My name is Cheryl I live in Tifton, GA., which is about 50 miles north of Valdosta. For me getting motivated to walk is hard as I am disabled due to a lot of different medical problems. My weight gain is mostly due to medications I take for neuropathy, fibromyalgia, and depression. Since I had to quit work in 2004 I have gained about 40 lbs. and I hate it because I use to work out all the time walking, lifting weights, and my job was a work out itself because I worked with people with develpmental disabilities and had to deal with wheel chairs and so on. When I was in shape I never looked my age now I do, I hate that. I am 48 yrs. old. Illness, being out of shape, depression, and taking a pile of medication everyday ages your body in a hurry.

Member Since: 3/9/2009

Fitness Minutes: 35

My Goals:
My goal is to go from 169 to 130 to feel better about myself and help with my fibromyalgia and arthritis and probably my depression.

My Program:
Don't have one yet trying to get started, although I have cut back on snacking on unhealthy foods. Recently I have been trying to pay more attention to the proportions on my plate to make sure I am getting the right amount of carbs and protiens.

Personal Information:
I was born in Tifton, GA., lived in W. Palm Beach, FL. for about 6 years and lived in Alabama for about a year and moved back to Tifton, GA where I lived until I was 23. After my second daughter was born in 1984 I moved to Nashville, GA and lived there for 16 years. In 2000 I got a better job offer and moved to Hahira, GA. I know a big move, about 25 miles from where I was living.
In 2005 I moved back to Tifton to be near my family because I had become so ill I didn't want to be far away from them, by that time both my daughters had left home. Six months after I moved back to my home town my Mom passed away suddenly and already being depressed, that sent me in a downward spiral. Losing my mother has been so distressing I can hardly function. But after three long years without her to call up and just say "hi, I love you" I am learning to adjust slowly.

Other Information:
As I said in my intro I love walking. I use to sew a lot and still love to, I enjoy crocheting when my arthritis allows me to. Reading books, mostly medical, educational, self help, true stories, and sometimes fiction. TV isn't a favorite past time but I do love a good movie occasionally. My computer takes up most of my time once I get on to check my emails, I start surfing or reading blogs I also have a journal on journal live where I am writing my life story but it has been a very slow process.
