I am 29 and have been overweight for most of my life. I currently weigh 287 pounds and feel like it's much more. When I was younger being overweight never bothered me because I was still very active and could keep up with all my friends. Since I have gotten older and been in a job where I sit all day I am finally feeling that I need to change something. I have lost a large amount of weight previously but I have gained it back plus some. Over the last six months I have been slowly losing weight ...
I am 29 and have been overweight for most of my life. I currently weigh 287 pounds and feel like it's much more. When I was younger being overweight never bothered me because I was still very active and could keep up with all my friends. Since I have gotten older and been in a job where I sit all day I am finally feeling that I need to change something. I have lost a large amount of weight previously but I have gained it back plus some. Over the last six months I have been slowly losing weight by exercising more and watching what I eat. However losing my job recently has put a damper on my motivation. I figure since Angi uses SparkePeople and loves it I would give it a try.

Here are my 10% goals with my starting weight at 293 which is what I was at when I really got into sparking. I hope to be at my first 10% by my birthday in April.

293 0%
263.7 10%
237.3 20%
213.6 30%
192.3 40%
173 50%
155.7 60%
140.1 70%

Update 4/9/2014
The last year has been very overwhelming for me physically, my weight has gone back up and I continue to deal with pain issues that my doctors have not been able to diagnose. However, I have decided that I AM going to push through this pain. My husband and I have joined the new gym that just opened and we are planning to go pretty much every day that we can. This gym comes with a personal trainer visit once a month and it is a very supportive environment. The best part is they have a pool! I have also met with my doctor and discussed the healthiest way for me to go about losing weight, so now I will be on a high protein diet that is supplemented with fiber and lots of veggies. My goal is to lose 1-2 pounds per week.

Thankful for many blessings including you, my dear friend. The holiday is not just about the bountiful harvest and food. It also is best if savored-- taking a walk, playing games, sharing with friends and family at home and away.
