A great place to be!

I've been a member of SP for 7 years. I joined when I was a unhappy married mother of 1 toddler girl, and weighed close to 230. At the time it was my highest weight and I couldn't stand it. I ended up loosing about 30lbs before getting pregnant with my son. after him, I lost a ton of weight with breastfeeding, but of course, didn't keep it off.

I'd go back and forth on SP, Had another baby, At one point joined a Gym, but while I loved going to the gym, I ate crap and didn't ...
I've been a member of SP for 7 years. I joined when I was a unhappy married mother of 1 toddler girl, and weighed close to 230. At the time it was my highest weight and I couldn't stand it. I ended up loosing about 30lbs before getting pregnant with my son. after him, I lost a ton of weight with breastfeeding, but of course, didn't keep it off.

I'd go back and forth on SP, Had another baby, At one point joined a Gym, but while I loved going to the gym, I ate crap and didn't really loose.. so I quit going assuming I wasn't loosing despite going to the gym almost everyday, and figured there was no point in keeping it going. The day before New Years Eve, I found myself taking breaks to climb the stairs in my house because I couldn't breathe and decided to get on the scale,

243 stared back at me, and I decided it was time to do something about the weight.. once and for all. I wouldn't see 250.

that was 9 months ago. 9 months ago I was in a size 22 (and that was 90% sweat/yoga pants because those 22s were tight but I refused to size up)

I couldn't breathe going up stairs, and I stopped carrying my youngest anywhere really because I just couldn't anymore. I was unhappy with how I looked. I was severely depressed. I really hated life most days.

I decided it was time to fix it. I had to. I couldn't keep going on like this.

After that first month, I had lost 10lbs, and I haven't looked back.

This week, I saw something Amazing on the Scale, Something I never thought I'd see again..

198.2.

Onederland Was always my Major Goal, not my Ultimate, not the Final one, But always ALWAYS the thing I tried for. The major goal that when I hit it, I knew I'd make it. these last 10lbs before wonderland were the worst. The hardest. It's always been 1 step forward and 2 back since january, but it's taken forever to get rid of these 10lbs. And I did it.

198 means I really will make it. I will see the finish line. I will change my life.

I already have.

I'm now wearing a 16-18.

I play with my kids.

I carry Levi up the stairs.

I can run up those same steps.

I enjoy Hiking.

I still hate Running. lol

I Enjoy Exercise. (Jillian Michaels Rocks!)

I Feel Healthier.

I've learned that I don't have to eat garbage to survive, that I actually like "Healthy" foods.

I eat fruit and veggies everyday, and I still have treats every once in awhile.

Most of all I proved that I can do this. To myself. and I think that's the most important thing. Can't wait until my BMI is just a overweight instead of a Obese! (which should be in the next few pounds!)

Thanks for looking at my page. Stop in and say hi. :) Glad you're here! Keep pushing and trying. You will make it!
