I have been overweight most my life. In college I was in the best shape I have ever been in (until now :) ). I can't say how much I weighed, because I never did weigh. When I got married I slowly started gaining weight again. After my 2 children, I was up to 222 pounds. I decided I had to do something to change. I started eating healthier and exercising everyday. I've now lost 70 pounds. I seem to be at a plateau. Most likely because I only have 20 more to go. I am working hard to get ...
I have been overweight most my life. In college I was in the best shape I have ever been in (until now :) ). I can't say how much I weighed, because I never did weigh. When I got married I slowly started gaining weight again. After my 2 children, I was up to 222 pounds. I decided I had to do something to change. I started eating healthier and exercising everyday. I've now lost 70 pounds. I seem to be at a plateau. Most likely because I only have 20 more to go. I am working hard to get off the plateau and get busy losing the last 20 pounds. I look forward to being under 150 pounds. It is wonderful to see how my clothes fit and to know I can continue to be healthy. My weight does not define me like it used to. It is simply a part of who I am. Losing the last pounds won't be easy, but I need to lose more body fat to be healthier and help my body to be stronger.
On top of the never ending plateau, I am having bad back pain. A herniated disk will do that. I have had treatment, but it isn't doing much. I have decided to do exercises to strengthen my core and back muscles. I will continue to eat healthy, but I will start exercising more. I will not do things that hurt my back so some of my favorite exercises are off limits for a while, but that doesn't mean I can't walk or swim which I love. I just have to get back to it. I can't let the pain stop me, but I can't ignore it and let it get worse.

SparkPoints: 40,327

Fitness Minutes: 9,078

My Goals:
My current goal is to lose the last 20 pounds to reach my "healthy" weight. To do this, I will exercise at least 30 minutes 5 days a week. I plan to continue to try new healthy foods and incorporate the ones I like into my food. I plan to eat fruit and vegetables because they taste so good. I also plan not to beat myself up if I don't get in my exercise. I plan to simply do my best.


My Program:
I am not eating out as often. I am eating more fruits and vegetables. I am exercising at least 30 minutes 5 days a week, and keeping in touch with friends throughout the process. I try not to eat fried foods anymore because they tend to give me a tummy ache now. I have been trying new exercises and new fun activities. Hoola Hooping is so much fun.
To get my veges and fruit in, I will buy more veges I can take to work and eat for snacks. I will prepare them over the weekend when I have the time and energy so I can take a snack bag to work each day. I will have fruits that I enjoy and all I have to do is wash. This will help me to get the fruits and veges into my diet so I don't forget about them.

Personal Information:
I have a wonderful family, and great friends. I love to read and write even though I rarely finish anything I write.
I currently work as the secretary at our church and I love it. While at times I miss teaching, it is a lot less stressful and I have more time with my boys (except in the summer).

Other Information:
My family means the world to me. I want to be healthy so they will be healthy, and I want to be around for years to come so I can enjoy my family to its fullest.

I felt connected to you when I read your article because your story is very similar to mine and I have 3 boys. Been called lazy as well.

I added you as a friend because you're an inspiration to me and I want to surround myself with inspirational highly effective lifestyle changers!

Hi CRYSSYBUG, I just discovered your sparkpage and since you started at about the same weight I was at, it was rewarding to see how close you are to your goal. If you can do it, I have hope. My problem is the lack of exercise, but as you say do it - if only for 10 minutes! Keep up the good work. We're all with you.
I haven't got a spark page yet, but will be working on it.

Thanks for commenting on my "Pity Party" blog. I appreciate the support and encouragement. I got lots of great feedback and it has given me plenty to think about and consider. One thing I know is that I will never give up on trying to reach my goal, even if I have to change my approach. Have a great day!

"Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark.
In the hopeless swamps of the not quite, the not yet, and the not at all,
do not let the hero in your soul perish and leave only frustration for the life you deserved, but never have been able to reach.
The world you desire can be won, it exists, it is real, it is possible, it is yours."
