Hello! I've always struggled to lose weight! it's been a constant battle and issue for me emotionally and physically since I was about 10. Every time I've ever intentionally tried to lose weight, it starts with a small fast drop, then a quick gain to above where I started, and then my body stubbornly tapers off and refuses to budge!! So. . . needless to say, at my highest weight EVER I was filled with more than a little trepidation at starting this process. But here's the other side, I've ALWAYS said that what I really need in order to be successful is someone in my home who can track what I eat all day and tell me first, when to stop, and second, what to eat now. Imagine my delight when I discovered the tracker on spark people! I've also always wanted someone to tell me how many calories are in my favorite recipes, major WOOHOO moment when I discovered the recipe calculator! I've been a member approximately two months, and I'm down about 23 lbs now. some weeks it's slower, some weeks it's faster, but I'm able to enjoy my favorite foods, I'm losing weight, and I feel better!! And I know this is just the beginning of my journey! I will win this time. I will win for a few reasons, first, because my sweet husband (I married just over a year ago) deserves to have a healthy energetic wife, second because I want a family, and If I'm going to bring a baby into my life, that Baby deserves to have a healthy energetic Mommy, and third (and perhaps most important) because I deserve to have a healthy, energetic life! So, Here we go!!

    HI! Saw your post in the 30's group! :) My son Lucas is 10 months old he'll be a year March 21st. I've nursed him since he was born no formula at all and only bottles for a month or so. Are you still around 245 lbs? I'm right above 250 lbs but I started this year at 270 lbs. I'm on Facebook too and have started a group called the Healthy Ninjas I'm trying to get girls to get active and check in there too because I think it helps you stay focused and determined to have partners doing it with you even over the computer!
