I am a medically retired military veteran and single mom. When I came home from Iraq in 2007, I found out that my neck had been broken for 6 months and that I had PTSD. Between the medications, surgery, and depression I put on a hundred pounds.

I have been trying to lose the weight, get back in shape, and find myself once again, but it has been hard and I tend to do a lot of self-sabotage. I have tried just about every product on the market, all kinds of different diets, and all ...
I am a medically retired military veteran and single mom. When I came home from Iraq in 2007, I found out that my neck had been broken for 6 months and that I had PTSD. Between the medications, surgery, and depression I put on a hundred pounds.

I have been trying to lose the weight, get back in shape, and find myself once again, but it has been hard and I tend to do a lot of self-sabotage. I have tried just about every product on the market, all kinds of different diets, and all the "magic" pills there are. Nothing has worked. I also have no real support or friends since the divorce.

I have returned home to SparkPeople in the hopes of finding the much needed support and maybe a friend of two that will keep me on track and give me a boot in the rear when I need it.
