An introduction

Wednesday, July 09, 2008

Hello all,
My Name is Tia and I hate writing introductions :)
I am 30yrs old, 5'4", female, Engaged, & have 6 children (all fur babies)I am a full time secretary /insurance agent for a small office, I am also attending online classes for the Art institute of Pittsburgh where I will achieve an Associates in Interactive Media & web design

I was directed to spark people by an intern at my Doctors office.

I have been overweight for most of my life, it wasn't so bad in high school I actually got down to a 14 for Prom & Graduation. A Year after graduating I was in a car wreck & Crushed 2 vertebra. The doctors stabilized the area with rods & Screws so Luckily I am still walking. After surgery I was told I could not run, not to lift over 10 lbs, don't get pregnant & don't gain any weight....yeah right. With a succession of desk jobs & my own hobbies of Tatting & sewing I am not that active, so the pounds have crept on. I Am now 95 lbs heaver than when I graduated and according to my Dr. 115 lbs over my Ideal weight.

So here I am at 255, My Goal weight is 150. I know most of the problem is that I don't get enough exercise. I just cant seem to stay focused on it, I get bored or I can always find something else to do.

I wrote this approximately 3 months ago. Today I had a follow up visit, I gained 5 lbs, & was diagnosed with PCOS Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome.
So now losing weight is even More imperative.

    Hang in there you could always help when you need it. A doctor told me I not to run any more either or I my injure my hip and may not walk again . I tried every hard not to run for a month are so until my niece run out to a busy street and I had no choose to run after her to keep here safe. I was so winded after I stopped her I made sure I would get winded again for doing so. I have a simple word of advice to give to you. Take your hobbies with you and one of your baby and go for a walk (working your way up to a run) in the park and when you fell tired seat down on a bench and work on your latest project until you get your energy back. I only suggest this is only because it was not easy to catch her and I barely reached her just in time if I was even a second later God I don't want to think about what could have happen to her. Best of luck I hope you reach your.
