I started with the SparkDiet in 2007 after having my second child and feeling dowdy and unattractive, wearing a size 12. I was trying to squeeze into my old pants that were size 8 and was extremely unhappy. In 2008, I found some success through this website, but fell off the wagon after getting a job and got lazy. I went right back up to a size 12 again. In September 2010, three people asked me when I was due to have my baby. I wasn't pregnant!! It was time to lose the weight.

That same month, I started back with the SparkDiet and have continued to this day. I began the diet at about 155-160 lbs., size 12 pants, size L in shirts. Today, I do not know my weight, but I am wearing a size 2 in pants, and a S in shirts. I have found solace in running. I feel that this is my forté, and if I continue, I will not fail.

I try to stay somewhere around 1200-1300 calories a day. I DO NOT abstain from dairy, sugar, breads, pastas. I let myself have everything I used to eat. I do avoid red meats, pork, and fried foods, but that is it. I just try to keep it under 1300 and I am okay with whatever. I even eat candy or have a light beer on occasion. Really!

I am goal-oriented, something that has come with relentless studying, endless classes, volunteer work, and thankless sales jobs. I expect for myself to be successful, therefore I WILL BE! I simply cannot fail. I think that this is why I have been FAR more successful with weight loss this go around. :)

    You have done wonderful and I applaud you! I must ask, how did you pick up a regular running habit? I have tried the C25K program and don't really like the set up. I have recently started on my treadmill again and have been walking about 3 minutes the jogging 1 to 2 minutes in intervals. What was your strategy? I really want to be able to "go for a run" not a walk/jog. You have done so great and are unbelievable to work two jobs, go to school, and raise a family. emoticon
