I have MD and Fibromyalgia. I am fighting for myself for the first time!

I have MD and Fibromyalgia. I am fighting for myself for the first time!
I have weighed in the 240ís for 12 years. Before that I was about 110. (yikes)

I know I gained my weight purposely for three reasons.
#1- I was pregnant with my last son and lost 68lbs. the docs were scared and I got a prescription for a banana split per day ( I know great hey) I gained that 68 back pretty fast.
#2- I was assaulted 2 times by stranger and once by a family member, I hate my body and my fear of it happening again. To be the opposite from skinny seemed safer.

#3- the worst yet. I was a skinny young thing and my new hubby, who "thought" he wanted a trophy wife was extremely paranoid, he believed that men were watching me and that I would cheat on him. The abuse I suffered daily from his accusations and paranoia was more than I could bear. One day he told me I was to skinny and need to gain weight, the more I gained the happier he was, until finally he stated that I was safe, no one would want me and he left me alone.


Because I have MD I know that I will need help with care at some point and who can help a big woman transfer? I want to keep my mobility for as long as I can, this program will help that.

So this is me, breaking out of denial, hopefully seeing myself as I really am.

Dawn, you are such a strong and amazing woman. You have gone through a lot. I admire your goals too. I live in Indianapolis so not too far from Madison. I have MS and other "stuff."
Good luck with your goals!
