Starting again. I have never and will never regain all of the weight I lost, but a lot of control can get lost over time. With medications shifting for my epilepsy, a stressful job, and a toddler, it all enhanced the need to go back to tracking. So here I am. Again. :) I will always give a lot of the credit to spark for my weight loss and success. It's always here for me when I need to rethink my food and calories. And it's time to remind myself what portions and proper calories look like. It's funny how you can think that once you hit your goal it's over. But it is never really over when you have been battling your whole life.

Member Since: 6/24/2009

Fitness Minutes: 7,877

My Goals:
Get back to tracking so I can lose the last of the baby weight and get back into my size 6 skinny jeans. My current size 8 will not do!

My Program:
Currently, my program is to manage my eating while paying attention to my food allergies.

Personal Information:
My name is Melissa and I live in Los Angeles with all those who are sucked and stitched. But I want to lose it the right way! ;)

Other Information:
A bunch of random stuff I like:

I like to look at art and make art. I love to listen to music, especially if it's live. I like to read (biographies and pretty much anything). I love fashion; I like to make my own things and have since had to buy a new dress form since joining spark! :) I love movies and have about 400 dvds. I depend on the ones that make me laugh the most. That's all I can think of. Anything else you want to know, just ask.
