I have been an on-again, off again Spark-er, and am now trying to get on-again. I moved to Chicago from Michigan about 9 months ago, and despite giving up my car and walking and/or using public transportation to get everywhere, I have managed to gain about 10 pounds, which puts me back in the "overweight" category. Well, depending on the day's weight fluctuations :)

In 2005, I was 210 pounds (I'm 5'7") and made some life changes that brought me down to 163, a size I hadn't been since 2001. I went back up to 175 in 2006, went allll the way down to 142 in 2007, and worked my way back up to 165 by last year. Last summer I had a lot of inner conflict and worked it off with running, and I quickly dropped off 15 pounds. Of course, then I moved to Chicago, and I wasn't so angry anymore, and therefore didn't feel the need to run it off anymore :) I was also busy finishing up an online master's degree, and MY GOODNESS I DON'T NEED TO TELL MANY OF YOU HOW GOOD THE FOOD IS IN CHICAGO! I remember when my doctor pointed out I'd gained 5 pounds earlier this year -- I told him that there are three bakeries between my apartment and the gym. I have since switched gyms, so this is no longer the case. Hopefully this will have a positive effect on my waist. :)

I am not a yo-yo dieter so much as a yo-yo exerciser. Whenever I go to the gym A LOT and vigorously exercise A LOT, it helps to decrease my appetite, and gives me less time to graze around my kitchen (and less time to stop at the bakery). Walking 5 miles a day unfortunately does not provide the same effect!

I had a couple of health wake up calls recently that reminded me to get back on track. I had severe stomach pains recently and finally connected it to drinking too much (20 drinks in 5 days, for the curious--not something I normally do!). I don't plan on giving up drinking, but think about it -- if each of those drinks was even only 150 calories, that was 3000 calories in booze alone! Also, one of my co-workers recently died of a heart attack.. at the age of 46. It made me realize that I need to really take my health seriously, and take care of this body I've got--since it's the only one I've gotten! I look forward to making some Spark Friends as the handful of friends I have in town don't have any of the issues with food or motivation that I do, so I need some positive reinforcement. So hello everyone!

-Beth
