Ready, Slow & Steady!

I'm a 36-year-old who's struggled with weight since I was about 10. I was diagnosed with probable Multiple Sclerosis in February 2011. I'm losing weight to help alleviate symptoms and to be a more active member of my family and community. I trust God to carry me through the rough patches. My highest weight ever was June 2, 2005 (the day I delivered my youngest child) - About 335 lbs. My height is 5'8".

I'll be documenting my weigh-ins here on my SparkPage. This time it's for LIFE! ...

Ok, I'm glad it helped you! I am struggling a little myself right now. I haven't been sparking as much as I'd like. I should have enough money to buy my laptop in a few weeks I think.
