I joined Spark during my first year of graduate school, back up to 170lbs after a lifelong struggle with my weight. I set my goal at 130 (lighter than I had been since elementary school) and set on my way. I have fallen off the wagon a time or two on the now year and a half long journey, and had my share of set backs. But, I reached 135 back in November for the first time and realized that if I lost any more weight I was going to look like Skelator.
When I realized that I was slowly killing myself by not eating and the deprivation was probably to blame for my binge eating, I left Spark to try to develop a healthy relationship with food on my own. Unfortunately the binging continued, I stopped exercising, and now I can't wear even my fat jeans from last spring. So I'm back, ready to try to beat binge eating disorder as best I can with the support of my Spark Friends.

My latest reward schedule:

150lbs: new hubcaps [goal date: 8/31/10]
145lbs: pedicure [goal date: 9/21/10]
140lbs: kitchen knife [goal date: 10/26/10]
135lbs: prescription sunglasses [goal date: 11/23/10]
Maintain through 2/1/11: designer jeans

My Goals:
I am headed back down the scale towards my goal weight of 135 for the third time now. I know I can do it, I've done it before. But my real goal, now is to build a healthy relationship with food so that I can maintain a healthy lifestyle for good. I want to control my binge eating and keep fitness a part of my life no matter where I go.



My Program:
I have been counting every calorie for so long it almost seems strange not to now. I make it to the gym at least 5 times a week for cardio and am starting to try my hand at the strength training machines too.

    Hi Ya, saw you on the message board (fears about getting thin) and wanted to stop by. I did my BA and grad school in California since we were living there at the time, and I was so thin in those days! Since then, after teaching at my college for some years, and having 3 children, I gained weight and it has been so hard to lose it. I am here if you want to chat, and I'll cheer you on all the way (can you hear me cheering!) Have a good day, Cheers, Danni (in Taiwan now with my husband and the kids, but maybe coming home next year.)
