I'm 29 years old, and I've been struggling with my weight since college. I've tried various diets, and I've been temporarily successful in the past, but nothing ever sticks for me. I've gotten down as low as 180, but I always put it back on within a year. I'm going to start trying to get pregnant soon, and I want to be healthy when I do. I've also been noticing more health problems (joint pain, skin issues, lack of energy), and I'm not always able to do all the things that I enjoy or want to do. I want to feel better physically and feel better about myself.

29 years old, 6 feet tall, 208 lbs.

I have always been a very active and sports oriented person however over the past year I have had some unfortunate health issues. In June of last year at only 23 I had to have an organ removed very unexpectedly in an emergency surgery. After having the surgery I was off work for about 10 weeks, in that time I had two more hospital stays. When I had returned to work my body wasn't ready I guess because I then suffered a string of complications involving respiratory issues along with developing a severe case of H1-N1flu which again I was subsequently hospitalized for about a week. I had started to make progress with my health and for about a month and a half I thought I was returning to normal function. At the beginning of 2014, around the middle of January I suffered an acute, traumatic brain injury as a consequence of a tragic fall down a flight of stairs. I had no short term memory, could not remember my parents, and was not even able to write my name. On top of all that I could not remember when the last time I at was or even what I had eaten. It has been a long 5 months of recovery, therapy, visits to specialists and a multitude of testing, however I am now almost back to my former self and will be able to fully take my life back within the next month or two. All of the above being said it has resulted in a lot of muscle loss, weight gain and an overall feeling of uselessness, which brings me to why I am here, I need some help. I need to be motivated and feel like this impossible task is not actually impossible, but totally realistic. I am a dedicated, hardworking person with a lot of will power and I know I can do this but I also know I could use some support and encouragement along the way.
