Hi!

Hi everyone, I'm new!
I'm Jenna, 32, and wanting to lose weight. I was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis and Fibromyalgia just a couple of years ago, though I've had the symptoms since I was 8 years old. I want to lose weight for my basic overall health, more specifically also for my joint health. Also for my own body image. The one thing that hinders me is the eating. I have had trauma in my past, and thus I have PTSD. So my main way of coping is binge eating. Therefore, I've gained weight. Gestational diabetes (pregnancy) didn't help matters either! But, I'm really sick and tired of the bingeing thing. I started making changes little by little for the last year. Now, I eat mostly healthy. I've continued to progress, and no matter how down I get, I still manage to pull through and not let it get the best of me. I am so ready to get even healthier, and lose the weight! With RA, it can get pretty hard determining what would be safe for me to do in the gym, and what to stay away from. But so far, I have a pretty good routine going on, and I do switch it up every few weeks. I can be at the gym for an hour and a half, and still feel pretty good. I'm very excited about all of this!
