Meghan Lost 115 Pounds with SparkPeople!*

By , SparkPeople Blogger
Meet Meghan Sheen (PUNKROCKCOWGIRL), a SparkPeople member who has lost 115 pounds! Find out her secrets of success here.

What is your age?

I am currently 27 years old.

How long have you been a SparkPeople member? How did you find SparkPeople?
I found it via a friend on a forum who joined, and she got a bunch of us to join, too. There are only two or three of us left. That was in October of 2010.

What is your favorite feature on SparkPeople?
The Nutrition and Fitness Trackers. I use those the most!

How much weight have you lost?
115 pounds from my recorded highest weight.

How long did it take to lose the weight?
It took nine months to lose the bulk of it.

What was your ''light bulb'' moment that made you decide to lose weight?
I had been avoiding getting my picture taken and I finally got caught in one—I realized just how big I was.

What was your biggest obstacle while trying to lose weight?
Negative people.

What does your weekly exercise schedule look like?
Two or three days a week of gym time and cardio around my neighborhood a little each day.

What is your favorite way to exercise?
Hiking, or walking the dogs.

Do you have any personal fitness goals coming up?
Trying to lose the last little bit of weight. I'm looking forward to getting to my goal and maintaining.

What does a typical day of food look like for you? How does this compare to the way you ate before your transformation?
Oatmeal, spinach salads, yogurt and chicken are my staples, and I drink teas and low-calorie drinks as opposed to soda. Before, I ate a lot of fast food, Starbucks and other junk.

What is your favorite healthy food?
I like chicken pretty much in any form, and spinach.

What is your favorite treat food?
I have a thing for black licorice.

Who is your biggest inspiration?
Not any one person, but looking at the SparkPeople success stories gave me hope.

Do you have a personal mantra/saying/quote that you live by that you'd like to share?
''It's never too late to be what you might have been.''

Does Meghan inspire you? What healthy habits of hers can you use in your own journey?

*Weight loss results will vary from person to person. No individual result should be seen as a typical result of following the SparkPeople program.
