Weight: 187

I know it sounds funny but alot of times when we are losing weight we look at the actor, model or somebody who we think have the type of body we want to have and the body I want is the one I used to have so my goal is to have a body like me, the tiny waist with the junk in the trunk. Of course a couple of upgrades my I loved the way I was shaped at 128 - 135 and even 7 years before I had my baby at 145 I was very pleased. When I recently lost the weight to reach 169 (I am that weight in the pictures on my homepage) everybody thought I was wearing an 8 and weighing 150. They were about 20 pounds and 1 -2 sizes under but the compliments made me feel great just the same. But I do realize now that I work out more 169 looks different on me now than it did back then. So, I gained some weight back I am 187 pounds and I am debating about that 135 goal I may look to skinny but I'll deal with it when I get there because I want to look like ME!

I have joined which seems like a fabulous group of ladies called the Caramel Candy Cuties and have named myself Dark Chocolate (some say I am more like milk chocolate but nevertheless) and I plan on kicking butts and taking names the next couple of months.

One of my greatest challenges was staying in touch when I traveled so I now have one of those ANDROID phones and I feel more tapped in and think this will be a bonus to my regime because I realize I did my best when I was on Sparkpeople. Having the ability to share your triumphs and disappointments just was better.

I will be logging my weekly numbers and the closer I get to 135 I will post and you tell me DO I LOOK LIKE ME? lol
