I used to be really active on here and then about 5 years ago when I loved I actually forgot about this website until my best friend reminded me of it last night. Still have about 55-60 pounds to go before I hit my “goal” weight #BeforeAndAfter #CentralIL

The last 5 years have been a journey to say the least. The last time I logged into this page was right before my mom passed away suddenly in August of 2015.

Since then I have had gastric bypass surgery, lost 195 pounds, celebrated my 10th anniversary, became an official Autism Mom, returned to work for the first time in a decade, regained 50 pounds, and started our official homeschool journey.

It’s been a long 5 years of many ups and downs but one things for sure I have missed my community I had here on SparkPeople. So as a commitment to myself and my best friend I am back!

As things continue to change, they also continue to stay the same. SparkPeople helped me out get started on my journey to a better life so I know it will continue to motivate and encourage me.

Member Since: 1/17/2013

Fitness Minutes: 2,553

My Goals:
Lose the final 60 pounds on my road to 200 pound total loss.

My Program:
In the past I have found the best program in calories in vs calories out and after all is that what every doctor is going to tell you anyways?

Sparkpeople tells me I need to consume between 1630 and 1980 calories every day. It also shows I should exercise 180 minutes a week burning at least 1100 calories a week. I have NO IDEA what that will look like for me but I do know if I continue doing it the way "I know" I will continue getting results "I have" so this time I am going to do the way someone else tells me to.

Personal Information:
I was born in 1985. I am an only child born to 2 amazing parents who both suffer from morbid obesity as well as other health conditions as a result of their weight and issues with food. I married a man who was my whole world and have since realized neither one of us can be everything for the other but rather we are partners in this journey. I am a mother of an amazing daughter who was born in 2011 with some breathing problems. She is doing amazing now but she does have some special needs.

Other Information:
2 Corinthians 12: 7-9
Proverbs 31
Psalms 121 : 1-2

    Thank you for dropping by my blog, "...Attitude Adjustment Needed." I do find the BLC a serious challenge but it keeps me on the straight and narrow. Sometimes better than other times but the accountability is good for me. Looking forward to seeing you around next round. I know there are people who have tried several different teams before they found the right match for them. Hopefully, you'll find the encouragement and support you need next round.

    Someone said that you can't achieve perfection, but on the way you can gain exceptionalism.

    Thanks for your visit to my page! I do plan on getting pictures and measurements this week at exercise class. Im not going to like it but I know seeing the numbers and then watching them all go down will be great!
