My name (nickname actually) is Lola, and I LOVE pineapples!

I began my SP Journey on January 6th, 2008 my heaviest weight ever= 291.6 lbs (yikes)

I have been overweight for most of my life, but more significantly so these past 5 years. I am sick of being the overweight girl in my group of friends. I am sick of shopping at plus size stores and spending more money while watching everyone around me buy the clothes I wish I could wear.

I am done with this! I am ready to begin a new life. I am ready to rethink the way I eat and live. I have tried a few diets in the past, always starting strong and tapering off. Not this time. This time I am ready to commit. I want to work hard and fight the weight for the next year and a half, and then maintain after that. When looking back at the last five years I think I should have done this already, but maybe all those failed attempts are what will make this one work! A year and a half is such a short amount of time when you think about it.

I also have a wonderful boyfriend, (not on spark people but he is dieting with me)! We have been together for 7 years, and though we are not engaged yet, I hope someday we will be, and I don't want to worry about my weight when I am ready to get married. I have a Yorkie who is my exercise buddy, and a very supportive best friend and mother. I am looking to expand my support network, and I know sparkpeople is the right place for that!

Parable of a Cautious Man

There was a very cautious man who rarely laughed or cried
He never won, he never lost, he never really tried
Then one day he passed away his insurance was denied
They claimed because he never lived he never really died.

My program is about communication. The more I talk about my efforts, the more motivated I am to continue with them.

Another part of my program is exercise! I HAVE to exercise to loose weight. Diet alone doesn't work for me. I feel better about myself when I break a sweat!
