Still on my journey...

Hi! My name is Diane and I'm a teacher from Wisconsin with 40 pounds to lose. I look forward to working with others to achieve my goals and help you achieve yours.

I originally joined this site in 2008 when I was at my most difficult point. It actually helped me through many decisions. In June 2009 I had gastric bypass surgery. I know many people may disagree with this choice but my health was deteriorating rapidly. My doctor suggested the surgery as a way to get some weight ...
Hi! My name is Diane and I'm a teacher from Wisconsin with 40 pounds to lose. I look forward to working with others to achieve my goals and help you achieve yours.

I originally joined this site in 2008 when I was at my most difficult point. It actually helped me through many decisions. In June 2009 I had gastric bypass surgery. I know many people may disagree with this choice but my health was deteriorating rapidly. My doctor suggested the surgery as a way to get some weight off fast. I have lost over 100 pounds so far. For me, it was a great tool.

Still I would like to lose 60 more and have been at the same weight for almost a year. I remember how much I enjoyed reading other people's posts here and how much inspiration it gave me.

This past year I let my work take over my life. I love my job but it became too much. I have tried to cut back significantly on the extra time but it has been a struggle. It's time to make me my primary concern. That will be key to me achieving my final goals.

Hallo There!
How great to hear from you again! Sleeping enough is a good thing, it helps with weight too...Spark is here to help us, a tool, not something to feel bad about. And it is always here when we need it.
How will it be possible for you to work less hard? I think you can't help yourself investing in the lives of those children. Summer is only 3 seasons away! Almost there!

I am so happy that you had a great time over there! Don't worry, Spark is always here when we get back. Have to say that I enjoy sharing your adventures. When is school starting again? Hope you have a couple of days to just get things sorted out and acclimatise a bit before the new school year.
My mom likes history too. So do I, but it is not my first love. I love wildlife and nature, (Biology) more.
Bless you!
