Congratulations on your 20lb loss! I am so excited for you! I too have a reunion in 09, it'll be my 20th, I've never been to any of my previous reunions and my weight is one of my issues, I've let this problem hold me back long enough! Again, I am so happy to hear your good news!

I need to lose 10 pounds 17 (170 lbs) times....That works in my head....My first goal will be 10 lbs.
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!
