I have been using Sparkpeople forever. Forever. A few years ago I was down to 210, a big accomplishment for me, but I got lazy and gained everything back, plus then some. I have been meaning to lose the weight again, but I create my own barriers and excuses.

I never was thin, okay, except when I was 5, then I was thin. My parents allowed me to eat whatever I wanted, which did not include vegetables. So, my hardest time in losing weight now is actually learning to cook and enjoy vegetables. I have no clue how to cook these things and it doesn't help to have a picky husband.

I started right when I got back from vacation on 05/21 to eat healthy again. I started at 250 and plan on going down as low as I go.
