I am Japanese and I live in Japan. I am connected to SparkPeople via the web from Japan. I was skinny and being told that I was beautiful by many of my friends in school days, but after the breakup of a relationship when I was 21, I lost everything except weight, which I gained 150 lbs eventually. I kept the attitude throughout my 20s and 30s. In 2005, my weight recorded the highest ever, 280 lbs, I was diagnosed diabetic, and my real fight with my weight started. I started to exercise and watch which foods I took, and with the consistency of keeping doing them for two years gave me success of 100 lbs weight loss in 2007. I have kept the weight since then, but I still want to go more.

So I am starting again today, making commitment myself to do the exercises and foods, toward my goal of 130 lbs. And I want to feel better, care free with life’s worries. I see myself focusing on tedious things, tedious worries currently, which makes me who I am. But I want to change that. I want to hire positive attitudes towards life, discarding the negative ones, and build a new life, much healthier than now and before, for my precious future.
