm still playing catch-up. I think it's a never ending job :)

    How are you coming along on your fitness journey? And have you found your way around the site?

    I've gotten ahold of this book "Your Body's Many Cries for Water" by F. Batmanghelidgj, M.D. that you might want to look into. Since learning the info, I have been drinking a lot more water than I was (I didn't want to drink it cos it makes ya go to the bathroom a lot more!). The sub caption on the book is: You're not sick; you're thirsty. Don't treat thirst with medication.

    Just a thought. Have a good day :)
