welcome to the team! Are you able to get to a pool? I was able to do water aerobics when I could barely walk--saved my sanity. Best to you and your family, HANG IN THERE!

Hi - You can feel proud that you are here - and enjoy the support. It is good to know you are truly not alone.

You are fortunate to have found a partner who loves you unconditionally. His expectations of you are that you be who you really are - pain and all.

I don't know the answers to this weight struggle, but there is something about relaxing, taking it slowly and being honest about your behaviors...small steps...

Go get 'em!

Your husband obviously sees more than just your body. Sounds like you must be a good person. A lot of hard work and Spark can be the combination you are looking for. Welcome and good luck to you.

Alright, this is it...ya'll are my last hope! I'm a 32 year old mother of one, wife, writer, student, support group organizer, etc, etc. lol. Needless to say, I keep rather busy. I have psoriatic arthritis, which started at age 17. I currently take shots of Humira every other week and daily Celebrex for pain. Just this past winter my PA was so bad that I spent almost 3 months bedridden. My poor husband took over the running of the household and the running after our then 2 year old (he turned 3 on July 3). I am very thankful to have a man who was willing to do all of the things he did.

Anyway, long story short, I have dealt with weight issues all my life. I graduated high school at 250 lbs. I was 278 when I got pregnant with my son, and at one point in 2009 I remember crying because I was at my highest weight ever, 317 lbs. I currently weigh 305 and it just makes me sick every time I think about it. I cry a lot because of my weight, and even more so when my husband tells me how much he loves me. I do not see how he can love so much of me :(
