Update March 12, 2016
I have reached an all time high of 211 lbs and I feel absolutely horrible- mentally and physically. I NEVER ever thought I would be in the 200s wearing a size 16 in pants. 2016 is my year for change.... permanent change. I am excited about what this year is going to hold for me!

Update 10/3/12- I have been on SparkPeople for almost two years. I have lost weight, only to gain it back after I stopped doing everything that helped me to lose the weight. This time around, I am more determined than ever to actually reach my goal weight and keep it off for good.

Jan 2011- I have struggled with my weight for what seems like my entire life and I am ready for that struggle to end. I want to be healthy and fit. I want to be full of energy instead of exhausted all the time. I also want to be an inspiration to my daughter.

My starting weight with Sparkpeople was 164 lbs (I am 5'6). My highest weight has been 180 lbs. My lowest weight- 127 lbs. I want to be somewhere between 130-135 lbs. I guess I will see as I get closer to my goal.

My goals for 2012/2013

1) lose 20-25 lbs (I want to get back into my old jeans). I want to do it the healthy way, a way that inspires other women
2) find exercises/activities that I enjoy
3) learn Spanish. I started off strong but haven't been practicing lately.
4) get a promotion at work
5) establish a relationship with God
6) confront/deal with issues from my past

I have my work cut out for me, but I want this to be a productive year.

    Hey... to answer your question... NO, I was not always an active person. Well, active in that I'm a mother of 5 and they always kept me busy but as far as EXERCISE... never. I don't like it, I never did. But I learned over the past couple of years that I have to do it if I want to keep losing weight and staying healthy. It's the only way I'm going to keep these 175 pounds GONE and finish losing the rest. After you get started and begin seeing the results, it motivates you to continue. I'm doing weight training at a gym and I love seeing my shape change and my muscles develop. It's exciting! The best thing you can do is switch it up sometimes so you don't get bored. If you can workout with a buddy too, that helps a lot. Good luck and thanks so much for your very sweet comment on my page. It feels good to know that people are proud of me. emoticon

    emoticon Greetings and emoticon

    Happy New Year and congrats on taking the first step to reaching a healthier you! I'm glad you're getting active with SparkPeople - it's a great community, wonderful resources and fantastic support.

    Please check out the SparkTeams - I think you will find a lot of others 'just like you' there. You can choose SparkTeams by age group, lifestyle or interests, geographic location or several other ways - in fact, I suggest joining more than one group, post your intro there and write blogs as often as you can - you will find tons of friends and support that way, I promise!!

    In my experience, SparkPeople is like a emoticon in some ways - it's lots of fun and easy to make friends because we're all in this together. I like the way a HEALTHY LIFESTYLE is emphasized instead of a 'quick fix wonder diet' - it's about waaaaaay more than 'just' losing weight so you have definitely come to the right place!


    If you ever need any help using features of the site, there are tutorial videos under the HELP section that can show you how to use the features of the site. You can also find them on the START page and several other places on the site.


    If you haven't discovered The Spark book and/or the SparkDiet linked at the bottom of the START page, check them out - the program is simple but extremely effective. There is a TON of information on this site - so much it might even seem overwhelming but fortunately we don't have to 'digest' everything at once! The FastBreak program is a good way to start.


    Another nice thing about SparkPeople is that we have permission to be human - we don't have to change everything at once or be in a hurry to reach our goals. Take a few baby steps and then a few more and before you know it, you'll have completed a long journey - I hope you enjoy this community as much as I do - it teaches us how to make positive lifetime changes because that's the only thing that will work over time!
