HOLY CRAPOLI I'VE LOST 93 LBS WITH SPARKPEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
NOTE: I've lost 93lbs with SparkPeople and have lost ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTEEN POUNDS total! As of August 28, 2014 I am working on maintaining that loss.
My name is Andrea, I'm 35, married, so far childless and looking to lose some extra pounds! I don't want to be a stick, but I want to be healthy, and I don't want to be plus-sized anymore. I'm aiming for an 8 as an ultimate goal, since I've never been thin enough to wear a 8, and it's a single digit, woot woot! (I'm currently in a 10, and if the 8 I wear is a pair of stretchy pants I'm totally cool with not going below a 10.) ETA June 2014 - I currently own a SIZE 8 pair of capris!! ETA November 2014 - I also own a size 6 in dress pants! ETA Sept 2015 I have several pairs of size 6 things!
I have a wonderful husband and a 5 year old Boston Terrier named Bingley who is like my child. (No I don't walk him in a stroller or anything, but I love him just as much as I would my own child.)
Start - 253 - 4/4/12
240 - DONE 6/19/12
225 - DONE 8/30/12 (technically 225.3 but I'm counting it)
No Longer Obese (213.9 lbs) - DONE 11/11/12
210 - DONE 11/29/12
195 - DONE 4/3/13
180 - DONE 10/26/13
170 - DONE 3/2/14
Ideal - 160 - DONE 8/29/14
I'm tracking my nutrition and exercise via SparkPeople, and using my FitBit to try to keep an average of 8000+ steps a day, plus intermittent strength training. I swing, baby! (Kettlebells, that is.)
I was born and raised in South Jersey, just outside of Philly. I've been up and down the East Coast and abroad and I still love my state. Judge not a state by it's Turnpike. =)
I believe in equality for all people: men, women, whites, blacks, asians, hispanics, gays, straights, transexuals, transgenders, etc. As long as you don't try to take MY rights away or try to cram your beliefs down my throat, we're cool. =)

Oh, no to the walks! It's not at all safe to walk around here, haha. I've cut my fooding back a little to compensate.

I am 100% certain that your husband has the best lunches out of anyone. ;) I have decided that I am going to 'try' (try being the key word) to having a lazy day a month. We will see how that goes. It did really help!

I got pushed into it by my dentist! I've never had trouble with mine. I'm terrified. I normally can't even go for a checkup without Ativan. Should be interesting.
