WOW! I can't believe I started this page almost 5 years ago! I'll be 28 this July!

I'm 23 years old and I am ready for a healthier me! All of my life I've been unhappy with my body, it didn't help I was a dancer for 15 years of it. I'm ready to make a change and live a healthier lifestyle. My ultimate goal is too have a normal BMI

* I started my journey at 178 pounds. On my own I began working out and eating healthy. Three weeks later I joined sparkspeople at 172 pounds.

::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::4 months in::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

This week marked four months on sparkpeople. I can't believe how the time has flow by. Looking back at photos it's pretty incredible how far I've come. I'm down twenty pounds and feeling more confident about my body then ever before. Although I'd love to say this journey has been easy we all know that is far from the case. It really does take a certain kind of person to be able to achieve what alot of us on this site have achieved....determination, perseverance, discipline, courage and so much more is what's needed to really see it through. But it IS possible!
Some days I think I can't possibly continue to do this for the rest of my's too hard! but then I remind myself that it's a lifestyle not a quick fix. I'm definitely happy about my progress so far but I know that I still have quite a ways to go to reach my ultimate goal. I have no doubt in my mind that I will make it and so can you!! God Bless!

I'm 24 now and it has been a year since I have joined sparpeople. my goodness how time flies by. I am super close to reaching a 30 pound loss and am absolutely extatic about it. I've NEVER been under 150 my whole adult life. Although I am thrilled with my progress I'm no where near where I want to be. I mean today I still would not wear a two piece bathing suite.. I would still wear my tankini and a skirt bottom! ::::sigh:::: but there is still 5 months until I have to think about a bathing suite so there is still hope.

I continue to eat smart and healthy chocies, I limit alchohol and I am still workingout. I'm not at the gym as often as I'd like to be but I am definitly working on that. So basically on year later and I'm still here. I'm in it to win it!! haha God Bless


I'm 25 now! How did that happen? time has just flown by!
Right now I'm feeling great about the 30 pounds I've lost but I want more! I'm dying to reach my goal weight and growing increasingly impatient with the lack of progress... Iv'e been watching what I eat and working out going on two years now. I know what I have to do and how I have to do it. I won't settle with being ok with my body. I have to keep going and keep moving forward. I'm so greatful for all the guys help me to keep going! Let's do it!

My numbers:04-02-08
%body Fat:37 UNHEALTHY
Fat Mass:61
Lean Body Mass: 103
upper Arm:12

I'm definitely looking forward to some decreased numbers!!

My numbers:05-06-2008
weight: 162.6
%body Fat: 30 ACCEPTABLE (according to them, not me)
Fat Mass: 50
Lean Body Mass: 112
Neck: 12.5
upper Arm: 11
Forearm: 9
chest: 38
Waist: 30.5
Hip: 40
Thigh: 20.5
Calf: 13.75

wohoo! So on average I lost 2 inches off of everything! It's amazing I only lost 4 pounds in a month but as they say muscle weighs more then fat

Update: I was reading my first paragraph and realized that I hit my goal of having a Normal BMI. That' awesome but I wouldn't say that it was my ULTIMATE goal. I still have work to do....

I'm 26 now and not in a good place. Since getting married In October I've gained a ton of weight! I'm uncomortable and feeling really down but that's the end of be continued

    And your son is SO frickin' adorable! I love being a mommy, but sure does take away any time you have for yourself (yet, I wouldn't change it for anything).

    I LOVE the elliptical. My husband got it for me for an early birthday gift. I got it on Amazon for like $630, which is pretty cheap with free shipping. I used it Saturday and Sunday for 45 minutes each day and even took Chloe for a long walk Sunday (and ran for about 5 minutes before I nearly died). I have it in Chloe's play area downstairs facing the TV, so I can ride it when she goes to bed for the night and catch up on my shows. Whatever works!
