Until the age of 30 I never had trouble with my weight - always between size 3 & 5. After that a combination of depression and fibromyalgia took it's toll - I went from 115 to 230 lbs. 3 years ago after my divorce I managed to lose almost 70 lbs and hold steady at 160, good but not great. In the last year I started gaining that back and now weigh in at 185 again. I've noticed a huge difference in my health too, after losing the weight the fibro and migraines were easier to manage. Gaining it back I've had a daily struggle with both. I just need motivation - I do better with friends supporting each other, working out together...since I really don't know many people in my area yet (recently moved to New Hyde Park, NY) I'm hoping that SparkPeople will help fill in that void. Would be great to meet someone who is in this area too. Anyhow - on top of just needing to get healthy I am getting married in January 2015, another motivator now. Hoping to stick with it all this time!
Anyone reading this please feel free to friend me :) Looking forward to meeting new people and getting in shape!
YES WE CAN!!!!
