This was me at my lowest weight my first go round. Heck, I'd be happy there, but if I'm gonna go for it, I'm gonna go all out.

It's never too late to be what I might have been.

I started out "dieting" several years ago. I started at 277 and lost down to 170 within a year. Then I let circumstances that I couldn't control affect what I could control. My eating. I began eating unhealthy again and have gained back 95 lbs. that I had lost. I'm tired both mentally and physically, and I want the energy back that I had before. So- I'm going for it again. I'm scared that because I don't want this as badly as I did the first time that I may fail, but that's why I'm here. ...

Accountability and encouragement were vital to my success the first time, so I'm gonna need lots of it!

My Goals:
My goal is to become physically healthy so that I can feel healthier mentally.

My Program:
I am reducing my portions and substituting low fat low cal options for the higher fat and calorie foods that I love.

Personal Information:
My name is Jeannie and I'm from central Virginia. I'm a SAHM to three beautiful girls.

Other Information:
The most important thing I would want anyone to know about me is that I am a Christian. I have given God control of many areas of my life and am only now turning over my health and body to Him. In order to do that, I have to eat in a manner which glorifies HIm. Needless to say, that isn't how I had been eating.

I saw your page and could totally relate to what you've been through losing weight and gaining some back since I've been there. Hang in there. We've done it once I'm sure we can do it again.

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!! =D

hello, my jeannie! *^.^* sorry it's been FOREVER since i've responded to u or actually ANYONE on spark ^_^". i've either been so busy or so lazy (probly the latter =/), so i've fallen WAYYY behind on getting back to ppl. hope u'll forgive me!

thanks for the vote of confidence (as always =P) in regards to me losing those last 10lbs before the hubby returns. i FINALLY lost a decent amount of weight this last week (2.5lbs) after standing still and fluctuating over the last few weeks. i was getting so frustrated, especially w/ knowing i was running out of time to shed those pounds. i'm so glad i only added an extra 15lbs to lose on top of my initial goal 'cuz goodness knows if i tried to lose anymore than that i'd probly have been sorely disappointed ^_^".

newayz! sorry to have dragged on and on about myself-- how are YOU doing? it's been so long since we've had a nice long "rambling" conversation =). any plans for halloween? it's almost over on this end of the world, but i know it's just beginning for u =P. hope u have fun w/ whatever u have planned!

take kare, sweetie, and pls let me know how u've been when u can. i've missed u! *HUGGLES*

fear not! your sharon is here, LoL =D. i'm so sorry i wasn't able to get back to u sooner. this last week has been absolutely horrible for me. i'm struggling w/ a lot in my personal life right now, so i'm trying to kinda distance myself from everything in hopes of getting myself together ^_^". hopefully next week will be MUCH better. *fingers crossed*

i'm really glad you're back on SP, and i'm confident you'll be able to get back in the swing of things in no time =). i know i've kinda been slacking w/ my walking and eating as of late, so i need to kick my butt back into gear as well. wanna take turns kicking each other's butts? LoL =P

today i finally took the plunge and got my haircut for the first time since last december (O_o)! i think it came out pretty well, considering how freakin' thin my hair is =/. i'm starting to realize that the only way i'm gonna get that full-head-of-hair-look is to invest in a blow dryer, a round brush, and some sort of volumizer ^_^". i really didn't think my hair was THAT thin until i sat in the salon chair and those ever "flattering" studio lights were aimed right at my head. talk about a huge wake-up call! gawd, i hope i don't need to wear wigs by the time i'm 30... ugh!

newayz! there's really nothing else that interesting to report on at the moment. maybe when i've cleared my head a bit more, i'll be back to my rambling self =P. thanks for checkin' in, sweetie, and again it's so good to have you back! =D (btw, i love ur new pic! *^.^*) talk more w/ u laterz! muahz!~!! ♥

well so much for me being better at replying, LoL! i guess if we both can admit that we have our lazy moments, we shouldn't be too offended by each other's late responses, right? hehee... (how's that for a weak attempt to excuse my tardiness? LoL =P)

newayz! i feel u on the whole monthly witch. ever since i got the iud put in, she doesn't seem to ever want to leave! it's more like she goes away for 9 to 10 days and then returns for the other 20, so consider urself lucky (at least in comparison to me ^_^"). mind if i join u on the whole menopause wishing? LoL

gosh, i can't imagine all the different germs our kids become exposed to at school. that must've been horrifying to have your child have 6 cases of strep and scarlett fever the FIRST YEAR (O_o)! my son somehow wound up w/ hand-foot-mouth disease 2mos ago, and all he was exposed to in that time were shopping carts! i suppose it helps build up their immune system, tho, yea? still sucks to watch them go thru it, tho =/.

wow! u guys sure do have a lot of books. i used to read a lot, too, and on occasions still do altho most of my more recent books fall under the "self-help" category. i sure hope no one sees my bookshelf and starts to wonder if i have
some serious issues, LoL.

nehowz! i agree w/ ur decision to maybe hold off on going gung-ho w/ the whole weight-loss bit for now. sounds like u've got a lot more important things to worry about for the time being, but just know that i'll be here to support u when u're ready to hop back on track =). i just reached my initial end of year goal of losing 50lbs, so now i've upped it to 65lbs. here's hoping i'll be able to reach it in time =).

it was great hearing from u, jeannie. keep in touch when u can! *^.^*
