Hi - My sister had me join SparkPeople because I've struggled with my weight my whole life.

I fell off the SparkPeople wagon for a while because of a couple of horrific years, but I'm back and trying the hCG diet on the advice of a medical weight loss clinic. By doing acupuncture, I was actually able to get off of most of my medicines for thyroid and heart rhythm. Now it's just time to get this metabolism reset so that I can go back to the size I had gotten down into in college. :-)

Member Since: 7/25/2008

Fitness Minutes: 0

My Goals:
1) Shrink "batwing arms"
2) Go back to a size 14/16

My Program:
hCG Diet

Personal Information:
My family is from Georgia. I just moved back to GA from CA. My sister and her family live in Tennessee.

I was a heavy child. When I graduated highschool, I was around 250 pounds. When in College, I lost 75 pounds with Richard Simmon's Deal-a-Meal. Then, sometime in 1995, I started to gain weight rapidly (15 pounds the first month). My dr suggested I join Jenny Craig because he didn't think I was tracking my calories right. I gained 45 pounds on Jenny Craig, so I quit (loved that food, though!). I have kept my weight steady from 260-270 for the past 10 years, but couldn't lose below 260.

Other Information:
I'm an AVID reader. I love books! I love history books, historical romance novels, and just about anything that has a good story. I'm not much of a TV person, but when I do watch TV, it's things more in line with New Detectives, FBI Files, Forensic Files, Dr G Medical Examiner, and things of this nature. (But if I flip the channel and Bugs Bunny or Futurama are on, I'll watch those anytime!)

    Hi MARVELOUS TRINA!! Missing YOU and your posts!! We are doing some revamping on the team!! Trying some new ways of posting, new ideas, and hoping to get members to interact more with each other for SUPPORT to help with everyone's goals and SUCCESS! So PLEASE start to post in 2 areas now...JUST post HERE (that is new!) and continue posting in the mini journal thread...Are you still doing HCG? I have a new program that is working for some of the team members. very healthy, and losing a pound a day. Not hungry either, and very nutritious and inexpensive...did I tell you about this already...dejavu!!

    The EXERCISE CHALLENGE started today...Hoped you joined, but its not to late, so, please post here! I know HCG doens't require much exercise...not sure what you are doing...just would love to help you get to your goal!! But we can talk about both challenges in JUST post HERE, if you feel too scattered (We have thought that this is one of our big problems and are trying to "simplify" posting for members to get the most from the team) Just write in your mini journal that you are a challenge member! Not being so "scattered" so to speak and get members to "connect" is VITAL to our SUCCESS!! We are a TEAM, let's not forget that, and we all need each other's pat on the back! Even Me!!! We all know each other and I know some of us have stalled, so I think this will really help all of us!...We are all in this together, so let's hear what you have to say about this NEW technique!! We Are marvelous let's now be even more MARVELOUS and MOTIVATED for ourselves and our TEAM!! I believe this is going to make a BIG difference!! What do you think? Let our Marvels know in Just post Here!! See you there and let's see you often!! Let's make it to not only our challenge goals but be SUCCESSFUL in everything we DO!!
