In February 2011 I went to my daughters kindergarten orientation and realized I was the biggest mom there. I didn't want to be the "fat mommy" when she started school.
I decided that day I was willing to do whatever it takes to lose weigh... Read more
In the new year I don't make a resolutions I make goals. To me a resolution is a dream without a plan, so I prefer goals, this gives me something to work towards all year.

I logged in last night and realized that it was the first time I'd even logged onto Sparkpeople in about 2 months. Nothing big to report, just living. I've been steadily maintaining at my goal weight range, working on more muscle building and am... Read more
On February 8th I celebrated my 3 year maintenance anniversary. Since reaching my goal weight I have fear every single day that I would fail. Every morning I thought I would wake up and be 300 pounds again. Every morning I didn't wake up big aga... Read more

I totally caved, though probably not what your expecting. Maintenance is going great! What I've given in to is running races. For so long I've been totally against paying to run. I run for myself. I don't run to prove anything to anyone else bes... Read more
Occasionally I get down on myself because I weigh more than I did at my lowest weight. I find myself wanting to lie about how much I weigh. But I got to thinking, what not embrace that number. Wear the number with pride, be proud of the person y... Read more
