I have 3 beautiful kids that I adore. However, before I started havingI children, I weighed 118 lbs. 5 years ago, right before I got pregnant with my third, I weighed in at 224 lbs, my heaviest weight up to that point. I started taking diet pills, which worked for awhile, got pregnant, had my third and lost even a little more, and was down 54 lbs. Since then I have managed to slowly gain all of that back, plus some, and now have hit an all new heaviest weight of 231 lbs!!!. I did this ...

Since then I have managed to slowly gain all of that back, plus some, and now have hit an all new heaviest weight of 231 lbs!!!. I did this sparkdiet awhile back and it was working. Somehow, I just lost all motivation one day and have gained back the weight I lost doing it plus more. In the last year ive had to go buy all new.clothes several times because I absolutely couldn't fit into a single item of clothing I owned. I now have high blood pressure and just recently found out my triglycerides are also now high. I can't play with my kids anymore cuz I don't even have the energy to take them to the park or even play in our own yard with them. So before my kids have all grown up I would really love to get healthy and have energy and feel good and be happy
To get down to at least 175, preferably 150. Short term goal is to just get under 200 again.
Getting ready to just trying to start out small this time, 10 mins of exercise at least 5 days a week and making healthier food choices. Maybe it will actually stick this time if I do that instead of trying to go full force right outta the gate
I am from Oregon. I just moved to Omaha in.june of 2011. I spent the first part of my life in Northern Oregon and then moved to Southern Oregon when I was 12 and that's where Ive stayed until moving here.
| current weight: 246.0

Write down why you want to lose weight. List all the reasons why those extra pounds are burdensome. That is your motivation. Post them by your phone, in your car, on the bathroom mirror, next to the kitchen sink....
Part 2 is determining whether wanting to reach that goal is worth the effort needed to do so. If you do not think it is worth it, nobody else can help you to get there. If you DO think it is worth the trouble and hard work, nothing can stop you! We can encourage you, we can help you through the temptations and hard spots, but we cannot give you the motivation to do something that you do not want to do.
Part 3 is your plan. How do you plan to lose the weight that you have decided is worth the effort to lose? Will it be dieting? How? Calories? How many? Atkins? Weight Watchers? What kind of exercise and how much are you prepared to do at this point? If you don't have a plan, you will continue doing the same thing you are doing now and that isn't helping you to get to where you want to be..... which brings us to step 4...
Part 4- What is your goal? You can set an ultimate goal, but 50# is a lot to look at. You need to set smaller measurable goals. Not all of them should or have to do with weight. Perhaps it is to move for 10 minutes straight. That movement might be walking, dancing, jogging or marching in place. You might want to get below a certain milestone number (those over 200# tend to strive for ONE-derland). Or look at a 5% weightloss. YOU decide the goals.
Now put these all together and get this plan in motion.
MEASURE YOU SERVINGS! Our minds are sneaky and we vastly underestimate what we are eating.
TRACK EVERYTHING THAT GOES IN YOUR MOUTH! If you write it down, it is real. Don't try to remember at the end of the day. DO it immediately after you eat if not before.
MOVE! It probably won't be much at first. 15 minutes on the bike was hard for me at first and I had to ice my knee afterward. After several week I tried the elliptical trainer. I couldn't do a minute. Now I can do an hour without any problem.
The fact is, you CAN do this! I am proof of it.
