2015 Update: Job stress, planning a wedding, family drama, and being happy with my husband all led to me gaining a lot of weight in 2014. I''m aiming to get back on track in 2015. April 2011 I had a reality check. I was 25, single, overweight, and not happy about it... so I started to change. After I lost 40 lbs I found SparkPeople and it has kept me motivated to lose more! As a treat to myself I had a brachioplasty in August of 2012. The revision surgery in December 2012 made my left arm fantastic... but the right one -- not so much. its all healed now and I wouldn''t change a thing. I was aiming for 150 when I started (I''m 5''10") but I don''t think I''ll be able to really get there. I''m pushing for 170 realistically, 160 hopefully, and 150 delusionally. http://shrinking-sara.tumblr.com I have a gallery of my progress pics here: http://imgur.com/a/6EoIg

Member Since: 8/8/2011

Fitness Minutes: 29,466

My Goals:
Always drink at least 15 glasses of water a day (I'm usually good, but sometimes it slips...)

To be a "oneder" (aka--under 200 lbs) by the end of the year. **Accomplished 12/11


My Program:
I'm eating smart. This doesn't mean no chocolate and only veggies though. I try to balance my calories and meals while eating healthy 85-90% of the time.

I spend a lot of time on my core doing situps and using a balance ball to help prevent my sciatica from coming back (when you have sciatica at 23--you've got issues!). I also try and walk fast on my treadmill a few times a week on at least a 5% incline.

    I read your page and it was like reading my own! haha I also gained after planning a wedding and then getting married. I didn't believe anyone when they said married people get fat together. Well I was wrong lol! My husband and I are trying to work together to get fit by the summer. I added you as a friend, hope that was ok!
