�This is what the LORD says� he who made a way through the sea, a path through the mighty waters, "Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wasteland.� ~ Isaiah 43:16,18-19

Weigh-in Record:

Summary for 2008:

Summary for 2009
1/2/2009 - 175-176 lbs (+1) Waist: 39.5 in up to 41.5 in (+2 in), Hips: 48 in up to 48.5 in (+0.5 in), Neck: 14 in up to 14.25 in (+0.25 in). Accomplishment: managed to get down to 165 lbs, at 168 lbs I crossed the mark from being "obese" to being merely "overweight"...but by the end of the year had crossed back over into the "obese" category

Summary for 2010:
Started out at 176 lbs, Waist: 41.5 in, Hips: 48.5 in, Neck: 14.25 in. Had a rough year in terms of weight-loss and staying focused on my goals. Ended up gaining back pretty much everything I had lost since I had first started SparkPeople in April of 2008. But, I'm not going to focus on that any longer. Forward!

Summary for 2011-2013
I have managed to gain back everything that I once lost, and then some. I am back in the largest size I ever was--and hoping and praying I do not go any further in that direction. 2013 was a difficult year (to say the least) and I'm ready for a new start!
