I started out in life as a preemie in New Hampshire. I grew up looking like Olive Oyl, but after having 7 children I blossomed into Bluto.

I had gotten married when I was 17.5 years old, weighing 90 pounds.
I gained some weight with pregnancies and yo-yo'd over the years. I am now 203# (June 2019). That's more than twice the person that I used to be.

I have arthritis, scoliosis, peripheral neuropathy, and grew up with rheumatic fever. I had open-heart surgery in high school because mom got German Measles while she was pregnant so I was born with a hole in my heart. I spent time in a wheelchair after getting hit by a drunk driver when I was 4 yrs old. While I was pregnant I was told that I was pre-diabetic...and I still eat to much junk.

June 2019:
I decided to go back to a low carb diet..well pescatarian low-carb, except for days I might grab chicken from the EDR. Is there a word for someone who eats chicken, fish and veggies...besides "picky"?
Anyways, I lost 6.6#s this month. My weakness seems to be little peppermint candies at work.
