Personal Information:
I am a retired teacher who 4 years ago was referred to an endocrinologist. We have discovered that my high blood pressure, high cholesterol, inability to lose weight and significant hair loss on the top of my head are due to Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia. This means I have enlarged adrenal glands which release too much of a variety of hormones. I am insulin resistant. I am now on Metformin and we are working to find the right dosage. My hair is growing back and my blood pressure is down. I now have hope of losing this weight for the first time in 15 years. I would get down to around 205 and nothing would happen. The trainers I worked with over those years were stumped. But I have renewed hope and commitment.

Other Information:
I am married with a very supportive husband, 2 grown sons, the best daughter-in-law ever and 2 grandchildren - Luke, 2, and Josie, 1. I need energy and the ability and flexibility to keep up with them.

“The chief beauty about time is that you cannot waste it in advance.
The next year, the next day, the next hour are lying ready for you, as perfect, as unspoiled, as if you had never wasted or misapplied a single moment in all your life. You can turn over a new leaf every hour if you choose.”
-Arnold Bennett

Thank you for sticking up for me on the SPAT site where the lady asked if 5000-6000 steps a day was good? I suppose I answered her the way I did because she didn't look like she was very old, and with some people if you don't give them a push they will stay at the "start" line forever. lol
Anyway, emoticon to you, and have a good day! Eve
