Hello, my name is Jackie. On June 10, 2012, I decided to pick healthier food choices and take better care of myself. It's not easy, but am so impressed by the positive support found on Sparkpeople!

On 6 January 2014, I started the Shred Diet (6-week plan) by Dr. Ian Smith as part of my New Year's resolution to lose weight. It's working so far! :)

As of the end of April, I have lost 40 pounds following this plan and now weigh less than on my wedding day almost 8 years ago.

Personal Information:
My Highest weight: 268 lbs (June 2012)

During Oct 2011 through Jan 2012, I lost about 8 lbs by starting to exercise twice a week (mostly Zumba). I quit exercising, though, and by summer, I weighed my heaviest ever (268 lbs). Over the next months, I started better eating habits, lost a few pounds and didn't gain much over the holidays.

On 6 Jan 2014, I started the Shred Diet and am trying to add exercise back into my life.

First Cycle of Shred:
Starting weight: 260

Goals:
* 250 - reached 27 Jan 2014
* 240 - reached 9 Feb 2014
* 230 - reached 17 Mar 2014
* 220 - reached 21 Apr 2014
* 210 - reached 2 Jun 2014
* One-derland! - reached 30 Jun
Soon thereafter, I had some issues, lost my focus & fell back into old habits. By year end 2014, I weighed 238 lbs.

Started back on Shred on 5 Jan 2015!

Other Information:
I've got a great work-out partner -- my dog!
In rain or sunshine, he's thrilled to go on a walk!

I've battled with weight issues most of my life. In school, I was overweight until my junior year in high school, when I played on the soccer team. When I graduated high school, I was at my healthiest weight. In college, I gained weight and more pounds followed after getting married.

I've tried almost every diet over the years and have spent many years wishing for a change. My 2014 New Year's resolution is to stop wishing for a change and to actually do something about it. So, here's to a great 2014, full of positive change!
