I started my journey here on SparkPeople in 2011 with many fits and starts. I lost a lot of weight in the beginning, which helped to keep me on track, then, I hit the dreaded plateau that I never thought would end. I was gaining and losing the same pounds over and over again. It was so frustrating. In the beginning the weight loss was easy because my MD helped me switch from ANY drug that had weight-gain as a side effect to other drugs where it wasn't a side effect, or not likely to be a side effect. When we did all that switching around, it really helped. Then I needed to keep my thyroid under control - another weight-gain side effect. Then, everything just stopped! The scale stopped moving for a long time and I almost gave up. Then I'd lose tenths of a pound here and there, and then gain it all back. I really do owe all of the support to some of the great teams that I belong to - they kept me going. Then it was the same lose a couple, gain a couple - more frustration. When I started here, I weighed 196. I rounded it off because I wasn't going to count the tenths of a pound - 'til I hit that plateau. Any ways, today I weighed 150.6! Since I rounded off to begin with, I'm rounding off now and counting it as a FORTY-POUND WEIGHT LOSS!!! It took me just over 10 years, but I DID IT!!!! So, if I can do it - you can do it! Deirdre

My Goals:
My goal is to lead a healthier lifestyle. I'd like to exercise more and eat healthier. I'm hoping that SparkPeople can help me achieve my goals.


My Program:
I drink plenty of water every day. The only other drink I have is my cup of tea in the AM.

I wear a pedometer every day to track my steps, miles and calories burned. I record them all here. My new goal is at least 10,000 steps per day.
