This is IT!

Hi! Name is Sara and I'm 24! I am 5'8 and am really overweight! I have alot of weight to lose. I have been on Spark since 2007 off and on and did lose weight but gained it all back plus some. I fell off the band wagon and just didn't care anymore. Now I am back and feeling good about this. I only have 1 body and I need to take care of it. Working as a Nursing Assistant in a hospital really makes you think about things. I don't want to live my life unhealthy anymore!

I started back up on Dec 28th, 2009. Weighing in at 205lbs!!! My first mini goal was to lose 5lbs by Jan 4th,2010. I Definately met that goal!! 1-5-10 196.8!!!!!!! I did awesome my first week and had a few bad choices through the week as well. I will continue to make small weight loss goals every week. Since I had such a big loss the first week I doubt I will lose that much the 2nd. So here are my goals.

Starting weight 205
1-5-10 200~ goal met lost 8.2 lbs 196.8
1-12-10 191 did not meet 196.2 lost .6lbs
since I did not meet 191 I will lower my goals.
1-19-10 194
1-26-10 ~ Day before foot surgery I will be down for atleast 2 wks so I am very nervous about how my weight loss will go.
2-2-10 185lb

Ok So I have been M.I.A for the past few months and I have been trying to stay on track and have. My weight has fluctuated by 5 lbs or so but I quickly lose it again. As of today I am still at 203.6lbs. I Have measured my waist and hips and I have definately lost inches. I took a look at my measurements report and from last year about this time, I lost a few inches in my waist and hips!! :) I am glad that I post these updates, it gives me something to look at and compare! So today is May 16th and I am starting this week strong and hoping to GOD that I am under the 200's this week...if he loves me it will happen LOL! I will see 199...or less on that scale this week!!!!! Wish me luck! :P

May 16th, 2011
203.6 lbs
Waist 36in
Hips 42 in.

So still haven't seen 199...but I am 201.6 today 6/6/11! So maybe it will happen this wk/month!!! It is taking so long but I must admit...I havent been giving my all and I know I should. I guess I keep thinking the weight will just fall off of me without too much effort...better get that out of my head now! Anyway's happy to see the number on the scale going down!!


July 31st. 199.8lbs! Have been bouncing between 199.6-201 for the past two wks. I am starting to feel a little better and people at work are commenting on my weight loss. To date I have lost 21.2 lbs! Although I should be happy about that I really am not. I haven't been trying as hard as I should be and I am only exercising 1x w/k other then walking while at work (some days can be ALOT). I realize what it takes to kick the fat and lose weight but why can't I just do it or stay motivated. There are alot of things that I am unhappy with about myself right now..I can't seem to stay focused on anything! I have to kick them lazy attitude of mine and get sh*t done!

I’ve belonged to a lot of teams here on spark-- i really do believe that the Emotional Eaters team is one of the very best, it’s a great group of people- very supportive and encouraging-- and it is very refreshing to talk with people who "get" what you're going through!! ¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥.*¸.•´¸.•*¨¸.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*¨) ¸.•*¨)
Check out the main page of the EE team- there are “stickied” topics you may be interested in to get involved- a buddy thread, a place to introduce yourself, weigh-in challenge, a birthday post. ¸.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*¨(¸.•´ (¸.•´ (¸.•´¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥. ¸.•♥´ .•´¨¨ ¸´¸.•´¸.•*¨)¸¸.•´ ..•-~'¸.•*¨)
Spark has a lot of great tools, and you will learn which ones work best for you. The best tools are the people tho, always willing to lend a hand, an ear, or a shoulder. I’ve been here for over a year now, and I still am overwhelmed, every day, by the kindness and goodness of others on this team!! That has made a world of difference for me. I hope you have the same success! ¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥.*.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*
