I am trying to lose weight so that I can get close to my high school weight. I am not proud of what I let myself get to and have not had the will power to change my appearance. I haven't wanted any of my old high school friends to see me like this nor people that I worked with in the past. I used to always tell myself that I would never let myself get to be like this and I am worse than what I said I would not become. If I don't like myself, how can anyone else like me?

To have a friend, be a friend.

I am DONE being the fat girl.

I am DONE letting food run my life.

I am DONE not carrying about myself.

I am DONE feeling sorry for myself.

I am DONE letting other people influence me.

I am DONE letting other people make me feel guilty.

I am DOING this with my daughter and together we can accomplish anything, because we are STRONG women.

Sounds like me and the commitment I've made to myself to start a new life style. My journey started 6 years ago. I was at my heaviest, 301. I needed knee surgery but my doctor told me to go loose 100 lbs.

I have been a dieter all my life. I was a chubby kid. I was normal size in high school with a big butt and thick thighs, 130 lbs. I hated myself.

I'd give anything for that now. But, I'm working toward that goal. As a matter of fact, I set my goal at 125 just for the insurance indexes.

I've lost 95 lbs in 6 years. 40 lbs with Weight Watchers. Took off 2 years and yo-yoed between +7 - +10 lbs. Found SparkPeople and lost 60 lbs in almost 2 years.

I'm pumped up. Glad to be your Spark Friend!!!

You're doing great. I'll keep up with you.

Thanks for the message! I added you as a friend. You have been here a while and that shows consistency and I see you are working on reaching your goals too, good for you!
I am trying to catch up today on spark people, doing my tracking and responding to folks who comment on my page.
It is definitely snowing outside with the classic NorthEaster going on but not super cold , so that is good! I hope everyone is staying safe and warm if you are in the regions that are cold and safe if you have a bad storm going on.

Just sitting here chilling. I have done pretty well on my nutrition goals this week so far, just have to tweak it a bit here and there.
