Here today I am back at 262lbs and miserable. Today I once again commit to becoming a healthier me. Today is the last time I will write that I have failed at this. I am committing today to find the healthier me.

I am committing today to find the healthier me.

Update: Below you will see what I wrote on January 2nd of this year and here is where I am today (Septmber 5). As of today I weight 217lbs. Doing the math I have lost 47lbs in 7 months!!! I have done so while going to school full-time and working full-time. This just makes me realize that I CAN do this! I'm excited to continue this journey and start 2013 as a healthier me.

Join me in my journey to a healthy weight! Losing weight isn't fun but it is totally worth it.

Original Intro below:

Hi! My name is Brandi, I am 26 and from Southern Illinois. I am currently working full-time and going to school full-time working on my second bachelors. My life is pretty busy but I have decided that I need to work on getting healthy!

I currently weigh 264lbs.... just typing that makes me cringe! How could I become that overweight?! I have been yo-yo dieting since I was 16 and just can not seem to keep the weight off. In the past I have lost 50-60lbs just to gain it back plus more in less than a year. I have joined Sparks people with the hopes that having a community behind weight loss will keep me motivated.


I look forward to getting to know new people on Sparkpeople and learning different methods of losing weight and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
