I started my journey in March of 2008. I had a toenail removed and couldn't sleep cuz it was hurting so I stayed up and watched the news. That's where SparkPeople came into my life.
I told my husband about it the next morning and he thought it sounded great and encourage me to check it out so I did. I joined immediately and started my journey. The next month my husband saw what it was doing for me and he joined. We were both having success in losing. Tom has continued faithfully logging his food,exercising and posting ever since. I myself got overwhelmed and extremely stressed with work and my grown children's problems that I went back to eating my old ways I stopped logging anything in and slowly gained back 24 the 49 pounds I had lost. I started back up with Spark and lost some of it then held steady gaining and losing a pound here and there. I have eliminated the huge stresses in my life... work I stepped down from management and all the stress went with it and grown children.. I decided they have to live there own life I can't live it for them they make their own choices. So with that said I have committed myself to losing this weight. I know I can do it and I have changed my ULTIMATE goal from under 150 to 135. I never dreamed I could until now. I have so much support in my husband and friends at home and on Spark that I am going to achieve that ultimate goal. I want to be one of those inspirational people that others look up to and say she did it so can I like all the inspirational people I read about here everyday. 135 LOOKOUT HERE I COME!
