update May 2011 - I have gained weight and now my amazing boyfriend has become my live in trainer/nutritionist/bad guy who keeps me from eating too much =) I just know I'll do it this time. I have everything in the world going for me!

update September 2011 - I have now officially lost 15 pounds! I have NEVER lost more then 10 pounds at a time =) I feel more and more like I'm actually doing this. I'm taking things one pound at a time. Seriously. I can do this if I just stay focused on that one pound at a time =)

update November 2011 - I have reached the 25 pounds GONE marker! I'm staying steady with portion control and I'm starting to walk/jog as a consistent workout. I'm actually finding that I rather enjoy it! Probably because it's nice to get out of the house to work out. My goal is to get to 160 by Thanksgiving! I have 2 weeks and 4 pounds to go to get to my half way marker!

update January 2012 - So I reached my half way goal of 160 in December of 2011 and have since been hovering in the 162-160 range. I have not been motivated, but that's ok! My new moto is "The best way to start, is to just start!" I am sticking with this until further notice =) Lets everyone MAKE this a good year!

Update April 2012 - I have continued to "maintain" through out the last three months. Apparently I know how to maintain. And I know that I know how to lose weight because I've already made it half way. I took my extended break and now I'm back. Ready to fight the good fight. Ready to continue to change my habits =)

Update March 2015 - Back in November 2013 I reached 140 pounds and was able to keep it off for close to a year. However, my dad underwent major surgery and was diagnosed with cancer in 2014. I quickly gained back 30 pounds during that time. In January of this year, my dad passed away. It has been the hardest time of my life. I have been stuck in a rut and dealing with depression. I realized that I need to take small steps to come out of this. That is when I remembered Sparkpeople. So here I am, crawling my way out of a hole. I can do this, and I know I can!

    I'm glad to hear youre staying in the right direction. I was thinking of starting up roller skating to try new things. I wanted to restart at the beginning of the month but that didn't happen so everyday I'm trying to make myself start back up. Hopefully I'll get there. I need to lok into a gym membership. I've been looking for a nursing job...I was told that I had a position held for me and then come to find out I didnt. So I've been a little stressed and pissed off about it all. And of course wedding planning is starting to get hectic since its getting closer!!
