Me (at 140 lbs) in 2007
My little girl (and walking buddy!)
Snowboarding with friends in January (at 155 lbs)
Hi there. I am a 29 year old paralegal student. In HS, I was a twig, despite having a terrible diet. I'd like to say it was luck, but it was probably more of a timebomb, waiting to go off. My weight has fluctuated between 120 and 140 for the past five years, and I've recently hit my highest weight of 174. Besides wanting to reach/maintain a healthy weight, I have extreme hypothyroidism, as well as a history of heart problems and a stroke, so I really need to get in gear, because as I get older, my life depends on it. Good luck to everyone!

How is everything going so far? I had a little bit of a down - missed one weigh in at weight watchers last week - and then when i weighed myself this past week i had gained 2.6 lbs! It sucks, but I should have known it would happen - i was eating like a horse for 2 weeks. But i am happily getting back on track - I hope you got back on track as well. I am actually going home to chicago on Friday for one week to visit friends and family. I can't wait. I hear the weather there has been terrible though........
Anyways, hope things are going well for you!

I have hypothyroid, found out when I was 47. family history of heart & stroke on both sides! ;)
Following the spark point system has been the best "diet" for me in the last 7 years since I found out. Weight Watchers did not last, up & down for 5 years, finally quit to try on my own for 2 years, gained 20 pounds!!!
Last fall I just put my foot down and said drat - do this, life must be better and then I cam back to spark and have lost another 12 pounds since March!
Keep going until you find what works for you and make it a habit not a diet, that way it will last until you are 70!

Most definitely have the thyroid checked out first, then you can go from there. It might be starting over with another short time goal, Whatever the results of the test you can handle it, you WILL succeed! Skeeter
