My name is Sylvia, and I want to lose weight so I can feel better about myself and to just be healthy..I am truly tired of being at this weight...I am 5' and weigh 220 ..My BMI is 36 therefore I am considered obese...I definitely hate that word. I have been working out 6 days a week and plan on making this a part of my everyday routine....... My true inspiration is the Lord.. I could not do this without Him..I have been praying to Him about changing my thoughts towards food and for Him to keep me motivated to work out...He has truly answered my prayers...I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me....Without Him I am nothing...Praise God! November 2009 had back surgery and I have now gained all my weight back. I definitely need support from my sparkpeople friends. June 7,2011 putting the excuse of my back behind me and am ready to start all over again to reach the goal I intended to reach in the first place. God is my strength so I will be praying everyday for His wisdom and strength to help me with this ongoing task of making this my lifestyle... I am so glad He is A God of Mercy and Grace. I have made a commitment to myself to get into the Word whenever I am craving something I shouldn't have. So off I go to a new me. Had second back surgery, but plan on getting back on track. Its been a long road but i will not be defeated!
