I have struggled with my weight my entire life, I have always been active, but since I never watched what I ate I never really lost weight. In 2011 I embarked on a 1 year challenge to take the weight off and keep it off... I became a runner and a crossfitter and an athlete! I did great, the pounds fell off, but I also ended up with knee surgery and also became disabled for a non-physical issue the same year and lost 6 months of training and gained a lot of weight back. When I moved and found I was not welcome in my new town, the weight just piled back on and my motivation dropped, but I am finally back on my game and going strong.

    Hi -- I saw your post on the Paleo team and was inspired, so I dropped by your page and found out that you're in Seattle! I'm in Redmond, and always happy to meet a Sparker in the area. I'd love to learn more about CrossFit, and your experience with it.
