Excuse me while I adjust my attitude to better suit your needs... LOL!

That title means a lot to me right now... but by tomorrow I won't remember why. Yet another head injury.

I just want to lose weight so my pain would let up. (update: this was a lie.. not the only reason). I cannot stand the pain any longer. I have RA, hypertension, major depressive disorder, and osteoarthritis in most of my joints. I am a mess mentally and physically and this may be the only way I can help with the physical (update: you've all helped me mentally as well). ...

I have already quit drinking (Oct 2011) and have recently quit smoking after 12.5 years (Apr 2012). I am applying for disability because I have so much pain all through the day. I cannot get the proper treatment because I have no insurance as I cannot work. I need to do something about my weight. It's the only other thing I can try to control for myself.

So the theme of GETN2IT (getting to it) is over, and I am on top of it. I am going to flush those fat cells out of my arse and get moving again. Even if I am in pain, I am tired of living like a hermit and dying a little bit inside each day.

Time to wake up and smell MYSELF! I'm the only one holding myself back from change!! So now I will give my fat cells an eviction notice and fight them off!

Personal Information:
Angela Ritter
38 years old
Jacksonville, FL

I am NO LONGER single and trying to enjoy it. Getting my disability settlement has been a great buden lifted
from me and my parents who are now retired and living with me. They carried my expenses for 4 years, so now I do everything I can to pay them back every day.

I have osteoarthritis, degenerative joint and disc diseases, migraines, fractured neck, nerve, muscle and tissue damage, IBS, and lower back issues from when I broke my back about 19 years ago.

I fight depression on a daily basis and have been in a very ugly place for years. I hope this program will help me out of the abyss. (It has so far! 10 months and counting, but still struggling with large bouts of depression, but I feel like there MAY BE light at the end of the tunnel).

Other Information:
I am NEWLY on disability, an avid reader, and have led a sedentary lifestyle for the first 3 of the past 4 years. Since June 2012, I have been moving and shaking almost every day and am damn proud of that!

I have quit smoking, kinda quit gorging on food, and now am getting my weight under control. (Lost 50 pounds as of March 2013 & am working on the next 30!)

I am a hazard to myself most days, but am trying to keep moving through the pain. I am accident-prone. I can build a house and not break a nail, but make me shuffle paper and I can break an ARM! HAHA

And I love an emotionally unavailble man. Go figure. So the next man I date had better have it all together!

I'm baaaack!! Well, I'm still ON my back, but I've taken my first woozy, drunk-like steps this past 3 days. Only 4 or 5 at a time & paying for them later, but I did it. I'll write a blog to explain, but I got a disease in my spine & disk... Ugh!
