My name is Carrie. I was always "chunky" growing up and I never liked to exercise because I was tired and sore all the time. I was eventually diagnosed with Fibromyalgia at age 20. Several years, multiple diets, many medications, and seven surgeries later, I was fluctuating between 275 and 290 pounds. After finding some great doctors and combination of medications that work for me, I am taking my life back! I am ready to get fit and healthy!

Goal #3 - Eat within the recommended range of FIBER for one month.

Goal #4 - Get back into the size 14 coral dress that I haven't been able to fit into since high school (Fortunately, it is one of those dresses that never really go out of style - simple, with clean lines).

Goal #5 -*New Goal* Do a 5 mile "Walk Away the Pounds" workout.
(Do a 3 mile "Walk Away the Pounds" workout! Met 6/5/13!)

Long Term Goal - Lose enough weight that my BMI is in the Overweight range instead of Obese. Then, on to the Healthy range!

    Hi Carrie!

    Sorry to hear you were laid up for a while with another disc problem. Glad you were able to avoid surgery for now, though.

    Were you able to celebrate Christmas in spite of the grumpy disc? Or were you in too much pain to enjoy it?

    You take care of yourself.

    Hi there! How are things? Thanks for stopping by the other week.

    Did you find the setting for receiving notifications when someone comments on a pic? If not, go to your sparkpage (haha, we're on it right now). Click on "edit sparkpage". At the very top at the right there are choices and getting emails when someone comments on a photo is right there.
