I'm Traci. I'm 42 years old and TIRED OF BEING FAT.
On May 24, 2008, I weighed 241 lbs. That's the largest I've been in my entire life. I hated every single picture of myself and I was tired all of the time.
I exercised religiously for nearly a month before I stumbled on SparkPeople. It wasn't until I started learning about proper portion sizes, eating fruits and veggies, drinking water, etc. that I began to see results from my workouts.
To date, I've lost 20 lbs and I'm so excited!!
I have a 25 year class reunion in 2009 and don't want to be fat when I go. The last reunion I attended was in June of 1994 - two months after the birth of my second child - and EVERYONE looked at me as though I was a circus freak. They actually walked up to me and said, "Oh, Traci, I would have NEVER known that was you!" while looking me up and down with disgust. That reunion was on a riverboat and I was trapped. I was miserable and couldn't leave. I will NOT put myself through that again. I'm going to look GOOD or I won't be going.
Anyway . . . I look forward to getting to know all of you. Welcome to my journey!
