I have not be on here lately but I want to come back. As of July 22, 2015 I have lost a total of 55 lbs and I feel great. I am now under 200 lbs and weight less now then I did in high school. Some people might say that is not great, but for me it is. Those people do not know how big people feel when that get to that point, but it feels great.

I have proved to myself that I can do this by keep track of what I eat on Spark and just to get up and move even if it is just to walk. I have stopped drinking soda's this will be my 4th year of that. I find that I got help from a friend because she become my health coach and showed me medifast which jump started me. But I am now back to eating regular food and still losing weight. I also find myself not wanting fried food so much anymore in fact it made me sick when I do eat it now. If I can lose weight anyone can because I love food, but I do not let food run my life anymore. So for everyone we can do this.

I guess it is about time to update my info here. I am 45 with 3 kids, and 3 step kids. I have be big all my life and I wanted to get health and get off all my meds. My teenage daughter is big and I want her to know that I can lose weight then she can. Will I mean if I can then anyone can, because I had failed at it so many times before. I like Spark People and I helped her to go to Spark Teen.. I also do not want my little boy to be big and show him the health ways to eat also. Spark People has helped me alot, but I also add Medifast to my program. Since add Medifast I have lost a total of 45 lbs and still going. At work that start the Biggest Loser Contest and that also help kick start me. So far I am winning the contest we have two more weeks to go. On top of that I also started one at home. I can now get into a size 16 jeans from 24 jeans and it is a great feeling. I can remember growing up and how people at school would make fun of me. I talk to my kids and I tell them I do not want them to go thru what I did. I grow up in a small town where if you blinked you would miss it. I know my kids are growing up in a city and that people look at you differant now, but still there are some people do not. I know people look at our family funning when we go out because we are all big. I want my kids to have a better chance in life then I did growing up. I want to be here to see my kids make it in life and become what that what to become. I very proud of my kids and I know they will go far. But I always tell them that there are still those people out there and that we have to be the bigger person then them and show everyone with respected even when you know they do not need it. It is Gods place to judge them not us and when we standed before God we can tell him that we did not judge them like they are so many people, because it is not only us they are judging but everyone they come in contact with. I tell my kids it comes a time in your life that you must take a stands for yourself and your health and I think I have done that. I also ask do you want to take shot for you sugar like me, because I hate and i am taking a stand to over come that and to be healthy for myself and them.

THANK YOU GOD for all you have shown me. And thank you Spark People with all the people you have help come in contact with and the help also.


I'm 43 with 3 kids I what to lose weight to be here for my kids. I have been big all my life. I have lost weight but have gained it back, but for some reason I just can't get back in there to lose weight. I found this web site hope I could find people to encorage me to lose weight and to start eating right. Just not for me but for my kids. And I want my 12 year old and 4 year old to start eating right too. Sometime I just need someone to talk to when I want to eat wrong. So today is April 26, 2012 and it is time to get started.

July 17, 2014: I have just come back to SparkPeople since I last posted. I was having alot issues, but now I am ready to do this. I need to lose my weight because of my health and my kids. I would love to be around a long time to see my kids do what they are dreaming of do in their lives. I want to show my kids that by eating healthy will been the best thing they can do for their life. And I do not want them to go thur things that I have been thur. I love my kids and would like to be there for them and every way. My 14 year daughter is over weight and I have started a Sparkteen page for her too. I want her to lose weight with me so that we both can be healthy. My 6 year son is not over weight and I do not want him to become that way. So want to show them that we can be healthy together. I know this is goint to be a hard road for me. I did to get my blood sugar uncontrol as well. I anyone has any advise for me I would love to hear from me. I will also like to have alot of people standing behind me and to be there is I need advice or chart with too. I have trouble with over eating when I am sad, mad, and when it is around the time my mom and dad past away. Thanky you for reading what I have to post.
