I remember when my mom considered me skinny. That was before I was 13.. After that, she and I thought I was fat at 160, but really I was just a little overweight and built like a rugby player. I never went above 168 though highschool. Then I graduated, and my bipolar disorder reared it's ugly head. I struggled to stay under 180...190...200...210. I got back down to 190 for my wedding. And then I went on Yaz (the birthcontrol) and Symbyax (for BPD). And I swore that 220 was as heavy as I was going to get...okay, more than 240...I was really scared at 250...I topped out at 256.

Edit: Alright, I'm not going to delete what I have above because it's my history, and I need to remember that struggle. But I'm a 27 year old strong woman who topped out at 300 pounds. I had to fight the healthcare system to be seen as a person and not a number on the scale. I had a lot of underlying health conditions that needed to be sorted out, and I did that. I've been here a few years, and I'm not afraid to keep going, even though I weigh more now than ever before. I am strong. 10/25/2014

My Goals:
I would like to lose a pound a week. I want to weigh 150, and be able to run 5 miles an hour for an hour. Then I would like to run a marathon. Then I want to bike a tour. Then I'll learn to swim and do a triatholon.

My Program:
I started logging all my nutrition information and not only signed my husband and myself up at a gym, but also my friends! I gave up all soda and carbonation Jan 1. I gave up all meat except fish Feb. 10, and aim for 8 servings of fruits and veggies a day. I eat "healthy" fat as part of my diet, like olive oil and nuts. I try to drink 80 oz water a day and 3 servings dairy. I aim for 30 grams fiber a day. And I'm trying to incorporate daily exercise! I feel like a younger, healthier, happier me!

Personal Information:
You can call me Marle. I'm from southern Arizona, but I'm living in western NC. I am a college student at a communtiy collge. I don't know my goals for six months from now because we should be moving, either closer to the college or back to AZ. I've been married for 2 years, as of November. I'm 23. I despretly want to have a baby, but I don't like what my weight and my prediabetes will do to the pregnancy.

Other Information:
VISION (Victory Is Seen In One Name) was the name of my youth group when I converted from Wicca to Christianity at the age of 16. It change my life and brought balance to my turmoil-wrought mind. I have a lot of trouble with forgiveness for those who hurt me when I was growing up, including classmates and my family. I'm growing peaceful with some of them.

    Thank you everybody for your kind wishes! Life begins, life begins, life begins....

    Life begins when you decided to start living it. I'm going into this race, and I've never given up, not during try outs, not during auditions, not when I'm halfway through a walk. I'm going to keep racing until I'm forced off the life track. Right now, I'm going to try a new, healthy life style. There's my preview for the next year!!!
