21 lbs years old: lost about 20 lbs, but did not maintain and ended up weighing 271 lbs.
22 years old: after losing another 30 lbs and not maintaining it, I was back up to 261
23 years old: began doing daniel fasts every month for six months and unintentionally got down to 242
-In April of 2011, I weighed around 240. I wasn't working out, but hit and missed with tracking my calories. I wasn't weighing myself. Around September of 2011, I went to the Dr and found out that I was up 289. That was a huge wake up call because I never want to see a 3 in front of my weight again and 289 was too close to 300 for comfort. I began tracking my calories and working out. I started out at about 20 minutes 3X a week and now I am about 10 lbs down and I work out 45-100 minutes 5X per week. This time it isn't about weighing a certain number, it's about being healthy. It may take me ten years, but I know I will get there eventually.

Welcome to Gastric Bypass Sparklers! You’ll find plenty of support and encouragement here. No question is too stupid to ask, so post away and we’ll all put in our two cents worth. Utilize all the tools SP has to offer. I find tracking my food and exercise most helpful. Good luck on your weight loss journey!

Today you have the choice to be amazing. Today you can do more than just try. You can succeed. You can be victorious. Today, you can rock your world. You can look yourself in the eye and smile... because you know that you are fighting for an amazing cause: YOU. And YOU are absolutely worth fighting for.

You can also do the same thing tomorrow.

"It's not whether you get knocked down; it's whether you get up." - Vince Lombardi

In honour of the upcoming Summer Olympic Games this Saturday in London, I give to you the Olympic Creed which is as true for the games as it is for achieving our own goals and dreams each and every day:

"The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not to win but to take part, just as the most important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle. The essential thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well."

Today, you are a superhero, a survivor, a warrior, and a beacon to others for honouring yourself, your mind and your body; for making the choices that will make you an even better person tomorrow.

Today you are one step closer, because you decided to be. Fight strong, fight well, fight fair.

"Never, never, never, never give up." - Winston Churchill
