New Story! A mom who lost the weight and is gaining it back! I was doing great ! lost 75 pounds! and then I plateaued! I got tired ... stuck ... started feeling sorry for myself and now I am trying to find my way again. At 200 pounds I am "starting" a new journey. To stop over eating ... eat healthier, and be better to myself but mostly over eating. I refuse to go back to my other start weight and I am comfortable changing my goals to reflect my new target. A smaller more manageable, attainable 185... and then I will set a new goal, which will eventually lead me to 150. So let''s get started! 10/25/2014 Diagnosed diabetic in May .... It''s been a roller coaster. Getting the doctor to act was difficult leading me to finding a new doctor. I also pushed and got into an Endocronologist which makes me feel better that now I am monitoring my a1c levels plus she got me a nutritionist and diabetic counselor. I''m learning how to eat and watch carbs intake. I am monitoring my levels with a great new tester that links to my phone. I am adding more potassium rich foods and taking a vitamin d3 supplement. I''ve lost 40 pounds since February. I am tracking again ... Not as consistently as before but getting better I look back at how I have taken care of myself and I am disappointed the counselor class really made me feel better though. I''m not alone... It''s not too late ..... And can manage this I am a mother of three active kids all under 8. I started Sparkpeople in February 2008 after turning 34, and tipping the scales at 260. Here is my story.... I had belonged to a gym for 2 years and I went only a handful of times. My girlfriends had and continue to be my biggest champions. Together they made going to the gym "cool"..... and not scary! So finally after 2 years of membership and the best friends in the world there to support me ... I started going more regularly.. THEN .....WE MOVED! What was I going to do??? Well I started to gain .. and gain fast! They always say it is easier to put on the weight and harder to take it off. I at least found a house close to the gym knowing I would need to live close or I would find excuses to skip. But I still wasn''t getting any results. So for my birthday... my one girlfriend came down to the new house for the weekend. She told me of a FREE website that would educate me, support me... and make me accountable. She likened it to facebook.. bcuz at the time you couldn''t pry my fingers loose from the computer... I was always on facebook. So ,sure, I thought let me check it out! I have been online everyday since! I never miss a chance to spin the wheel... I log my food every day!! every ounce... ok some days not every ounce but pretty darn close! I eat really foods... I exercise really hard... I live the life of a thin person and one day my body will reflect those choices. It''s working great so far... 62.4 pounds!! in 7 months! my goal is 150 ... lean muscles. I plan to be there by my next birthday ... but if I reach goal early you won''t hear me complain.

"You build on failure. You use it as a stepping stone. Close the door on the past. You don't try to forget the mistake, but you don't dwell on it. You don't let it have any of your energy, or any of your time, or any of your space."
