My name is Marie and I weigh 225 lbs. I haven't always been a big women, most of my life up till 4 years ago I weighed only 120 - 130 lbs. After starting a new medication I quickly started to put weight on. Of course I didn't help this matter very much when I started to drink Coca-Cola can pop everyday. I am now drinking anywhere from 5-7 cans of it a day. I know that I have to stop drinking it and if I can stop I will lose weight from that alone but it is hard to stop doing something that you like doing and pop for me is like an addiction, I love drinking it! I just bought myself an Elliptical Stepper and made a promise to myself I would get on it everyday but after the first few times of only being able to go for 4 -4 1/2 mins, I got disappointed in myself and haven't got back on it yet. I found Spark Coach just yesterday (march 7th) and the site with all of it's information on it really sparked my interest. So I am here now and I really want to take a stab at this weight loss journey to find me again...and I am hoping with all of this new info and the support I get from here I can do this...In a years time I want to be able to look back on everything and see what I used to be like, I want change and I need help to get it but I am now more determined then ever to start it again and try my hardest to stick to it this time....I will find ME!
