SP And BLC Journey

Friday, July 05, 2013

My story is just that a journey. I started losing weight because my gastorentologist told me if I did not I would die in 10 yrs. or less. In trying to find my faulty gallbladder they also found I had fatty liver. So I went on a journey to loss 100#. I did that and more. A good friend introduced me to SP. she used it to track her fitness and loved the site. She saved my life starting in Jan. 2008. In May of 2007 I was nearly 350 if not more and I decided on my own I needed to do something. In Jan. I learned I HAD to do something and I did. By Aug. of 2009 I was down to 210#. I then went on a roller coaster. I had my second knee surgery and lost my job and a best friend all in the same month.
I kept my weight nearly off. I started a new job in Oct. A job I hated and I worked there for 10 months. Then went 8 months not working and worried.
In 2011 I started commuting 3 hrs. A day to a job I love but that meant being out of the house 12 hrs. A day. It has been hard to get a routine down however I decided that 2013 would be the year when I was reaching 280# I was not going back to where I had been and I don't want to die young!
So I joined BLC in January and now in 2013 I am 40# down. I am SSS Proud. I give every challenge my all. I love being part of a team but I am in this for me and I want this for me and my life!
I think BLC is about consistency and being honest with yourself and your willingness to commit to the process and desire to get healthy.

Journey in 2013 and what I have learned!!!

    YOU ROCK! I wish I'd never have lost contact so I could have supported you more during those tough times. However, I found you again and this time you're not getting away.
    The BLC is a fantastic tool to help on this journey. I am so proud of you for maintaining most of your loss and the way you've been really working it this year. I've missed you and your smiling face.
