Alex/Amaranth never giving up! (though restarted once a year :) !

Hi, I'm Alexandra, also called Amaranth online, and I've been on this website since June 2008. Unfortunately the first time and many after those it didn't quite work, but one of the things I've learned on here is never give up. So, always restarting, always trying again. I'm working on getting my eating under control with my therapist and have recently given up diet soda, which helped with cravings. I am doing a keto diet on days I can avoid binges.

Hi, I'm Alexandra, also called Amaranth online, and I've been on this website since June 2008. Unfortunately the first time and many after those it didn't quite work, but one of the things I've learned on here is never give up. So, always restarting, always trying again. I'm working on getting my eating under control with my therapist and have recently given up diet soda, which helped with cravings. I am doing a keto diet on days I can avoid binges.

I live in Salem, Oregon and my hobbies are reading books, re-enacting (SCA) roleplaying (mushes and Amtgard) and playing music. I also write songs and do a lot of other creative stuff.

I work at a local Department of the State and deal with some mental health issues like PTSD and a Dissociation Disorder and on the physical front I deal with Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Diabetes. Sometimes that makes exercising really difficult but when I'm doing well enough I bicycle to work on an electric bike and that makes a huge difference!

Alex--I think we made connections at some other point--I have been with SP since '07 and I started a SP group called Biggest Loser Couples in Jan. '08 (it has been inactive for quite awhile, as have been I). I thought we should connect, because we are having some of the same issues with diabetes struggles and I live near you (in Woodburn). I will send you a PM with more info about me...but in the meantime--Hi! emoticon

BTW--my Sparkpage has not been updated since 2010...
