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.

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.

Personal Information:
I am from California, the Los Angeles area. I've had three sons. My oldest is 40, the youngest is 29. My middle child died before the age of 21 in 2001. I have a wonderful grandson who is 18 years old.
I have 2 beautiful granddaughters, 11 and 8. And I have three little grandsons, 5, 3, and 1.

    Each journey is different. Once upon a time I heard someone say, if you want a sweet eat a pickle and see if that kills the craving. A jar of pickles later, I still wanted the sweet. Only more so.

    Today, I have to hide some things from my husband because he is trying to hit 285 instead of the 265 his oncologist asked him to reach. A difference in our styles - when we eat out, I ask for a carryout carton immediately (or carry my own). Depending on the portion size, I try to stow half to 2/3 before I start to eat. I love getting 3 or even 4 meals out of one purchase. In contrast, he chooses to eat as much as he can, then asks for a carton and complains he is stuffed.

    My story is just one. You decide if it is worth a try.

    Never give anyone the power to 'make' you feel something you don't choose to feel.
