I am a 46 year old women with some health issues that losing weight might help. 6/11/08.

02/25/09. An update is needed here. I have lost between 20 and 25 lbs at times through this adventure. Can't seem to keep my motivation intact for very long. My orginial plan was to lose around 60 lbs. Once I figured out what weight would give me a healthy BMI...I had to change that goal...it is now lose to a total of 87 lbs. Boy, I hope I can do this!!!!

05/13/09. I have less than 1 month til my Sparkpeople anniversary!!! I am aiming (and vowing) starting today, to lose more weight. I want to be down to 200 lbs by or on my anniversary date!! Today I weigh by my scale at home...213.5 lbs. Time to change this!!

06/16/09. I have been with Sparkpeople for 1 year and 5 days. In my last update I stated that I wanted to be down to 200lbs by my anniversary date...that did not happen.
I have lost 4.5 lbs since last month...oh well...I knew that trying lose 13.5 in a month was not possible by healthy standards...but 4.5 is ok.

Well....it has been a little more than 10 months since I updated this part of my page.
I have not done so well... I not only did not ever reach my 200lb goal...but I have gained back to 223lbs. That is a gain of @ 10 lbs!!!
This has got to stop!!! Tomorrow... I start anew!!

Update time: It has been about 9 months since I have done this....I am now at my lowest since joining Spark people back in 2008. I am at 203.5 lbs...which means I have lost almost 20 lbs since my last update...not too shabby I guess.....I know if had worked harder I would be so much further along with the weight loss...but hey...I AM AT MY LOWEST WEIGHT!! Woo Hoo!!
