I've had a loooong journey that is for sure!! My name is Nani and I am a compulsive yo-yo dieter! I joined Sparkpeople in the end of 2007 weighting right around 200 pounds. After having my daughter in 2010 I reached my highest weight of 235 lbs!! I did the hcg diet on and off in 2011 and dropped to 187 in August of 2011. Fast forward to now and I sit here at 216 pounds. I've restarted this journey over and over and OVER again and I always manage to gain the weight back and I think it's because I have not found the root cause of WHY I'm over weight, why I over eat and why I continue to sabotage myself over and over and over again!! There are definitely emotional issues I have to deal with.

Why I want to lose weight:

My mother had weight loss surgery on December 5, 2012. She is not THAT overweight, only a few more pounds bigger than me, factoring in her height because she is shorter, but she has many health issues and I don't want to get to that point.

My daughter is only 2 years old and is already overweight and I don't want her to develop the same bad habits I have! Also I want to be able to do active things with her.

Member Since: 11/5/2007

My Goals:
My goal is to get to a healthy weight so I can feel more secure with myself, not have to worry about any health issues and have more energy to do the things I have yet to do! I want to be an inspiration to others like me that have a difficult time achieving their health goals.

My Program:
I am counting calories. I try to eat between 1300-1500 calories a day. Starting today 11/5/07 I am also starting an exercise regimen of atleast 30 minutes per day a minimum of 3 days per week, I will be increasing the time and intensity as I progress. I am also makinh sure I reward myself for every 15-20 pound loss!

Personal Information:
I was born in Bayamon, P.R. and moved to Orlando, FL at the age of 3. So, I am fluent in both english and spanish. I have a wonderful fiance who I moved in with this year and he has been the most loving and supporting man ever! If you would like to contact me you can e-mail me at
I am definately looking for weight loss buddies for motivation so feel free to contact me.

Other Information:
I am a BeautiControl consultant so if you are interested in skin care/spa products and want to have a free spa and earn free gifts contact me at or go to my website at

    hi Nani - we joined SP the same week, so we're on the same "Class" team, and I saw your page and thought I'd drop in and see how you're doing.

    Looks like you made a great start! I didn't even take any of this to heart until the first of the year. How's it going now?

    The "class" has two team challenges, and we could use your help. One is to lose 100 lbs together (and I didn't lose anything this past week!); and the other is to travel 500 miles together. You can convert minutes to miles if you do other exercises where that's a better measure. Please check it out and join us!

    Hope you are doing well, and that you enjoyed a glorious Mother's Day this weekend! emoticon

    Hey, good to hear from you, it does seem like we have a lot in common. I really like spark people so far, it's helping. I just joined about a week ago but I started watching what I eat in November and I've lost 47 lbs so far. I'm almost half way to my goal weight. I still wanna have some curves, but I wanna be healthy. Everything you've said about yourself on your page sounds a lot like me too. I'd love to offer whatever support I can to you, so if you ever need to vent or feel like your slipping, just drop me a line, I check in everday! You're doing great, keep it up!
