Hi everyone. I started SP in 2007 as Wagysgirl. At that time my oldest daughter had just turned 1. Instead of losing the babyweight I had added some more in that year and ran into this website surfing the net. It has made a huge impact on my life... Before I thought that being fat was just my lot in life. Now I have hope that I CAN acheive and maintain a healthy weight. The only problem is that I don't always WANT to do the work required!

I had a brief pregnancy the end of 2008 and then another which went from Mid 2009 to Feb 2010 when my second daughter was born. I have adjusted to the larger family well but have not found concentrated time to spend on logging food etc.
In August 2010 my husband finally approached me about doing a competition. We both jumped on the wagon but had many stressful things to deal with at the same time. We were not successful at finding healthy ways to manage that stress. In the end of 2010, I managed to lose about 3 pounds and he gained one pound! So we are starting over again in 2011.

The info on the right with goals and program are holdovers from the past when I was "on the wagon". I like having them there to remind me what I am capable of. At this point I don't know what my program is. We need to have enough money to buy some vegetables and I will need to start cooking with calories in mind again.

Other Information:
I've had this quote on my page but I'm trying to slim it down so I've moved it down here. I put it on my page early in my spark journey. Before I knew how true it would be!
"Every one who wishes to gain true knowledge must climb the Hill Difficulty alone, and since there is no royal road to the summit, I must zigzag in it my own way. I slip back many times, I fall, I sand still, I run against the edge of hidden obstacles, I lose my temper and find it again and keep it better. I trudge on, I gain a little, I feel encouraged, I get more eager and climb higher and begin to see the widening horizon. Every struggle is a victory. One more effort and I reach the luminous cloud, the blue depths of the sky the uplands of my desire."
Helen Keller in her book "The Story of My Life"

    Thanks for reading my story. I was told at CR I can't read it to the group. I was looked at with judgment which I've seen in too many faces. I have my recovery. I have Jesus Christ. God's got this. So my testimony is where I thought I needed it to be. Thanks for letting me share with you.

    Welcome back! Thanks for stopping by my page.
    I have been slacking and have not lost any weight in awhile but that
    is about to change. Monday I am going to start trying harder and get rid of some more pounds. I am trying to work out my plan over the next few days. It's mostly my nighttime junk food that sabotages my efforts.

    It's great that you have hubby doing it with now. Be sure to let me know how it's going. Good luck! We can do it!

    God bless you for your kind thoughts . . . not sure what I want to call myself yet. When I signed up, everything I typed in they kept saying was already taken, so I just typed in radomn numbers to bypass. Maybe eventually I'll try to change it.
