I've been fighting with my weight my entire life. I've been overweight, I've been underweight, I've been anorexic...I just want to be thin AND healthy. I want to be happy with my body.

My weight issues started when I was 3 years old. I was gaining weight so mom cut out the sweets. Growing up if there was candy, ice cream, or chips in the house, they were hidden from me...but I'd find them.

By 5th grade I was under 5 feet and over 150lbs. I also had a seziure disorder and was on medication for it that had the lovely side affect of basically shutting off my metabolism. I think it never recovered.

I have to fight to lose weight. Once off the medication it was easier...but it's still hard. If I don't religiously watch what I eat...I gain a pound overnight. It's terrible.

I'm never happy with how I look. I've gotten close but can never get all the way there. I love working out...but don't have a whole lot of time.

I'm a runner and love to do 5K's and half marathons. I hope to do my first full marathon this year as well as my first triathlon in April.

Food is my big issue. I need to be careful what I eat...and it's so hard. I feel like I can NEVER eat like a normal person.

I'm just trying to get this under control for once and for all. I'm so glad my friend, Determination21, led me to Spark. I've also brought along one of my best friends and someone I consider a sister, Chewymg18 so please make her feel welcome!!! She's my twin in so many ways.

I'm happy to be here and I hope I can reach my goals and would love to have all the help I can get. If anyone uses Instant Messager or Skype let me know and we can chat!!! The more support I have the better!!!

Also, feel free to check out my running blog at:
