My mission after Twins: 100 lbs lost in 1 year!

Hi, my name is Shelby & I'm 27, married with newborn twin boys. I've battled weight issues since my late elementary school years. I lost the most weight right after high school & kept it off for 2 years. Then I had a bout of depression & gained 100 lbs over the course of the following 2 years. I ended up getting married at 215 lbs, & I still can't look at my wedding pic without sadness. You'd think that would've motivated me to lose the weight for good, but not quite. I've only lost 10-15 lbs ...
Hi, my name is Shelby & I'm 27, married with newborn twin boys. I've battled weight issues since my late elementary school years. I lost the most weight right after high school & kept it off for 2 years. Then I had a bout of depression & gained 100 lbs over the course of the following 2 years. I ended up getting married at 215 lbs, & I still can't look at my wedding pic without sadness. You'd think that would've motivated me to lose the weight for good, but not quite. I've only lost 10-15 lbs since that time. During my twin pregnancy, I gained a whopping 66 lbs & was the heaviest I've EVER been &, honestly, it scared me to be 266 lbs at a short 5'3"!

I have a tendency to lose some, then gain it all back later. I'm done yo-yo dieting & moving on from fad to fad. More than anything I want to be healthy & break my obsession with bad foods!

I've got thin pics of myself from 7 years ago, I just gotta get them scanned & transferred to this page...It would probably help me to see them consistently.

(I saw this quote on someone else's Sparkpage & I had to put it down...this says it all for me.)

I ENDED UP GAINING MOST OF THIS BACK UNTIL I WAS 200 LBS IN MARCH 2010, WHEN I FOUND OUT I WAS PREGNANT.

Thankfully, I had a pretty healthy pregnancy for carrying twins, & within 4 months, all 66 pregnancy pounds were gone!

I lost over 25 lbs with Sparkpeople before & I can do it again! Today is a NEW DAY. I'm going to take one day at a time & power through!

The Christmas card I am sending you is a wonderful, recycled message from ALMaGGIE:

Here is my Christmas Card to you this year..Enjoy and feel free to share with anyone you wish.

A Brother Like That

Paul received an automobile from his brother as a Christmas present.

On Christmas Eve When Paul came out of his office,

a street urchin was walking around the shiny new car, admiring it.

"Is this your car, Mister?" he asked.

Paul nodded. "My brother gave it to me for Christmas.

" The boy was astounded. "You mean

Your brother gave it to you and it didn't cost you nothing?

Boy, I wish..." He hesitated.

Of course Paul knew what he was going to wish for.

He was going to wish he had a brother Like that.

But what the lad said jarred Paul all the way down to his heels.

"I wish," the boy went on, "that I could be a brother like that."

Paul looked at the boy in astonishment, then impulsively he added,

"Would you like to Take a ride in my automobile?"

"Oh yes, I'd love that."

After a short ride, the boy turned and with his eyes aglow, said,

"Mister, would you mind Driving in front of my house?"

Paul smiled a little. He thought he knew what the lad wanted.

He wanted to show his neighbors that he could ride home in a big automobile.

But Paul Was wrong again.

"Will you stop where those two steps are?" the boy asked.

He ran up the steps.

Then in a Little while Paul heard him coming back,

but he was not coming fast.

He was carrying his little Crippled brother.

He sat him down on the bottom step, then sort of squeezed up against him

And pointed to the car.

"There she is, Buddy, just like I told you upstairs.

His brother gave it To him for Christmas and it didn't cost him a cent.

And some day I'm gonna give you one just Like it...

Then you can see for yourself all the pretty things in the Christmas windows
that I've Been trying to tell you about."

Paul got out and lifted the lad to the front seat of his car.

The shining-eyed older brother climbed

In beside him and the three of them began a memorable holiday ride.

That Christmas Eve, Paul learned what Jesus meant when he had said: "

It is more blessed to give..."

My Holiday Wish for the World Is That We all Could Be Brothers Like That!
