Hello - Newbie from Southern California
I typically do not post on any introduction page and usually jump right in but because I randomly stumbled on this website, I felt I should.
My name is Kat and I'm 18 years old - I gained 100 lbs. due to anti - depressant medications and depression itself. When I finally reached 235, I decided to suck it up and loose the weight only to have a terrible accident January of 2009, resulting in a terrible knee and back injury.
I gained another 30 lbs. Fortunately, I am not diabetic but I know that if I want to be in less pain overall, I need to loose the weight. My insurance is rejecting every request for a nutritionist or P.T. and no doctor is willing to sign off on any exercise plan - so I've decided to suck up the pain and do something about it.
I've done it alone and it hasn't work (0 motivation) so I hope joining this community will help.
I wish everyone the best of luck on their journeys!
