Hi. My name is Michele. I am 29 years old and need to lose 100+ pounds to help improve my health. I have been overweight my whole life (14 yrs old: 230 lbs, 15: 290 lbs, 17: 310 lbs, 20: 340 lbs, 25: 360 lbs).

Since joining Sparkpeople in 2006 my weight loss has been up and down. A lot has happened in my life and I'm ready to settle down and get my health in order.

I am vegan, a compulsive over eater and a sugar addict. I struggle daily to make healthy food choices that will help my body instead of harming it.

    I can't believe you got snowflakes already! Thank goodness they didn't stick! I'll be sending warm thoughts your way and hoping we can both fend off the sticky snow for an other month!

    emoticon Hi from southern Manitoba, Mocha Sister! It's rare enough to run into other Canadians around here, but a Manitoban was completely unexpected. How's the weather in your area this days? I think we're getting out last semi-heat wave this week. We've already had frost, and all my neighbours are giving me garden veggies. Yay! It's nice to get a bit of cooler weather for running, but when I wear myself out, the walk home feels soooo cold!

    Thank you for dropping by my RIP Fitbit blog. I started using my SparkPeople Activity tracker today and I think I'm really going to like it also. I was planning on replacing my other Fitbit with a flex, I think they are a little more visual and I like that idea.

    Good luck in BLC23. I saw you were a Mighty Mocha Hunter. That team was my 2nd choice. I love the Seals, but I saw that the Hunters did a hike every Monday and I thought that looked like fun.
