Been here, done this!

I have always been at battle with my weight, When I was 28 I was successful with sparkpeople and lost 180lbs over a year and a half! Life got in the way, I got married and divorced, changed jobs and joined EMS (Emergency Medical Services). Needless to say, my body has taken the toll of stress, lack of sleep and focus on career instead of health!

I've made a few weak attempts to regain control over the last five years...but needless to say I wasn't very successful. Last summer I obtained a good job position with a new company as a Paramedic, and I used that big change to start curtailing some of my habits. I lost 10lbs prior to winter. I wasn't overly consistent through winter, but maintained the loss at least.

At 289 pounds this June I decided to try a different tactic, my brain had twisted the way I counted and could use calories so much that i was floundering, unhappy and irritable. I joined Weight Watchers on June 14th, and have lost just over 20lbs!

I find myself enjoying the way I think and use food now, but missing the connection and motivation I have always recieved from Sparkpeople and it's community.

So here I am....planning to enjoy the best of both worlds! In person accountability and support with Weight watchers, and the online resources and connection I get here at sparkpeople!

Happy Sparking my friends!
