Third Times The Charm, right?

Hi. I'm Lori. I'm from Wisconsin. I have six children, and one grandchild. :)

I didn't always have weight issues. As a teenager, I was thin and in shape. I was very active. It wasn't until I had my twins in 1995, that I started to struggle with addictions to high sugars, and Pepsi. But I lost the weight, and I became thin. But when I had my last child almost 10 years ago, my weight issues started again. :(

Hi. I'm Lori. I'm from Wisconsin. I have six children, and one grandchild. :)

I didn't always have weight issues. As a teenager, I was thin and in shape. I was very active. It wasn't until I had my twins in 1995, that I started to struggle with addictions to high sugars, and Pepsi. But I lost the weight, and I became thin. But when I had my last child almost 10 years ago, my weight issues started again. :(

I have to take MY life back into my own hands, and get myself healthy again. I tried doing it for me, and have failed multiple times. This time it's for my children and grandson.

The last couple of times that I tried this new healthy lifestyle, I lasted 3 weeks.

10/27/13: Gained 2 lbs back. :( But today marks EIGHT MONTHS since I've had a soda!

6/19/13: Lost 3 more pounds. Another week and it'll be 3 months since I've had a soda.

5/30/13: Lost another pound. It's been 3 months since I've had a soda on the 27th. Woo hoo!!

5/15/13: Lost 2 more lbs. Very happy with myself. Makes for a total of 12 lbs.

5/5/13: Tried drinking carbonated water, and I almost threw up. Makes me realize that I'll never be able to drink soda again. What a great feeling to be rid of something that was controlling me. I'm proud of me! :)

4/19/13: Another pound gone. I'm at a 10# loss. My reward is to color my hair. Hmm... What color should I go with?

4/11/13: Lost another pound. Making it 9 #'s lost now. :) It's been almost seven weeks since I stopped drinking soda. Yay!

4/8/13: My depression is getting the best of me. No weight lost since 4/1. I'm thinking it has a lot to do with my depression/anxiety, and my little "friend". Will keep plugging along recording everything I eat.

4/4/13: Dug the measuring tape out finally. Lost an inch in my hips and waist. And then half an inch on my thighs.

4/1/13 : Lost another lb! :) This feels so good!

3/27/13: It's been one month since I've had a soda. Woo hoo!
I've also lost another 2 lbs. Making it 7 lbs lost now with Sparkpeople.

3/21/13: I've lost 5 lbs with Sparkpeople.

2/27/13: My first day with NO soda
