This is a snap shot of the numbers that have been my last 5 years of weight each March 31st.
I found SparkPeople in 2010. I was trying to find a way to get my weight under control and get healthier. I was dealing with lose of my favorite aunt to complications of diabetes, strokes, hypertension etc. You see... my mom's family carries about 30-50 pounds of extra weight on average and my dad's family are morbidly obese. Only 2 out of 9 of the siblings are not in excess of 150 pounds over weight. As you can see, I struggle with losing and keep it off.
Even though I haven't achieved my goals yet. I have kept them in mind and worked on them off and on for the last several years. SP is a great blessing for me. I have lost journals and thrown away records, but SP has not been misplaced or forgotten about.
My plan is to see 158 on the scale before my 45th Birthday. I have lost 20 pounds this first quarter of the year and intend to slowly continue. I want it to be forever lost!! I am trying to truly embrace the SP way and make exercise a part of my daily life as well as stop the processed food train! I don't always succeed with my weight loss plans each week, but that is okay. I now know this.
I just keep practicing each day.
This is me at age 14. It is the only picture I have on my computer at ~155 pounds and 5`7". This is an example of what a loss of 100 pounds would be for me. ( Yes it is okay if you laugh at the dress)
