Nice to meet everyone.

I have seen your posts on the Bipolar Mania thread and you have really inspired me to want to get more fit. Your positive, upbeat attitude is really great. Even though I don't take Topomax, I do have a motivation deficit right now. Your posts and blog have lifted me up and given me renewed energy. I am "friending" you since you have given me hope. Thank you for sharing your journey. Take care and God bless, Deb emoticon

I am looking for a buddy to help me get off this merry go round of losing and gaining; self sabotaging and beating myself up. If you would like to join me, please let me know.
