100 pounds lost and gained

10 years ago I started to lose weight. I had hit an all time high of 225 pounds and was 21 years old. I knew I was missing out on life. Guys would hit on my friends, but not me. I thought I looked like my friends, but when I got pictures developed I realized I was twice as big.

I hit rock bottom during my year abroad in Russia. My host mother told me i could chose, to eat what I wanted and look the way I did or to take control.

I hit rock bottom during my year abroad in Russia. My host mother told me i could chose, to eat what I wanted and look the way I did or to take control.

I counted calories, took up running (starting 3 minutes at a time) and eventually joined Weight Watchers. I lost 100 pounds in 2 and a half years.
I never believed that maintaining is as hard as losing. I believe it now!

So I've seen 225, 125, 145, 175 and last year and 40 weeks pregnant I saw 208. Right now I'm just under 200 and I feel every pound. I need to do this for me, for my knees, for my back, and for my family. I need to remember that nothing tastes as good as being thin feels and I want to feel that again real bad.

I wish everyone success and happiness. Don't take for granted the Spark Support!
