Hi, my name is Michelle, I started SP on April after I quit my job did great for a couple of weeks and.... I am back now and that is what is important. I am not only very tired of being overweight, but I am tired of listening to myself complain. I am sure that everyone else is too. I want to do this, but I don't know how. I have read and read and read and planned and planned so now I want to ACT...ACT....ACT. I gained most of my weight (50 lbs) when I got sick and was on steriods for 2 years, I begged my doctor to take me off of them or I was going to kill myself, I couldn't even look at myself in the mirror. He did take me off, however, I was still taking pain pills, (methadone and oxycotin), I have stopped taking everything, and am dealing with the pain. I feel if I get healthy my disease will work itself out. I am looking forward to losing the 50lbs plus maybe 1- or 20 more.

Well, hello again!!! What a great time to start over. It is the end of the year, I have been inactive for 3 months and it is time for me to get back on track. I have not really gained or lost any weight since then, I stay right above or below the 160 mark. I felt really good for a while, and still do on most days. I know I have another 15 or so pounds to lose, which is nothing after the 30 I have taken off. I know I can do this!!!
