Back to healthy

I was a regular sparker and then fell off the wagon...big time. I gained weight and went up to 187! I'm only 4'11". My sister decided to have weight loss surgery. I didn't want to be the fat sister so I got off my ass and began eating right and exercising. I started C25K on January 30th 2012. I ran my first 5K on 1 April. I am now addicted to running. I have lost 40 lbs since October 2011. My sister is a little smaller than me. But I am proud of all my accomplishments. Thanks to her ...

I worked hard for it and will take being the fatter sister. LOL. I don't knock her for having her surgery. We all do what we feel we need to do. She was considerably bigger than me.

Yes, teaching is horrible for trying to stick to a weight loss plan! We can't "pee" when we need to.... so we shy away from drinking our water, etc. I too have the classroom restrictions for break time, but I eat in the classroom. My mini meals are portable, high nutrition, equal ratio of carbs-to-protein, and easily consumed while I'm in the room with the kids. Go to CarbEssentials.net to see some really great products. They ship, and probably internationally. Even if they don't,they are products that one can find at body building competitions and body building nutrition outlets. Keep on running, baby! You've found "the ticket"!

Hey Looking AWESOME!!! I wondered if you were still in Japan- looks like you've moved on in the world! I too have been up and am on the way back down- currently at 149 at 5'2". I'd really like to get in the mid 130's by september. As long as I eat mini meals every 2 hours and they are equal protein-to-carbs, and not exceeding 1200 calories.... and IF I exercise.... then it seems to work. It's easier to do in the summer than during the school year, so I'm on a roll for now...
Keep on Running! emoticon emoticon n
