Hi there! It's really comforting to find people who face issues that I do in the quest for health, I'm so happy to have found this community, so here's me.

DATE: July 28, 2014

USERNAME/REAL NAME: Chelaina

AGE: 22

BIRTHDAY: January 11

MARITAL STATUS: Single

CHILDREN/AGES: No kids yet, just a sweet nephew who just passed 1 month

HOBBIES/INTERESTS: I love to read and watch WAY too many TV shows, playing softball and volleyball, crafting, and I love music but I have no talent for it

PETS: 2 dogs and 3 kitties

TOP WEIGHT: 266

CURRENT WEIGHT: 266

GOAL WEIGHT: 160

HEIGHT: 5'4"

EYE COLOR: blue/green, depending on what I'm wearing

HAIR COLOR: blonde, but it's dyed brown right now

OCCUPATION: I work in a group home for girls in fostercare with behavioral issues, and as a cashier at a local store. Busy busy

GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION: Western Washington

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: Finding and keeping my motivation and will power. I have a lot of goals and good intentions and I tend to trip up and not meet them. Some of the time it's due to losing the battle with depression and anxiety. I have PCOS as well, which, of course, makes everything a bit harder.

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: This community, I think. Plus I recently graduated from college and have done a lot of growing up and learning about myself in the last couple months.

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU?
Nothing I can think of! I'm a big nerd who would rather curl up on the couch with some tea and the 5th season of Supernatural than do anything else. And I love making new friends, so... hello

I questioned posting on this forum but am pulling out all the stops on this weight loss effort so here it goes:

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: Have come the closest to a diagnosis and I believe me and my doctor have finally found the correct combination of medications that keep my mind more focused and positive. In doing so I also realize the importance of using other methods of fighting my condition to stay in a healthier state both mentally and physically.

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU? It has been a long battle to find myself....40+ years actually. Some in my life would call it a life wasted, I call it a new beginning.
