I had Weight-Loss Surgery in 2005 (after reaching my highest weight of 315 lbs), and lost about 140 pounds (down to 175). Unfortunately, I got into some really bad habits and regained about 60 of that. Clearly, I needed to get back on track. I joined Spark in 2009, but it took a couple years for everything to come together.

Currently, I have lost about 80 lbs since August 8, 2011. Ultimately, it's been about eating less and exercising more, but the devil is in the details. I write down everything I eat, and track it on sparkpeople most days. I have made exercise a priority, and actually enjoy it now!

Eventually, I want to get down to 155 and have my BMI under 25.

    Hi Fellow Warrior!

    Stopping by to WELCOME you to the 8-Week Battle #5! Hope you are up for a CHALLENGE!

    By joining up to participate in the battle, you are making a commitment to yourself and teammates for the duration of the competition. You are committing to setting goals and using the powerful force of community support to reach those goals. This is the 5th 8-Week Battle and each battle has proven to be very successful for many Sparkers!

    That's right - the most important ingredients in your diet should be "support" and "motivation." With these two things combined, your chances of remaining committed and reaching your goals are much greater!

    Jump right in and get battle ready before you begin! Look over all the "Sticky Topics" and get familiar with your battle field! If you are new to the Battle, make sure you read all the information listed under the “General Team Discussion Forum”. Each team has a team “Lieutenant” who well help answer your questions and provide with you support. Your Lieutenant will contact you soon.

    Did deep and find your inner warrior – prepare for Battle! Battle begins August 10th!

    “Try not! Do or do not. There is no Try. Yoda!”
