Slowly finding the healthier person inside

After a history of abusive and codependent relationships (the last one ended the day after the first picture in my gallery was taken), I am starting on the path of becoming a healthier person. I gained about 70 lbs during my last relationship of 9 years, though I did start it out a bit underweight for my height and frame size. (I was 145 lbs at 5'8" then).

After a history of abusive and codependent relationships (the last one ended the day after the first picture in my gallery was taken), I am starting on the path of becoming a healthier person.

I joined Sparkpeople on May 12, 2011. I lost about 25 lbs prior to joining Sparkpeople, and another 26 since starting. I still have about 6 more to go. This is going a long way toward raising my self-esteem and minimizing my self-doubts. I do know I am losing weight faster than most people, but this is due to medication I am on (knew there had to be an upside to having ADHD!!!).

I am slowly reinventing myself and finding the thinner, happier, healthier person that is inside me. I have been on the Sparkpeople website for 4 1/2 months now, and between Sparkpeople and my angels, I am finding the strength to keep moving foward and getting healthier...physically, mentally, and emotionally.

SparkPoints: 10,796

Fitness Minutes: 1,897

My Goals:
Lose 3 more pounds by 9/30/2011.

Become a healthier person physically, mentally, and emotionally!

My Program:
I am trying to lose the remaining 6 lbs that will put me back at the healthy weight my doctor recommended to me. I have been tracking foods for a few months, though exercise is still a struggle with my work schedule and weak ankle/knee and a congenital low back problem. I have now progressed to Stage 3 of the program, however, and am continuing to lose the weight and learning to make and stick to healthier food choices.

Personal Information:
My name is Dianne. I currently live in Jackson Township, Ohio (near Canton), and work in Akron, though I am hoping to move into Akron (or at least closer to work) when my lease is up in December.
