My name is Melissa and I am an Acts 2:38 Apostolic woman from Ohio. I was baptised in the precious blood of Jesus on February 15th, 2006 and received the precious gift of the Holy Ghost December 27th, 2006!! I started to introduce myself as a mother and wife, but I am more than that. While my wonderful husband Brian and my beautiful 5 yr old Jared are my life, this is about me. I am a 36 yr old woman who has mutliple auto-immune disorders, the latest one inspired me the most to get this weight off. I was DX with Addison's Disease which is actually counter productive to losing weight as my adrenal glands aren't working on their own to regulate my metabolism. I am on medication for it, but it was then when I realized that my life was severely debilitated that I said to myself that I needed to take care of ME, because if I dont, I can't take care of the ones that I love and the family that needs me. I want to see my child grow up, and see his children....I want to be able to run and play with him instead of saying "mommy can't, she isnt able to" I can do this, and I have to put me first. Getting out of "mommy" mode and into "Me" mode and doing this for myself. I need to turn to Christ more for my support and strength. I can do all things through Christ Phil 4:1

My Goals:
My goal is to get down to 150lbs from my original starting weight of 248. I will begin stage two of spark people's plan. I am both nervous and excited. I am trying to balance my medication so that I may add some sort of excercise to my routine as well.

My Program:
So far I am simply trying to follow the guidelines yet still eating what I have around the house on a budget which is extremely difficult. I am currently unable to excercise the way I want, but I am working on that slowly.

Personal Information:
I am a wife to Brian, and a mother to 5 yr old Jared. Jared has recently been diagnosed with PPD, NOS~mood disorder~ADHD~ with Asperger tendencies. We live in Dayton Ohio, and attend a wonderfuly supportive Light St. Apostolic Church where I am a praise singer, on the sign praise team, I am in the choir and the Chorale and help with our children's ministry on Wed. nights and our youth group..
