I started out on Spark in August of 2011 at 337 pounds. Over the course of the next year I lost over 100 pounds and have been in maintenance for over a year now. Working to stick to the low 180's or high 170's.

So much has changed since I lost the weight... I NEVER want to go back to that girl I was before. Time to live life like it should be lived!

Highest ever recorded weight - 344 (July 2010)
Starting weight this time around - 337 (Aug 2011)
Starting weight on Spark - 329 (Sept 2011)
187 (Nov 2012)
Maintaining - 185(January 2014)

    She does mean well. She is just really terrible at understanding bodies are different. And that work does not mean going to an office (unless it's about her, then she works ALL the time, despite going to an office 16 hours a week. That's another story). Five more months, then I'm in with my love.

    Come ooonnn, September!

    I thought about getting both, but the fiance and I discussed it (hypothetically, a couple months ago, as this was a HUGE SURPRISE for him when I told him) and we thought one would be cool for now, and if I liked it enough, I can always get the second done later. So, I'm only half-bad ass;)

    I can't think of anything I truly want in one place, either. I have some tat ideas and placement ideas, but weight-loss is my first issue, money is my second, and my future children are my third. I have no idea what being pregnant will do to my body (I mean, I KNOW, but I don't know-know!); I'd hate to get something done and then it becomes... lopsided... or something... hahaha So I'm still sitting on those ideas!

    Thank you for the birthday wishes! I was not soiled, and I was a little spoiled ;) My fiance snuck home and hung up "27s" around the house, as is my family's tradition, which was a lovely surprise. We indulged in wine and peanut butter pie, so I was incredibly happy. It was nice and low-key, as the wedding kind of takes up every spare change we have. "Spare" change. Snort. Right...
