Hi all,
Welcome to my sparkpage and thank you for visiting. My journey has been long and at times tortuous. I weighed in at my heaviest in April of 2005 when I weighed 210 lbs. This weight was accumulated as a result of inactivity, overeating, and overuse of prednisone to control my out of control asthma. I started my official journey in April 2005 with workouts and smarter eating. When I finally got serious about it in November of 2005, I joined Biggest Loser online and started losing weight seriously. I lost close to 45 lbs and in January of 2006 I joined Sparkpeople. I had lots of ups and downs with my health in 2006 and ended up gaining most of my weight back. After a lengthy battery of tests in June of 2006 I got my asthma under control and started on the weight loss trail again. In November of 2006 I had my acid reflux corrected and I have not looked back at 210 lbs since. I started losing and it just keeps coming off. I hope I inspire some of you that are dealing with health problems. It is possible to take the weight off even if you have gained it because of medication. Trust the process and take your time. It will come off.

    Hi, I noticed on your page that you teach. I had to give up teaching last year because of auto-immune diseases out of control. If you don't mind my asking, what kind of illness do you have that keeps you on prednisone?

    Wow. I am really impressed with your progress. I stumbled across you when looking at the Prednizone team. I gained the majority of my weight from that. But, never had anyone who understood the hungers, face swelling, etc. Looking at your pix gives me encouragement that I won't always have that halo face. Joining the group.
