Start Weight:(07 Feb 12) 200.0 lb
Current Weight:(30 Jul 15) 141.9 lb
Goal Weight:135.0 lb
following: Healthy 90% of the time!!
performance: losing 0.2 lb a week

Update: My kiddos are now 9 and 4!! I've changed so much since this last bio was done. I am a much stronger person now by just accepting myself for who I am .I also wasn't focused so much on the number on the scale this time around. It is just a bonus of taking care of myself. I got to the root of my problems, like depression and alcohol abuse which led to not caring about what I ate. I am almost sober for a year now!! Also, I'm down over 50 lbs. This has been a great year of truly finding my way. I am very proud of myself ;)

I am happily married and have a beautiful 5yr. old daughter and 16 month old son. I lost 40 lbs from October 07~April 08.I got down to my lowest weight of my life (139). My highest weight was when I was 18....I got up to 197 lbs and eventually lost weight and got down to 153 when I was 21. Then thru my 20's I got up to 180 something again and back down to 148.....I'm tired of going from fat to thin over and over. I want to stay healthy and never give up on myself again.

I'm tired of this cycle of getting fit and then being negative and using food to medicate myself.I also find when I get skinny ...I want my "security blanket " back. I think I am over the security blanket part now.I also have learned that others will react and treat you differently when you lose a lot of weight.Dealing with this can throw you a curve ball,so beware.People may not even know how negative of a force they are. Also others will be so positive and happy for you .These are the people you need to surround yourself with.Support is key to success.
It's so easy to fall back into old habits.
I think I've learned my lesson now.
....this time I'm going to stay healthy :)
I am going to beat the battle of the "binge". I have always used food for comfort or when I was stressed. I am going to break that cycle and never use junk food as a drug again.

Remember to measure yourself. You could lose inches and no weight.

Workin hard and not seeing results?
I think you mainly have to figure it out for yourself. I have gotten through many plateaus in the past 6 months. I was eating no less than 2000 cals for most of that time but only maintaining my weight. I've lost 10 more lbs now since getting a fitbit charge hr. I connect and log food on myfitnesspal. I usually eat 1600-2000 cals a day . Some days 2500 cals! But I eat healthy 90% of the time. I am 35yrs old, 5'4" , and 143 lbs. I usually, walk,run,or do the elliptical for excercise and weight lift when I feel like it lol.

People treating you differently
I thought I'd share this article because the last time I lost 40 lbs and was the smallest I'd EVER been ,I was thrown off track and completely blown away at how some people react to your success.This time I am well on my way losing these 40 lbs again for the final time! My goal is to keep it off and live this healthy lifestyle forever. I am very happy when I am being the best I can be and I will never let others negativity bring me down again!! Learning from mistakes is key and loving yourself.You are worth it!!

New Ruby season starts tonight on Style!!
The new season of Ruby is on tonight on Style. I love this show. My husband doesn't get how I can even want to watch it. (he just don't get it) Just cause I've never been over 200 lbs doesn't mean I'm not a food addict. I totally relate to Ruby and love her spirit.Very Happy

Good for you for wanting to sneak in a healthier choice. I've gone with friends that get candy and's just so bad for you. When I go to the movies I don't even get snacks. Anyways, I think the trail mix idea is a great way to go, or a blowpop, hard candy, or gum ......????
