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)

UPDATE: As of July 4th.....Weight 223.7 Loss of 4.4 lbs in 5 Weeks. A Total loss of 20.4 lbs from one year ago.

UPDATE: As of May 31st.....Weight 228.1 Loss of 8.4 lbs in 11.5 least the scale is going in the right direction.

I have been working on myself for over 12 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.

    “Do not think your mind is in control. You are in control of your mind. You use your mind.” …it is in your power to stop thinking the thoughts that no longer serve you, ‘I’m not good enough’, ‘I’ll never be able to do that’, ‘that’s just not for me’, etc. etc. “Learn to think in positive affirmations.” Look yourself in the mirror today and tell yourself you can ___. Repeat it until you mean it.” – Louise Hay

    Go out this weekend and do some positive things that make you feel healthy, fit, strong and confident in yourself!!!
