Hi,

I may have posted the wrong area... I had no idea what a "sticky topic" was... now I think I get it. If I post here... my "new member intro" will stick around and I can subscribe. Ok emoticon

I'm doing the copy paste of my other post... lol. Does that make me lazy?? emoticon

Hi,

My name is Robin (that felt like a 12-step-program moment,lol), I heard about this on another site I was visiting and it sounded like something I wanted to participate in. I'm just getting started so bear with me as I learn the ropes, lol. In the interest of not typing for the next three hours, I'll just add the intro I posted on my page to get started. I'll be downloading the apps for my iPad so I can take SparkPeople with me for easier access to you all's posts etc. Right now, I'm currently working overtime and have little me time, but I do have a goal of being here at least once each day to participate. :-)

I've struggled with my weight since having my son 20 years ago. Not because I didn't eat right but because I DID but never got RESULTS. I had been to doctor after doctor and weight loss clinic after weight loss clinic. To make a long story short, when I began to fail at my weight loss each entity basically said, "You MUST be cheating." Uh, no. Even my doctors said "you're cheating. " I was the girl who was constantly on a diet, saying no to goodies at work, exercising at my gym six days a week, drinking a gallon of water a day, dumping tons of money into weight loss programs, and watching skinnier people eat more and exercise less. Can I just tell you... I wanted to scream! Well now, Thank God, I finally got a doctor to actually listen to me. All the PROPER tests later and I find out I not only have a form of hypothyroidism but PCOS to boot. Double whammy. I am now on medication for both and am hoping this will help me metabolize like a normal human being and lose some weight. I've been told it will still be hard so I'm here to start that journey and hopefully meet others with the same challenges.

Have a great day all!! I'm so happy to be here!!!!
