Back on Track (Finally!)

How do I introduce myself? I'm a single 31 year old living in Queens, working in Manhattan. I hate that my weight holds me back from being "all that I can be." I walk around midtown and see these thin, professional women who look so classy in their suits and I feel frumpy. I have struggled with my weight my whole life. Four years ago I started a journey to losing weight.

I had a sleeve gastrectomy at the end of April 2014. I'm adjusting to my new way of eating. It's been very challenging but I think I'm doing alright.

I've been on and off SparkPeople since November 2008. I just prefer the vibe here to other websites- or even getting more personal here than on my other social media. It's a preference.

Member Since: 12/2/2008

SparkPoints: 8,011

Fitness Minutes: 930

My Goals:
Get myself to a weight that I am happy with. I used to have a number in my head but I don't want to focus on that because it seems impossible.

I want to be able to shop at 'normal' clothing stores. I want to fit into the seats at the theater. I want to feel confident and attractive when I meet people. I want to dress nicely for work and not look like a slob because of my fat rolls.


My Program:
I had a sleeve gastrectomy in April 2014. I'm trying to follow the plan that my nutritionist and I have discussed. It's primarily protein heavy- and fitting in vegetables/fruits, etc when there's room! I don't have much of a stomach so I can't eat very much food.

Personal Information:
Live in Astoria
Work in Manhattan.
Hang out in L.E.S. & the theater district.


Other Information:

"Success is not measured by what you accomplish but by the opposition you have encountered, and the courage with which you have maintained the struggle against overwhelming odds." ~Orison Swett Marden

I think itís important that we consider the fact that we are still Sparking and working toward our goals as success! We too often forget to congratulate ourselves and others for the small steps forward and tend to dwell on our faltering steps instead.

So, to all my Spark Friends:
emoticon Congratulations!
emoticon Job well done for being here today and for every postive step forward you take!

ďDon't exchange what you want the most for what you want right now!Ē
~ Unknown

Wow! I donít know about you, but I need to remember and repeat that quote to myself when Iím faced with choices! I tend to choose before thinking and need to become more mindful in all areas of my life. I hope today is going well for you and that you are enjoying your life and the people in it.
