Hello everyone and welcome to my page.
My name is Sandy/Sandra and I live in the Cayman Islands.

I joined spark people in 2013 and have been losing and gaining weight ever since.

I first joined Spark when I realised that I weighed 150 pounds, 30 pounds more than I had been most of my young adult life prior to that. When I weighed 120 I was attending university and was living a different lifestyle prior to joining the work force and when I started working at a desk for 7.5 hours a day and eating bigger meals and more of them compared to broke college days where I went to school and slept a lot the new lifestyle meant more weight being put on.

My clothes were uncomfortably tight and I didn’t feel comfortable in my own body so I made changes to my activity and diet and the pound went off and I aimed to be back down to my original weight. I never got there but I did lose 20 pounds and then months later as I became complacent and lazy or busy I gained it back, dropped again the cycle continued with me hovering between 130 and 150.

Update: I am currently the heaviest I’ve ever been (157 lbs). I did a half-marathon last December where I gained 10 lbs during training and then never lost the weight because I was injured and gained some more weight because of bad eating choices. I have started back trying to build back an exercise habit and writing in a food journal. I am focusing on loving myself and being kind to myself and ignoring the scale as this will lead me to building a healthier mindset and lifestyle.
