Sure thing. I tried on a 44 size jeans. Not there yet but working on it. I though I had some 46's out there but have to look.

Lobo, you should hold on to the 'skinny jeans'. At the rate you're going, I'm sure you'll be needing them!

well, the follow up is in 2004, but it's a different show...like "body make-overs" or something.

I have one...Having your pants rip 3 different ocassions where you I was a godparent standing up in front of everyone. It always seems to happen when I was getting into my car. I would have to stand up during the ceremony with legs really close together and not moving till the mass was over.

I was on an Oprah show called "Goofy, yet charming at times. Don is sooo great." Okay I'm just kidding, but I had a dream like that.

Anyhoo, I realized that needed to lose weight when I would reach under tables and I was straining. Like it was uncomfortable to crouch down and grab something that fell. It was a very strange feeling not to be as flexible/comfortable doing things I had done all my life.

Well, I found some clips of a "Stacey Halperin" but not sure if that's from the same show or not.

I started my first pregnancy at 268-270 lbs. 6 weeks after having my little one, I was back down to 268 lbs. (that was mid-March 2007).

By Jan. 2008 I was weighing in at 288 lbs. on the hospital's scale, when I took my Mom to the ER because she had a blood clot in her leg (actually in her entire leg)--we knew what the problem was, but the quickest/easiest way to get it treated was to go through the ER, since she hadn't seen the local doctor yet.

My home scale when up to 290 lbs., but it was at that point that I realized I needed to do something--it was the most I had ever weighed and I REALLY didn't want to go over 300 lbs. Also, I weighed more than my Mom that day (although she hadn't eaten very well for a few days, since she was struggling to get around with the pain, but still--I weighed more than her).

So I got online and started to look for an easy way to calculate where I was at (fat-wise) and where I should be (recommended weight type thing). I was looking for a BMI calculator and some random forum said that SparkPeople had one.

I came to SP and saw that it was free to join, but didn't see the BMI calculator. I figured that I would have to be a member to use it, so I went ahead and signed up.

Been "stuck" here ever since! emoticon SP has really made the difference, and (probably) a lot of it is the community--I made friends here and just don't want to leave, and that really helps me stay in tune with the me that needs to get into shape, even when I'm not actually working towards it and/or not able to (since I'm now pregnant with little one #2). And it's been super helpful to have all the great info, so that I know what I need to work on and where to get started.

At what moment did you realize that you had to lose weight. Was it trying to fit into that dress you loved all those years ago or a doctors visit? Let us know.
