Food is my fuel, not my friend.

I started Spark People "for real" in 12/2009, tracking my food and exercise. I went from 228 (BMI 38) down to 180, then I maintained in the 175-180 (BMI 29-30) range for over a year without tracking much, just weighing myself once a week or so to keep things in check. I was glad to know that I could eat "normal" food and maintain that weight.

My goal was to go from the Obese category on BMI to the Overweight category. When I started out at 228, I was sad to see that I had to go to "page 2" of the NHLBI BMI chart web page to get to my weight.

Now in July 2012, I am starting on my goal to get down into the Normal BMI range, which for me means a goal of getting under 150 pounds.

I am a bit afraid of reaching my goal weight- I remember being that weight and still thinking I was fat! But I will try my best to concentrate on my health and energy levels improving!
