4 weeks into the program, Feb 6th 2012. 222 pounds
One year later with the same clothes. This is what a 50 pound difference looks like.

Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
CAKEMAKERMOM is a SparkPeople Motivator!
I got rid of 50, maintained it for two years, then fell hard. I know I can lose it because I did it well before. It will be gone within the year!
I've had excuses before, I even had legitimate ones. I got rid of the clutter in the house, the medical issues in the family, the credit card debt and the toxic apartment. I no longer have excuses.
I control my vitamin D deficiency with supplements. I have a beautiful park with walking trails in the backyard, I have some active video games. I have 2 school aged kids I need to be healthy for.
I won't let excuses rule my life, every excuse can be overcome. An excuse is just a challenge to figure out how to do something different.

Restarting tracking for some months until my brain is wired to remember portion sizes and can handle "just one" cookie, slice of cake, etc.
I'm a Minnesota mom of 2 school aged kids with a helpful husband that hides his junk food if it comes home.

Just wanted to say hello and thank you for your faithfulness. TRYING to get in the routine of SP because when I do, it works! Remembering that for it to work, I have to. Like your story, excuses will always be there. I'm looking for the reasons.
Have an awesome day.
