Marisa from Texas

It's hard to believe that I'm almost to my goal. Including weight lost before joining SP, I'm over 90 lbs. down, 25 more lbs. to go! Not sure when I'll get there...but I will get there! I will probably never have washboard abs and I will always bear the consequences of being over 100 lbs. overweight, but I'm doing it and I'm not looking back! I choose to love my body, just the way it is, right now--battle scars and all.

Update: Taking weight loss break during my pregnancy. ...

Personal Information:
In January of 2012, I got to a point that I could no longer neglect my health. I was at my heaviest weight ever and was heading for a milestone that I never thought that I would get to--300 lbs.

I went to the Internet, searched for a 5K and signed up. In 2012, I did 3 - 5K's and 1 - 10K and lost 45 lbs.

After my last race, I started back with my old habits and gained about 15 lbs. back.

I've now started SparkPeople and have short, medium and long term goals to help keep me motivated.

"Weight loss is like driving: If you ever veer off the road, just make a u-turn and head back in the right direction."

This time of the year it's a plethora of food temptations.
Sending some Extra SPARK to get through it all.

Happy Holidays!

Thank you for being my Spark Friend and for your continued support in the up-coming year ahead.
