Hello, I'm Limdur. I joined Sparkpeople back in August of 2011 (I have kept my story of when/why I joined on here down below). Since then, I have moved out of my parents' house, gotten married, and fell off the fitness and healthy eating bandwagon along the way due to feeling like I didn't have enough time, lots of personal loss and stress.
I am renewing my efforts at getting back on track and taking care of myself again. I gained 21 pounds from my lightest while I was on here. I would like to get rid of those 21 pounds and possibly another 10 so that I can finally be in the "normal" category for my height. But if my body is happy at 145, where it seemed to coast for about a year or two, I will be fine with that too.


August 2011
I had gotten to my highest weight of about 215 lbs. last summer (at 5 foot 2 inches tall). Had a doctor telling me that I needed to watch my weight, lose a bunch, and that my blood pressure looked a little high for my age.

So, I decided to start losing weight. I would go to the gym at college with a friend, but as the classwork piled up, I stopped going. I was still able to drop about six lbs.

At January of this year, I found that I had lost more weight, bringing me down to 191 lbs. However, the summer happened, and with summer came traveling and some unhealthy food choices. After hearing about this site from someone, I decided that it was time to commit and make a change. To become healthier and happier.

    Hello , Yes You Can Team,

    Currently we have a team goal tracking miles walked or ran. Is there anyone who rides a bike or stationary bike, or uses an elliptical. The goal doesn't allow enough characters to include stationary bike, or cycling.

    So, please track all miles accumulated, under the Walk/Run 3 miles a week. Just respond and let me know if you are a use stationary bike or other equipment that tracks mileage so I can give 2 SPARK goodies in 2 categories instead of one. I can see leaders for all team goals so there will be a WALK/RUN leader and a CYCLE/TREADMILL leader.

    We want EVERYONE to be free to participate and be awarded for their achievements!

    Keep Sparking,

    Carla emoticon emoticon
