Done and loving it!

Hi! My name is Sara in Southern California and I started my lifestyle change in April 2008!

I've been overweight pretty much my whole life, with my skinniest being about 170 or so when I was in High School. And I felt chubby then, but damn would I give anything to be back in those shoes (and jeans for that matter!)....

So, I'd gotten into kind of a funk for the past couple of years, and I just ate anything and everything I wanted to, when I wanted. So, that combined ...
Hi! My name is Sara in Southern California and I started my lifestyle change in April 2008!

I've been overweight pretty much my whole life, with my skinniest being about 170 or so when I was in High School. And I felt chubby then, but damn would I give anything to be back in those shoes (and jeans for that matter!)....

So, I'd gotten into kind of a funk for the past couple of years, and I just ate anything and everything I wanted to, when I wanted. So, that combined with a sedentary job followed by an evening of video game playing resulted in at least another 40 pounds I've put on to an already overweight body!! But I was ready to get out of my funk.

On April 12, 2008, I looked in the mirror at my unclothed belly and was not happy with what I saw... And then and there I decided that I need to do something about it. I went out and bought a scale to weigh myself for the first time in over a year and confronted my weight issues head on.

April 14th, I found sparkpeople and started doing everything I can to make a real and permanent lifestyle change! So watch out, because here I come!!
