Exercise 1st... Spark 2nd. Works for me!

Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.

Instead of giving myself reasons why I can't I give myself reasons why I can.

Tired of starting over? Stop giving up!!

NEVER QUIT =]

emoticon Dolphin! We have a LOT in common and I almost felt you were writing MY story, with only a few details changed, so I'm going to send you a private message. I think we can support each other but I would prefer to do it thru SparkMail and perhaps in person if you live anywhere near me - I'm in Orange County.

Either way, I'm so glad you've found SparkPeople and hope you will get/stay active because there is a TON of support here. I'd love to get to know you better and I'm sure there are many others who will feel the same way!

I am a 39 year young female. I have had trouble with my weight since I have been around 22 or so. I was always an extremely thin and slightly sickly child. And then I started dating someone who *really enjoyed their food*. Unfortunately, I begin starting to enjoy said food just as much. But, because of my bad knees, hips, and lack of stamina I have never been able to exercise very well.

Currently I am 230 pounds at 5'9". I have high blood pressure and hypothyroidism. At times I have been able to lose weight. Back in 2005 I went from 220 to 125 pounds. I was on the migraine medicine "Topamax" at the time. I also cut out all alcohol and would walk 4 miles a day I was also using Slim Fast for breakfast and lunch. Unfortunately I had to stop taking "Topamax", because it should really be called "dopamax". It literally made me the village idiot. Also in 2006 I got divorced. I because very depressed and gained all of the weight that I had lost, plus some. Last year I went from 210 to 185, but then had another set back with the depression and have once again gained the weight back.

I am now trying to get at least down under 200 again. I am really feeling the extra weight, especially as I get older. I am really hoping that coming here and tracking my "stuff" might get me motivated again.

Well, thanks for listening,
Dolphin

Sweet, senstive, Purple Dolphin losing some weight!
