New update:
Spent most of a week in the hospital back in August '14 with Congestive Heart Failure.
I've gained 10 lbs since then.
15 more lbs and I will be right back where I started. 4 years ago. My life is crazy insane busy and i don't know where i'm going to get the energy, physical or mental, to do this thing, but i'm going to do it anyway, or die trying! (Literally!)

Update: 6-28-14
Fresh start! I made it to within four pounds of being overweight rather than obese, then life and stuff happened and I backslid! I'm sort of mad at myself, but that does not undo what's been done so the only thing to do now is do it again! I feel like all kinds of old, creaky, achy, sluggishness, and what kind of way is that to feel? Looking for my best life, a step at a time!

I was 228 lbs and am only 5'2". I got plenty sick and tired of being sick and tired, my knees and feet hurting, the specter of obesity related illnesses rising before me, and decided that enough was enough already! I lost 15 lbs, and then one day, my hubs surprised me with a new yoga mat! On the box was an advertisement for SparkPeople! I looked it up and joined right away! That was on 1-14-11. I didn't become active until 4-11, and have lost 30ish pounds since. But I gained 10 back over the holidays. Taking it more seriously this year!

Alright, you've been drinking the pink drink?! I don't know, the way my friend looks after four months is wonderful, but I'm not sure if Plexus is the entire reason. I think I might just give it a go. I do know when I did the Whole 30, I felt amazing, and didn't really spend extra money. It is a huge time investment, but a healthy one. I am so wishy washy emoticon

I know exactly what you mean about having your husband home and messing up your routine!! Mine is thinking of retiring within the year, and while I'm looking forward to that next phase in our life, I'm also kind of scared of how I'll adapt to having him here all the time!! It will definitely require a lot of adjustment to how I do things.
