Update: 03/01/2010
During my pregnancy I gained almost 50 lbs. :( I know, I stopped exercising as much and gave in to my craving. So far, I've lost about 27 lbs bring my current weight to 249. I have to lose 20 lbs to get to my lowest weight of 228 which I reached last June after 6 hard months of lifestyle changes. I know I can do this again and I have set new goals for myself as well. I cannot fully exercise until I receive the go ahead at my h6 week apt because my delivery was c-section but I am calorie counting and doing small exercising starting today! I cant wait to get back to the gym and I am determined to lose the 20lbs before I return to the gym.

New Goals:
03/22/2010: 237
04/12/2010: 225
05/03/2010: 213
05/24/2010: 201
06/14/2010: 189
07/05/2010: 177
07/26/2010: 165
08/16/2010: 153-Goal!


62lbs gone forever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Current Weight: 230 down from 292.5!

I will never be that big again. I guarantee it! NEVER.

Here's a little background on me:

I've been fat all my life. I knew nothing about nutrition-it wasn't something that big value was placed on in my family unfortunately. So starting this mission is me learning how to eat from the very beginning. I never was one to eat a lot of food-I just ate the wrong things.

My new "lifestyle" regimen is basically just eating veggies, lean protein, fruit and whole wheats. I do count calories and I watch my intake of sugar, sodium and carbs to make sure I don't go over the daily allowance. I make sure to eat 3 meals and 2 snacks everyday. So I'm never really hungry. Oddly enough-I haven't had any strong cravings since I started this diet (and I was a chocolate Fiend!).

My highest weight ever was 292-this was actually my starting weight on Jan 1st 09'. When I saw that on the scale-I literally cried. And that day, I put my weight loss plan into full drive.

I totally feel that for me, losing weight was more of a mental thing than anything else. I've never been this determined!!

To be honest with myself and my fellow sparkers-I am somewhat of a slave to the scale. I weigh myself twice a week because I like to know where I stand so if I need to add/remove/alter something in my diet or exercise. This is not good-but it's my truth right now. I am aiming to be in the healthy range (Bmi) at the end of my journey.

Goal 1-Feb.7/:270
**Goal Met! Exceeded goal on feb 23rd weighing 268 (after 2 weeks of plateauing)

Goal 2-March 14: 265-(1 lb away from goal on Feb. 26-weighed in @ 266.0
**Goal 2 reached and exceeded on 03/05/09-weighed in @ 263.5!! YAY!!!!

Goal 3-March 28th: 260 (my B-day weekend)
**Goal met! 03/12/09! Weighed in @ 259.5

Goal 4-April 18:250-I'm coming to get you baby!
**Goal Met! 04/12/08! Weighed in @ 249.5

Goal 4- May 23:238-Your next baby!
**Goal Met! 05/17/09

Goal 5-June 27:226
Goal 6-August 1: 214
Goal 7-September 5: 202
Goal 8-October 10: 190
Goal 9- November 14: 178
Goal 10-December 19:166

Once I get to 200lbs-I plan to buy some Christian Louboutins! Or have my fiance buy them...hehe.

    The symbol for Aries is the Ram, because of the headlong, direct, and assertive nature of the sign. The sign is also symbolized by seeds shooting out of the ground in the springtime, suggesting a time and spirit of renewal.

    The Aries girl wanted to be like her father, so she loves being outside & isn't cut out to be a stay-at-home-mom. She has to much to offer the world. She isn't meant to be fat, at she is an athlete at heart. She loves to win and show others how things should be done. She makes a good therapist. She gets along with Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, Aquarius, and another Aries who can match her energy.

    In Aries, the Sun is highly action oriented. You like to do your thing, and you are opinionated and direct in doing it. Your Aries personality constantly wants to charge ahead, and insists on being the one who organizes, rather than ever allowing yourself to be led or organized by others. You have a hard time recognizing any point of view except your own. Highly action oriented, when an idea strikes you, you are off quickly to carry it out. Yet you are not so good in seeing projects through to a conclusion. Follow-up and finish work are not matters that suit your style. You constantly need new goals, new projects, and new challenges.
    You are a quick learner and a self-starter; enthusiastic and curious. The main challenge for an Aries Sun sign native is the control of impulses. You must avoid scattering forces, for if you can learn to think before taking action, your energetic nature will enable you to do much. Natural impulsiveness and inability to listen to the advice of others sometimes involves you in difficulties. To succeed, you must learn to think everything through carefully before you proceed. Patience and the ability to plan are areas in which you may have to apply extra effort. You must reflect on the total effect of your actions to grow and progress in life.

    You may have a sharp temper and a quick fuse as Aries is ruled by Mars, the planet associated with war and combat. Fortunately, you get over anger as quickly as it comes, and you never hold a grudge. You are neither devious nor subtle in your actions. Many Aries Sun natives are down right blunt. Only with concentration and attention can you ever acquire much diplomacy and tact.
    With your natural Aries inclinations, you have a true adventurer's or pioneer's spirit; a longing for independence and a tendency to fancy yourself as a free soul. Born to lead, but not born to handle the mundane responsibility or bureaucratic red tape. When faced with complex details, you become very frustrated. Fully matured, your Aries spirit aspires to a gallant "never say die" attitude, and a willingness to take advantage of each new opportunity that comes along.
