Hi everyone and WELCOME to my spark page!! I've been a member here for years but just re-started my journey in April-ish 2009.

FIRST DEMON:
I had a history of drug abuse... during which my weight dropped from the 115# i had always maintained, to 83lbs ----- (i am 5') The 83# was SICKENING to see IMHO... Not pretty, just very sickly skinny. When I got clean, 5+ years ago, I DOUBLED that 83lbs and ending that first, struggling year weighing in at about 168lbs. Because I was getting my addiction under control I did not sweat it much - Kinda a "first things first" mentality..

The weight, however, continued to pile on... The rate slowed, somewhat.. But a couple lbs a month adds up after a yr or two... That was part of my motivation to get off of it... I tapered down to about 20mg and cold-turkey'd -- It was sheer hell getting thru the physical wd's -- then the mental (ugh) Back to the weight issue tho - within 10mos or so after my detox, I went back to my goal weight.... NO EFFORT!! (as many said I would)

Maintained at a size 2/4 at about 112# for a couple yrs... I was sure that my metabolism was back to normal and unfortunately, I took that as my cue, and I stopped tracking; exercising; etc (dumb) But i did maintain without issues.

SECOND DEMON: I then took the plunge October 09, 2008 and quit smoking... I wasn't really concerned about gaining - I immediately began drinking tons of tea to replace my cigs - not FOOD so I had no worries - right, WRONG!! Stopping smoking inevitably affects your metabolism and I should've been ahead of the game.... I was not. I gained about 20# in the first 6mos of being smoke free. I was back over 130 or so and over the healthy BMI range.

So I am back at Spark to track my calories and began an exercise program :)

Thanks to this site and my determination, i met my goals before, and I'll meet em again!!!!!!!!

04/09 - changed all pics to CURRENT goals - No need to dwell on the size 2-4 i was at a few months ago - I am beginning a new regimen effective NOW so lets look at he PRESENT!!

05/14/09 - Measurements are not off by much, but I may have been in the wrong places... I did, however - lose 4# -- I got into my 27 Silvers last week so i knew it was time to weigh/measure :) WOOT!! Last weigh in was 04/29 @ 129 Current weight - 125.5

ALSO - Got my workout room done -- I'll get pics and post em!! LUV IT THO!! I worked out in it this AM and got such a better work out!! More room to PUNCH - KICK - JAM!!! LOL

05/18/09 - Got my F6 and wanted to note:
Standing - 68-70 Average Exercising HR - 128 Max Exercising HR - 151 (TBL Cardio Max 1-2-3 & Cool down

5/19/09 Average 134 Max 156 (Turbo Jam Cardio Party Remix)

05/27/09 - LUV'g the ZUMBA now!!! Got my HR over 200 for a fraction of a second, but overall I keep it higher and burn DOUBLE the calories compared to Turbo Jam!! Nicolette and I are hitting another class tonight.... CAN'T WAIT!!!

Weighed in Thursday September 17 and to my surprise I lost another 3lbs since my GW!! I am down to 109.7!! I cut my exercise back this past week - Time to MAINTAIN baby!!!

10/10/09 - Decided to get back on the ball... Had a couple "not so dedicated" weeks and really need to get back on track. Like drug addiction I found the maintaining part is MUCH harder than the actual quit/wd/etc. In other words it's easy to GET CLEAN, but a MF'r to STAY that way!! I've found food issues the same way....I am, however, glad I am recognizing this now... and now after I gained back everything I worked for.

03/26/11 - Been back to tracking diligently for a week now Been back to working out diligently for a couple months, but when u aren't eating right, doesn't much matter if you are eating BAAAD!! Back now tho to lost this 10 that I keep finding :)

THANK YOU SPARK PEOPLE for making this site available!!! IDK what I'd do without it!!

01/03/13 - Back up to 130# grrr!! Working hard to get it back!! :) 2012 was my worst work out year since 08!! Gotta make 2013 better!!
