I joined spark people on my first journey of losing weight but over the past 8 years of fighting thyroid disease it has taken a toll. I am, now back up to 200 pounds and feeling so sad. My husbands journey in the marines is coming to an end after 20 years and i want us to enjoy our retirement while we are still young. Ready to get these pounds off and fight all my health problems. I am back and ready!!!

Motivation Quotes

"Exercise should be fun, otherwise, you won't be consistent."

"You've got to say, I think that if I keep working at this and want it badly enough I can have it. It's called perseverance."

"I was always looking outside myself for strength and confidence but it comes from within. It is there all the time."

"There isn't a person anywhere that isn't capable of doing
more than he thinks he can."


"The higher your energy level, the more efficient your body. The more efficient your body, the better you feel and the more you will use your talent to produce outstanding results."


Confidence comes not from always being right but from not
fearing to be wrong."

    Things are good girl, great to hear from ya. I am still trying to get into a routine. Right now I have a real hard time finding the time to workout. The only thing keeping me losing is breastfeeding and watching what I eat. But I know that I need to get it in there or else I won't like what I look like with all the extra hangy skin :) How have you been?

    It is good. I am still here offering and getting support. I am not tracking my weight, exercise or food on this site for now- because I am pregnant... yay! How have you been?

    Hi there - thanks for the comment on my page. I have only been a member since 12/30/08. Today is the start of my 3rd week. WOW - You have done SO good. I remember I weighed 217 after the birth of my daughter when I first started to lose weight and last summer I got down to 167 (yes I have gained some back) and so I know how you must feel when I look at where you started and where you are - very proud. I am here because I want to feel that again, and more. I put an end date on my weight loss last time and when I had reached -50 lbs mark, I started to give myself breaks here and there to miss workouts and cheat on my diet and 18 months later I have put back on 30 of what I lost (and had worked hard to lose!). DON'T DO THAT!! Don't make that mistake - don't put an end date, keep it an ongoing lifestyle. Great Job.
