Starting all over again!!!My name is Lily, I've been struggling with my weight for a couple of years now. I gained weight the minute I entered peri-menopause. Then I gained an additional 20 pounds when I quit smoking. I am struggling to get out of this depression and funk. People that have not seem me in a while will make hurtful comments about my weight and how I look. Recently had blood work done and was told I have a thyroid issue as well as Insulin Resistance. I refuse to take medication. I will gain control of my life and body.

I am so inspired by all the transformations on Spark people. I've been told that I have to spend a fortune on plastic surgery to have a body like a fitness model. I thought the same thing until I came across some inspirational stories. I feel in my heart that I can do this. I just need to be guided in the right direction. I will continue to read and find what works for me, and hopefully one day soon I can be proud enough to post a picture of myself.

    Hi and thanks for your comments about my health scare today. Have you been able to successfully manage your low blood pressure? I thought I had everything under control until today's episode, so I'm wondering if there's more I should be doing. I want to have a list of suggestions prepared for my follow-up visit with my doctor, so any advice you can give me would be great!

    Hi and thanks for the friend add! I would also love to have the body of a fitness model and now that I've been at goal for a few months I can really focus more on getting in great shape rather than just losing weight. I know I could do better if I dedicated myself to a program 99% of the time but with my history of ups and downs, I think slow and steady progress and a more moderate program will always need to be my mantra. Good luck reaching your goals and feel free to stop by my page any time!
