2013 is going to be the year!

Hi,

My name is Maryanne and I live in Dedham, MA. I was born and raised in Boston (also work there) and I have a love/hate relationship with both food and exercise. I've spent the better part of my life on all sorts of diets. I had success with Weight Watchers in the past but the last 12 times I joined I just didn't seem to get anywhere.

Hi,

My name is Maryanne and I live in Dedham, MA. I was born and raised in Boston (also work there) and I have a love/hate relationship with both food and exercise. I've spent the better part of my life on all sorts of diets. I had success with Weight Watchers in the past but the last 12 times I joined I just didn't seem to get anywhere.

There comes a time in everyone's life when they make the decision that enough is enough. Hopefully with the support of the Sparks community, that time has come for me and I'll find the strength to get both fit and healthy in 2008.

UPDATE as of May 31, 2008

Well as the month of May draws to a close, I've stayed on track for losing 5 lbs a month. Some months it was more and some it was less but the end result is that so far I've lost 24 lbs (3 before I joined SP) and 21 since joining. As I move into the Summer months, I plan to continue on this journey and will do my best to reach my goal.

UPDATE as of July 30, 2008

I'm not sure where the time has gone but here we are wrapping up the month of July. I have been unable to stay on track losing 5 lbs per month but there have been some significant changes for me. To date, I have lost 28 lbs (25 with SP) and am finally starting to see changes. In the last month I have stepped up the exercising and am walking at least 4 times a week. I've been trying to get in 3-5 miles a day and think I'm doing a pretty good job of it. I've also increased the veggies and fruit which is a 'sore' spot with me. All in all, I have a new level of determination and am hopeful that in the coming months I will see additional successes.

Hmmmm, I think I need to update my picture! Maybe that will be a new goal for me to get that done before my next update!

UPDATE as of September 15, 2008

Not too much has changed. I'm doing good with the walking and toning area's I didn't know existed. I am still holding at about 28-30 lbs but feel great. I managed to get thru the summer and several vacations with no damage which was my goal. Now that September is here I hope to get back to losing weight. I've just recently joined a 12 week weight loss challenge at the local gym so I'm hoping that will be just the ticket to get rid of a few pounds. Time will tell.
Still need to get some new pictures downloaded which I really will do before I type my next update.

January 5, 2009

New year! Things are going well. I'm down about 35 lbs and after a two week 'party' over Christmas I'm ready to get back to business. 2008 was a great year and I'm about to celebrate 1 year with SP. I joined this site and really felt like 2008 was going to be MY year and it was. I made so many changes during the year including exercise, and eating healthier and I feel so much better. I look forward to 2009 to continue this journey and plan to make this year even better then 2008!

January 5, 2010 - well so much for 2009. It came, it went, and I gained almost 10 lbs before the year was thru! Once again, the stress of work beat me down. It's behind me now and as I approach my 2nd anniversary with SP, I am more determined then ever. I will plan, I will follow, I will drink my water, and I will exercise. If I stick to this, I will also be vacationing in Hawaii in December to celebrate a big birthday.

2011 - This is it - the year that I will succeed! I've been saying it for 3 years and after much success in 2008 I blew it all. Back at it and feeling good. The goal is to stay focused across the board - FOOD/WATER/EXERCISE! I will do this and never quit!

2013 - Seriously?? I said it in 2011, again in 2012 but 2013 WILL BE MY YEAR!

I feel the same way. Weigh the same too. Went from a size 8 before menopause to a size 14-16 after. It sucks. emoticon
