117 lbs. down and ?? lbs. to go........

On April 22, 2006 I joined LA Weight Loss and began my journey to a healthier lifestyle. I weighed in at 262 lbs. That is a lot of weight to carry around and it is very bad on the heart. I got tired of waking up in the middle of the night thinking "Is that my heart... Am I having a heart attack?" I wasn't looking to join a weight loss program I was happy with myself. I didn't care. Because, I didn't think I was meant to be thin. I was wrong! I also thought I would never be the one to say I ...
On April 22, 2006 I joined LA Weight Loss and began my journey to a healthier lifestyle. I weighed in at 262 lbs. That is a lot of weight to carry around and it is very bad on the heart. I got tired of waking up in the middle of the night thinking "Is that my heart... Am I having a heart attack?" I wasn't looking to join a weight loss program I was happy with myself. I didn't care. Because, I didn't think I was meant to be thin. I was wrong! I also thought I would never be the one to say I love to exercise. I am active all the time. Things that also inspired me to get healthy were shows like the Biggest Loser. I actually sent in a 5 min. DVD to audition for the show and I went to Kansas City, Missouri to do a live audition. They obviously didn't pick me, but what they had to say furthered my need and want for weight loss. It has been 7 years since I have been on a health plan and I feel great. One of my friends told me about SparksPeople.Com back in April 2007 I am just now using it to its fullest potential. I've been stuck for awhile in the 140's and I have been reminded that slow is the way to go for the weight to stay off and to never give up on exercise. Anyway, if you want to know anything else, just ask and I shall tell. Good luck in your journey toward getting healthy! Always, The Cookie Monster or Ex-Cookie Monster (depending on the week) :)
