Ready to Look Great & Feel Even Better

I'm living in New York with my fiance, daughter, and 5 pets (3 huskies and 2 cats). I have struggled with weight issues since I was a pre-teen. Since then, I have really noticed my weight fluctuating up and down, but never down to a healthy weight for myself. Some of those times of being at the lower end of overweight, I tried a variety of "diets". When I decided to join SparkPeople, I thought I was trying another one of those diets. But, boy was I wrong!

I'm living in New York with my fiance, daughter, and 5 pets (3 huskies and 2 cats). I have struggled with weight issues since I was a pre-teen. Since then, I have really noticed my weight fluctuating up and down, but never down to a healthy weight for myself. Some of those times of being at the lower end of overweight, I tried a variety of "diets". When I decided to join SparkPeople, I thought I was trying another one of those diets. But, boy was I wrong! I've been learning so much about myself and what it really takes to live a healthier lifestyle...and loving every minute of it!

It's almost been a year since I've joined SparkPeople. So far, I've lost 31 pounds and I'm now in my smallest size ever. At my heaviest, I wore a size 14 or XL. When I started SparkPeople, I still wore an XL in shirts and a size 10 or L in pants. As of right now, I'm in a size 2 or XS. Sometimes, I still get shocked that I've achieved so much.

I'm still putting forth the effort to maintain the habits I have learned along my journey, as well as working on some new ones. I would tell anyone who thinks that it's impossible: "Look at me! I've never seen this version of me...EVER...until just recently. It's not impossible. It does require effort and determination, but it is NOT impossible."

Just stopping by to see “How you doin'?” I am trying to do my best Rocky Balboa New York City - Northern New Jersey and the Philly - Southern New Jersey accent. So do I sound like him?

I hope you are having GREAT day!

Marty

Oh! Sooo cool! Relaxation music. I absolutely love it. I have enjoyed it in the past and will do so again. Thank you so much for the gift. In fact, I'm going to go play it right now and spend some of my me time on lunch and exercise after.

Have a grand one! emoticon

Thank you for reading my blog and for the positive words. I do not see myself as a failure when it comes to my weight loss. I see myself as someone who got off track but is now determined to succeed.
I would love too be one of your Spark Buddies. Thanks again for being there for me. emoticon
