...what it was like to gallop a horse?
...what it was like to ride a wicked roller coaster?
...what it was like to *want* to go clothes shopping?
...what it was like to not be sick/hurting all the time?
...what it was like to actually have fun?

I do. Those are the things I desperatly long for in my life again, and I hope that with this place and support, that I will be able to have them again before I forget what it was all like.

I updated and changed my ticker on Jan 29th to reflect the highest weight that I was some 4 years ago. 2 years ago it was 355, but the highest was 370, I started over this year at 330. So why did I change it for? To remind myself of how far I have truly come, so that I don't see this as another "Oh, I failed...guess I start over at this weight..." but rather as a slow but steady continuation of this weight-loss journey. It may have taken a few starts and stops over the last several years, but I've gone from 370+ to 317 as of this morning. And I need to remind myself of where I was and where I am now.

Fitness Minutes: 7,096

My Goals:
My main goal is to get back to a point where I can enjoy life.

I know many people say: "Don't wait to live." But there is not much that you can do at nearly 400 (my heighest) pounds. I can't do what I love. Any of it. I just want to be happy and healthy.

My Program:
Eating well and as clean as I can. Strength training 3 days a week, and cardio for at least 25 minutes 6 days a week. I'm sure the exercise will have to be bumped up in time, but for now this is where I'm at.

I lost 50 pounds last year, but gained most of it back, time to start anew.

Rewards for weight loss:

320 - A new MLP for my collection
310 - A new top
300 - Hair highlights
280 -A new dress
260 - Night out W/ friends
240 - 2 shirts from We love fine
210 - Spa Day
180 - Sky Diving
160 - A horseback riding holiday in Ireland and my own horse.

Personal Information:
I love to write and draw and have written 2 novels. I live with my husband in Sydney Australia.

Other Information:
Moved to Australia May 1st.

My highest weight that I can remember was about 370 pounds.

    staying strong is taking care of YOU! Sounds like you need to get feeling better again before you can give it your all. In the meantime just work on the baby steps....water, water,water!!! LOL!

    I still did my cardio/strength training even though I almost got sick. =/

    Been dealing with a nasty arm rash/hive breakouts for the last few days, and I spend almost all my nights awake, scratching, and miserable.

    Welcome to Spark People! I've been here 2 months and have seen great results! I can't wait to see what you can accomplish here!!

    I also do the LS dvds....I would start slow if I were don't want to wear yourself out before you are even started!! Do half of the tapes or even 10 minutes every day and work yourself up from there! As long as you enter the exercise you are doing in your exercise goals area, you will lose weight if you stay in your ranges! Just start slow and work into it!!

    I highly recommend using the nutrition tracker faithfully! It really keeps me in line...and allow yourself some treats....I give myself permission to eat things I can, you just need to plan for it! This isn't a diet....this is my new lifestyle, and I can't do that without chocolate!! LOL!

    I am walking the 100# journey along with can do's just ONE healthy choice at a time.....don't look years or months or weeks down the road....just ONE choice at a time! Ask yourself what you'd rather have...the cookie or a ride on the rollercoaster/horse/etc! Nothing tastes as good as thin will feel!!!

    Remember, success is getting up one more time than you fall!
