Thank you so much! I have dealt with a lot of people's criticism because i have never been over weight but I have been heavy and even now at 5 foot 3 and 141 pounds I'm trying to loose weight and people have ridiculed me for wanting to get healthy. They say I can't believe your trying to loose weight that's just stupid. I said No, what's stupid is I'm 21 years old and 6 months ago I couldn't ride more then 1/4 mile on a bike and I have the early stages of heart disease, that's Stupid. I'm just happy to have found SparkPeople and so many encouraging people.
Thank you so Much!!

Hi I'm Mel, I currently live in West Virginia I am 21 years old and started getting into biking when the doctor told me I have the early stages of heart disease. I have lost 15 pounds from starting and I am down two and a half inches, so I am going to stick with it and see how healthy I can get! I hope to be able to contribute to this team.
