From about 210 to about 145 - most of that in two years and most of it kept off for five years.

I'm a workaholic teacher, but when I find time for myself, I love playing softball, playing softball, playing softball, running, sewing, painting, playing piano and other musical instruments, spending time with my honey, of course, and playing softball.

I lost and kept off over 60 pounds and SparkPeople was a major factor in doing so. Now I'd like to complete my goal, becoming more fit, healthy, and slim. I want to be fit because I LOVE doing physical stuff and I want my body to be my ally in this, not my nemesis. I want to be healthy to improve my asthma, and to prevent illness and health conditions. Exercise and healthy food are paramount to living a healthy life; fat around the middle is a precursor to many health conditions.

    Hi, I saw your comment on the spark coach team introduction. You are more than just your body, and although loosing the weight will help it's not going to fix everything - referring to your body being a wall preventing you from accessing the paradise of a happy fun life. It looks like spark coach will be addressing that - especially with todays' message and the blog from Dean Anderson. I can relate to what you said, you have to work on your own self acceptance - beyond weight - and believe it or not that is almost harder than loosing the weight. I'm still working on that, and I lost most of mine a couple of years ago. Still trying to loose the last 20. But even more so, trying to learn to like myself. Good Luck and Best wishes.
