I joined SP on Nov 23rd 2012 with the hopes that the tools , support and motivation here at SP will assist me on the remainder of my journey .
My first "official " weigh in on SP Monday 11/26/12..179.4

I started tracking my weight on :12/28/11
12/28/11= 232.8 START WEIGHT over this year (2012 ) I have lost 53.4 pounds .

About Me
I have been VERY thin and VERY unhealthy and i have been 256((my top weight)) so this journey for me is about getting and being HEALTHY..
I was diagnosed with hashimoto's thyroid disease April 2011
I was diagnosed with celiac disease May 2011 . Hence the gluten free diet.
My liver and kidney issues are related to my celiac's.
2011 was a rough year.
I have been vegan or vegetarian for most of my adult life.
After my celiac diagnoses I had so many dietary restrictions I had to incorporate some animal protein back into my diet .
I must admit I do enjoy having eggs and dairy back in my diet .
I do not see my self being vegan again because of the simple fact ,, with my dietary restrictions it would be next to impossible to ingest enough protein to maintain a healthy body.
Maintaining a healthy body is what this journey is about .
One of my goals is to try to learn to eat to maintenance while losing the weight . I feel that learning to eat to maintenance is MUCH harder than losing the weight and is something that many of us over look during our weight loss journey .
I started tracking my weight on :12/28/11
12/28/11= 232.8 START WEIGHT over this year (2012 ) I have lost 53.4 pounds .

My goals

1st to be healthy and fit.
