I started lifestyle change on September 11, 2010. My starting weight after I had my 2nd child was 215. Of course the first 15-20 lbs when by FAST because it was a lot of water weight from my child.

As of 02/26/2012---I have restarted this journey....I have to fight to win...or lose in this case! And I'm determined once again. I want to be around for my kids and at this point I have gained all my weight back plus some! Food is my drug..it's an extremely bad addiction that i WILL be ....

My inital goal weight is to be 115. I am 5'2 and at my biggest was 215 pounds. As of right now 08/13/2011 I weighed in at 137.8! Started doing my daily workouts again and eating right and hoping to get down to 115 by 05/07/2013.
My program is calorie counting 1200-1550 calories a day. I try to bounce back and forth between 1200 and 1550 but most the time end up ranging at the 1200 side! I am on my 3rd round of Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred and after it's done I will probably find another Jillian Michaels video! I work out 3-4x a week!
I am a 24 y/o female. I went to the doctor at the beginning of October of 2010 and that's when he told me I was too big when he got my blood results back he told me I had a fatty liver and if I didn't lose weight it could damage it. That scared me straight. After I lose this weight I am bound and determined to NEVER be overweight again.
Welcome to Spark People! Joining this website is an investment in your future – the future of your physical and emotional well-being.
I would like to tell you about National Walking Month, which is October! Each year Health Enhancement Systems sponsors Walktober, a national walking campaign. The Walktober website calls it an “inspiring program is designed to boost your energy and improve your health by making fitness walking a habit during October… and beyond.”
There is a great group on SparkPeople called Walktober Sparks, and I would love for you to become a part of this group. This group is for Sparkers who wish to find their Walktober Muse and enjoy this inspiring campaign in the spirit of laughter and perhaps a bit of competition. Of course, you do not have to join the national campaign to Sparktober during Walktober, but if you wish, there is a $4 fee to join ($20 if you want the tshirt). I personally think it is worth it, but many people just do not want to pay that fee. That is okay with us! : )
Some fun things you will find in the Walktober Sparks team: Walk Talk is where we report our daily exercise. It sort of keeps us accountable to ourselves and each other. We might think of breaking into groups for a little friendly competition. Just for FUN forums include a daily totally useless trivia question and a more serious daily question. We are also looking for forum & activity ideas, so jump in with your suggestions!
Some things you will find on the Walktober Site: The interactive calendar is a fun way to track walking (you choose whether to track steps or minutes)! I wish we had it all year long! Walktober sends you an inspiring email every day, along with a photo of the day and a recipe of the day. If this group gets big enough, we can even divide into competitive teams of 4 or more, and Walktober will track our progress. It is a great compliment to SparkPeople, but it only lasts ONE MONTH. I hope we can all find a Walktober Muse that will keep us moving all year long!
