Working Hard

With numerous medical illnesses I have finally decided that I need to change my life. Losing weight will not make my medical problems go away, because my weight is not what caused the problems, but I do need to take better care of myself and I know it takes time, and I am willing to put in all the time I need to.

My Goals:
I am looking to lose at least 40 lbs. Being sick my doctors have told me that losing the weight will help me. Due to one of my illnesses I will need to have a liver transplant in the future, and the less I weigh the smoother the surgery will go, so I want to be as healthy weight wise as soon as possible, because I do not know when I will need the transplant.

My Program:
My program consists of going to the gym monday thru friday doing cardio and some strength training. Saturday and sundays I will be walking thru the neighborhoods. I will also be getting my family to start eating healthier.

Personal Information:
Hi everyone my name is Sarah, I'm from Royal Oak Michigan. I was actually doing very well with my weight loss program last year, I was down to 130 lbs, and all I needed was 5 more pouds to lose to reach my goal weight then something terrible happened. My younger sister passed away. So I turned to food to comfort me in my time of need and I gained ALL the weight back this past year. I know my sister would not want me to be like this and that she was so proud of me last year when I was lossing the weight so I am getting serious again and going to lose the weight once more.

Other Information:
lets see I have been sick the past 10 years. On and off prednisone for almost five years. I had Ulcerative Colitis, the medications did not work for me so I ended up having surgery where the doctors removed my colon. I now have Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis, anemia, and a problem with my cortisone levels. I also have many other medical issues, which I am willing to discuss more privately.
