10/29/15 - Pregnancy kicked my butt and I'm back up near my highest weight - so that means I'm back on SparkPeople! I already know it's going to be harder this time - I'm 7 years older, have a 6-month-old baby, and am a working and breastfeeding mother now. But I'm determined and I know I can do it since I've done it before, so here we go...

For posterity, I'm keeping my old page info below:
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 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"

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