Me in San Diego, CA in September 2014.




This is how I looked before I quit smoking and this is also how I hope to look again in 2010!

I have always been a healthy person, well, for most of my life anyway. From age 13 when I stopped growing, until age 26 when I quit smoking, I was 150lbs. I may have gained or lost 10lbs throughout those years, but it was always consistent.

After I quit smoking I gained 50lbs, then gradually over the years the weight just kept coming. I have struggled with my weight since 1996 after I quit smoking.

I used SparkPeople for many years, but I was never really successful. I got a Android phone in December 2012 and my 2013 New Year Resolution was to use a mobile app to lose weight. SparkPeople didn't have one (then), so I used Noom and that app helped me to lose 70lbs. I went from 262lbs to 192lbs from January to July. Unfortunately I hit a huge plateau and the weight stopped coming off. After a couple of months of maintaining, it gradually started coming back and I have gained 40lbs.

I'm not waiting until January to start another resolution, I'm going to try to get back on the horse and lose whatever I can in as much time as I can. I'm not going to put pressure on myself, but at the same time, I know I can't keep living like this, so I will do what I have to to lose this fat.

I have The Spark attached to my shoe, and I am making sure I hit my step and fitness goals every day. My bicycle is on a bicycle trainer in the patio, so I have no excuses for why I can't get on the bike.

This weight is not going to get the best of me. I can do it, I know I can!
