Hello, My name is Starla. I've been battling the bulge for what seems like forever. I'm happy to say for the past 10yrs I've been maintaining 120+ lb weight-loss give or take 10-15 lbs. My lowest weight to date was 130lbs that was the result of becoming ill and having emergency surgery. I went from 150 to130 in about 18 days. I went from wearing a size 6 to a size 2. After the surgery it was about 60 days before I was aloud to eat solid foods. As you can imagine I looked like a skeleton ...
Hello, My name is Starla. I've been battling the bulge for what seems like forever. I'm happy to say for the past 10yrs I've been maintaining 120+ lb weight-loss give or take 10-15 lbs. My lowest weight to date was 130lbs that was the result of becoming ill and having emergency surgery. I went from 150 to130 in about 18 days. I went from wearing a size 6 to a size 2. After the surgery it was about 60 days before I was aloud to eat solid foods. As you can imagine I looked like a skeleton with skin on, just plain frail. When I could eat again my goal was to gain my weight back. Needless to say, the weight gain happened quite rapidly and I over gained to the tune of 30 additional pounds. My weight has since stabilized and I have regained my strength so now its time to get busy and get my weight back in check.

I currently weigh 180 my goal weight is 145. My plan is to workout daily 60 minutes of cardio and weight training 3 days a week.

I plan to jot down everything I eat. Make wise healthy choices and see how we do with that. I'm really not wanting to go on a "diet". However, I will be eliminating all sugar, pasta, rice and bread. My meals will consist of fresh fruits and veggies and lean protein such as white fish and salmon on occassion.
