I Am A Fighter, I Am A Warrior, I will Not Give Up Or Give IN!!!!

Hello and welcome to my page. I started out here on SP weighing 205 in September 2011. I wanted to lose 60 in a year. Well I lost 20 pounds by the end of 2011 with adding exercising and eating more fruit and vegetables. Now I feel I can lose the rest with time and effort.

I am married to a very supportive man and with his help I think I can do this. I love to cook and he inspires me to make low cal meals.

Hello and welcome to my page. I started out here on SP weighing 205 in September 2011. I wanted to lose 60 in a year. Well I lost 20 pounds by the end of 2011 with adding exercising and eating more fruit and vegetables. Now I feel I can lose the rest with time and effort.

I am married to a very supportive man and with his help I think I can do this. I love to cook and he inspires me to make low cal meals.

I challenge myself to make better choices to become stronger healthier and a better person. I find that pushing myself to be healthier every day is practical. I use steaks to motivate myself.

In 2012 I started to slow down with my weight loss, I was not eating right. I was exercising more but ate about the same as when I was not trying to lose. So I would try to stay on track and some days I did but some day I was off. I Started paying attention to what I ate and stayed on track more I lost 16 pounds in 2013.

September 2013 marked the start of year 3 with Spark People, I have not been doing to well staying on track but made up my mind this would be the year to do better.

July 2014 I am more determined then ever to get rid of this weight. I have talked to my hubby and asked for his help in this fight of being over weight. He is going to help me in any way I need and together we will lose weight and get healthier!!

September 19, 2014 marks 3 years with Spark People I have lost 45 pounds so far and learned to love exercising. I walk most every day and do strength training 3 times a week. I am improving how I eat and staying in my calorie allotment for the day. I look forward to getting healthier and healthier every day.
