I am a mother of two adult children, both living at home, one finishing up high school in the next year and the other working and going to college. I also have a wonderful supportive husband of about 22 years. We also have two fur-babies, Shorty (West Highland Terrier) and Bella (Chihuahua)

I have been working on myself for over 13 years now. Been on Spark people on and off since 2007. I have had success and disappointment all throughout those years. The last time I lost significant amount of weight was from June 2015- April 2016-losing 63.4 lbs from my heaviest weight ever of 256. Over the last three years I have not gone above my heaviest weight....just keep bouncing from 230-250. So basically gain just about every single pound back.

On my own from Nov 2018 I have gone Up and Down the same 10 lbs 246-236. Right now as of March 11 I am at 236.5...half a pound gain since end of February.

What I deal with on a daily basis is depression, anxiety, thyroid issues and fibromyalgia. Mostly this affects my desire and ability to exercise the way I would love to. Adding to these issues I now deal with Type 2 diabetes, and a weak heart.

    The teams filled up this week. I am going to wait to assign you to a team. That is because it is not unusual for members to change their mind and drop out on or before the first week of the challenge or not to post a start weight, then I can put you in an Active spot. If nothing comes open (this has never happened). I can ask the Leaders if they are willing to go Honorary or put you as Honorary on a team. Honorary members take part in the Challenges, but the stats don’t count towards the team totals. If I will put you Honorary on a team would you like to try a new team or go back to the a Phoenix team? I will know by June 8th if someone missed posting their start weight, so please watch your Sparkmail the first week of June. I will keep you updated.
