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."

Thanks for reading my blog! Actually the woodchuck incident was really funny. When the dogs figured out how to get out of the house I stopped in the middle of the chaos and praised them for being so smart! I probably should reward them for being escape artists but figuring out how to open a sliding glass door without opposable thumbs is pretty impressive.
