April 2018

I'm new to FS. I finally decided it's time for some accountability in my weight loss endeavors.

I'm 46 and I live in Las Vegas, NV. I have a roommate who's been my best friend since 1993. I have two dogs (aka my kiddos, haha!), Thing 1 and Thing 2. They are robust, healthy, playful, and a little sarcastic and crabby at times. Thing 1 is a Chihuahua. Thing 2 is a Rat Terrier/Chihuahua mix. They are my hearts.

I've been a paralegal for 18 years. Recently I started a business which provides virtual support to law firms. I enjoy being a small business owner.

My weight gain/weight loss journey began around 1997. If I were to ascertain a cause, I would say depression. I was in a miserable marriage at the time that ended in 2002. That first year, the pressure was on as a newlywed. My ex-husband had a penchant for very skinny women! I spent the first two years of my marriage trying in vain to please him, which involved beginning a weight training journey. I also helped him lose 100 lbs. Then, the last 3 years of my marriage were devoted to taking care of myself, my health pursuits, a solid fitness regiment, and finally extricating myself from that unhealthy relationship.

I continued to work out until 2004, at which time I quit fitness altogether. Again, depression (which I've battled my whole life and still struggle with). Since 2004 my weight has fluctuated, my highest weight 263 lbs. In 2014, I lost about 85 lbs, but regained about 40 of them back as of this year.

Now?

It's time to get serious about getting healthy. So, that decision led me here. I don't think I have the motivation to lose it all on my own. I am one who needs encouragement to thrive and I love being a support to those around me, as well. I care about others and I am always happy for your success, as well as mine.

Thank you for reading my journals and for your supportive comments. I look forward to some truly wonderful and positive exchanges!

Warmly,

Chrysalis ❤︎
