When I joined SparkPeople a year ago, my main goal was to fit back into size 6 jeans. I can now wear almost every pair of jeans I own, with one exception, and a pair that used to pinch horribly now has a large gap. Woohoo!

While there are still issues to work on, I feel more confident about my ability to face them, both when it comes to my health and the rest of my life. From here, I want to get the number on the scale back down to the 145-150 range. I want to be the ethereal willowy redhead warrior woman on my wedding day in October. I want to learn how to fight. I want to take Irish dance again. I want to learn or invent a style of sword dancing. New goals, rooted in who I am.

On a bigger scale, I want to plan for an eventual move to Scotland with the family I'm building -- me, my future husband, a little orange or gray kitty, and a pokey little puppy...and someday two-legged children as well. I want to be healthy for all of them, to show them that the world is a big place, but a reachable place for all of us.

Here we go.

    emoticon for joining the "Writers' Support Group" team. I wish you continued success with your weight loss. Take things one healthy meal, one exercise, one positive day at a time and always believe in yourself you can do this, one pound at a time. emoticon -- Lou
