It's now 2014 so I guess it's time for an update since I'm renewing my weight loss journey after becoming one of "those" people... you know, the ones that drop a bunch of weight and then over time gain it back.

I lost 50 pounds in 2011 by eating healthy foods and working out at the gym. By the end of 2013 I had gained back all but 10 pounds though. Several things lead to the gain... health issues, family health issues, stress, major changes at work, and a whole lot of excuses. I am an emotional eater... I eat when I'm happy or sad or mad or stressed. I also have a tendency to get lazy... because I tend to forget how much better I feel when I'm exercising regularly.

In 2014, I hope to find a better way to deal with stress, etc. so I can lose the weight and keep it off this time!

"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond imagination. It is our light more than our darkness which scares us. We ask ourselves - who are we to be brilliant, beautiful, talented, and fabulous? But honestly, who are you to not be so?

Get healthier
* Lower BP
* Lower Cholesterol

I am not sure what the magic number will be for me, because I still want to have some curves! I just want to get to a healthier weight to lessen my health risks... and I want to feel comfortable in my own skin.

I am doing it the old fashioned way... eating healthy and exercising!

Winnie, thank you for placing the comment on taking your own advice. I started on SP Nov 2012 and had lost 102 pounds. I felt like I could concur the world. I also gave advice to my SP friends. The latest 6 months have been supper hard on me and I have lost be strength and will power. I lost that beautiful glow of happiness I had concured from my healthy life style. I was just taking care of everyone else but my self. I gained back 45 pounds, SO fast. Enough is enough. I cannot look back and I have to start fresh, with a positve site on my life. I need to get that stregnth again , I need to feel happy and love myself again. I thank you for the strength you gave me on your posting.
