I was always a chubby kid. I was once told when going from 6th grade to 7th grade that if I would lose weight that I would be really cute. GAH!!!! Then my brother tells me when I was 8th grade that his friends would like me if I would lose weight. Again, GAH!!! Now he was a Senior in high school at the time. So I told him that if they didn't like me now that they wouldn't like me thin. I did lose weight in high school and wasn't really big but big enough through school. But I did have the boys respect, see I beat them at arm wrestling so they had a certain respect. After having my second daughter I gained weight up to 235. I fluctuated between 235 and 250 for the next 20 years. I divorced and remarried and was at 270 at my highest weight. In 2007, I had gastric bypass surgery. I lost down to 145, just 5 lbs from my goal weight and the next thing I know, I was back up to 165 and climbing. I got up to 185 and was able to put a stop to it with the help of SP. Pa has been a wonderful support system to me. I had some what I call "body work"done before the regain. I am currently fluctuating between 170 and 175. I hope to be getting this down with the help of some of my teams I joined. I want to help people with this journey. However I can help someone I will do what I can. I try to encourage, be an example and be a sound board. Hopefully, this journey will be at maintenance level before we know it.
Update: I am currently at 162.8.

    Are you interested in a Challenge?

    The Biggest Loser goes for 10 weeks. It consists of 10 teams participating in weekly Fitness and Nutrition challenges. The Spring challenge will be getting started the beginning of March. It consists of fitness and nutrition challenges that are often in a form of a game. If for some reason you cannot do a challenge then they are modified to meet your needs. Often we do the challenge in a game form, we have BINGO and TIC TAC TOE or seasonally themed. For Winter we had Help Santa Fill His Sleigh, Run Rudolf Run and Super Bowl. If you decide this might be for you you can leave your name on the waitlist for the Spring challenge. To get to the Challenge go to my page and click on the Blue Biggest Loser Icon, copy and paste the link below, or let me know and I can send you an invite. Join the Team then sign up on the waitlist. It’s the thread right below the Frosted Fitness Fun Chit Thread.

    They talked about that. That there isn't as many Springs now. Still gorgeous though. We haven't been through Hollister yet may have to make a trip your way. Glad you're back in the beautiful state of Idaho!
