OCCUPATION: I teach first grade iin the Bronx in the New York City Schools system. I always wanted to teach in the suburbs but no one is retiring, so there are no jobs there.
More about me: I have been overweight since I was 19. I went away to college and lost 30 lbs by eating following the food pyramid. Then my mom died and i gained the weight back, and more. I've struggled with my weight since, that was 3 years ago. I had all the signs of PCOS, weight gain, hair thinning, acne. I asked my gynecologist about it. I was tested, and was recently diagnosed with Insulin resistance. I have it so badly that I have the darkening of the skin behind your neck.
I hope to meet some people that understand what I'm going through.
