Hello everyone. My name is Marissa. I am 28 years old and live in Plant City, Florida. I have struggled with my weight my whole life. When I was 20, I went on a diet and exercise regimen and managed to lose 65 lbs taking me to 182. (I am 6'1) That weight was in my healthy range. I was on top of the world. Then my world came crashing down. My dad committed suicide and my then boyfriend dumped me a month later. This caused me to spin out of control with emotional eating. I gained all the weight back. On top of all that, I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2007 which extensively limited my amount of physical activity I was capable of. I am currently engaged to a wonderful man, Shane, who is my inspiration in life. He keeps me headed in the right direction. The one problem with our relationship is we both struggle with our weight and we are both enablers to each other. We both want to be healthy and live a long, happy life together, but we are having problems getting on a health plan and sticking to it. I am hoping Sparkpeople will be able to give me some insight on HOW to eat right and exercise properly. Oh, I didn't mention I didn't really lose weight the most healthy of ways before....so I never really learned how to feul my body correctly. I would love to meet some people on here for motivation! I am very excited to have found a place for FREE that offers so much. Thank you so much Sparkpeople.com and I hope to be meeting many of you in the future!
