Hello everyone,
My name is Barb and I am from Southeastern Wisconsin, land of beer and deep fried cheese curds.
I joined SP in March of 12 (actively participated) because I topped out at close to 270 pounds. My cholesterol was 255 and my fasting glucose was 120. I put my foot down and said enough is enough, my now ex-husband rebelled. Undermined me by saying I was losing weight to attract a new man or that I had a boyfriend but I did not let that dissuade me. After I lost a large chunk I plateaued and have hung out around 210.
A couple months ago my gallbladder, which had been bothering me for a couple years and I assumed was just upset stomach from the now ex-husband, decided to make my life miserable. All food that I ate made it hurt and I came back to Sparks people to start logging to make sure I was eating enough. Which I was not, I was only eating 500 calories a day.
So I've lost a good chunk of weight in the last few weeks, I know, I know it wasn't healthy the way it came off but it's serving as a jump start. I haven't seen a one on the scale in close to 20 years. I'm excited and I'm going to keep going.
