Swimming my way to success!

I am 31 and finishing up my PhD (writing) in cancer biology. I am defending in April and graduating in May.

I've lost over 50 pounds on sparkpeople, but they have been the same pounds over and over. I'm tired of the cycle!

I gained last week too. Weighed in at 250.4 :( GRR Really hoping to hit 247 on Sunday! Have you been tracking? I know that I've been slacking in that area and the scale took a hit for it. It seems that the better I am about tracking the better I am with the losses. Going to try and track every little thing better tomorrow and hope for that nicer number come Sunday!

We are in the same place. The lowest I got was down to 242 and then over the holidays I ballooned up to 255.8. I'm making my way back down and am hoping to reach 239 by March. That will be my 50 pound mark and it's something I've been shooting for for awhile. Good job on getting back down closer to the 240s. We can do this! :D I'm hoping to hit Onederland by the end of the year..maybe it can be a goal together :)

I am starting over with C25K! I really want to learn to be a runner and I really do enjoy it. I just don't have much stamina. I love that you have gotten back in the pool! I hope I can start swimming once a week here an there after I get back from Vacation in April. :D
