I hate diets. I've been on one as long as I can remember. A few have worked, but I have always gained the weight back.

Finding myself at 5'5 and 312 pounds at the age of 23, I knew that I needed to make some changes. So I did. One day, I made up my mind, joined a gym, and worked diligently, severely restricting my calories and joining a circuit training gym.

About a year later, at fifty pounds lighter, I found myself growing bored and I stagnated in my progress. I continued to lose ten or twenty pounds a year for a few years, sometimes gaining and losing the same ten plus ten more.

I realized soon enough that my weight problem was due to extreme emotional eating and since I have been able to identify my problem, it has made my struggles a little easier to deal with.

Here I am, at age 29 now, still overweight, obese, really, at about 230 pounds, tired of wishing and hoping for those size 6 jeans. Sigh.

Joining Spark People has been a great experience, and I love the ease of tracking weight and exercise here. My goal weight is far away, so my initial goal for this year is just to see the other side of 200. It's been a long time since I was 199 pounds or less. Probably middle school!

i also desperately want to run a 10K by the time I'm 30. With eight months to go, I know I can do it!

    I posted a reply to a message on the message board- but not sure if the link will work or not. If it doesnt- search "before, during and after journal" and the article should come up for you.
    Good luck

    Happy Birthday to You!!

    Born Aug. 8, you tend to fall in and out of love quickly, but this doesn't mean that it's not the real thing when it happens to you. Indeed it is, as far as you are concerned, even though it happens to you again and again. The difficulty, of course, is that you're never able to leave a former lover in your dust, so you are always keenly aware of the broken hearts you have left behind -- and this can be quite painful to you. Indeed, you have a knack for remaining friends long after the romantic fire has burned out.

    You believe that variety is the spice of life in all aspects of your daily affairs, and this can be rather dangerous where employment is concerned, for your eagerness to enjoy something new and different may make it quite difficult for you to enjoy long-term success in any single line of work.

    Hope your day was wonderful!
