My motivation is being able to grow old with my sister and become crotchety old wind bags that go to the grocery store at the worst time of day for all the young people and walk really slowly and write a check for 10 cans of Mighty Dog and some Depends.

In 2010 I managed to lose 60-lbs with spark. In September I fell off the wagon.

I am back again - not having done much of anything healthy in a while.

Trained for 2½ months and barely finished the Warrior Dash on 3/16/13.

Found out in July of 2013 that I had a torn tendon in my foot near my heel which was causing severe pain. Doctor told me to get custom insoles (I did) and to stay off it "as much as possible" for 4-6 weeks. It took closer to 6 months for it to stop hurting constantly.

3/29/14 - Hit rock bottom when I got kicked off two roller coasters for being too fat to get buckled in.

4/2/14 - started exercising & eating right again for the first time in 10 months.

Personal Information:
I'm Amber and I live in Pasadena Texas.

I've struggled with weight since my daughter was born nearly 20 years ago!

Since then I've only been below 200-lbs. once for a few months and I got that way from practically starving myself on canned fruit and homemade milkshakes made from milk, ice, and vanilla extract.

In my spare time I like to read, scrapbook, make jewelry, and start household projects and never finish them. My family enjoys camping, geocaching and playing board/card games.

    Hi there !!!! I just realized you wrote on my page, of course I remember you!!! How have you been, how is your weight loss journey going? I have lost 80 lbs from my 302 which was my heighest, been stuck in the 230-220 range for about 6 months, finally decided I am going to try low carb and see if my body reacts to that, would like to get off another 70 lbs as fast as it came off the first time.

    Hope all is well with you!!!
