UPDATE: I've finally reached Onederland!! It's an amazing feeling. I've decided that I'm not going to focus on how long it takes me to lose, as long as it moves in the right direction.

I'm back! After a very tumultuous 2013, I'm ready to get back to focusing on my weight. I ended up gaining about 20 pounds from my lowest weight so far of 211 lbs.

I'm working on becoming healthy and staying healthy! My name is Corina and I'm 31 years old. Weight has been a constant struggle for me all of my life. Thankfully, I was never teased or belittled because of it but I always felt like the "fat one" with my family and friends. I've tried the standard diets: weight watchers, low carb, low fat, shakes and diet pills. These all worked for a time but I would always put the weight back on plus some. No more! I want to be someone who loves being active and outdoors. I understand now that there is no quick fix. This journey will be hard but in the end it will be very worth it.

Focus on the goal, not the struggle!
It'll be hard, it'll be WORTH it!

    Welcome to the Ebony Cats team for BLC #16!!!! You should have received an invite to join the BLC sparkteam, but if I missed you for some reason, please let me know and I'll send the invite ASAP!

    There is no "week 0" for this BLC like we've had in BLCs past, so if you haven't already, please try to post your starting weight in the BLC sparkteam forum by Tuesday, September 11th. Week 1's weight is due one week from today (Sunday, September 16th).

    If you have a few spare minutes, please take the time to explore the BLC sparkteam forums! We have a team chat specifically for the Ebony Cats so we can get to know each other and encourage each other throughout the challenge. There are a ton of other threads too, so it's definitely worth checking out!

    I'm excited to get to know you and to see you make a lot of progress toward your goals during this BLC! GO EBONY CATS!!! emoticon

    Hey Buddy. How are you doing on the BLC #14 Week 2 challenges? I got lost in facebook land but now I'm back. Hope everything is going ok for you. A friend told me something the other day I hope will help you like it has helped me. Every moment of every minute of every day is a chance to get back on track for what you want in life. It's never to late to work on your dreams and goals!

    Happy Friday!
