So, I'm starting again and making a commitment to myself to stay focused and consistent. 1/14/12.

Hi, my name is Annie. I use to be a very healthy, fun, active, loving, social person and then about 15 years ago I started gaining weight. I tried every diet, I exercised hard, and I eventually gave up on myself. I became a hermit and continued downhill until I woke up I realized I have to fight for myself or I will not be around much longer. I have a very challenging road ahead of me, but I am going to stay positive and utilize every tool I can think of to help me find the person I should never have lost in the first place. With love and support from my family and friends I know I can do this. Let the journey begin...

Member Since: 3/19/2010

Fitness Minutes: 215

My Goals:
My goal is to lose 257 pounds. I don't care if it takes me 15 years to do it. As long as I am becoming a healthier person each day. I want to live the kind of life I can only dream about right now. It is the kind of life I use to live before gaining to 407 pounds and I now have the confidence I need to do it along with a very supportive family..

My Program:
I had my first appointment yesterday with a bariatric physician at Emory Health Clinic. She is monitoring my health along with placing my on a Type 2 diabetes meal plan. As far as I know I do not have diabetes, but she felt this would be the easiest plan to follow for me and also a plan that my health allows me to follow.

Personal Information:
I am originally from Colorado. I moved to Georgia when I was 22. I have been married to my husband, Rick, for 27 years. We have two kids, a son who just turned 25 and a daughter who is 19. I have three dogs and one cat. I am a medical transcriptionist and don't get out of the house much at all (which I plan on changing :) )

Other Information:
I daydream a lot. I have fun with Facebook. I love love stories, action/adventure, romantic comedies, and dramas. I love different cultures. I love dance and music. I love flowers and gardening (but I don't do it enough). I need friends and family to support me in this new life of mine. :)

    do an online search and see if you can find a class that has them. My husband went and he was the one that talked me into getting them sooner.

    hello there. you asked about my kangoo jumps. my husband is over 350 and has the same ones that the company suggested. and he LOVES them. it takes a lot of stress off your knees. not to mention its like playing on a trampoline without having to get up on one. he has no problems with them at all.
    I really do love them and for the price it is worth it. Even if you just start off walking in them still a great way to start a healthy exercise routine. I run at 5 am so i am not stopped and asked about them though. but I am working my way to a 5k in the fall.
    good luck emoticon
