I joined SP in Feb 2006 and then "life" happened & I stopped coming here. I was 242 (aprox) when I joined in 2006.

My highest weight was 267.5 I am 5'2". My goal weight is 150. At goal a total of 117.5 lbs will be gone!

I am 50 yrs old now & remain married ;)

Last summer (2011) I was down to 208 and then I went off plan & regained most of it back. Going up to 259.0 again. Today I am at 247.9 (8/25/2012)

I am using the insulin resistance plan. I used it before and loved it. It fit right into my life style. It is high protein (lean), no white rice, bread, pasta etc and low fat. Lots of vegs and some fruit. If you want to know more about this plan feel free to contact me.

I have a serious back injury & last spring had both of my knees replaced, so getting back into exercise is going to be a challenge.

*EDITED/UPDATED On 11/12/12* I have been going through a really rough patch with some personal issues and am sad to admit I have ate my way through them. Putting me at a all time new high weight as of10/31/12 at 276 lbs. I weighed in today 11/12/12 at 270.7 The "rough patch" is not over & I am so scared I will start to eat bad again & regain these 5.3 I've lost.....sigh This weight issue is going to be with me forever :(

    My message to help motivate you & ( Especialy ) Me this week is

    “Don't wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful.”

    emoticon Spark Buddie,

    My message to help motivate you & ( Especialy ) Me this week is

    “Don't rely on someone else for your happiness and self-worth. Only you can be responsible for that. If you can't love and respect yourself – no one else will be able to make that happen. Accept who you are – completely; the good and the bad – and make changes as YOU see fit – not because you think someone else wants you to be different.”
    – Stacey Charter

    Have a Fabulous Week !!!
