I am 5'3'' and 3/4 inches tall and use to weigh 357lbs at my heaviest. I am not really sure how I got to be that heavy. It almost seems like I woke up one morning and there it was true thunder thighs and a gut to match. I reached a point when I had had enough and thought gastric bypass would be my answer. Well, I was denied that option because I was a healthy fat person, if one even exists! So I had to do it on my own. It has been an up and down ride. I have lost more than a 150lbs and then I reached a long plateau. I am just thankful that the scale did not go too far in reverse before I realized I needed to get serious again. I have tried every diet under the sun and honestly, I am tired of dieting. I really like the Spark plan I don't feel like I am dieting at all. It has also helped me realize why I eat. This has become a journey that is not so much about weightloss as it is about learning about me. It is time.

Fitness Minutes: 11,562

My Goals:
I really want to turn the scale around so that it starts to decrease instead of holding fast! I need to add exercise to my life daily. I am fairly active but not cardio active.

My Program:
I am starting slow but steady, I track my food daily...EVERYTHING! I do two 10 minute cardio sessions 3x/wk and strength train 2x/wk, add one fun day and a day of rest then start again! I got this program from Prevention Mag.

Personal Information:
I am a native of Wilmington, DE but don't let that fool you...I've been everywhere man!

Other Information:
I love a good action movie where things get blown up or a really good side aching comedy, but I am definately not a fan of the psychos or scary, too realistic for me!

    Hey Barb, thanks for your feedback on my recent post: Something to Ponder. I completely agree, weight loss is more than working out and eating well, it is a journey full of new self-discoveries. Have fun learning all about you :)
