March 28/2014: Here I am 6 years after I worked so hard to lose all of the weight and I have gained 25 back. Time to get serious again!

3/28/14: 185lbs :(

I originally joined Spark in January of 2008. However, I didnt get serious about it until June of 2008 when I started reading other people pages and thier stories. I was 223 lbs (January08) after having my son in November. I lost about 10 pounds from January till June so I was about about 213lbs when I became "serious".

June 2008-
Hello, my name is Christi and I am 30 years old from Illinois. I am married, we have two kids. I gradually started gaining weight in my late teens when my husband and I had been dating for a while and began to feel comfortable and eating junky foods, but I probably wasnt considered"overweight" My weight gain happened when I was pregnant with my daughter at which time I gained 100 pounds, yes I said 100 lbs!! Going from 150 to 256. Anyway, I eventually got back down under 200 (195) which is still way to big for my height. I found out I was pregnant with my son in 2007 and went back up to 238. Im commited to getting healthier and looking better!

09/09/2008= 185.4lbs

9/23/2008-11/13/2008= Being a slacker no weigh ins!! : ( I do know I went from 178-179 and back down to 177. All because I wasnt tracking my food!!!
****STARTING OVER**** 10/14/2008
I have lost a total of 46lbs since January of 2008. I have went down 6 sizes in jeans from a 18 to a 12!! Never thought that would happen! When I started this I couldnt even imagine I was going to lose this much weight! I realize that it is very much a mental thing and I have tried to change my thinking to be healthier. I still have a hard time getting motivated to walk or be active. However, it is my goal to begin jogging to help me get to my goal, relieve stress and to feel better.

11/14/2008= 177.2 lbs
11/20/2008= 175.2 lbs
11/27/2008= 175.2 lbs

OCTOBER 02, 2009 Lets try this again. : ) 20lbs to gaol weight! I want this... I can do this!!

10/02/2009: 163

I think I got comfortble where I was in the 160's and kinda slacked a little or alot. But I realized with gaining a few pounds that I am ready to get them off and to continue on this journey to a healthier me. I no longer want to see a flabby belly when I look in the mirror , have to hide rolls hanging over my jeans, I want to lose this weight, not only lose weight but look good and feel comfortable with the way I look. Sooooo 2010 is my year! I am going to finish what I started.

I was really, really bad over the Holidays!

1/12/2010: 166.4 : ( = its ok I'll kick those lbs to the curb in no time.
1/14/2010= 163.00 WOO HOO! Here I come 150ville!

    The Scorpio child is born to a father who didn't want a child for whatever reason, which may never have been discussed in the home, but the sensitive little Scorpio picks up on this and learns not to trust others. She asks "What do they want from me and what is in this for me?" Scorpio is a good sign for a woman to be since it is "fixed" water, making her very emotional, but in our culture a woman is allowed to be emotional. She can be very jealous, even of siblings when she feels she has been slighted. Scorpio being a "fixed" sign can stay with and finish what she starts but she also has a very difficult time trying to change. She can certainly have a weight problem as her emotions get the best of her. But, she can exercise and stay with a routine, so her weight issue is ALL up to her and no one else. What she is is all of her own making. She lives a life of extremes and is never center-field on any issue. She makes up her mind quickly and stays with her decision or feelings on an issue.
    She gets along with Virgo, Taurus, Pisces, Capricorn and Cancer. She should avoid Sagittarius as he will be to blunt for her although she can be very sarcastic when she wants to be. It is her way of protecting herself and getting out her "sting."
    She makes a good detective or policewoman.
    Scorpio must be in control of any relationship she is in, as this goes back to her feeling unsure as a child.
    The Scorpio woman is often the "breadwinner" in the family, or she supports others such as a parent or "down on his luck" relative.
    No matter how successful Scorpio is in life, she always feels her life is a struggle. It is never easy for her from her point of view. She feels the world is against her in some way. Again, this goes back to her childhood.

    Like the other water signs, this sign is very sensitive and emotional. With Scorpio, unlike the water signs Cancer and Pisces, the emotions remain under rigid control. They may not even be apparent to those who are very close to you. When your emotions do erupt, they do so very violently, often with a strong burst of sarcasm and vindictiveness.
    The strength of Scorpio is in the methods employed to meet every challenge. You approach everything with intensity and passion. Nothing is ever halfway because you put everything you have in your work; mind, heart, soul. You are one of those people who always gives 100% and sometimes more. Many born under the sign Scorpio become classic workaholics.
    You may have an undesirable trait commonly found in the Scorpio person, holding a grudge for a very long time. The underside of Scorpio is often possessed with uncontrollable jealousies and the strongest passions. When offended the reaction is surely revenge. The higher side of Scorpio still dominates people and situations, but with much for the common good. This sign produces very few lukewarm people. You are either very bad or very good.
    In Scorpio, the Sun is intense, skeptical and secretive. There is an intensity and a secretiveness in your makeup which results in an inscrutable persona most people cannot penetrate. This trait makes the Scorpio personality hard to detect. You like to remain incognito, and do so with your very secretive nature. You are a master at hiding your emotions. You neither flinch nor blush. It's hard for you to share your inner feelings with anyone.

    You can be very critical and demanding, creating a forceful and dominating demeanor. You are strong-willed and determined, and you usually act with incisiveness. Your critical nature allows you to make shrewd and unusually accurate judgments at a rapid rate. You can penetrate the hidden agenda of those you meet. It is in your nature to protect yourself by knowing what your opponents are thinking and doing. You have uncanny intuition and accurate perceptions, making you almost psychic in understanding and making emotional connections with other people. Very few successfully earn your trust. Often, you experience difficulties with the authority figures in your life.
    At home, you may be something of a tyrant, wanting everything done your way. You think you are always right and won't tolerate dissent. There is a tendency for you to impose your will on friends and family since you feel so passionately that your ideas are in their best interest. No one takes relationships more serious than you. Although you are highly attracted to, and attractive to, the opposite sex, in many respects you function well as a 'lone wolf' type.
