Since you are all MY Sparkfriends, I feel like this post might be a little unnecessary, but at the same time, good for documentation. And I really would like for other people I don't know yet who you might all know to join as well, so spread the word and introduce yourself/tell your story here!
My name is Jenn. I joined SP in April 2010 at 313 pounds. I lost 100 pounds in a year, and then 30 more, and then I plateaued and switched my focus to training for the Chicago Marathon. 9 months of training and I didn't lose a single pound, but I have now run that Marathon and want to refocus my energy on getting another 50 off. I'm just going to concentrate on 10 pounds at a time and have changed my ticker to reflect that. I want to see the 170s so bad it hurts, so I am bound an determined to get over this hump and keep moving! I know I am in a place in my life where I will NEVER go back to being 300 pounds. But I also don't want to stay at 180 pounds, despite how fit I am now and how great everyone tells me I look. There is more to do here and I want to find it! But I need help, and that's where you all come in. Because you know my struggles, have had struggles and successes of your own, and are still here. Props to that!
