Lessons I have learned:

-Life is tough but you have to keep plugging away.
-Never stop trying because when you stop trying is when you fail.
-Log your food!
-Exercise is important to a healthy lifestyle.


I was at my lowest weight of 124 pounds in 2007 since beginning my journey of managing my weight. We started trying to get pregnant and I began stress eating (I had many years of infertility which is the reason for the big gap between my kids). I shot up to 145 by the time I got pregnant in 2009.

I was at my all time highest weight in March of 2010 after having my baby girl (177 after water loss) but I didn't mind because I knew the baby was healthy. I lost 38 pounds from working out and watching what I ate then got a new job in September 2010. Since then, more than a few pounds have crept back on.

    Thank you for commenting on my blog! Every journey starts with a single step. Baby steps. Progress instead of perfection. Insert some other cliche here.... But seriously, you really can do it.

    Kathy! You are awesome!
    I knew that when I came back to Spark, there would be so many people, like you, ready to support me in my new goals.

    I rejoined Spark thinking it would be safe at this point to do so. I've had some trouble with a stalker, and wouldn't you know it, as soon as the restraining order expired, she started up again.

    I don't think I'm going to be able to continue at Spark because she stalks me online as well as off. I made my page private, but I think she's actually on my friends list here. I think she might have made a fake profile and so I don't know which profile is hers and which are my actual Spark friends.

    I'm just leaving Spark (facebook, and every other on line thing) again. One day she might really go away and then I'll be back.

    Hang in there Kathy and know that I didn't forget about you, no matter how much time has passed.
