2017 SW: 245.4

Update 2/17/16: My doctor said it's time to start talking about surgical options. I begged for 3 months to change her mind.....

02/16/2016: 270.4
03/16/2016: 250.6
04/16/2016: 239.2
05/16/2016: 229.4 (GOAL 230.4 = 40 pounds in 3 months) Made it!!

2016 Net Loss: 25 lbs

Update 1/5/15: After a year of irritating health problems and hubby getting some potentially scary news from the Doctor, we are ready to commit to being healthy. I managed to lose 20 pounds last year, so I am starting this year at 249, though I'm not really focused on weight, but on health (Blood Sugar, Blood Pressure, and Cholesterol), hoping to fix that through a healthier diet and dusting off my treadmill.

Update 1/2/14: Staring Again? at 269 pounds.

Update 6/18/12: I'm one year post partum, and I keep gaining weight! When I got on the scale and saw that I gained 5 more pounds I realized that I was going to gain it all back unless I did something. I know that with my PCOS and insulin resistance the heavier I get the fast I gain weight and the harder it is to lose.

Update 9/14/11: Baby Avery came on 6/12/11 and is such a good baby! I gained alot more with my pregnancy than I intended, but the biggest problem was the weight I gained post partum! My HW was 242, but I got down to 217. I am now back up to 236.6.

Update 11/14/10: The weight loss plans are on hold, due to a major surprise pregnancy. Estimated Due Date: 6/17/11 My Weight loss ticker is changed to reflect the amount that I want to gain. PPW 204, max weight 219! (As I've already reached that 15 pounds, am adding another 10 pounds to ticker!)

2010: I've been at Spark for almost 4 years! I lost 83 pounds in 2006, gained it back in 2007, consulted with a DR. in '08 and took 45 pounds back off.

For the first 10 months of 2009 I gained and lost the same 5-10 pounds. And ended the year about 10 pounds down.

Thus far in '10, I'm down an additional 20 pounds. I would like to reach 169 before my next Dr.'s Appt. in November.

And I would like to reach my Final Goal of 143 pounds by my 5th spark anniversary 6/1/11
