Determined to get it off and keep it off!

I joined Sparkpeople in March of 2004, at 192 lbs, 5'8". I successfully got down to 166 lbs by August 2004.

I kept it off for less than two years and then it all came back on and more. Again I lost another 30 lbs for about two years and then it came back on again plus a little more. At one point I was up to 215 lbs!

I just started again January 1, 2014 at 206 lbs. my goal is 160 lbs and to keep it there this time.

I hope to get it right this time ...

I am so happy for you - saw that you are down to 10 lbs (or less) to go! I was there, and I let it go - I guess I got complacent...yep. So, I am at my heaviest in forever, and it feels rotten...and gross. And I got on the scale last Monday and after I picked my jaw up from the ground, I decided RIGHT THEN AND THERE to start recording what I eat again. I don't ask myself for perfection, but to get up when I knock myself down by not sticking to my plan! And I'm recording it all - good and bad. And mostly, it's GOOD. So, I feel better, have more energy already, and have started exercising regularly again. I had been randomly walking, but this past week, I went to the gym 2 days, and walked 2.5 miles another. Today started a new week, and I have plans to exercise more and after this week, I hope to be feeling stronger and to begin lifting weights again! Anyway, keep in touch :) And keep that positive attitude! :)

Hi Susan!

It was great to hear from you!! I am so glad that you are back on track and are sticking to it! You go girl! You sound like a women on a mission!
That's too bad about the penguins...don't get too down about it though...there is still the fabulous Steelers!!!!

I have not been on this site in ages...I had a bout of eating and eating and eating...I gained all that I had lost back! My husband could tell I was so upset, so guess what? He got me a personal trainer! I am in my 3rd week with the training, which I do 3x's a week with an hour of hard core training and then I run my treadmill on the opposite days with Sundays off completely. The trainer has also helped me immensly with my diet. I have lost 10 lbs in 3 weeks!!! This time I really am doing it the right way! 24 lbs to go! I will say I am sooooooooo sore though! It is all worth it!

I'll be here cheering you on! We are both going to be hot mommies this summer!

Amy

Hey! Checking in on you - hope all is well! Did you ever try going to a Weight Watchers meeting for support? I love them - I have been going faithfully every week since April 2006. I will admit - I have had ups and downs, but I think I would have had a lot more DOWNS if I didn't go. Hope all is well!

Hey, I'm here to get back on track and am hoping we can support each other! How are things going? It's been a while. I am fed up with my skin again too, and am still considering going for the Proactive. Anyway, just wanted to say hello and encourage you to start posting with me again! Hope all is well. :)
