Growing up, I was a skinny kid. I started to fill out in high school, and although I wasn't skinny anymore, I was at a good size. Then came college, marriage, motherhood and the weight kept sneaking up about 5 pounds a year. By 2000 I was over 200 pounds. When I peaked at 212 (about 2004) I joined weight watchers and got down to 172 lbs. I made the classic mistake of thinking I could do it on my own. So, gradually the weight came back and after Christmas 2009, I hopped on the scale and was at 198. I know I didn't want to ever see 200 again and I didn't want to spend the money to rejoin WW, so I searched the web and found SparkPeople.
