I originally joined spark people back in 2006. I've left and come back a couple times now, but am here for good now until I reach my goals.

I restarted my journey in July 2014. I had just been in my sister's wedding and was shocked when I saw the pictures. I weighed in at my highest - 230lbs. I had been ignoring the scale, and brushed aside my bridesmaid dress size, but you cannot ignore family photos - it was my wake up call! Since then I've been making better food choices and exercising more often.

I am currently at a 40+ pound weight loss. My next goal is to reach an overweight BMI at 185lbs/ 20% weight gone at 184 lbs. I'm almost there! The ultimate goal is to reach a healthy BMI (top end is 154lbs).

This time feels different, I am excited to see what I can do!
