I want 2011 to be my last year of battling the bulge!!! My starting weight with Spark was 179 pounds(02/16/11). That is very depressing for me. I have always been able to keep a handle on my weight but this year I have been very irresponsible in the choices I have made and the exercise I did not partake in. This is my last year that I will dread getting on the scale and that is a promise to myself. I turn 28 June 13th and I will look amazing(no if, ands or buts). I have been avoiding pictures for a while because I don't like what I see, and that is odd because I LOVE taking pictures. I'm facing my fears and taking pictures because I won't look like that forever. So on my weight loss journey I go, because the nice weather is approaching and I will enjoy!!!!!
AUGUST 31, 2011
I went on a 2 month hiatus because of medical issues and could not exercise and didn't care what I ate. So, of course the 13 pounds I lost from Feb. 2011-March 2011 were gained back plus 4 more. I am fighting to get past those 17 pounds and to keep pushing to lose more. Any progress IS progress and I made a promise to myself at the beginning of the year(2011)and I won't let myself down. Even though I was thrown off course I will not stay off course. I feel much better in my clothes and I love the way my face looks. Slow and steady wins the race. December 31, 2011 is not here yet and I will keep pushing until I reach my goal of being comfortable and healthy.

I'm here and I'm still pushing forward. Even though I set monthly weight loss goals of 5 pounds each month, I have two very important numbers I want to see on the scale. Those numbers are 164 and 159. 164 pounds will mark my 20 pound weight loss mark and also when my fiance agreed to start back exercising. It seems weird, but it's motivation for both of us and I'm not stopping. 159 pounds is when my BMI will be in the healthy range, the high end of healthy but, nonetheless, HEALTHY!!! I still have my monthly goals but those numbers are very important to me!!!

I am officially 30 pounds down-WOO-HOO!! I'm energized, positive and so looking forward to this year. I will be at my goal weight within the next few months and will be at a fitness level, that I have never reached. Not that I can remember. I will actually hit my goal before my birthday(June 13th) and I will have on a sexy dress-you better believe it!!! My goal each month is still to lose five pounds and I have been hitting my mark and will continue to do so. I will run my first 5K March 25, 2012, which is for the American Lung Association. Super-hyped about that endeavor. My reward for hitting my goal is a new tattoo(to match my sister's) and a pair of PZI jeans, because they hug you in all the right places:-) Between school and family functions my schedule is booked up until June. I'm blessed and grateful and pray for only positive things for ALL!!
Keep on Sparkin', don't let your flame go out!!

##&&**!!////AUGUST 8, 2012##&&**!!//
A little bit of refocus is needed. This year has been busy for me. In January, I started school and have been going steady ever since(I'm trying to get it done-lol!!) I just finished classes(08/06/12) and they start again 08/27/12. I have not had the time I wanted to workout and eat healthy and as a result, I gained some weight. I'm not really going crazy over it though, I'm just undoing what I did. The year is not over and even though I may have fell short, I still have the chance to make it right. I was doing so good with staying between 150-155 pounds. August 1, 2012 I got on the scale and it read 172 pounds-WHOA!!! It's August 8th and I'm down to 165. Making my way back to where I am comfortable. It feels good to be back amongst friends. Let's kick butt and pounds!!

I'm back to lose some weight and keep it off. I have been really trying to get to the root of my weight issues, and figure out why I keep gaining and losing. I know what my issues are and I'm going to confront them on this journey. I will keep a weekly record of my weight journey and I will share it with all of you. Starting 11/11/13 I will embark on my mission to lose weight and EARN the body I deserve. Thanks in advance for your motivation and encouragement!!!

October 2014
Since August 1, 2014, I have been working my butt off to finally get this fat off of me and I am pleased with my results. It may seem like I have done this before, just by reading my profile, but I have done this before. But this time, It is different because I am taking my time to learn my body and my eating habits and what works best for me. I am ejoying the workouts and watching my body transform and get stronger. I'm putting in the work and it's going to get done. END OF STORY!!!
