Taking Control

This is me, unedited and for once talking openly about my weight issues.

My name is Ayla. I'm 23, happily married and I live in Canada. I've always had weight issues and I've always been in the "overweight" category. I guess that sort of created a sense of complacency within myself, because I never really considered losing weight, or if I did it was more of a fantasy situation... a "what if I could change this?" type scenerio that would last a little while then pass.

This is me, unedited and for once talking openly about my weight issues.

My name is Ayla. I'm 23, happily married and I live in Canada. I've always had weight issues and I've always been in the "overweight" category. I guess that sort of created a sense of complacency within myself, because I never really considered losing weight, or if I did it was more of a fantasy situation... a "what if I could change this?" type scenerio that would last a little while then pass.

Now my focus is on taking control of my health, my body and my life. I had a epiphany in February 2008. I weighed around 190 at that time and I'm sure the numbers had previously crept dangerously close to the 200 mark at my heaviest. I was unhappy, over tired and FINALLY fed up with it all. A moments consideration of losing weight turned into something that ate away at me, until I found Sparkpeople. My friend Suzy had joined and told me about it. From the second I found this place, I was in love. I am now proud to say that I am addicted to a healthy life style. The energy I have, the way I feel and the way things fit all give me a natural high that nothing else can compare to! I am proud of how far I have come and I know I can make it the rest of the way!

For my personal goal I currently have it set to 135 lbs but ultimately I'll settle for where I feel I look and feel the best. I am 5'7 so, according to a consultation with a personal trainer, anywhere between 120-160 is a healthy bmi for me. Also according to various websites my ideal weight for my height and frame is anywhere from 133-147. So cheer me on SP land! We can do it!

Hi there! not sure if you still use spark or not, but i wanted to (finally) get back to you, a year later, after you left a comment on my page. it was so sweet of you to give me some input, and a Goodie! i set up an account a year ago, posted on a board, then never signed in again. until last week (: i have been faithfully signing in daily, so since i trust myself to utilize the site now i thought it appropriate to say something. i also want to say that that pic of you at the top of your page is absolutely stunning! you have a very unique look, and i totally dig it!
SPXXX (spark hugs!!)

Hey girl,
How are you doing? I'm stopping by all my sparkfriends to say hi.I have been on and off of sp so many times I have lost count, but I am determined not to give up this time.No matter how many times I may slip up I am going to keep trying to eat within my calorie range and get some sort of physical activity in most days of the week. Sorry I missed your call on the weekend.We'll have to get together soon.Miss ya.Take care.
