Old Introduction to Me... History of my Sparkpeople journey

Wednesday, January 02, 2013

Well Welcome to 2011... 2010 didn't go like I expected. I got swept up in a new job that had me working between 50-90 hours a week. I stopped working in October and now with the holidays behind me I am ready to re-commit to my goal of a healthy lifestyle. Last year was filled with back pain and knee pain due to a new back injury, but I am ready to work through that. My recent rest has helped a bit and I know my knee pain will never go away until my ACL tears fully. I gained about 20# last year and that felt defeating. It feels like a HUGE step backwards. But I know if I work hard and have support I will start to move forward again. I need to find I momentum I once had, it is remembering it again!
My hope and prayer is that 2011 will be so much healthier and better!

Welcome 2010!!!! I am ready for the new year and to reach my goal!

I just turned 33 on Feb 11 and I am starting to try to lose a lot of weight! I am married to a great husband who is very understanding and loving. We have been married for 8 years and have been together since I was 19.
We don't have any children.

I lost 30# in 2007 and then in Jan. 2008 I found SparkPeople through my loving friend Benita, since that time I have started the calculater over. So far I have lost over 60# total. *** UPDATE*** As of June 27, 2008 i have lost a total of 80 pounds since May 2007. It hasn't been easy and lately it has been real hard. As the stress creeps into my life the harder it comes. I pray each day that I will never go back to my old way of life. Recently we hung out with my niece who weighs just over 80# and I tried picking her up. I couldn't I thought to myself that is how much I have lost. When my husband picked her up later I whispered to him, I losted Kayla. I can't believe I have lost a large child already. I can't go back!!!

***Update April 2009
Well, it has been a long road and it will continue to be. I have lost 120# and now my weight loss has slowed down, but my motivation has not. Currently I work out in the evenings 5 days a week and I have just started running 3 days a week on my lunch breaks for 30 minutes. My hope is to do a half marathon next spring and a half triathlon fall 2010. I feel better about myself and I am happier. Each day comes with struggles and choices, I don't always make the right one or even the best one, but I try and that is my goal.
We have a loving family and we love the Lord. I truly believe I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me... even lose weight.
