4/10/07 Updating my page after having not been on since January. Wow look how bad I have let myself go. I sit here now a day before my 32nd birthday. Feeling lost, confused and not sure where to turn. So like riding a bike I am back and trying again.

After many years of every diet imaginable. A 26 hour car ride to audition for the television show the biggest loser, with no call back. I am and able to say that this is "MY TIME TO BEGIN".

My current medical diagnoses are OBESITY (Ok they call it Grotese OBESITY). Such a nasty sounding word. I have type II diabetes treated with Lantus and Byetta, High Blood Pressure treated with Quinapril and Quinaretic, Hypothyroidism treated with Synthroid and PCOS treated now with a low carb diet and diabetic regimen. Was taking Metformin however made me have uncontrollable gastric concerns. Latly I was diagnosed one month ago with ADHD. The positive to this is that the Adderall makes me not want to eat....

Never have I ever wanted something so much for myself. Without this I feel I will meet my end before I even reach 40. I want to be happy and live life again. I want to know what I have never known before. Today I top the scale at 365 pounds, 10 ponds down from highest weight in Feb 06 of 375 pounds.

I dream to do even the smallest and most simplest things in life. Such as crossing my legs at the knee, walking a flight of stairs without panting and having to stop, walking into any establishment knowing I can fit in the seats and knowing they wont break, shopping at wal-mart again for clothes, or even in a non-pus size store, drving my car without the seat belt extender, ride a roller coaster or go-kart. Be able to walk with my head held high, really knowing that I have accomplished the one thing in my life that I have never been able to accomplish. That being to control my weight! I want to walk down the street without the fear that everyone is staring because I am over weight.

Lastly I want to be a mom. My husband and I have endured a miscarriage and recently being told that pregnancy will nearly be impossible at our current weight. We have begun to adopt internationaly. However on the application you are asked your weight. I want to be able to truthfuly answer that I am healthy and able to care for my child.

I want to thank each of you for taking the time to visit and read my page. I know that there are thousands of others out there that can share in my emotions and feelings along this journey to this present point. I want everyone to know that you can always email me and I would love to learn about your individual stories. If I can help myself by helping even one other person, I will live even a more fullfilled life. Best of luck to everyone who is on this journey to making themselves healthier and happier.
