In January of 2012, I finally got the courage to step on the scale and boy, was I mad when it told me 293 lbs! I decided it's time to wage a war against the obesity that's claimed my whole life - I want to make sure that my daughter knows that even though obesity runs in every generation of both sides of the family, you can fight it and WIN!!

Now I'm down 120 lbs and working towards the last 23 that I want to lose. I've had many great NSVs along the way, as well as some major ...

Now I'm down 120 lbs and working towards the last 23 that I want to lose. I've had many great NSVs along the way, as well as some major setbacks. I just keep reminding myself that every day is a new opportunity to do the right thing, and that "a year from now, I will wish I had started today" - I'm going to go get started right now for the ME I will be next year!!

Thanks for the encouragement SparkWorld!!

You really look fantastic!

Thank you for reading my blog. If your daughter enjoys butterflies, you might enjoy looking at my website. There is even a coloring page you can print.

SparkCoach suggested looking at others' pages for motivation and encouragement today and as I was looking around I found yours. I've been reluctant/slow to add sparkfriends, but when I saw the picture of your family (3 boys and a girl ) I felt a kinship with you. I have the same kids, though they are older than yours (3 boys and girl, in that order, ages 35 down to 27). My husband says, "It's the perfect family!" Anyway, congratulations on your success, thanks for the encouragement for today, and most of all I appreciated your honesty in your blogs. btw, I really appreciated the list of weights on the first of each month...you have done a tremendous job, even with some months posting no loss you hung in there. Way to go!

Sometimes I feel that way too, that not trying to get to the bottom of the range or back to where I was in HS/college is just an excuse, so it's REALLY helpful to see these comparisons! I just wish I had better pictures (or, that I was wearing better clothes in them) so that I had a better idea of what to watch for! It's been so long since I was even at my current top-of-a-healthy-range weight!
