Update 7/6/12

Down to 149!! I'm trucking along to 125, but I'm so excited to have dropped from a size 16/18 to a size 10! It's been an amazing journey, though a little frustrating, and I'm happy to say I am now medication free as well due to my weight loss.

BEYOND motivated now!

Update - 3/8/10
I have just recently started the HCG protocal, with phenomenal success. After the holidays and taking on more responsibility at work, I found myself turning to convenience food and had packed on 5 more pounds. I was at 197 lbs, which is my heaviest weight ever.

I signed up for Pounds and Inches away and in the first week am down to 183.8. I am hoping to get to 170-172 by day 23. If I reach this goal, I will move to the next phase and begin my workout routine (because I dearly miss working out!!).

It's expensive, but I needed to do this for me. And I will be successful!

Update!! 12/15/2009
Motherhood has been kind to me so far. I've been blseed with a kid that sleeps through the night, who eats well, is happy, and now it's time for Mommy to get back on track. After nearly a year of nursing, it's time for me to admit I don't need 2400 calories a day anymore. I'm right back where I started when I first found Spark.

But I'm motivated and I need to be healthy to prove to my family that it's possible to make healthy choices, even when you work and go to school. It can be done!

    Summer 2010 St. Louis Spark People Rally!!!

    OK, so how's the MO Botanical Garden on July 17 at 9 a.m. sound? We could meet at the Visitor's Center and walk around for 2 hours-there's a 'Health Fair' going on the same day, too! If you're a resident of St. Louis County or St. Louis City, admission is FREE before noon-otherwise it's $8 for adults...the place opens at 9 a.m., so it wouldn't be quite as hot then, but we could do 10 as well...lots to do/see here & plenty of walking exercise & time to get to know fellow STL 'Sparkers'!!!

    Thanks so much for the comment on my blog! I take a herbal mix which really does help the PCOS if I take it regularly :)

    I actually tried the Metformin a while back and it made me really sick and I just didn't like all the side effects.

    I can't wait for tomorrow- very excited!
