Hi my name is Sandy and I have struggled with my weight all of my life. Yo-yoing anywhere between a size 12 and 22. I have had many ups and downs with sparkpeople. I start off 2015 at 242 pounds my heaviest to date. My goal was to lose 88 pounds. I finished off 2015 at 2013 pounds. I had gotten down to 208 but the holidays hit and I gained some.

Because of health related issues (blood sugars and cholesterol) my dotor has put me on qsymia which should help me reach my goal. My goal is to eat 1200 - 1400 calories a day, exercise 6 days a week.

I still have a long way to go to reach my goal weight in 2016 and but I am sure I can do it with focus and alot of exercise.

My kids are my life and I want to make sure that I get to enjoy many years with them and potential grandchildren. So now is the time to get it together and stay motivated and focused on my goal.

My 2016 goals are to participate in a couple 5K's, drink more water, lose 50 pounds this year, set a good example for my children with eating and exercise, and stay on my spiritual journey remembering daily how to live a better life and treating others how I would like to be treated.

    Glad to read you lost weight this week. I think I probably gained what you lost, but it really is my own fault. Eating was not the greatest this week.

    I am planning to do BL in the fall, assume you are as well?

    Started my project today, hence the walk this evening. Would like to get one in tomorrow morning as well.

    Sorry the scale continues to be a challenge, it for sure is not because of lack of effort on your part. I am sure you can tell all the muscle you are building and inches lost, even if that darn scale doesn't reflect those numbers.

    Is all your cleaning a delayed Spring cleaning? Are you cleaning things out of the house (donations?). I know I had to spend some time last weekend going through papers was feeling too disorganized and I know that being part of being healthier for me is keeping organized.

    Have a great weekend, hope you have some fun family activities planned.

    Busy busy (talking about both of us ;) Had a great time visiting with family over the fourth and took extra time to work on projects at my sisters house. All turned out looking good and always so much easier when you have help than trying to accomplish on your own.
    I definitely have lost weight differently this time than the last time I was at this weight. Pants too big but on the other hand not fitting into smaller sizes that I wore in the past and when I take my measurements my arms are exactly the same as three months ago but I can tell sweaters are fitting better in the arms. Will see what the weigh in says, as I am not ambivalent just more cautious that I need to keep what I am doing to realistic so that I can maintain my program in the future. Have maintained nutrition numbers multiple times in our current challenge but I cannot always say that has happened when I look back over the reports over the past few months ( a good reality check).
    Hope that your daughter is doing well and you are seeing the results from all of your effort and work over the past couple of months.
    Wishing you a successful Wed.
