I am a 24 yr. old student from Indiana. I have been overweight my whole life but in the last 5 years I have really packed on the weight. I was born with a genetic disorder, Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, and I have been disabled my whole life due to it. I then fell in November of 2013 and dislocated both patellas at the same time. This really changed my life dramatically. I primarily use a wheelchair but in the house at home I hobble or use a walker or rollator. I wear knee braces 24/7 and live my life in fear. Weight loss has been a side note these last two years but I am so tired of spending my life hidden by this weight. I don't know the answers to fix it and I lack motivation a lot of the time (it's hard to find motivation when you live in chronic pain) however I am determined to change my life around. Other side notes for myself would be that I am a vegan and I eat gluten free due to wheat allergy (I have a slew of other allergies). I have also been a member of spark people multiple times in the past but have deleted the accounts when I felt I wasn't going to accomplish anything with it. Third time's the charm though! emoticon
