I'm back and still taking baby steps to move myself forward. I'm slowly figuring things out.

Member Since: 8/24/2008

My Goals:
At my heaviest, I weighed 290 lbs. I've lost and gained back the same weight over and over again. Right now I'm climbing out of a hole that left me near the starting point again on my weight loss path, but I've never given up trying to be healthy.

My Program:
---limit portions
---continually build up my exercise time
---get rid of aspartame from my diet and replace it with stevia
---choose fresh unprocessed food when possible
---exercise regularly
---stretch everyday for mobility and flexibility
---be aggressively thankful for everything

Personal Information:
I am a 40-ish, happily divorced Texan who is shy, quirky, spiritual, and working on being a more confident me. I am getting more comfortable with who I am, accepting my faults and celebrating my successes. I do medical billing for a living and I work in a cubicle, which fits my personality perfectly because I am an introvert and can listen to the radio all day (I listen to local talk radio, various programs on Truth Frequency Network, Wretched Radio, or music on my mp3 player.) I have a very simple life, which I am thankful for, I've had enough drama in my past to last me forever so simple is good.

Other Information:
I love to read anything from self-help books to Stephen King. I am interested in politics and social issues. I love animals and have a chocolate lab and a calico cat. Life can be so difficult and ugly so I appreciate funny people who can find the humor in things and don't take themselves too seriously. I love scary movies (the gorier the better!), playing on Facebook, listening to political/religious podcasts, listening to music (all kinds but classic rock is my favorite), working sudoku and crossword puzzles, playing solitaire and mah-jong, and watching tv (I like The Walking Dead, Big Brother and Survivor, Orange is the New Black, Ray Donovan, and a lot of others.)

    I've had 3 or 4 colonoscopys. They'Re really not that bad. And you'Re not naked. You'Re asleep before they start. It's the prep (laxatives) that's a hassel. Please don't be deterred by what you think is going to happen. I'm a nurse and know what goes on while you'Re asleep. Everybody on the staff is so professional. Please don't worry. It's really not bad. Actually, when I was 23 years old, I had a colonoscopy WITHOUT any anesthesia. Even that was tolerable. So go ahead and get it done. It could save your live! marcey =^..^=
