On My Way Towards a Healthier Life

I joined Sparkpeople on January 19, 2009 at the weight of 178 after losing 40 pounds and losing momentum. I had lost another 40 pounds after I joined and am getting healthier every day which was my main reason for losing weight. I love the motivation I've been getting from all the different features of this site but I really enjoy my teams and challenges so I finally managed to create a spark page! At the end of August I got really sick with bronchitis/pneumonia and couldn't workout for 7 weeks ...
I joined Sparkpeople on January 19, 2009 at the weight of 178 after losing 40 pounds and losing momentum. I had lost another 40 pounds after I joined and am getting healthier every day which was my main reason for losing weight. I love the motivation I've been getting from all the different features of this site but I really enjoy my teams and challenges so I finally managed to create a spark page! At the end of August I got really sick with bronchitis/pneumonia and couldn't workout for 7 weeks and ate totally different and gained about 15 pounds. I really struggled with those pounds since then and several family birthdays in the Fall and a big 40th anniversary trip to Hawaii and too many parties were always setting me back. After postponing my doctor appointment and blood work for 6 months which I shouldn't have done I found out at my visit yesterday that my thyroid has gotten slower again and could have been a major factor in my weight gain as well as my cholesterol and BP going back up. I am on stronger meds now and am planning on moving this tracker back down but right now my weight is a disappointment to everyone! I am definitely getting my medical tests and visits done on time from now on!! Hope my commitment will still inspire you rather than discourage you - I will succeed with Spark! Have a great, sparky day teams!
