Breaking Free From The Bondage Of Obesity~ My Journey From 271 lbs to 135 lbs!

July 27th, 2007- I SNAPPED! I had reached my highest weight (271 lbs) and I was sick of being fat. It was then that I made the commitment to change my life. Over the next two years I lost 136 lbs and am maintaining my weight loss well today. I do struggle with gaining and losing those last 10-15 lbs so my ultimate goal is to continue to make wise decisions in how I treat my body and soul. I work hard to stay active and eat healthy. I try to use moderation with all foods that I love.

July 27th, 2007- I SNAPPED! I had reached my highest weight (271 lbs) and I was sick of being fat. It was then that I made the commitment to change my life. Over the next two years I lost 136 lbs and am maintaining my weight loss well today. I do struggle with gaining and losing those last 10-15 lbs so my ultimate goal is to continue to make wise decisions in how I treat my body and soul. I work hard to stay active and eat healthy. I try to use moderation with all foods that I love.

I just ultimately want to feel healthy, comfortable, and at peace within myself and in this world. I've had a lot of ups and downs during this entire process of losing weight, and I feel like I'm a stronger person because of the challenges I have faced. But I have a challenge ahead. It's been 5 years since I went on that first real "I'm going to do this" diet. And now I have to learn to live a healthy life and keep the weight off forever. I'm looking ahead and anticipating more challenges. I'm here on Sparkpeople because I know I'll find the help, support, and encouragement that I need to keep this journey going.

So I commend the enjoyment of life, because nothing is better for a man under the sun than to eat and drink and be glad. Then joy will accompany him in his work all the days of the life God has given him under the sun. ~ Ecclesiastes 8:15

Hi there! I saw your story in the success stories section and just wanted to drop by and say that you are really inspiring!

I'm just starting out on my journey (it's my first week here at Spark) and I have similar weight loss goals. Reading how you did it makes me think I have an actual shot at doing this.
