Sooo since I have started over "AGAIN" maybe I should start over in THIS part of the site. I moved to Fl from MD in May 2008. There is a LOT of stress here :(. I miss MD and my friends there but am working on enjoying HERE, and NOW, am lucky to have some friends from High School & my old neighborhood living down here....but they are over an hour 1/2 away. In the time I have been here I found an AMAZING doctor who has found the key to what has made losing weight soo difficult for me. (well not the losing so much as the KEEPING it off) Now that we have found the "key" maybe we can find the LOCK it fits in and FIX it :) Today is what matters, today is where I get to start over. Today is a GOOD day as I somehow found ENERGY that I have bee missing the last few months. And maybe Today is the day WE meet and get to support each other.

Using this site HELPS!!

So many valuable resources. and awesome support.

From the Baltimore area of MD, (actually between Baltimore and Annapolis) I miss it but am starting to find areas around here I can enjoy.

Other Information:
Sometimes along the way to our dreams/goals we get derailed and find a BETTER dream/goal. (would like to say I came up with this but I saw something along the same lines on a notebook in a grocery store)
