Petal's New Path

Hiya! I'm Petal. In general, I like music (most all different sorts, especially if the beat isn't too slow), art, thinking, language, and laughing at lot. Also giggling. So show me funny things!

My health history:
I was diagnosed with osteoarthritis four years ago (5 in March, 2014). I have been obese nearly as long as I can remember- I remember hitting 225 at age 14 and have been within 20 pounds of that weight ever since then. I was briefly a size 18 in college and a 22 ...

My health history:
I was diagnosed with osteoarthritis four years ago (5 in March, 2014). I have been obese nearly as long as I can remember- I remember hitting 225 at age 14 and have been within 20 pounds of that weight ever since then. I was briefly a size 18 in college and a 22 right after I got married, but I usually rock a 20.

Why am I here?
Eventually I'll need surgery, and all the surgery risk factors (and recoup time) increase with weight. So that needs to be fixed. Also, I'd prefer to live forever, so I need to put good habits in place and stab the worst of my bad habits to death. Also I want to be super powerful and kick more butt than I currently do.

Hey there!

Welcome to the Partnership Accountability to the Finish Line team! We are happy to have you with our team. Please feel free to introduce yourself to the team, if you have not already done so. Be sure to read the thread: "Click Here: To help find a partner and learn what to do next". It will help you find someone who has similar goals, likes, dislikes, or someone close to your age if you prefer. You will both be able to support, encourage, and just be there for each other, while on your way in reaching your goals. 

If you need help finding someone or help of any kind, please let me know, as I am here to help you in anyway I can. Hope you enjoy and are able to achieve your goals on this team or any others you might join. 

Have a great day!!
