How fitting that I would blogg today on the anniversary of my first spark blog. Here's what I said......
"So today is my first blog entry of my weight loss story hopefully a success story. I have struggle with my weight most of my life and I feel it has held me back from living up to my full potential. Sure I'm smart, I'm pretty, but I'm a big girl. I'm 27 years old and recently the pressure to be thinner has hit me hard. Especially since I moved to Atlanta a year and a half ago which is no place for overweight people . So recently my job started a biggest loser weight loss contest so over a 6 month period the person who loses the highest percentage of their body weight has a chance to win 3,000. The contest started as of June 1, 2009 and so far I've shed 15 pounds but I'm still not in the top 10 but I hope to continue to work my way up. My goals is to be more fit and healthier and it wouldn't hurt to be able to shop at any store in the mall. I currently weigh 253 and my goal is 175 to start. That's 78 pounds wow that's alot and I know it's not going to be easy but it's something that I have to do. Well this is the start of my journey I have a long way to go. "
So although I have not reached my goal I have made awesome progess shedding over 70lbs and maintaining the weight loss for about a year. Although I didnt win the biggest loser contest at work it really motivated me to be where i am today. So again it's back to the basics for me so I thought I'd reminisce
back to where I started.
