On my way!

I am 32 years old and have been battling my weight for the past 14 years. In college, my weight ballooned from 150lbs to my heaviest, 265 lbs. After graduating and moving to the Milwaukee, WI area, I was able to drop 50 lbs about 6 years ago. Little by little, the weight crept back on, spurred, in part, by my relocation 3 years ago. This past December, I stepped on the scale and was shocked to see that I had inched my way back up to 300lbs - my heaviest ever. I tried Weight Watchers but wasn't ...
I am 32 years old and have been battling my weight for the past 14 years. In college, my weight ballooned from 150lbs to my heaviest, 265 lbs. After graduating and moving to the Milwaukee, WI area, I was able to drop 50 lbs about 6 years ago. Little by little, the weight crept back on, spurred, in part, by my relocation 3 years ago. This past December, I stepped on the scale and was shocked to see that I had inched my way back up to 300lbs - my heaviest ever. I tried Weight Watchers but wasn't happy with the WW program, and I found myself sticking with it for a few days and then binging--only to hate myself more and repeat the cycle. I decided to try Spark People to give myself a better understanding of the way my body works and to feel less restricted. I have never been one to swear off food--I love it too darn much! My goal is to get down to 140lbs, which is still, technically, not within my BMI range, but I would be comfortable and happy at that weight. I'm loving SP so far, and I getting very into fitness and learning to train my body and teach it to be efficient. I'm excited and optimistic for this journey--I know it won't be easy, but the payoff will be well worth it!

Thanks for taking the time to read and comment on my Color Me run blog. I found this one right after my first 5k. So much fun. I am planning one race a month so this one fit right in and was so relaxing. Have a great week.
