Looking real pale in between infectious diseases... But who cares right? Lol





First time dressed up since surgery. Yep, I've gained 20 pounds since last year at this time.





Max with his coveted donut. He plays with it & I don't have to enterain him. Best $1.63 I spent.



I have 46 pics in my gallery

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!

Ang, I know you'll get back to exercising regularly as soon as you are able because you're as determined as I am to keep moving but try not to overdo it. My dad twisted his ankle two months ago and started hiking again far too soon and now he's in agony most of the time and is doing physio.

I know you can take a lot of pain but it's one thing to have uncontrollable pain. It's a completely other thing to cause your own pain.

Take care, girlfriend!

It was so nice to hear from you again.

Well Sweetie Ang, I've missed you so much too, and all our antics that we've played back and forth. Oh, and I'm still working to get some sort of a car, but more than likely not a beetle bug. I would not be happy with my dear Roger reading all the reviews and pa-pooing my love for the thing. I really wouldn't want to be broke down for the umth-teenth time either!! I still have to lose all the weight over again. I went swimming again today so that was good and it felt so good. I wonder if going into a pool would be such a good feeling to you, as it is to me??!! The warmth surrounds my joints and I feel no pain for one whole hour. I think of you lots and lots, girl!! Loving you, Karen
