I will take one step at a time on this journey to a healthier me....

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.

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!!

Hey Hon!

Thanks for stopping by my page and leaving me a bit of support. I have to say that our stories are very, very similar. I have kids running all around me at the moment but I'll get back with you and share a bit more about myself.

Until then, keep in touch!

Hugs-Kat

Thanks so much for stopping by my page and the congrats on being Motivator of the Day. Unfortunately, I was in Seattle at the time with no internet access so I didn't realize I was given the honor until I got home.

I really appreciate the kind words!
