October 2008
I have been on this weight loss journey since Janury 2008 and have lost 50 pounds. I have just recently found SparkPeople and thought this would be a great place to help me lose the last 20 pounds. This is the closest I have ever been to my goal weight! Currently I am losing about 5 pounds a month so I hope to begin 2009 at or very close to my goal....

December 2008
When I found out I was diabetic I weighed 240 lbs. I lost 65 pounds right away and was able to control my blood sugars with diet and exercise. That was a few years ago. This past January with blood sugars slowly creaping up, and about 25 of those pounds back on I decided it was time to lose those pesky 25 plus even more! When I reach my goal I will have almost cut my size in half. That is amazing to even imagine as I type it.

January 2009
Almost exactly one year later and only 1 pound to go! I still have to do a double take when I catch sight of myself unexpectedly in a mirror or my reflection in a store window. I am not the same person I was almost 112 pounds ago!

    Over a year ago your update said you needed to update your page! haha!

    Are you doing this year's Iron Girl in November? I could wait until I accidentally run into you again, like every year, but I don't want to miss you. :)
