I'm Chelsea :) I'm currently working through depression and bi-polar disorder without medication. I've always had an issue with my weight, and recently with my fiance moving in, and birth control, I've gained 40 pounds in the last year. At the beginning of 2011 I was 255 pounds, (I'm 5'6" :/ ), but am down to 240 :) I would love to meet some friends who are going through the same thing I am, and could offer support :)

I have metaphysical and spiritual interests. I like to to write in my spare time and TV is a guilty pleasure.

Hi! I'm Cay. I've been a peertrainer member since 2005, and was lucky to be in one of the first beta-groups. It's a spectacular program! I have lived a healthy life and exercised consistently, but on July 18, 2013 I suffered from a deep vein thrombosis (DVT) which could have killed me had I not made it to the ER in time. On July 4th I had fractured my foot and been placed in a non-weight bearing boot. The doctor's in the ER said that the 16 inch DVT (in my right leg) was caused by immobilization due to the fracture. I am now on blood thinners and the recovery has been slow. I am still non-weight bearing and need surgery to repair the foot (a screw to hold the bones together) but cannot have the surgery because I'm on blood thinners and the risk would be too high (because of the preexisting DVT which can break off and cause a pulmonary embolism). I am trying my best to stay positive and eat an anti-inflamatory diet.

From California, 61 years old and STILL working as an agency social worker. I love the outdoors, I am a foodie. I want to be better at self care and finding balance in life. Started PT 8/3/13.
