I joined SparkPeople the last week of 2008 and I am ready to make 2009 a great year! I am a female who has recently graduated from school, moved to a new city, gotten a new job, and gained 23 pounds, to make me 177 pounds! I have struggled with weight my entire life and I am embarrassed and in denial I weigh this much again. I hate to have my picture taken now and I am not living my life. I want to live my life again!

I will loose the weight I regained and another 22 pounds to be 132 pounds. I want to do so by summer before "the family photo" is taken. Any support is much appreciated.

“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness, concerning all acts of initiative (and creation). There is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favour all manner of unforseen incidents and meetings and material assistance which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin now.”

Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

    Hey, we haven't heard from you in a while. Is everything ok? I know you had a bad week the last time you posted in the 4th of July Challenge, but I hope you come back and finish the last 3 weeks. We've missed you.

    Hey! Soo good to hear from you this morning! I was a little surprised with my weigh in this morning - I haven't done well getting to the gym this week and have been hitting the high end of my calorie range with the exception of yesterday - so either my loss is water weight or I haven't been eating enough calories when I do workout - every week seems like a guessing game.....I am learning though. I hope things are going well for you and you did well on your 10K! Happy Friday - have a great weekend!
