I want to Thank all my friends here at Spark People. This has been one of the best things that has ever happened to me. When I'm down you pick me up, always there with a hug if I need it and giving me the motivation when I've lost it. SO THANK YOU!

We just have to believe we can do it, have patience and stay with the healthy choices.

I did make my goal weight of 50 pounds by the end of May. Well the good news is I quit smoking May 18th, 2008.

I think I would have really lost it if I didn't have this site and my friends. When you know your staying in range and working out and you don't lose you gain. Wow, freaks you out. But here's to moving metabolisms!

OK as far as the bathing suit picture goes, we have been discussing things we have stopped doing because of our weight and our own comfort zones. Ari one of the wisest and insightful people that I know, suggested as basically a symbol of regaining something that we have taken away from ourselves posting a picture. This is huge for me because I have always hated having my picture done even when I was thin. But this is all about changing so I'm going for it. So thanks Ari, I love you and thanks to all my friends you are what makes life worth living, friends and family what more can you ask for:)

My new goals for 2009. I am not setting any weight loss goals this time. I am however going to make a promise to myself that I will do my best to take care of me by eating healthy and working out. Hopefully I will continue to lose. It is so discouraging when you don't lose and meet your goals.
