CW: 221.6, March 2013
Starting clothing sizes--22 pants & dresses, one 24, 3X shirts
Current clothing sizes--18 pants, XL shirts
Pounds Lost: 27
Goal Weight: 155
Height: 5'6"

Current Plan:
Monitor eating with SparkPeople nutrition calculator
Slowly add back healthy habits--more fruits & vegetables, 8-16 glasses of water, physical activity at least 3x a week.

Life Update:
Health can be such a journey!
In 2009, I lost 59 pounds from a high of 249 down to 190.
Right when I was feeling good & athletic, I tore my ACL (Sept 2010).
Limited activity after my surgery & emotional eating took me up to 220 by December of 2011.
I did a 12 week program through my gym from December 2011 to March 2012, during which I lost 20 pounds.
I'd barely hit 199 when I discovered I had a uterine tumor. I weighed 215 by the end of the year, when I had to have a hysterectomy.
Since the hysterectomy in early December 2012, I lost & gained back weight, to my current 220ish.
I have gotten out of any regular habit of exercise and haven't even been "trying" with my eating.
So ANYTHING I do will be an improvement.

My Goals:
To have a consistent downward trend on the scale--whether it's 1/2 pound or 2 lbs per week, I just want to be heading down, not up!

My Program:
--Burning approximately 3500+ calories/week through exercise.
--Doing 5-45 minute sessions of heavy cardio a week-
spin class, elliptical machine, long hike, Jillian Michaels DVD, Turbo Jam, etc.
--walking 4 mornings a week (approximately 30 minutes) with a friend.
--I record my intake consistently, trying to fit in the SP guidelines for protein, fat, carbs, and fiber.
--Eating fruits or veggies at every meal, aiming for whole grains.
--Reducing my portion sizes.
--Eating dinner out once a week (twice maximum), and if I do lunch out keeping it to a prescribed amount/menu at Taco Bell or Subway.

    Thanks for your comment! But YOU -- you're really looking fantastic! Interesting to see we're both on the long-term path. Mine has been coming off extremely slowly... took me 2 full years to lose 50 lbs., but I can honestly say my relationship to food has completely changed. I can "go off program" for weeks at a time, feel like like I'm "cheating" and just gorging, eating terrible things, and I end up 0-2 lbs heavier... not too shabby. I just keep getting stalled -- that's the part I need to stop!! Hope you are well!
