After being a slightly chubby teenager, I gained a bunch of weight in my early 20′s until I hit my heaviest point at 198 pounds. I joined Weight Watchers in 2005, started excercising and lost 60 pounds in 10 months.
I kept the weight off for about a year and a half than 20 pounds slowly crept back on.
In 2008, I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis which just completly complicated matters. I was in constant pain. Walking was difficult. I’d get out of bed in the morning and my joints would be stiff for 2 hours. Needles to say – excercise wasn’t happening. I gained another 15 more pounds.
So now – my RA is pretty much under control thanks to a crazy combination of medications. I’m back into excercising, lost
Being a fit chick with Rheumatoid Arthritis is my ultimate goal.
