Below, you will find out about my journey :)

Hey Fellow Sparkers!
So it all began in January 2, 2010. I weighed in at a grotesque 214 pounds. It was my senior year of high school and I had a graduation coming up that following year. I needed to do something or I wasn't going to fit in that beautiful red dress in the months to come! So, on January 2nd I challenged my Dad to "Weight Wars".

Hey Fellow Sparkers!
So it all began in January 2, 2010. I weighed in at a grotesque 214 pounds. It was my senior year of high school and I had a graduation coming up that following year. I needed to do something or I wasn't going to fit in that beautiful red dress in the months to come! So, on January 2nd I challenged my Dad to "Weight Wars". He, like myself, had extra weight on so we decided to challenge each other to an ongoing weekly weigh-in to see who lost the most weight that week. Who ever lost the least (In percentage of their original body weight) lost the weekly challenge and the winner was allowed to make the loser do something of their choice. It could of been things like shovel the driveway, do the supper dishes, clean the bathroom, ect. One week I made my Dad grow a beard! Just because he hates a beard on himself lol.. That was an eventful week. None the less, this challenge with my Dad was what made me stick to my guns along with my mother keeping me on track with what I was eating and walking 8 km's with me every evening. It was a great help.
When May 2010 rolled around, the day of my grad, I was 180 lbs and I looked wonderful in my dress. I felt so good that day. It was so nice to have a lot of the weight off by then and I felt so good about myself.
By the end of Summer 2010 I can remember my lowest weight being 161.5 lbs. I was just a mere 11.5 lbs away from my goal! Wow! And then, I tripped.
From Summer 2010 to winter 2011 I found myself in the 170 lbs range. That wasn't too bad, but I had kind of put my weight loss on hold. Then, in April 2011, I moved in with my boyfriend eeek! I love living with my man but of course, I got comfortable! And before I knew it, I found myself in March 2012 at 186.5 lbs. I gained 25 pounds. How silly and foolish am I! I was so close!
But I remember how good I felt, how I looked in clothes and how good I felt about myself and the confidence I had and the will power. I'm not done yet. I'm getting this weight off and I don't care how long it takes me. I want it off by the end of Summer 2012 but if that don't happen, I will not consider myself a failure. I will just extend my goal date. I do not want to gain weight from here on out, I will do nothing but lose. I want to feel good again and feel sexy like I used to. I'm done with being over weight. I want to get to 150 and stick with it. I need to be stricter on myself and never give up on myself.
So, i'm going to stick with SparkPeople from here on out and see where the weight loss road takes me, again. I'm ready and will not give up this time. I want this too bad to give up.
So that's my journey so far SparkPeople :) I'll keep you all updated. Thanks for visiting my page!
