I have been a big girl my whole life.. I had my dear grandmother that taught me dieting because she was a weight loss professional.. I have lost over 80 pounds like three times and now I am at it again. The difference this time is that i know i will have to eat healthy the rest of my life. I really want to be a better wife and mother and be able to participate in all the activities I can for my children.. I did not realize how big I got, My sister moved into this house that has mirrors all over the place.. I looked into the mirror and was very horrified at my appearance.. I wondered how my husband still wanted me.. I feared he would leave me. He never told me how fat I was. no one told me.. I guess thinking I
could get upset.. Last March I gave birth to my fourth baby. The part of my life of having babies is over and now i need to concentrate on living a more healthy life for my children... I really like sparkpeople keeping track of my calories fat and everything has helped so much.. I now know what i need to eat everyday to stay in my calorie ranges..

Well i am half way there.. some days i have to slap myself to keep going and somedays it is like nothing.. I have adopted new habbits and they are staying with me.. I am so glad for that.. I have fifty more pounds to loose..I am about one pound from my fifty off.. I have got my wii and my exersize videos so i am doing this...
Starting a new business.. tastefully simple.. it is food shocking but i feel like i can sell the products without throwing everything away.. I have learned all things with moderation....

I have been stalled on my weight loss for a couple months.. i know i have had some recent stresses and it has made me not care about what i put in my mouth.. i feel like im hanging on the end of a rope right now.. going to fall off into being fat.. please help.. i know now my eating is stess eating.. and the amounts of food i can eat is horrible.. im trying to hold on to all the work i have done... and get my mind set back to i can not eat this way... so here i go.. im preplanning the days food and printing out the menu and going to see if that will help... hoping for the best...
6/23/12 well this is hard to say but i have completely fell off and now i need to get back on.. i have gained so much back just went right back to my old ways.. im praying God will help me get back on track..
6/5/13 Wow it has been a year.. a year of craziness my sister was very ill and almost died but with Gods love she has been healed and is on the road to recovery. I have had a hard time eating right during this time.. but i have recently found some sucess.. i have started taking fastin xr one in the morning and one in the afternoon. It kills my appetite completely and gives me energy. I just could not do this on my own. I tried and tried but keep falling down. the pill also takes the cravings away.. so im not sitting around thinking about what cake i can eat. It is so freeing.. i have also prayed God would guide me in this process. and he has.. so im down twenty pounds and already feeling tremendously good. I did not put the weight on here that i got up to. I had gotten up to 285 and i was feeling terrible. im not 265 and very happy that this is working for me.. So my first short term goal is 250 cant wait to get there...
