Part Two for real:

Like 95% of people I gained the weight back. I am divorcing from a 28 year relationship and I lost my thyroid to Graves disease. You know life, that thing you get while you are making other plans.

So I've returned to Spark where I last felt my inner invincible self. I'm putting one foot in front of the other; humbled by the graciousness of the Spark friends who have welcomed me back and cheer me on.

Part One:
I LOST 80 POUNDS SINCE OCT. 2008. 50 POUNDS SINCE JOINING SPARK PEOPLE IN MARCH 2009.

Spark People aligned with all my best intentions and choices and gave me the tools and support to get done!

I am Done being overweight!
I am Done being the fat girl!!

Because I got:
Done laying on my butt!
Done overeating!
Done not working towards my goals!
Done making poor choices!

�Big thank yous to all the Spark People who have helped and encouraged me because you show me that even without full understanding I can achieve my goals.�
I cannot possibly repeat this enough.

Truthfully, I cannot imagine what my life will look like at my goal weight.

I didn't imagine this for myself. I've never been this small as an adult. You can achieve your goals even if you doubt. Never give up and surround yourself with positive Spark People.

July 15 2016 goal: weigh 192.

My new goal is to lose the 50 pounds I gained back and then maintain a healthy weight range: 140-145.


My Program:
Working on portion control and exercise. "I'm on a low-crap diet and a get-off-your-butt exercise plan."

    I love that photo of you in New Mexico! Awesome!

    We're headed to Botswana for a photographic safari...so I won't be online..I'll be on lion instead. (hopefully not In Lion!)

    Congrats on losing another pound. You are really whackin' those babies right off your bod... excellent dedication. I'm sure your clothes are lots looser and you're really noticing the difference. That's the exciting part.

    I'll miss you and look forward to catching up again in a couple of weeks. Take care & have fun! emoticon

    Ahhhhhh, you are my very own Jiminy Cricket...whispering in my ear, "Read Deborah's message on the inside of your eyelids: "Moderation". How can I be so lucky to know you & have you as a friend?
    Unfortunately, I just read your message after walking 3 miles..but I DID walk slowly & broke it into segments, if that counts for anything. Your message helps me remember priorities: Is it more important to lose 4# by 9/16 or to avoid knee surgery and 3 months of recovery? Even a butterfly could answer that question.

    Thanks so much for for caring & your encouragement.
