Alex/Amaranth in it for the Long Haul!

Hi, I'm Alexandra, also called Amaranth online, and I've been on this website since June 2008. Unfortunately the first time didn't quite work, but now I'm trying again. I'm working on getting my eating under control with my therapist and have been doing an adapted 'medium carb' type of diet.

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

I work at the State Department and deal with some mental health issues like PTSD and a Dissociation Disorder and on the physical front I deal with Fibromyalgia. Sometimes that makes exercising really difficult but 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...

I see that you joined the Living Binge Free team awhile back. A very belated welcome! We concentrate more on learning to eat sanely in all situations with all foods rather than directly on weight loss. Over time, we can learn to be happy with and even prefer lot less manufactured food and less food in general. I've put in over 4 years and lost about 40 lbs., about 21% of my former weight. It wasn't easy every second, but it's been totally worth it! Come check out our 21-day streak thread or the June thread, our most active ones or start your own!
