Baby had back!

Hi there! I'm Danielle- a 28 year old living in Green Bay, WI. Over the past three years my life has really begun to thrive. I lost 93lbs in a year and have either maintained or lost a bit more over the next two! I read about this site in a People magazine article about people being half their original size. That's my goal.

I started my journey at 300lbs and after one full year I lost 92.5. Now I am living with my wonderful man, Josh and we're growing together in our health ...

I love to run, so that's what I've been doing!
______________________________
Here's my story:

I went to my annual appointment, and weighed in at 300 lbs. Holy ****! I had gained 25 pounds since the year before, which was partially due to my termination with cigarettes. (11/19/09)) My best friend and I always joke about being bigger, and I have always had good self-esteem (I got lucky) but she on the other hand wasn't so lucky. I have half my entire boy weight to lose.

When I meet my goal my friend and I will head back to Las Vegas so we can bathe in the sun (confidently), Walk down the strip (without difficulty), fly on a plane (comfortably), and have ourselves am amazing time (happily).

***UPDATE***Change of plans! We are thinking about Universal Studios/Disney Trip now instead. I want to see Harry Potter World, and Universal has plenty of clubs/bars to party at. Not sure yet, but it will be a $1500 trip minimum!

I am following the old weight watchers program- maybe I'll check out the new program soon. It seems a lot more involved.

Any workout advice, Weight Watchers suggestions or anything else you want to share is well appreciated!!

UPDATE: 2/5/13
Well I've signed up for a half marathon. Never in my life would I have thought I could even attempt walking one. Now I'm following an 18wk schedule and May 19th is the big day! It's great for weight loss too ;) Check my blogs for updates!

SparkPoints: 12,287

Fitness Minutes: 13,295

My Goals:
Ultimate goal weight= 150lbs. But really I just want to be comfortable, fit, happy and confident.
I am 5'4" with a large body frame.

I want to run a 10K. DONE, TWICE

Next Summer, a half marathon. DONE- killed it

I want to run a 5K in under 25 minutes- working on

I want to run an 8 minute mile. - havent tried yet!

I want to tone up this extra skin and lose even more of the fat in me.

I want to see how healthy I can be.

I want to keep my life as awesome as it has been. Losing weight helped me find who I am and the life I want to live. It also found me a great boyfriend in the process ;)

My Program:
I began Weight Watchers program October 13th, 2010. I am sticking to the Lifestyle Change motto. I use SparkPeople as my main motivator- i could not have come this far without it. I do use my fitness pal to log exercise and nutrition- so much simpler, especially on my iphone app.

I have begun to run outside a lot more and am absolutely falling in love with it. I realized that treadmills are liars and I run 5K at about 10:40/mi. Working on getting a great time for 10K!
