I am person who is very happy with life but unhappy with losing the ability to move around better as I age. I have a supportive family who has helped me while my doctor and I have discovered the roadblocks and how I can now overcome them. Looking forward to achieving my goals.

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.
