I've struggled with my weight my entire life, and suffered from bulimia for years, when I finally lost a lot of weight at a very dangerous cost. When I entered recovery, I gained a lot of weight as I was teaching my body how to eat again. I've come a long, long way in the last 5 years, and began my weightloss journey all over again, the HEALTHY way, in November 2005. I've lost 60 pounds since then, and learned to LOVE exercise. Sparkpeople has been the VERY important last piece of the puzzle to me. I grew complacent after the first 40 pounds came off, and I NEEDED the help to lose the rest of the weight, once and for all. I finally feel like I eat to fuel my body and give it what it needs...and my emotions are not entwined with that process anymore.

Fitness Minutes: 24,239

My Goals:
I'm on the last leg of my weight loss journey. I want to continue to improve my overall fitness level, and lose my last little bit of weight to finally reach my goal!

My Program:
I work out 6 days a week, varying my workouts daily and changing them frequently to keep it fresh. I try to stick to my calorie and nutrition ranges daily!

Personal Information:
I'm Lauren, from Canada. I'm married and have two small children. I started working on my health and fitness after my father-in-law passed away at only 57 from an enlarged heart. It started out as something I wanted to do for my kids, so I would never put them through what I've watched my husband go through in losing his father so early from something preventable. But along the way, I have begun to value myself more too..and now I can happily say that I am also doing this for ME!

    It looks like you are doing fine, I hope you and your family are well. I don't know if you have Halloween (per se) in Canada but it is one of my favorite "dress up" day .

    I found some yellow pants, a hot orange shirt and a white hat that I will stuff with tissue paper. I will wear candy corn earrings and I think people will figure out what I am.

    Take care of you.

    Hey there,

    I'm jan from Virginia/US. You are doing so well, I thought I would give you a goodie. My grandparents on my mother's side were from Canada and I went to a French school in Lynn Massachusetts for 13 years, (I started in kindergarten.) My husband I went to Quebec for our 30th anniversary and I still could understand it. I left my verbs back in history, but I could understand and read the menus. I even watched The Simpsons and I laughed a lot. Homer in Canada doesn't do the "duh" quite right and Maggie doesn't do the sucking thing on her pacifier. I loved Canada and would love to go back.

    Take care of you.
