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 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!

Wow Dawn..that's an amazing journey. My heart goes out to you. You have been so strong through all the trials. You just need friends to support you. It's a difficult road for us all re: weight issues but I feel like we can all get through it together. I've had embarrassing episodes with having falls here and being almost 300 lbs at some times had to have 4 or 5 firefighters here to get me on my feet and into bed. My hubby Dave felt pretty helpless. It was horrifying to say the least. My last fall I had lost 40 lbs and been working on climbing stairs so it took 2 firefighters and I was up on my feet in 10 seconds. So they say the worst things we fear have already happened to us. Good luck my friend!
