This is what I posted on my Spark Page in early Jan 2013

Earlier this year, 2012, I reached my heaviest weight of 280...I am not back down to 240, and ready to get back on track to reaching my goal1...12/11/12

12/18/12 So I have decided to set up an exercise goal. I want to be able to perform the following exercises:
push ups...50
crunches . 50
scissors 50
leg lifts 50
bicep curls 25 per arm..8 pound weights
overhead tricep curls 25...8 pound weights
lunges 25 per leg
kick backs 50 per leg
plank 60 seconds
For cardio I am focusing on walking at least 30 mins at least 3 times a day. Kinda upset cuz I have a gym memebership but having transportation issues, so I am making due.

50 squats (goal met)
13 lunges per leg
27 kick backs per leg
2 push ups...LOL
plank 40 secs
1 cruches
At this point I began to feel sick, probably cuz I had only eaten cereal earlier, so I stopped...I will be doing weekly updates. Oh MY MEASUREMENTS: SIGH!!!
ARMS...17 inches
THIGHS..35 inches
BELLY...44 inches
I will post my weight tomorrow. 255

Well, needless to say, I haven't kept up with that plan, but it takes time to form habits. But I have lost 3 pounds in one week.

I am part of BLC21, a biggest loser competition here on Spark. I love my team!!! They have encouraged me and helped me to stay on track and I love them more and more everyday!!! I have gone a full week of no sodas, because or their encouragement. I was drinking like 4 sodas a day, the hard stuff like cokes, and energy drinks, sometimes to a day...

    Congrats on losing the 3 pounds in a week, that is awesome and keep it up. It definitely takes time, and persistence, and patience, and willpower, and determination, all of that, but that's what we have to believe we have the most of, time, so keep up the good work, you're a fighter and you can do it.
