Well I am here because I want to lose weight....Big surprise. First off, weight has always been an issue for me...since I was very young....Though looking back at pictures of me, I was never really as fat as I thought I was, but being known as the "fat" sister, tweaks with the brain...And since I was young I have been on a "diet" of some kind or another...If it's out there I have tried it.

I started this whole journey about 5 years ago...first I got myself out of the house and off of the couch with Belly Dancing...then I did the South Beach diet...That worked for a bit, I lost about 40 pounds(I was just over 300 pounds at that time)...then I gained a bit back and really wasn't focused.

Then I heard about Spark People 2 and 1/2 years ago....and started my journey to a healthier me....and took the "diet" word out of my vocabulary. I got all the way down to 203 pounds...then I met the love of my life...and I am very happy...but, I put on about 20 this last year(too much going out and not watching what I ate)

So now I am refocused and want to take off what I have gained and get to the goal weight I set when I first started Spark People...
Much Luv and Belly Kisses,
Lana

    "Beautiful Woman Award! Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the wall 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"

    Hi

    I too am a Tribal Gypsy I loved your pics and stunning outfits. I am not very good dancer as my back is stiff but I am working on it.

    Have you ever been to the 'Raqs Brittania' events? The web site wwwraqsbrittania.com is worth looking at.

    Good Luck
    Liz
