Hi! I was here in 2009 (as you can tell from my name) and had good success with SP. Went from 190 to 170. Then, I was in the 170s for the longest time and just complacent with my weight. In May 2011 I got pregnant (yay!) and at that time the scale read 184.

Fast forward- January 1, 2012- our baby boy arrives. Awesome! the scale on the day I had him was 224. On the day I came home with him, 211.

On March 4, I joined Weight Watchers- I was 204 and within 3-4 months I got down to 175.

Since the autumn of 2012, I've gained and lost the same 20 lbs. Ranging from 180 to 199.

Update in March 2016- Back down again and tracking on MyFitnessPal. Was at 199.4 on January 4 and down to 185 here in mid-March 2016. It's a frustrating journey and I want to say to anyone and everyone how important consistency is and learning from past mistakes. I hope 2016 is the year I get down to 150! I feel like it is, but I look at my account here and see the pattern!

My Goals:
Starting again January 2016. Highest weight on January 4 of 199.4. Goal of 150.

March 15, 2016- Current weight 185.

My Program:
Monitoring what I eat (calorie counting, food journaling), making exercise a part of my daily routine.

Tracking and being consistent is key. 1-2 lbs a week and slow and steady will win the race.

Personal Information:
"This is YOUR journey. Don't look back. Keep your goals in front of you!" ~ a random quote I saw here on the message boards and I just had to repeat!

Other Information:
I love movies, books, music and the arts. I wish I was a jock- maybe one day!

I have a wonderful husband, son (born Jan. 1, 2012) and two fur-kids, my Boston Terrier Raylan and a cat Daphne.

I'm a journalist and graphic designer, currently working as a Communications Officer and spend my free time playing with my family, writing, working out, reading, watching too much Netflix, cooking and of course, sparking!
