I love people, animals and intelligent conversation!

I have been fat all my life and have been extremely blessed. I don't have a problem in my head with being fat. My belief is that you can be fat and fit. However, the reality that I live is that one pays a price after a certain age because the excess weight takes it's toll on the human body.

So, here I am, 44 with knee issues. I am extremely obese but I don't hate myself or my body. I do hate the limitations I am facing now because my knees are shot and I have lymphedema in my left leg. (Lymphedema is a swelling of sorts. If you wish to know more, please feel free to message me and I would be happy to discuss it with you.)

In January of 2008 I made a New Year's resolution to make a change because I needed to regain my mobility. I lost 100 pounds on my own prior to my Lap Band Surgery on December 16, 2008. It was the jump start I needed to get my life back on track. It's still a struggle everyday because old habits die hard.

I actually found Spark through MyPoints and was so pleased to be introduced to such a multi-faceted, supportive community. Since my surgery I have lost an additional 75 pounds, and hope to continue to lose so that I can have knee surgery and get back out into the world.

All supportive friends are welcomed!
