Ready to make 2010 my healthiest year YET!

June 28, 2010---UPDATE

Staying on the healthy path and trying to keep it fresh. I have decided to try to lose in 10% mini-goals so my first goal is 25 lbs. I am feeling strong and healthy! I am now 27 lbs down from my highest weight (which means I've gained 16 lbs in the last 6 months or so). It's all good and I am DETERMINED to be healthy even if I have to be a healthy 250 lb woman! LOL! Let's keep sparking, ya'll!!!

LOL! Let's keep sparking, ya'll!!!

***Original Intro***

I define 2008 as the year that I "grouped my poop" and got it together. Since June 18, 2008, I have lost 35-40 pounds (depends on when you weigh me!) and I have gained energy and confidence. 2009 has turned out to be less eventful than I hoped with the whole weight-loss thing, but there are many good things that happened.

I am much, much, much healthier. I have decreased my diabetes medication down to 2 pills a day (I was taking 5!). My A1C is down below 7 and I am working very hard to cut sugar out of my diet. I've gotten past "needing" sugar to feeling like I don't want the stuff in my body. I know you don't know me personally, but if you did you would know that this is HUGE! I used to prefer spending time shopping in CANDY STORES instead of CLOTHING STORES.

People who haven't seen me in a while say they can tell I've lost a little weight. That doesn't bother me! My focus is to be healthy and if I get thin as a side effect of that--GREAT. Let me say that again. My FOCUS is to be HEALTHY. I don't need to be skinny, I am comfortable in my own skin.

I am a teacher by trade, but feel like I need to model healthy eating--not preach about it. I am going to stop reading OTHER PEOPLE'S food labels until I can do it without making comments! LOL!

I love SPARKING and would love to have even more Spark-friends! Feel free to stop by and say "Hi."
