I'm ready

Hi everyone. My name is catherine. I'm 41 years old and live in canada. I've fought my weight since I was about 16 years old. I used to be athletic and into sports big time. However, my dad got sick and we lost him when he was only 49 years old. I had a huge downward spiral and started gaining lots of weight once I quit all the things I loved. My number one fan was no longer there to cheer me on and I decided I'd had enough of sports. At my highest weight I weighed 270lbs. I battled that and ...
Hi everyone. My name is catherine. I'm 41 years old and live in canada. I've fought my weight since I was about 16 years old. I used to be athletic and into sports big time. However, my dad got sick and we lost him when he was only 49 years old. I had a huge downward spiral and started gaining lots of weight once I quit all the things I loved. My number one fan was no longer there to cheer me on and I decided I'd had enough of sports. At my highest weight I weighed 270lbs. I battled that and got down to 187lbs. I felt great at 187. I met my husband at 187. He is a wonderfully supportive man who loves me for me. Things changed a few years into our relationship. I got diagnosed with End stage renal failure and had to do dialysis for a few years. It was a terrible time in my life, but my husband never left my side. I was fortunate to receive the life saving gift of kidney transplant 2 and 1/2 years ago. With all the anti rejection drugs and my lack of motivation to do anything about my weight, I've ballooned to 238lb. I started surfing the web, to find a place that I could track my calories. That's when I found Sparkpeople and I decided it was time. Time to become the person I've always wanted to be, time to take the time for me and most importantly, time to honour my cousins life saving gift of kidney donation! My goal is 184lbs. I can and will do this!!
