My highest weight was 142. I only weighed 139 when I was 9 months pregnant 29 years ago!
So I knew I had to do something.
Diabetes runs in my family. I definitely did not want to start going down that raod.
Sparkpeople has shown me how to adjust my calories.

(I'm 5'8) but it still showed ........

Being a naturally (healthy) skinny child/teenager (size 0 and sometimes size 1) and being able to eat like a horse and never gain an ounce was just my life..

Once married and expecting at age 21 (gaining 65 lbs in 9 months) was a real Life Changer for me!!! The beginning of a life long battle!

I came out of the hospital a size 12 and had to wear maternity clothes 4ever bc we lived pay check to pay check, especially as a young, new family!

From there I went up...up...up.. and then that was the 90's FAD DIET CRAZE and lost weight and even reached a size 8 and was happy with my new weight and shape.. (nice/balanced curves)

Didn't last long of course! Diets NEVER work!

Grow through what you go through.

You have 3 choices in life: give up, give in, or give it all you've got.

You may blame your job, your family, or your circumstances for your distress, but the reality is how you perceive anything in life is entirely up to you.

My highest weight ever was 142. I am 5"6 1/2, petite frame but yet I was gaining a pound or two a year and I didn't want to wake up one day with more than 20 pounds to lose. I was at 142 and down to 135 now. As long as I am in the lower weight range for my height I'm pretty happy; being on the higher end means I feel a little less energetic and strong~

My highest weight ever was 195. I seriously cried for days after I saw that number on the scale and banned anyone from posting any pictures of me anywhere. I will NEVER go back to that place (body or mind). 35lbs down and counting now. :)

I honestly don't know. I stopped weighing myself at 145, but went up one pants size after that. Never want to be anywhere near that again; that is obese for my height (5').

My highest weight was 286 I had gotten that big because it was easier to eat what ever I wanted than to watch what I ate and become healthy after trying various weight loss plans that didn't work for me I decided that the weight loss wouldn't happen until I made a commitment to myself and when I did that it started working I have fallen off the wagon a couple times during holidays and gained some back but I have no intention of breaking that comment meant I made

My technical highest was 184, however that was when I was in labor (yes, I stepped on a scale while in labor. I was curious) and lost 15 of that just by giving birth.

Other than that, 172 pounds, which prompted me to get on SparkPeople back in 2009. I hated how I looked, how I felt, and was tired of looking at all the beautiful clothes in my closet that no longer fit me.

My highest was 234 (size 16) in 2009. Started trying to lose weight in 2010. I got down to 168 last spring, but I've gone back up to currently about 175-178 (size 10). I want to get to 150, but lost my motivation.

I will not complain about aging because we have no control over that, but, none of us should allow our bodies to decay/rot which is all voluntary. It is up to each of us to do three things: exercise, use good nutrition, and commit to something or someone that brings us joy daily for the rest of our lives. (excerpt from Next Year Younger For Women book). My new motto!

177 pounds. I weigh almost as much as I did when I gave birth to my nine pound son three and a half years ago, and THAT is unacceptable.

I am strong. I am focused. I am capable of greatness despite weariness and pain. I am determined and I am grateful. I have been bruised but not beaten. I have been battered but not broken. The person in the mirror is my biggest competition but she is also my greatest creation. I must mold her into something STRONGER. Something BETTER. Something that is HUNGRY for life. For winning. For victory. My eye is on the prize.
