I am 32 years old and live in NM! I was 258 pounds when I gave birth to my daughter and I was 30 pounds overweight when I got pregnant (I had quit those damn cigarettes) and have lost 84 pounds over the last 3 years. This has been by far THE hardest thing I have ever done and continue to do. When I met my husband I was 128 pounds. Oh sweet 120's! I am tired of 'maintaining' at the weight I am at, even though I don't mean too. I work out a lot and have a tendency to fall off the wagon come friday on eating. This has changed because I WILL reach my 100 pound weight loss mark by Xmas. I am so close I can taste it. I have a pair of jeans that are tired of hanging on the back of my bathroom door and want to be worn. I want to enjoy running again and my muscles enjoy feeling sore and fit. I want to be an athlete again.

I am participating in a spring triathlon in September 2009 as the swimmer. This will be the first event I have done in a decade and since gaining all this weight. My next goal is a 5K in October.

I faithfully drinks at least 3 liters of water a day and I really try to eat clean and healthy.

Time to sweat, drink water and sweat. Cheers to FINALLY losing my fat butt.

I did my first Tri Swim today as part of a team at this weight I am at and I am proud of myself for finishing with a swim time of 7:05!

    Hey, Melissa!! Thanks for stopping by. I love the picture of your family. Your daught is so cute! I ws at an ice rink tonight. Too cold for me there!

    I'm glad to hear you are going to wait until your birthday to have an enchilada. I do the same thing - birthdays are meant for splurging! But until then, we need to be good!

    I'm so sorry you're still feeling down. You don't have too much more to loose and that's got to make it even tougher. I also wanted to shoot you this article from They are a non profit organization that is dedicated to health. Anyway, I liked this article and thought I'd pass it along to you.

    Keep working at your journey and remember that you are not alone.

    I was on a plateau for the last....phew, 6 months? I started really tracking my food religiously, and I eat more protein than SP typically recommends and take away that amount of carbs. I finally lost.
    I would also recommend taking a break from your routine, if you have a pretty solid exercise routine that you have been following for more than 4 weeks. Do 1 week of nothing even related to what you were doing. Don't run if you run, instead ride a bike. If you lift weights, don't, and do pilates or calisthenics instead. It freaks your body out and could help you move to the next level of weight loss.
    Remember a week isn't that long! If it's been a month or more and you're being super vigilant with calories and fitness tracking, then you can start to worry. emoticon
