This was taken the summer of 2002, when I started dating my now husband.
Taken in 2003, after having baby #1. This is my goal, to one day be back to this weight.
Before I started Sparkpeople. Weighing in at 194.

I have been back and forth on here for about 2 years... I think. I can't even remember. How sad. I have been back and forth, between wanting better and figuring that I might as well just accept the way I am. The first summer I was on here I lost almost 20lbs... but I started medication that made me gain back 30 in a short 6 weeks. Since then I haven't been able to settle on what to do. I know that this works, so I am back to it. I want so much to love the way I feel, and not feel like I need to worry about the way I look.
In High School I only weighed around 110. I was really active and did a lot of extra curricular stuff, so I was always going all the time. I ate junk, and not often enough. Looking back now, I realize I was too skinny but I was still very critical of my self image. I got to where I just wouldn't eat, with the excuse of "no time" or "nothing TO eat". It wasn't healthy. Then I met the man I now call my husband.
We dated, and I started eating again. Which was great, because I needed it. But I started gaining weight. We got married and had a baby shortly after. I wasn't really overweight after having my daughter, I still stayed pretty active. Then I started really battling with depression. I went in for my daughter's 1 year check-up to find that I have gained 90lbs over about a 7 or 8 month period. I was floored. I hadn't even noticed. I started working out, and lost a little bit. Then we found out we were expecting our second baby. After having him I again weighed in at just over 200lbs. I couldn't believe it. How did I ever get that big? How did I not notice?
So, I am ready to start a journey in the other direction. I have been through a lot of negatives in my life, like most people do. And I am ready to change it all to be something good. I am tired of being stuck with the negative, and I refuse to let it bring me down anymore. I am ready to LIVE my life, and yes... I am SOOOO DONE being the fat girl.
I just want to change my lifestyle enough that I can lose the weight and keep it off. I don't care if it takes a few months, I know that things worth having (or losing in this case!) are well worth waiting for.
My goal is to lose 65lbs. When I hit my goal my husband has agreed to go rock wall climbing with me. Its something I have always wanted to do, but never had the opportunity.
Following as much on SP as I can, eating lean protein and lower calories than I have in the past. Whole GRAINS! I am tracking everything, and drinking TONS of water.
Lose 10lbs - Get my hair done
Lose 20lbs - Buy new workout clothes
Lose 30lbs - Get a new bathing suit
Lose 40lbs - New shoes!
Lose 50lbs - Get a massage...?
lose 65lbs - GOAL!!! Hitting this weight will be a reward in its self.
