Welcome to Spark... and to this team!

Congrats on the weight loss so far... you're doing a wonderful job! It never comes off as fast as we want it to... but don't give up... the journey is worth the end result!

Try breaking up your goals into smaller 5% mini-goals, and that will give you something to focus on that's a little more easily attainable. I find that this really helps to make the journey not seem so long...

GOOD LUCK reaching your goals!!!

My name is Arlene and I am 42yrs young; a mother of two and a wife. I have had weight issue since I was a teenager,but it got worse once I got married. My weight sky rocketed to 345lbs; I was eating out of depression and boredom. I have lost 70lbs and have a long way to go. I would say my biggest issue is getting frustrated with the weight not coming off as fast as it I think is should; this has been a long gruelling process. I am tired of giving up because I don't see the results that others say they see in me. I am my worst enemy when it comes to my weight, but I am working on just being happy with who I am. I want a healthier lifestyle at this point, no more blood pressure pills and the ability to walk up steps without feeling like I am going to fall out (because of asthma), but I believe I should still be able to walk up stairs without having to use an inhaler.
