(3/4/13) - Oh my, oh my, how time does fly. Has it REALLY been 3 years since I was active on Spark People???? Well, it has. And, I'm back. Unfortunately, it's same old, same old. BUT, you have to start again sometimes, AND you have to start somewhere. I won't begin to pretend I will be consistent. I've been tracking food once or twice a week for a few months now. I consider that an NSV! (non-scale victory). I also have lost about 20 pounds from my highest known weight, but it hasn't been really from "trying". It's more a result of some medicine changes and some financial changes - having to eat at home more REALLY makes a difference! Anyway, I am hopeful and positive I can use Spark People's tools to motivate myself to keep going on a downward spiral. I know there will be set backs, as this has been, and will always be, a long journey, but I'm starting again, and I'm glad to be back!

(2-15-10) Ok, ok. I've been putting this off 'cause I've not been making losing a weight a priority over the past several months, but for some reason, I was named the 50 Pound Challenge Team's "TEAM FAMILY MEMBER OF THE DAY!" for Feb 15th today and it has inspired me to get back to work. I actually have been "working" to lose weight for about the past 3 weeks. My weight got back up to 392 so I've lost a little over 10 pounds since then and it would seem that there is no time like the present to get back on the spark people wagon and get right back to work! Thank you to everyone who has been so encouraging, even during my absence. I'm looking forward to getting back on line and continuing my current losing streak. Spark people are great! Thanks for sticking by me, even when I wasn't sticking by myself! See you around the boards!!

(12-23-09) Hi all my Spark pals! I'm sorry I've been away so long without explanation. A special thank you to those who have kept in touch with me even though I've not been the best Spark friend over the past 2 months. I have so much going on right now, I had to take a break from something and unfortunately, Spark was the activity I had to sacrifice, for a while anyway. I should be back soon after the new year though and am looking forward to making my health a top priority again. I hope you all are having great weight loss success and are enjoying a joyous holiday season. I'll catch up with you soon!! Much love, Serena

(11-26-07) I've been obese since childhood and want desperately to see what it's like to be a thin person in this "thin" loving world we live in. I'm so afraid I will die never knowing what it's like to be thin. I want the stares I get to be from looking good, not like a circus freak. I want the hoots and hollars from rude men to be because I am desirable, not disgusting. I want to be able to get up and dance and not be embarrassed and I want to be able to ride on a rollercoaster again. It's been almost a decade since I rode on a rollercoaster. So, while I've tried countless diets and "programs", I've succeeded only in adding to my weight over the years. I'm hoping sparkpeople will be the "spark" that I need to make my dreams a reality.

My Program:
I always start off gung ho whenever I try to lose weight and I burn out fast. This time, I'm going to take it slow and just do a little every day so it's not such a shock to my system. I figure if I eat a little less and exercise a little more each day, I'll eventually get where I need to be. It's baby steps for me this time!

I'm from Texas, I'm married, I have 3 kids. I'm a Christian, I love getting to know new people, and I would love to make new friends through SP.

Other Information:
I love going to movies, eating out, dancing, watching TV and surfing the Internet. When I was more fit, I liked shopping, playing with my kids, and working out. I hope to get back to those things soon!
