I joined SparkPeople last September and I have now lost 33.7 lbs!
I started at 197.7 lbs and was squeezing myself into a size 16 jean and was wearing 2X or larger tops. (depending on the style/material.)
That was my highest weight ever!
I'm now 14 lbs. away from my Goal Weight!
(I'm 39 and I'm 5'9)
My focus is now going to be on that "Finish Line."
I'm setting the Goal Reaching Date to Dec. 31st, New Years Eve so I can START New Year's Day, 2013 as a New Woman that can begin "Maintenance" for the first time ever!
I have been at war with myself and with my weight since giving birth in 1994!!
(Before expecting, I was a size 0-1.. 107-115 lbs. I was born skinny and stayed skinny until all my hormones changed. I was healthy by the way.) LOL
I will never be that thin again and I don't want to be. That was "youth."
I'm a mature woman now and my desire is to have curves that work with a fit, toned and healthy body.
I desire to be comfortable in my own skin and no longer "run from the mirror," or "cry when trying on clothes in a store."
* I desire to be Healthy.
* I desire to Feel Good: Inside & Out
* I desire to Look Good.
Victory is MINE and I will reach the FINISH LINE!
I'm a Sparker for Life! No more Diets & Let Downs!
I'm currently doing the Action Steps in Ch.7 of the Spark book and reading my way through the Spark Cookbook! As well as cooking!
We have been so pleased w/the recipes so far!
I will update my Blog/Journey each week until I reach the Finish Line!
