CLAYRATHKE's SparkPage

It's my 2-year anniversary with SparkPeople and time to update the SparkPage.

Twice within the last year I got within 1 pound of goal weight, but then life got in the way and I slacked off. I'm in danger of getting all the way back to my starting weight, which is disheartening.

I decided to try a Biggest Loser challenge to shake things up. So far, not much weight loss, but I am definitely improving my daily exercise level. Hopefully the weight will come back off soon. ...

From March 30, 2014:
Decided to create my Spark Page to celebrate my 1 year anniversary with SparkPeople.

I'm a 50 year old mom, currently living in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. I've lived here for nearly 18 years and I love it.

I was thin for my entire life until after the birth of my son 16 years ago. I became a stay at home mom and put on one to two pounds per year until I reached 160. That's when I decided that it had to stop.

After one year with SparkPeople, I'm within 4 pounds of my goal weight of 142. It was much harder to keep the pounds off than I ever imagined! I seem to lose three pounds and then plateau for weeks before making a little progress again.

I've started exercising every day for at least 30 minutes, and that seems to be helping break the latest plateau.

People will hate you, rate you, shake you and break you.
But how strong you stand is what makes you.

Your biggest challenge isn't someone else. It's the ache in your lungs,
and the burning in your legs, and the voice inside you
that yells "can't"....but you don't listen. You just push harder,
and then you hear that voice whisper "can"..
and you discover that the person you thought you were
is no match for the one you really are.

emoticon emoticon You can do it, too!! emoticon emoticon
