*******update**** 5/12/10 --- arrrgh!!!!! I have gained all my weight back so here I go again. I have no one to blame but myself. It happened so fast... first I stopped eating as healthy.. but since I was still working out I was maintaining... then I got that birth control shot in dec and my eating healthy was a total thing of the past and working out was history too... I was so ashamed I refused to go back to my gym until today. I am starting all over again. And I plan to use sparkpeople all the way!!!!!!!

8-28-09 I have lost 42lbs since 3-22-09!!!!!! I am very happy about it... I have met some of my smaller goals and I see that I want to do more than just lose weight... I want to build muscle too!!!! So this is just the beginning!!!! I am reading Burn the Fat Build the Muscle and I plan to use this program to lose more body fat and build up my muscle!!!!

Living by Design ... God's that is in 2009!!!!

Hello SP ...my name is Andrietta and I am determined to become healthy and lose weight in the process. I have a beautiful daughter who is 6 and I want to be in her life as long as possible. My mother passed away at 41 due to health issues and I refuse to let that become me. This page is my accountability so I know where I have been, where I am and where I plan to be.

I am not big on losing my weight extremely fast because it didn't come on that way. I have never been skinny and I don't plan on it now. I just want to look good and feel great for me.

I work out at the gym 5 - 6 days a week. I do strength training everyday but I rotate body groups between upper and lower.

I follow the Weight Watchers Flex points plan...but I don't attend meetings. I have in the past but now I just get my support from elsewhere. The best thing about weight watchers to me is ... not giving up anything. This is a forever change and I don't want to feel like certain foods are forbidden.

    That's great that you are doing it slowly but steady. I'm sorry to hear about your mom. I have an 11 y.o. son and I know all about wanting to be around to see some grand children.

    You are doing fine! Keep me posted. I will check on updates from you too. emoticon
