I'm Marisa.
I have gained and lost so many times over the years that I just stopped Caring .My Highest weight is 309.4 pounds. For a Short Person it's Awful. It's not Healthy and at this Weight I could Die in a Year, if not Sooner. I went to the ER because I was not getting enough Oxygen and My Levels Were really low. They did an X-ray
and Saw that my Heart was enlarged. I go to a Heart Doctor Next Month to See what's Next. Diets are Really Hard for Me Because I'm
Addicted to Food. I can't eat one Cookie, Bowl of Ice Cream, or Chips. it's the whole thing or nothing. So I'm Here to Learn and Be Supported in My next step. I found some good Starter exercise Videos on line and I like a lot of them. The Sparks people Coaches are Awesome. I'm Tired of Feeling sad. I'm Tired of Feeling tired all the time. I'm tired and I'm only 55 years old. I'm not asking for a Hand out. Just a Hand up. I need all the help I can Get and that's Why I started Here......Marisa

    Hi Marisa - so glad you have come to Sparkpeople

    Have read your sparkpage - looks good.

    Remember to participate as often as possible on all the groups you have joined as that is where you will be encouraged and motivated.

    I have a group called Recovering Food Addicts Needing Support
    If you are a food addict and are working to recovery from this I would like then to invite you to the group - you can come to my sparkpage to have a look at the group. There are 2 of us and we post lots to encourage each other and all that join us are asked to post at least once a month. So you consider yourself a food addict and are willing to participate at least once a week we would love to have you.
