One of my first 5k's in 2010. I had to stop walking for two years due to leg and back pain. After being out for 4 weeks going thru physical therapy I've started walking again. I hope that I can build my endurance and soon walk another 5k.

I envision myself as a skinny me. I envision myself as the old skinny me. I was not obese as a child nor as a young adult. I did not gain weight until I became pregnant at the age of 28. During my eigth month of pregnancy I was in a terrible car accident and put on bed rest until I had my daughter. I truly believe I felt lonely and depressed. The day I had her I gave birth to an 11.2 pound baby. I was in shock because my doctor never told me that I gained too much weight or that my baby had become that big. When I would ask my doctor how I was doing in weight I was always told, "You're tall don't worry about it. We will let you know if you're gaining too much", clearly they didn't. I always thought that I would be a skinny healthy mom and it never happened. I never lost the weight. Instead of doing something about it I just never felt like I had the energy. Eight years later and only now am I asking for help. For crying out loud I was a model and a college athlete. I can do this and it's for me. With the help of my friends, my husband and my family I will beat this thing we call becoming over weight. Life is a crazy journey but I'm full speed ahead. There's no looking back. Now is my time. We live in a great country that allows us to explore and follow our dreams. That's what I'm doing and I do not plan on looking back.

    Thank you for the comment you made on my blog. I wish you luck with your weight loss quest. We can do it! My weight is like a ball and chain. I need to remove excess pounds iu earnest. I have gone through a lot of phases in my recovery from compulsive overeating. I have had a lot of help myself. Lately, though, I have the most support I have ever had. I can talk to several friends and family about my eating problems and try to work it through. I have a nutrition counselor at an eating disorder clinic. I have had other ones but she is the best. My first counselor was great, too. She helped me over a lot of humps in early recovery. She is now working at a school. Hope you find the direction you need here on Spark and in other places.
    Take care, Karen emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
