Update! Last time I was on Sparkpeople, I made my goal weight! It was awesome! But I just got married a couple of weeks ago, and all of the stress involved led to some serious stress eating. I didn't gain very much (just about five pounds), but I feel bad about my body. So now I'm going to try to follow my time-tested pattern and lose 18 pounds! That will put me at a BMI of 21.3!

I've been off and on Sparkpeople for several years now, and each time I've lost about 20 pounds, only to gain 10 back later. Well, now I'm starting again with only 10-20 pounds to go 'til my goal weight, and I'm very excited! I've been overweight since puberty, and I've only been as skinny as I am now once before in my life. That's why my goal weight is a 10 pound range! I honestly don't know where I'll feel my best because I've never been thinner before. With every pound I lose, I discover new curves that have been covered with fat. I'm really excited to get into the "healthy" BMI range within the next couple of weeks and, once I'm there, start trying to figure out what my ideal weight should be!

Because I've done Sparkpeople before, I'm making a special goal this time around: participate in the community. The last time I tried, I just ignored the entire 'community' section, but I've been reading a lot of posts lately, and am really reassured and inspired by them.

    Hey! Congratulations on getting married. That is a huge milestone.

    I havent been on in a while either. I started a new job and am barely able to keep up with tracking, but I am consistently losing weight and making exercise a priority. Working so far... lost 5 lbs in the last month at my job. :)

    How is life treating you?

    Hiya Aly, emoticon on the beautiful wedding. You looked so beautiful and the groom looked so happy. Where did it take place?

    I am so glad to see you back on SP and with only 18 pounds to your goal weight I am sure you will be there in no time.

    I see a new team on your page Getting Fit Before Baby, so is that in the works? How wonderful to have such plans and married life is just the very best.

    We just had our first grandbaby in June and her name is Hope Marie, she was born in the UK of course that is where DH is from and all of his family are still there. We are hoping to go out in the early Spring of 14 to see everyone. I am so excited.

    I see you friended Courti, she is a blast and one of my very best friends. Feel free to look through all my friends and add any you would like. There are all great gals.

    Okay off to do some catching up. Is it a holiday today where you are? If so happy Labor Day to you.

    Hugs, love and blessings,
