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!
Move into the Overweight BMI (185lbs)
My ultimate goal at this point is to get into the "healthy" BMI category which is under 154.

Hi from the Calling All Canadians, DONE Girls, and Fat=Funk Fit=Fabulous teams!! I'm turning 27 this Friday and am also in Ontario. My husband and I went through the whole separation/immigration emotional roller coaster until it ended with me becoming a Canadian resident. Hope you don't mind me adding you as a friend!
