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

You are the recipient of the Beautiful Woman Award!! emoticon

Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the page of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out!

Again, Congratulations

I found your page in the Success Stories section and I just wanted to drop by and tell you just how inspiring your story is. My first year on Sparkpeople wasn't the biggest success in the world, but I'm still at it.

Seeing and hearing about someone else's journey...it gives me so much hope that it's a path that I can walk, too. Maybe slower than some people, but something I can still accomplish.

Thank you so much for sharing it!
