4 years ago I weighed 337 pounds, but that is just a guess. My scale only went to 330 and it went a bit over that.....I was very unhappy about my weight, and my lack of mobility. I had a hard time walking down the drive to the mail box. I was always scared to go out to unfamiliar places. I did not go to many places. I ate a lot of drive thru meals in my car. I tried to be a happy fat girl but most days it was impossible, my legs hurt, my feet hurt mostly my pride hurt.
How did I let myself get this big,?? better question why did I let myself??.....I still don't know why, not sure I ever will. I use to blame people and things that happen to me in my life, but then I realized we all have things that happen to us....
Then on April 26, 2006 I was reading a Women World magazine, and found a small ad that said free weight loss program. It was SparkPeople...I checked it out and felt a bit over whelmed by all the tools, I thought about it, I was looking for something but was not sure it was for me. I talked with Gary about it when he got home and then decided to give it a try..
So on May 1st. I started working the stages, I did what it said and thought some of the stuff was weird but I committed to follow it word for word.....
It has been a very interesting journey, one I now know I'll have to follow for the rest of my healthy life or else I'll be right back at where I started.....

I have meet so many wonderful people, who really care and understand....

Tomorrow is going to be a new day, just like each day. I start each day with a clean slate, I forget what went wrong yesterday and think what I can do better today....
I have learned to be good to myself and make my needs important...
when I feel better about myself I'm better to other people......

So once again thank you all for your help, new friends and old ones, I could not do it without you all.

Have a healthy week and make YOU your main focus.
