I am doing it again!!!

Well I am here because I want to lose weight....Big surprise. First off, weight has always been an issue for me...since I was very young....Though looking back at pictures of me, I was never really as fat as I thought I was, but being known as the "fat" sister, tweaks with the brain...And since I was young I have been on a "diet" of some kind or another...If it's out there I have tried it.

I started this whole journey about 5 years ago...first I got myself out of the house and off ...

I started this whole journey about 5 years ago...first I got myself out of the house and off of the couch with Belly Dancing...then I did the South Beach diet...That worked for a bit, I lost about 40 pounds(I was just over 300 pounds at that time)...then I gained a bit back and really wasn't focused.

Then I heard about Spark People 2 and 1/2 years ago....and started my journey to a healthier me....and took the "diet" word out of my vocabulary. I got all the way down to 203 pounds...then I met the love of my life...and I am very happy...but, I put on about 20 this last year(too much going out and not watching what I ate)

So now I am refocused and want to take off what I have gained and get to the goal weight I set when I first started Spark People...
Much Luv and Belly Kisses,
Lana

I joined your group last night. I am brand new to SP also. I LOVE bellydance, especially Tribal. I am inspired by Rachel Brice and Zoe Jakes as well as Sharon Kihara. I am just a beginner and starting to take classes but I would love to dance professionally some day but my weight seems to hold me back.

Thanks for the words of encouragement. I love all things belly dance. I just wish there was less of me when I dance. emoticon
