I'm a late bloomer for the idea of getting healthy. At the age of 36, I find that I deal with chronic fatigue, pain in my back, legs, and feet, I have trouble breathing, and I'm tired of my size limiting my activities. Realizing that it is time to take back my life and my body, I am here to use Sparkpeople to make healthy lifestyle changes while working with doctors to get the weight off.

I hope to share my experiences and meet some friends along the way. Whether local or long distance, support is important. I hope that I can be as much of a support to others as they will be to me and be an example of you can start anywhere you are at whatever weight you're at.
