Update! Last time I was on Sparkpeople, I made my goal weight! It was awesome! But I just got married a couple of weeks ago, and all of the stress involved led to some serious stress eating. I didn't gain very much (just about five pounds), but I feel bad about my body. So now I'm going to try to follow my time-tested pattern and lose 18 pounds! That will put me at a BMI of 21.3!

I've been off and on Sparkpeople for several years now, and each time I've lost about 20 pounds, only to gain 10 back later. Well, now I'm starting again with only 10-20 pounds to go 'til my goal weight, and I'm very excited! I've been overweight since puberty, and I've only been as skinny as I am now once before in my life. That's why my goal weight is a 10 pound range! I honestly don't know where I'll feel my best because I've never been thinner before. With every pound I lose, I discover new curves that have been covered with fat. I'm really excited to get into the "healthy" BMI range within the next couple of weeks and, once I'm there, start trying to figure out what my ideal weight should be!

Because I've done Sparkpeople before, I'm making a special goal this time around: participate in the community. The last time I tried, I just ignored the entire 'community' section, but I've been reading a lot of posts lately, and am really reassured and inspired by them.

    I think it's pretty standard to lose weight from the top down. I remember at my smallest (118 lbs), I still had quite a lot to work with. I like the adjustable sides too, so I can cover my rear and have that retro look going on.
    Dude, you totally lost 16 pounds! That's so awesome!

    I think a bit of both! It certainly means that we're smart, and that is always cool. ;)

    Swahili sounds really interesting. What is it like as a language? I've only taken Indo-European languages, so I'm not sure how different it is from them.

    My fiance and I are planning for next June, but we're both looking around for new jobs, so depending on what that brings, it may be later, or hey! Maybe it'll be sooner! I already have the hall and the church picked out. Both small, quaint, yet beautiful. Exactly how I want our wedding to be.

    How about you? That's gotta be hard to plan *two* weddings, even if they are small! emoticon
