Joo's Journey to Losing 100 Pounds!

Hello Sparkers!
I am 23 years old, and have been overweight for as long as I can remember! I have a wonderful fiance named Matthew who fell in love with me at my heaviest weight (280lbs). With wedding plans in the future, and thoughts of starting a family, I am more determined than ever to become healthy again. Currently starting SparkPeople, I am at 270 pounds.

Hello Sparkers!
I am 23 years old, and have been overweight for as long as I can remember! I have a wonderful fiance named Matthew who fell in love with me at my heaviest weight (280lbs). With wedding plans in the future, and thoughts of starting a family, I am more determined than ever to become healthy again. Currently starting SparkPeople, I am at 270 pounds. My ultimate goal as I begin this journey is to lose 100lbs by August 10th, 2013. I am so lucky to have my best friend as an incredible support for me as I begin one of the hardest challenges of my life so far. I have made a plan with Tara to e-mail her every single night to keep her updated on my progress, such as how my day went, struggles I may have had, and success'. I am feeling motivated and excited to begin this new part of my life!

I have two visual motivators to help keep me on track throughout this process. The first one is a combination of two jars on my dresser. In one jar I have 100 blue pebbles, and in the second jar I have empty space waiting to be filled up by the same pebbles as I lose each pound - moving a pebble for every pound that I lose into the waiting jar.

My second motivator is my list of rewards as I lose weight. For each 5 pound lost, I will reward myself with a "small" reward. For each 10 pounds, I will rewards myself with a "big" reward. Each 25 pounds will represent a "milestone" reward for me. Here are the rewards I have chosen for myself:

15lbs-265-Small-Candle: check
20lbs-260-Big-Bath Bombs (3-4): check
25lbs-255-Small-Piggy Bank: check
30lbs-250-Big-SparkPeople Cookbook: check

Hi Julie and welcome to Montreal, Canada Sparks. Are you aware that we are having our first rally on Saturday. We are about 15 people getting together to walk/talk/eat at the Cote Vertu Shopping Centre. We are meeting inside in front of the Zeller's store. We would love for you to join us. If you wish to do so, just let me know and I will give you further info.

All the best

Dianne

Thank you for the comment on my blog! I do 40 calf raises every morning, (for the past 2 months). I know that is part of the reason I was able to get those boots up!

Good luck on your goals!!
