Members profiles:
I am a recent college graduate. In my second year of college I was diagnosed with a condition that no longer allows me to run. I had surgery and was one of the few that it did not work on. Prior to the diagnosis, I was running 15-20 miles a week and just starting to train for my first triathlon with my sister. Those dreams came to a halt. After learning that I could not run anymore, I lost all motivation to exercise. In my mind, there was nothing better than running and nothing else burned enough calories. Needless to say, I packed on the pounds. That was over 2 years ago. This January I stepped onto the scale and topped out at 175 (I am 5' 3"). It was this day that something clicked in my head. It finally dawned on me that I could not be living my life like this anymore. It is my hope that by losing the 47 pounds, I will be able to slowly work my way back to small amounts of running. I know that someday I will have the "runner's high" and that is what keeps me motivated.
