3/10/2016 Went back to the abuser. Sad to say, but I can only look forward. Started spin class last night. Trying my hardest to get healthy. UPDATE - 6/24/2013 After keeping my weight off for almost 3 years, I entered an abusive relationship and lost sight of myself. That is now behind me and I'm ready to put myself first again, starting today. Healthy eating, exercise and becoming mindful again. Glad to be back!!! Priscilla +++++++++++++++++++++++
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ So - I've been overweight my entire life. But no more!!! Because I'm DONE being the fat girl!! I'm DONE being the girl who has "such a pretty face but needs to lose some weight"!! I joined Spark at the end of January and was wondering around aimlessly until I found the DONE BEING THE FAT GIRL team. This team has been the most supportive one I've been on. With their support and motivation, I have lost 36 pounds (as of 5/18/08) and counting. I have also started the Couch to 5K running program and LOVE it!!! Who would have guessed I would like running??? Or even exercise for that matter!! I have found a new and happier me!!! Update - September 2008 I have kicked 61 pounds to the curb!!!! I go to the gym 5 times a week and love it!!! I never finished the C25K running program - but not because I'm lazy and gave it up. I discovered Spin Class and fell in love!!! I have also been taking a class at my gym called Body Pump. It is so much fun!! Everyone's been asking me what my goal is. I've been telling them about another 40 pounds but I'm not so sure. I want to get to a healthy BMI - it doesn't matter what size I'm in. My next goal is to be 190#. That's only about 9 pounds but the weight is coming off slower lately. It's a little discouraging but not enough to make me want to stop and revert to my old ways. Update - February 13, 2009 I am officially DONE with 82 pounds. I had my first session with a Personal Trainer this past Wednesday and I've signed up for 10 more. I love my life now - I have so much energy and confidence! So - here's to all of us ---- we can do this!!!! Update - March 25, 2010 So - It's another year and I'm back up to the high 180's! But I've found my mojo again! Eating healthy, staying within my calorie-range, and logging into Spark every day! 2010 WILL BE THE YEAR I REACH MY GOAL! I can't go back to where I was sooo many years ago!
