Nearing the finish line...

Update, August 2015: Hello, everyone! Thank you for all of your kind comments. Almost 10 years since I began my quest to become healthy and I'm still maintaining a nearly 100-pound weight loss. At this point, I don't track regularly and I typically run 2-5 times a week, but I''m going to try and make the push for 170, so I'll need to get back into game mode. :)

-------------------------------

I joined a gym in late November 2006, and started SparkPeople in the beginning of January 2007. I lost the first 50 pounds very quickly and 30 more after going vegan. I''ve avoided all meat and dairy products for about five years now, and I feel great! I''ve been maintaining 190 pounds for over two years. I''d like to burn another 20-30 pounds and build some muscle.

I wrote an essay that is now featured in SparkPeople''s motivational articles section! I have it listed under my favorites if you want to check it out. :)

Hi

Thank you for sharing your story on how you found your spark. I must admit that I have read it more than 5 times, each time I do so, I get reinvigorated when I am in a slump. It has inspired me more times than I can recall.

I am now 15lbs from my ideal weight, and the journey can be lonely, but as you mentioned, you had to make sure you were doing it for you, for life, as a lifestyle. That too has been my focus, and I am glad it is working.

From the comments page I see that I am not the only one inspired by your story. I hope many others discover that it is not dieting that helps in the long run. Once again, my profound appreciation for your sharing.
