On My Way to a Wunderful Life!

My name is Carrie and I am 33 years old. I was always "chunky" growing up and I never liked to exercise because I was tired and sore all the time. I was eventually diagnosed with Fibromyalgia at age 20. Yuck!

Several years, multiple diets, many medications, and six surgeries later, I was fluctuating between 275 and 290 pounds. After finding some great doctors and a combination of medications that work for me, I am taking my life back! I am ready to get fit and healthy!

Hi Carrie!

Sorry to hear you were laid up for a while with another disc problem. Glad you were able to avoid surgery for now, though.

Were you able to celebrate Christmas in spite of the grumpy disc? Or were you in too much pain to enjoy it?

You take care of yourself.

Hi there! How are things? Thanks for stopping by the other week.

Did you find the setting for receiving notifications when someone comments on a pic? If not, go to your sparkpage (haha, we're on it right now). Click on "edit sparkpage". At the very top at the right there are choices and getting emails when someone comments on a photo is right there.
