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. =)

At the bottom of the community feed, click on more. It comes up in a full window, and on the right are feed filters. Click on people I follow, then after that comes up, look at the top of the feed for a box under the title "make default filter". Check that and it should come up with the people you follow on the start page each time after that.
Hope that helps!

It's just that the whole social media thing can get overwhelming. I keep very few friends on here, because I really have enough going on on other platforms. This is the last place I want to be hammered with a bunch of stranger's profiles! I don't care either. I just want to see who I know.

thanks Andrea. I hear you about losing your dad. Mine died in 2013 and it is still really hard. Thinking of you.
