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.)

    Thank you so much for stopping by and commenting on the quit post. You're so right, and I'm glad you found that answer for yourself. It can't be a diet, it has to be a lifestyle for it to stick and stay gone.

    Hey hun, thanks for stopping by my blog! I'm always happy to hear from you! What I meant was that I thought in the past that losing weight would mean I would be able to find love, become a mom, be less shy, get out more, etc, but in my depression I started to think it'd never happen even if I did reach my ultimate goal weight so I just gave up. But through addressing my feelings I learned that I don't have to wait to be thin to improve my life in those areas, and so opened myself up to dating and living life in the now. It's a work in progress but I'm so much happy for it.

    I love your page btw, it's really inspiring!
