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 ...

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.)
7/24/09: out of town
9/4/09: 185.0 *WRONG WAY!*
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!

I've written my Surrender Statement & posted it on my bathroom mirror. I read it aloud everyday when I wake up as a reminder of the promise I've made myself.
I recently read the book, "Never Say Diet" & I'm following that program. So far so good!

I LOVE tv shows & movies! I'm trying to break my habit of crashing on the couch & watching this kinda stuff all the time...
