Back for Round 2. Hoping for a Knockout

***Update - April 16th, 2014***
Life is crazy and so is weight loss! It is one of those things that if not closely monitored can become weight gain, and THAT is where I am at. I weigh in at a hefty 233.2 lbs today, 18 lbs above my lowest weight of 215 lbs. Why did I gain weight? I was tired of focusing on it, I am enjoying being a newlywed, I started eating treats and fast food and kept doing it, and I didn't work out as often. With that being said I am not disgusted.

Life is crazy and so is weight loss! It is one of those things that if not closely monitored can become weight gain, and THAT is where I am at. I weigh in at a hefty 233.2 lbs today, 18 lbs above my lowest weight of 215 lbs. Why did I gain weight? I was tired of focusing on it, I am enjoying being a newlywed, I started eating treats and fast food and kept doing it, and I didn't work out as often. With that being said I am not disgusted. I am glad that I have the mindset to check it before it gets out of hand. And now I have a new goal: to get pregnant! My hubby and I have decided that when I release this 18 pounds of weight gain, that we will try for babies! So I am refocusing my efforts to regain my health and my fabulous jaw line by eating well and exercising more.

***Update - October 7th, 2013***

I am Mrs. Brown now!!!! YAAAYYY! I had every intention of being 200 lbs at this point in my journey. I have actually gained 7 lbs from my lowest weight of 215. I am disappointed but not discouraged. I am enjoying being a wife and I am regaining control of this wacky weight-loss train by joining Weight Watchers.

***UPDATE - May 24, 2013****

Well it has been one year and I have come a mighty long way! A year ago my initial goal was to get to 200 lbs by this date. Instead I chose to live a healthy AND happy life, focused on living while dieting and exercising. I managed to lose 56 lbs and for that I am very proud! There were times when I was discouraged with my progress, but I never quit. Every other attempt in my life, I quit at when it got too hard. This time I stuck it out and tried something else rather than quitting all together. I have had amazing support and I am looking forward to marrying the love of my life in a little over 3 months. At 216 lbs, I am hoping to step on the scale on my wedding day much closer to Onederland!

***UPDATE - Feb 16, 2013***
I have been at this weight loss journey for 9 months and have lost more weight than I ever had before. These 54 pounds feel like a 100 to me. It has freed me from so many health issues, given me more confidence and also made me EXTREMELY tired! I am trying to keep the momentum but with working a second job and preparing for my upcoming wedding, I am exhausted. I originally had a goal of 180 lbs (92 lbs loss) but at 218 I am comfortable with losing 20-25 more pounds and moving into maintenance. I hope to be at that maintenance point by my birthday of July 4th. Wish me luck!

**UPDATE - Oct 21, 2012***
It has been exactly five months since I got my spark back and jumped back on the weight loss rollercoaster. In these five months I have went from a 22W to a 14W and have lost 38 pounds. I have ran a race every month since July and I can now run 4 miles without stopping. I have finished my longest race, a 5-miler in 1:05:38. I am proud of that. Currently I am experiencing a three week plateau of no weight loss. I am disappointed but I am encouraged knowing that I still feel the spark inside. I am going to re-evaluate my current plan, switch up my routine and get tighter on my nutrition.

May 21, 2012
This is my second go around with Sparkpeople. The first time around I lost almost 50 pounds and gained a ton of confidence. Unfortunately I got comfortable and some issues from my past pushed me back to a place I didn't want to be. Food tagged along. I have worked through most of those issues and want to gain my confidence back for the second and hopefully last time. I turned 29 years old July 4th, 2012 and I intend to go into my 30's fit, fun, flirty, and fabulous!

Do you think there's a spark friends double tummy tuck discount?! That would be amazing!! ;) :D We are so Spark twins!! I just want to be able to maintain for a while before I do it, plus to take off all the week for work I want to save up some more sick/vacation time. I was reading on one thing where you can take 2 weeks off work, and some go back to work before that. PUHLEEZE. I want to be off like 4 weeks for sure, maybe even 6. Not because I am a baby but #1 I work in a place where there is no windows in the building and when one person gets sick, EVERYONE gets sick, and I don't need that. Plus, heaven forbid I get an infection or something isn't healing properly then I want to already be off work.

And you are a genius! I never thought about a compression TANK. I just didn't want to be in a full body shaper because I pee so much, TMI I know. But a compression tank would be perfect especially with my jeans since my jeans usually hold the bottom part in place lol. Thanks for the tip I will definitely be getting me some of those. :)
