I am 40 years old and for the last 10 or so years I had been overweight.
I would love to blame that on three pregnancies in three years, but in all truth I was steadily gaining weight years before my first pregnancy.
I have lost the same 20+ kilo at least three times with fad diets, only to gain it back when I would start eating "normally" again, but no more!

I started losing weight in April 2013 but noticed I was getting less motivated in summer. But then I found ...

I started losing weight in April 2013 but noticed I was getting less motivated in summer. But then I found SparkPeople!
Since September 2013 I have been committed to changing my life style and exercising 3-5 times a week and eating healthy within my calorie range. Except for the weekends, when I might eat a bit more.

I love to eat!
I eat when I am happy and when I am sad or angry.
But I have come to realize that I also love to feel fit and healthy!
I really feel this time I can keep the weight off.
I have lost around 23 kilo since April 2013 (6 of which before I joined SP) but gained another 6 in the last few months.
I have a healthy BMI (more or less), but am finding it difficult to start maintaining and not have a goal.

So I just signed up for a marathon on 19 October, which gave me a good reason to lose these 6 kilo again and get even fitter than I was.

I did run it, and it was great, but I did not lose all the weight I wanted to, nor was I as fit as ever.

So I will have to find a new goal to work towards, to keep me going.

I have learned I cannot do it all at once. But I can do at least one thing every day to make an effort to be healthy.
"Success is the sum of small efforts, repeated day-in and day-out." ~Robert Collier
You are doing amazing. Being in the top five for team fitness minutes is inspiring!
Continue to make small efforts every day and it will all add up to success! Together we can do this!!!
