I've always been overweight. Even when I was little and we lived in a house with a pool and I spent pretty much the whole day, every day swimming and playing outside, I was overweight. Then, in 2004, my mom and I started Weight Watchers together, and over the next two years, I lost almost 80 pounds. Unfortunately, at the end of 2006, I was diagnosed with uterine cancer, and spent the first half of 2007 going through chemo and radiation. Since I was diagnosed, I gained back all 80 pounds I'd ...
I've always been overweight. Even when I was little and we lived in a house with a pool and I spent pretty much the whole day, every day swimming and playing outside, I was overweight. Then, in 2004, my mom and I started Weight Watchers together, and over the next two years, I lost almost 80 pounds. Unfortunately, at the end of 2006, I was diagnosed with uterine cancer, and spent the first half of 2007 going through chemo and radiation. Since I was diagnosed, I gained back all 80 pounds I'd lost, and then some.

I've been cancer-free since July of 2007, and now it's time for me to buckle down and lose this weight again, this time permanently. I also have other issues I'm working on, including getting out of debt and expanding my social life. Basically, I've just decided it's time for me to get my life in order and to stop feeling out of control.

Member Since: 7/9/2008

SparkPoints: 4,129

Fitness Minutes: 818

My Goals:
My ultimate goal is to be at a healthy weight, probably around 130 or 140. That's going to take a while, though, since it means losing more than 150 pounds.

For now, I'm going to focus on changing my lifestyle and habits, so that I feel back in control of my life.

My Program:
I've done Weight Watchers in the past, and I may go back to it at some point. Right now, I'm going to start with exercise, because health-wise, I think it will make the biggest difference in the shortest time. I'll try to eat healthy too, but may not worry about tracking what I eat just yet. Once I've made exercise a habit, I'll work more on changing my eating habits.

For now, I'm not going to weigh myself every week, instead I'll dig out my tape measure and do measurements, plus go by how I feel and how my clothes fit.

Personal Information:
I like to read and play with my two kitties, Peanut and Cashew. I sometimes enjoy cooking, although lately I just don't seem to have the energy to plan and cook much, and it's not much fun to cook just for myself all the time anyway.
