In the first 17 weeks of 2006 I lost 17 pounds with SparkPeople. My main motivator was an upcoming vacation in Hawaii and I reached my goal weight just a week before the trip! I never knew healthy weight loss could be so simple. Not easy, but simple.
I also have to give credit to the online community here for helping me to reach my goals. The support, accountability, motivation and inspiration I've received here is priceless!

01/03/06: 134 Starting Weight
01/31/06: 128 1st Month
02/28/06: 126 2nd Month
03/31/06: 122 3rd Month
04/30/06: 118 4th Month
05/04/06: 117 (22% BF) Goal Met!

I started running in October 2006 after standing as a spectator at the finish line of a Half Marathon. Less than a year later I crossed that same finish line as a Half Marathoner.

2010 Update: It took awhile to get there, but in April 2009 I ran my first marathon. Less than a year later I finished marathon number 6, including an ultramarathon.

2017 Update: I started nursing school in 2014. I'll be graduating with my BSN this May. While it's been harder to maintain my weight, I'm now within 10 pounds of my goal weight. I'm still running...

    Hi Ivette! I've been keeping a quiet eye on you on FB and thought I'd drop in here and let you know how much you inspire me. I think back to when we all had about the same amount to lose and you have done so well!! You go, girl!
