The Incredible Shrinking Woman!

Hi! I am a mother of 3. I am hoping to lose about 70 lbs!

I started this journey looking in the mirror and not recognizing myself. I hated looking at myself, hated getting dressed. I never put on makeup or even cared what I looked like. I figured I was ugly and fat all ready and no make up in the world would help me. I slowly put on weight after having each of my 3 beautiful children and a little before having them.

Hi! I am a mother of 3. I am hoping to lose about 70 lbs!

I started this journey looking in the mirror and not recognizing myself. I hated looking at myself, hated getting dressed. I never put on makeup or even cared what I looked like. I figured I was ugly and fat all ready and no make up in the world would help me. I slowly put on weight after having each of my 3 beautiful children and a little before having them.

I was always active as a teenager and loved sports.
I have never been bone thin, but I was never large either. As I got older I let life get in the way my love of sports. I slowly stopped playing. Weight started to come on.

During this time I ate whatever I wanted not having a care of what I was putting in my body. I can honestly say I easily consumed 5000 calories in any given day. I hate hotwings maybe 3 times a week, Mc Donalds 4 times a week. I always complained I didnt have time to cook. I wasn't ever satisfied until I felt completely stuffed! I mean completely stuffed!

March 12, 2009 Finally an opportunity at work came to start Weight Watchers. I decided to join. I was the Valedictorian of the class. I learned so much about nutrition, portion control, and just life in general. So determined and so focused. I couldn't stand the skin I was in and made a decision to change. I started working out right away. Funny, I had free gym membership with my health insurance and NEVER used it! Plus the gym is across the street from me!

I stumbeled upon spark people because I was afraid Weight Watchers was not giving me enough daily calories and I wanted to track my food for free. I was getting enough calories. I signed up and fell in love with it!


I don't count weight watchers points anymore, but the stuff I learned still sticks with me. I try to track my food on sparkpeople. I try and Eat Clean most of the time,that means no overly processed foods. I believe everything in moderation so if I want cheesecake, I have it. Just a little bit, and I workout to make up for it.

June 7, 2010... I have met my goal which really was just to loose a few lbs. Although, I always wanted to loose this much, I never really thought I could. Now I have lost 80 lbs and I really don't care about the weight anymore. I really only care about that darn mother's apron I have on my lower tummy. I think it is about 20 more pounds, I don't know. I am not going to stress myself out over it, but I will continue to exercise and eat right until it is gone!

emoticon you're really ambitious! Are you running both full marathons? I'm gearing up for the A1A half marathon, trying to get in enough miles.

Good luck to you! emoticon
