65 total pounds lost since April 2007... wish I'd found SparkPeople earlier in the process!

Junior sis Allie and I are gonna win the Battle of the Bulge!...

...And... I DID IT!

I've moved the story of my SparkJourney (up to 5 February 2009) to a blog entry, here:


As of this writing (5 March 2009), I am happy to report that thanks to SparkPeople, and to the support of my friends and family both in and outside of this community, that I have reached my goal weight of 145 lbs! I'm now the same weight I was (perhaps even a tad lower) after my son was born, nearly 15 years ago!

But my journey doesn't end here. Next, I need to turn the healthy habits I've learned into life-long behaviors. And thanks to SparkPeople, I know I can do that, too!

Now, it's time to maintain, and to do what I can to help and encourage others here who, like me, are working to achieve a healther inner- and outer life -- for life!

Thanks for visiting my SparkPage. Hugs to you all!

My Goals:
One of my teams has set a January 2010 challenge to update the "Goals" section of our SpakPages. Since I reached my goal weight (and went even a bit further) by mid-2009, my goals are now to keep the weight off, and to learn to eat healthier and healthier. To that end, I will be exploring a move into a more vegetarian lifestyle. In the end, I'm not certain that I'll embrace it 100% -- but it won't hurt to try, will it?

My Program:
I am working to achieve my goal by consuming a weight-maintaing daily calorie level, and performing daily aerobic exercise (DDR).

    Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the wall of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out"

    Just stopping in to say Hi, and to let you know that I am coming back to Sparkpeople. I have just posted a new blog which sort of explains what happened to me and what I am about to start doing again. I am getting very excited, and in 14 days I will be here full time. Doing what I can to help others as well as myself. I hope to help people in some small way by being here and participating, and that in doing so we can help each other on this journey. Blessed Be, Tahena )0( And Happy Yule!
