I've never been entirely thin since I was too young to remember. At my peak, I was 110 pounds overweight. At only 5 feet tall, I pretty much looked and felt like a basketball. Last year I decided to take extreme measures to lose weight. And, lose weight I did. But not the healthy way. I was just shy of my goal weight until I realized that I'd rather stay alive and be fat than leave my son without a mother. I have gained 50 pounds back since that day. I know darn well how to lose it the right way.....but now it's all about finding the motivation. My aching, aging body should be enough to inspire me. I have silly reasons why I think I should just stay this way but.......Something inspired me to join this site again. I hope I can find the motivation I need!

Member Since: 9/7/2012

My Goals:
1. To feel for the first time being entirely fit and healthy.
2. To stay that way.

My Program:
Write things down! Put notes and pictures everywhere! It's so easy to get consumed being busy. "Out of site, out of mind." I need to keep my reminders visable to stay motivated. I also need my family to give me loving encouragement, and not feel like they are being insulting. Mostly, if I miss a day or two of sticking strickly to my goals,....Don't quit! Pick it back up!

Personal Information:
After the recent loss of my husband and recovery from Bulemia and struggling with alcohol, I decide to stick with a method of weight loss that has worked wonders for me in the past. As I said in my intruduction text, I know how to lose weight. And of course, different things work for different people. When I joined Sparkpeople a few years back, I shared my means of success on the message boards and was discouraged by the remarks of some people. But I hope that this time around, I could share with someone, something that I swear by. And in turn, encourage another spark friend to encourage me.

Other Information:
About me....I'm 33, but was born an old fart. I'm as boring as they come. I enjoy cooking, camping, fishing, swimming, drawing, gardening, crafts, crochet, good old-fashioned hard work, primative living, etc. Anything 'hands on' and constructive. Things that you have something to show for your time.... No manicures, malls, facebook, etc. I believe in REAL life.
