In September of 2009 I went over the 300 lb mark. I have been as high as 326, maybe even higher but didn't get on the scale. I joined a 12 wk. holiday wellness challenge at work and set my goal for 16 lbs, since I weighed in at 315.2. Today was weigh-in and I weighed 299.0. I cried. For the first time in a very long time, I feel like I can do this. My goal is to get to 250 lbs and to maintain that. My Dr told me that is a great weight for me. When I was 325 lbs it did not seem doable. When I decided to take in 5% increments it seemed a little easier. Now that I have met that 1st goal it seems very doable. Now instead of looking at needing to lose 75 lbs, I now can look at needing to lose 49 lbs. I haven't felt this hopeful and happy in a very long time. Sparkpeople and Zeal Wellness Drink has given me the ability to do this.
