6/7/07 - I live in the Los Angeles area. I have had three sons and I have an active grandson.
I am engaged to a wonderful man. Just recently, I attended a couple of weddings. I found myself trying to hold my jacket closed so people would not notice my stomach. I don't want to do that any more. That is why I am sharing my weight loss progress online. I feel that I will have to follow through if people are watching my results.

1/2/08 - I went from a size 28 to a size 22. I'm making progress.

1/2/09 - Starting over. I now wear a size 26. Read my blogs to see my progress.

5/30/09 - Wedding Day! I now wear a size 24.

1/7/13 Just came back to Spark. I currently wear a size 32 pants and I weigh 342.6 lbs. I am not a happy camper.

Been back on Spark for a month now. I currently wear a size 30 pants and I weigh 328.9. I have a lot of work to do.

3/9/13 - Grand child number 4 is here.

1/7/14 - One year back on Spark. I now weigh 276.2 lbs. and I wear a size 24. I am definitely making progress!

1/06/15 - Two years back on spark. 242.2 lbs. Size 20

1/07/16 - Three years back on spark. 228.6 lbs. Size 18 I am happy that I lost some weight in the last year, but I know I could have done much better.

1/07/17 - Four years back on Spark. 219.4 lbs. I have a few pair of pants in a size 16 but I am also still wearing my size 18 pants. I am really disappointed and happy at the same time. Disappointed because I should have lost more weight. Happy because I'm still determined to lose weight.

1/07/18 - I lost weight, gained it back, then lost some more, then gained it back. I am now at 236.6. My size 18 pants are too tight but I still wear them. I also took out two pair of pants that used to be too big for me. I'm a little disappointed but already back on track.

1/16/19 - I started this year at 250.8. I now wear a size 20 pants. I started getting serious about losing weight again about 11 days ago. I am now 247.6 pounds. I'm looking to lose 50 pounds this year.

1/9/20 - I started this year at 264.4. It's been a real roller coaster ride, but it's time to get off. My health depends on it.

1/18/21 - I started this year at 273.2. I'm still struggling but I'm not giving up.

My Goals:
My goal is to eventually lead a more active life. I intend to walk on a daily basis and for fun, instead of going to the movies all of the time, I want to go bike riding and skating. But my ultimate goal is to lose over 100 pounds.

My Program:
I still eat what I want. I just don't eat as much. I walk on my lunch break and My husband and I walk/jog after work on the treadmill and we walk on the weekends.

    Wow, bed at 12. I am in bed by 9 and hope to get to sleep by 10. I am up around 6 ish to work out.

    I have ADHD and I have to get my workout done in the morning to improve my focus. My ADHD group actually recommends it. I was just doing it because it worked.

    It sounds like you have a game plan.

    Congrats on your retirement. I can't wait for that day. :) Not that I want to get older (hehe)
    Take care and make sure you have a good routine so you stay on track with sleeping. I hear that is the hardest part about retiring.

    You'll love being retired. Congratulations!!! I hope you'll be heading out to TN. We are 2 hrs from the Smokies. You'll love it there.

    Hello there. I know it's been a long time. I've been off Spark for 2 or 3 yrs. I gained my wt back and was depressed about it. So I'm going to try again. I retired April 2018 and we moved down to TN. We are loving it and so glad to be out of IL. How are you doing? Have you reached your goal? You probably did and is looking great. I miss talking to you too. I will try to be on here more often now. Sending hugs to you!

    Success is to wake up each morning and consciously decide that today will be the best day of your life.
