**After previously surpassing my goal, I have gained back EVERY bit of weight I lost and more.

I'm working on taking better care of myself again. My goal is to be as healthy as I can. It's frustrating to be back at the larger size but I know that I can do better. I've got to manage stress better and make the commitment to consistently CHOOSE health over comfort.

I joined SparkPeople on March 1, 2010. While recovering from badly broken bones, tibia/fibula, I managed to become stronger, leaner, and healthier.

With hard work and with the help of Spark People, I lost over 20 pounds.

I can be stronger and leaner again!

Previous Goals:
1. Heal from broken leg enough to walk without crutches.
Achieved March 5, 2010

2. Gain strength and stamina to be able to walk a 25 min mile.
Achieved approx. March 10, 2010

3. Gain strength and stamina to be able to walk a 20 min mile.
Achieved March 24, 2010

4. Gain stength and stamina to be able to walk a 15 min mile.
Achieved 05/12/2010

    Dear dear spark friend. Thank you for the bloglove on my Birthday Month post. It really does feel different this year, without my mother, but it still feels good. For that I am deeply thankful. I couldn't have gotten here without the support of people like you.
