This is slightly above goal-weight...8 years ago...can't wait to be there again!





This is at around ultimate goal: 160ish...about 10 years ago





This is probably never attainable again (130ish), but dang! I looked good (circa 1985!)

Teachergurrl's Great Adventure...(or last-ditch effort)

Hi there... I'm a teacher in the Houston area, and I'm proud to say that in 2006 I lost 30-35 pounds and have KEPT IT OFF! You, too, can do it! I did it all just by tracking my food. In 2007, I lost another 20-25, but then I put back on about 15, mainly because I QUIT tracking my food.

Now it's 2008, I'm back on track and tracking, and I've dropped 16 lbs since Jan. 1st! A TOTAL OF FIFTY POUNDS LOST since I first started with Sparkpeople!!!!

I've also started exercising--walking about a mile and a half a day. I'm actually starting to kind of enjoy it--go figure! I just keep reminding myself that six months ago, I couldn't walk at all (see June blog entries for THAT drama)...and remember to be grateful for being able to walk. That is a big motivator.

That being said, the burnt orange background is for my TEXAS LONGHORNS! Hook 'em Horns!

Now, go read my blogs! (I'll try to do better in 2008, keeping them up to date.)

Thanks for your comment on my page .It has been a really scary time.Thanks for the book recommendation too.I believe it helps to read alot and am willing to try whatever I can to help her.It took four months of dragging her into local drs. to finally get a specialist's appt.It finally took a physiotherapist personally calling our GP to get things done.Looks like we are facing alot more appts.soon too.Thanks again .

Hi! I saw you on Teachers Trying To Lose. I was just curious where you teach in Houston. That's where I'm from. Hope things are going well on your journey! :)
