In the past year I yo-yo dieted and exercised not so regularly, so I ended up reaching my biggest weight ever in September 2018 (my BMI reached 29). I’ve always been a bit overweight but in the past 3 years my weight went up in a totally out of control way. And the more I tried the worst it got.

That’s why I’m here on SP: I’m tired of dieting and exercising too much or not at all. I want to live a healthy lyfestyle and feel proud of myself for doing that every day!

Jan/Feb 2019: I have to admit that I’m still trying to figure out what to do. I haven’t found a proper balance yet, but I am trying. I am reading a lot, I have developed an exercise plan, still no clues with a meal plans, but I am recording what I am eating and trying to drink my 8 cups of water every day.
March 2019: I am really happy with the food plan I have found and I’ve been following it since mid Feb; I’m doing several activities on SP: weekly challenges with my hoop team, Beck’s pink book reading) and the Swing into Spring BL challenge; I started a pilates class and I’m trying to create a new doable fitness routine that includes all the things I wanna do (hoop, yoga, pilates, strenght training, walking, running)!

    Thanks for adding me as a friend. You seem to have had lots of successes these past 3 + months. Keep it up! I don't know how much you weigh and how much you want to lose, but you seem to be well on your way. I belong to the 5% Challenge group. You aim at losing 5% of your body weight, during an eight-week challenge, and we compete with other teams in the same group. I signed up as a 'Maintainer" this time around. I hope I can stick to it.
    If you ever need any help with German, I grew up in Germany and my extended family still lives there, Actually, I am going there next month for a visit.
    Good luck on your journey.

    Thank you for the goodie! I’m usually good on exercise. Drinking enough water is difficult. But now that it’s getting much hotter, it’ll be a priority! Hope your week is going well! Go Starfish!
