performance: losing 0.1 lb a week

Heaviest weight: 243lbs (2007)

I was never a thin girl by any stretch. I started smoking at 14, the too cool for health phase. In university I started partying a lot with my friends and pretty much ate everything I wanted as I wanted to. Oh so much alcohol. My exercise mantra was “I do not run unless being chased". I gained my weight all through university, and by the time I graduated I was somewhere around 243 lbs at 5'3 - and 22 years old. I decided to get on with it already.

I moved to Ireland for a new job, quit smoking & started cycling to and from work. This was no small feat on Irish hills, carrying around an extra 100+lbs. I am not too proud to admit I walked that damn bike up hills on more than one occasion.

When I moved back to Canada, I was 187 lbs. I joined Herbal Magic and decided to get this weight off once and for all. I did not take their supplements - way too much money and I refused to be dependent on pills to get over hurdles, I just stuck to their good eating rules. I lost another 60 lbs and 55 inches off my body. I completed my first 5km in October 2009 and have run it every year since! I continue to train for the 10km with these flat feet!

I have kept the weight off for several years now, but I still fluctuate about 30 lbs (130-160). They are not kidding when they say maintenance is hard.

I am a happily married lady now. I met my husband at my heaviest weight, which always makes me smile. My goal is to balance out so I don’t fluctuate quite so much. I would like to get down to 125 but am not stuck on a number. I simply want to be in a healthy weight range for my height and age, and actually enjoy my body! I am done being in sweaters in the middle of summer. Next year its bikini village... well at least not dreading one piece shopping! Extra skin be damned! It’s my turn.

What do you add to your salad to jazz it up?
goat cheese, beets, seeds, pickled peppers/onions, flavoured oils, balsamics, poppy seed dressing... I am becoming good at this salad thing. but goat cheese is a must.
Try this:
spinach 2 cups, goat cheese 1 ounce crumbled, 1/4cup of dried cranberries, sliced almonds, and balsamic vinaigrette. Beets go well here too.
