I joined Planet Fitness July 2, 2010. I renovated my kitchen in October 2011. No excuses not to exercise & eat healthy!

My parents are health conscious, they always have been. I grew up eating healthy and being active. I was always at a healthy weight (135 lbs) until my health changed in 2002. The doctor said I had Myofascial Pain Syndrome. She gave me so many pills, I was all loopy, still in pain and started gaining weight. I gained 25 pounds from all the pills (which included steroids) and not exercising anymore. I thought all hope was lost because my doctor said I would have this pain for the rest of my life.

In December 2011, I was at 140 lbs. then I started seeing another doctor. This doctor said he could completely heal me of all my pain! I laughed and cried hysterically at the same time, when he told me that. With all of the adjusting, manipulating, myofascia release, and prolotherapy injections I'm getting right now, I haven't been able to exercise as much...so I gained back 5 pounds.

Now I need to work on my nutrition more, cook more (which I don't like doing) and get back to exercising more than just 1 or 2 times a week.
