Here we go! I'll take all the support I can get! Will update this section soon, as I have soo much to say, but not sure how to put it into words. Please feel free to send me messages with any questions, or even just to vent. :)
My main goal is to take my life back. I went to the doctor today, after going 2 weeks ago for a check-up. Two weeks ago, I ended up shedding MANY MANY tears because the number on the scale was higher than it has EVER been before, 330. But today, when I went back again, it was 322.5. I have decided that I will NEVER gain those 7lbs back! My goal is to take each day at a time, make good choices. YES, I want to lose weight and YES, I want to feel "sexy." However, the most important thing is to be HEALTHY. So here we go!
As of two weeks ago, I have been drinking 3 bottles of water while at work per day(usually with Crystal Light). Instead of ice cream or other sweet treats, I am eating a fruit (kiwi being my choice lately). Small changes for now. And because in Indianapolis, IN, there is no such thing as winter and it is 65 degrees out today and sunny, my boyfriend and I are finding new parks that have walking trails to spend our evenings exploring.
I am from Indianapolis, IN. I am studying medical assisting and I currently work as a Teller at a local Credit Union. I would love to hear from anyone who, like me, is struggling. I am hoping to find a sense of community with people on SP, and maybe find some people who I can share my struggles, successes and just plain "bitch" to when I need to haha.
| current weight: 322.5
We're very close in weight. I hope you'll check out my story on my page and/or blogs and add me as a friend. Let's inspire one another!!!

Welcome! If you need a shoulder, a friend or a virtual coffee at some point, drop by and say hello! I've been on SP for just shy of six months now and am amazed at the absolutely incredible amount of support I've received. This is a fabulous site and you will be astounded at what you get out of it if you give it your all. From recent experiences I can absolutely say that there is no mountain too high to get over, no hole too deep to get out of. And cliches aside, you are truly capable of anything!
