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!

    Glad to hear that youre feeling better and have things figured out. I'm trying to get everything figured out still and plan out as much as I can. I really have to make myself work out at home. With my crazy busy schedule its hard to go to Zumba classes. I have a ton of workouts from online that I can do...just gotta make myself do them! The scale didn't budge this week but that OK! If i eat right and work out some then the scale should be my friend next weigh!

    Have a great week :]

    Hey girl! I don't know when you will get this message but I hope you get it sometime in the near future! I hope life is treating you well and that you are still kicking butt! I fell off the sparkpeople "horse" for a while as I was dealing with many other challenges in my personal life but I'm ready for a new year and the best me I can be! I'm here to be supportive of your goals but also wanted to let you know that you were always inspirational to me. Happy New Years!

    Hey Friend,

    We were all set to get back into this, and I fell right off. How are you doing? I am planning on counting calories again and actually sticking to it this time. Hope you're doing well!
