Intro from my 1st 5 years here:

More than simply weight loss, I''ve learned that what is important is strength, endurance, and feeling well. Being consistent matters more than number-based scale goals. In the long-term, those numbers do say something, (though each one is a tiny corner of a snapshot):

2008: More than 375 lbs
(My doctor''s scale didn''t go higher than that.)
2009: Jan - 274, lowest 238
2010: Jan - 244, lowest 241
2011: Jan - 275, lowest 243
2012: Jan - 250, lowest 245, highest 259
2013: Jan - 245, lowest 243, highest 275
2014: Jan - 272, lowest *, highest 304
2015: Jan - 294, in progress
2106: Jan - 295

I''ve fought depression since I was a child, and had many victories. I will re-read my previously written words (below) and find my way out of the darkness again.
The only way to do it is to confront it directly and STAND UP for yourself. Find what you like in yourself, in others, in the world around you. Find what you ENJOY in your journey instead of what you DON''T. The power of your own thoughts are more uplifting or destructive than ANY outside forces. Draw your strength from your spirit, from your God, or from your family. No matter where it originates, it will pulse through you and you will just beam! And you can use that beam to focus your purpose on your wishes and dreams. They CAN come true!


"A man is but the product of his thoughts.
What he thinks, he becomes."
Mahatma Gandhi.

YOU can/will do this, and *I* can/will do this!

It''s the little things that make life so enjoyable, and I''m greedy and want them all! HEhehee...I made my initial plan HAPPEN: I CAN keep up with my nephews, AM able to tie my athletic shoes while sitting in a chair with arms, and DO have more energy, just to start.

What makes a breathtaking sunset more enjoyable? Having the strength and energy to stand and watch it. Or better yet, stroll along the beach while gazing out over the Pacific Ocean (without back and knee pain or getting winded)! That''s also what makes SHOPPING, getting the mail, spending time with friends, heck, even DUSTING (daily living) more enjoyable.

I''m not just working to lose the pounds-I want a FIT lifestyle, a FIT body, and a FIT mind. And each day on Spark gets me closer to my healthy lifestyle ideal. This is permanent. With each new boost of energy, I''m closer to having enough to clean my house! ;)

My SparkPage title ("Dreams so real they grow wild on the vine...") is from a Fastball song, and I added it here because there were so many things that I had locked away as a child, and before SparkPeople. They were like seeds. Seeds of the person I longed to be, and the things I yearned to do. Being a DONE GIRL ~waters~ those seeds, ~thrusts~ them into the soil, ~feeds~ them nutrients to keep growing, and they DO. They grow and bloom and burst forth MORE seeds to again be nurtured and grown themselves. *I* am growing as a person too.

BMI Review
As much as I disagree with the BMI numbers (especially between normal & overweight), it''s still satisfying to slip down the categories. Here''s the wild ride & a link to a great article:

-Start (375 lbs) BMI Super Super Morbidly Obese (64.4)!
-BMI Super Morbidly Obese (under 59)
-BMI Morbidly Obese (under 49)
******Current* - 245 lbs *****
-(next one is Severely Obese when I reach 232 lbs)

Long time NO see! I have been off here longer than I have been on here and your comment, I do believe, was the last(well first) on my page when I recently revisited. I am ecstatic to see you having success. You are an inspiration because you have been where I am and truly understand how hard it can be. I hope that I can be as successful! emoticon

Hi there!

I didn't focus on my plan and my well being all summer, and I have seen the negative results from it, I recomitted, and Re-evaluated what I did wrong, and what I need to do.

I am excited for some positive changes in the future, and I hope you are doing well too!
