wow girl!!! just reading your post was inspiring!! i can imagine the journey you took to get where you are now!! I'm where you were in the beginning....still going through the diet pill/"anything else but good diet/exercise approach"....I'm looking for the easy way out and all this does is get me back to square one with a bit heavier load to carry each time. Like you, I am at 220 something and my goal weight is 170 for starters. Not asking for much more than a healthy weight goal. It's just finding that motivation that I used to have way back when.... anywayz, just thought i'd stop by to say "You Go Girl!" I'm even proud of you!!!!! by the way, my name is iva :-)
Please share with me how you were able to stick with it!! I was doing great before the holidays and then we had three weeks of ice and snow here and I stopped going to the gym and it went down hill from there. I can't seem to get back on track and am really looking for advice from someone who has succeeded. My goal is to lose 35 lbs, but I would be happy at this point to get started with 5 or 10. I feel like I have to start all over again and I can't seem to get the momentum to get going. What's your advice??

Way to go on meeting your goals!! You are so inspiring...that's just amazing.
Totally makes me feel like I can do it, too.
Losing weight is a little like hiking. If you only look at how big the mountain (or how much you want to lose) is, it becomes overwhelming. But, if instead you look just 5 feet (or 5 pounds) ahead, it isn't quite so hard!

i want to start off thanking everyone out there.. Everyone who had joined sparkspeople.com and of course the biggest thank you to sparkpeople.com, i started off at 220 lbs my goal was 160 lbs before my wedding date... I followed everything they have told me to do and i was 159 the day i got married... I kept going and i am now 140 i am so happy and feel like a whole new person, i tryed so many diets and pills it was shocking..nothing worked, i hated all the women who said '' if i can do it you can too''... But now i know its true .. It really can happen.. You can start a whole new life and its so amazing..thank you all!!
