I agree - great name you have there!
I read your post in someone elses thread, and think you definitely have your head screwed on in regards to your weightloss. I think you're similar to me, in that you know what you have to do to lose the weight... but its just a matter of patience and perseverence!
I'm sorry to hear about your health issues, im sure when you hit your idea weight (do you havea particular goal weight in mind, btw?) that overcoming the extra obstacles will make it all the sweeter.
