FOUR years later!

It's been 4 years since I first found SparkPeople. I'm at the high end of my comfort range right now, but working my way back down. And really - if anyone had told me when I first found SparkPeople that 160 would feel heavy to me I would have fallen down laughing!

Altogether I lost 86 pounds between November 2007 and April 2009. When I joined SP on 3/28/08, all I wanted to do was get down to a healthy BMI. On 10/22/08 I reached that goal and then figured why stop there?!? So ...

Altogether I lost 86 pounds between November 2007 and April 2009. When I joined SP on 3/28/08, all I wanted to do was get down to a healthy BMI. On 10/22/08 I reached that goal and then figured why stop there?!? So I updated my goal to another 18 pounds to give myself some security (and wiggle room)!

Luckily I lost all of those pounds before my wedding in April 2009 - although it's important to note that I didn't do it for the wedding - it was for myself, my new husband, and the family we will hopefully have together.

Now I have been working on maintaining for two years and so far it has gone fairly well. In some ways it has actually been more difficult for me than losing since it is not as cut-and-dry, but I am learning over time.

My stats - (Starting = first day with SP)

Starting BMI: 31.7
Current BMI: 21.8

Starting Hip Measurement: 45"
Current Hip Measurement: 37.5"

Starting Waist: 37"
Current Waist: 28.25"

Starting size: 16W/18
Current size: 6/8!

You're looking good yourself! Glad to see you're still here too! I wasn't visiting the site as much and then noticed some of my healthy habits slipping (like only 3-4 servings of fruits and veggies a day, ordering in too often) so I figured I'd better get back on track again. I hope all is going well!
