Love being healthy and fit

Hello there my name is Jennifer Powell. I am from a little town in Ohio called Lebanon. When I first started my weight loss journey I weighed in at 312 pounds. I wore a size 28 (that was even laying on the bed to zip them up) I joined TOPS in August of 2005 @ 278.00 pounds. After I joined TOPS I was so into losing weight and had the support from so many TOPS members that they just pushed me right into being a KOPS in August of 2008.

Hello there my name is Jennifer Powell. I am from a little town in Ohio called Lebanon. When I first started my weight loss journey I weighed in at 312 pounds. I wore a size 28 (that was even laying on the bed to zip them up) I joined TOPS in August of 2005 @ 278.00 pounds. After I joined TOPS I was so into losing weight and had the support from so many TOPS members that they just pushed me right into being a KOPS in August of 2008. Along my weight loss journey I had two hearts due to stress. That did not stop me. I continue to get up at 4am M-F to go to the Country YMCA to do my workout with my best friend Tammy.
I lost my KOPS status this past Dec. of 2009. I am OK with not being a KOPS. I can't let a KOPS status tell me how to feel inside. I have managed to keep off 140 pounds for over two years. I love to excerise and eat healthy. It is just who I have become.
Couple things I have feel in love with on my weight loss journey besides TOPS.
1. The Calorie King ( I keep a food log everyday and it helps me count my cals.)
2. The Wii Fit Plus When I can't make it to the YMCA for a good workout I am able to stay at home and burn some calories. It is great on snow days because I hate to drive when it is bad out (remember I live in Ohio)
3. Trying new foods. I never get tired of food. It is fun to taste new things. Some I never eat again but if it is low in calories and good for you I will try it once.
4. Meeting new people on a weight loss journey or have been where I have been. They keep me going. Many say I help them but they don't know it I need them too!!!!
Cool things cool about my wieght loss journey.
1. I have been in Women's Health magazine of August 2009
2. I was on the TODAY show for the Joy Fit Club on August 17,2009

4. I did an interview with Dr. Tom Kruger on channel 6 Lebanon channel
5. I have done interviews for Local 5 news in Cincy.

I am the Leader of TOPS # OH 2114, Lebanon

Hi Jennifer! I just came across your Spark page from one of my Spark friends having you as their friend also. Wow, emoticon on your weight loss success and with all the different magazines & TV shows that you have been on. That is emoticon !! I joined TOPS 3 weeks ago and I really like it. I like going to weekly meetings for support and also the accountability of having to weigh-in there each week. I hope you don't mind but I am going to add you as a Spark friend. Congrats again!
