Shared Food Tracker
After being successful with SparkPeople before, I have come back after having my son, Zak. I gained all the weight I had lost before I got pregnant (and unfortunately a little more). Now that we have established our new routine, I am ready to focus on getting healthy again.
1. To get healthy - this means more energy, better food choices, and just feeling good about myself.
2. Lose weight - since I have a lot of weight to lose, I have broken it into smaller goals (to help keep me motivated).
Goal #1 - to lose 10 pounds by the end of December
Goal #2 - to be down to 220# by the end of January
Goal #3 - to hit onderland by June 2010
Goal #4 - to lose the last few pounds....we'll get back to that :)
Eating - eating more fruits/veggies, and making better choices. Cutting out the pop and the excess convenience foods
Exercise - aerobic activity 3x a week and strength training 3x a week
Live south of Cleveland, Ohio with my husband and our five children (15,11,10,4,18 mo).
Teach high school
Enjoy cooking, gardening, my family, and those few quiet moments I actually get :)

Spark has a lot of great tools, and you will learn which ones work best for you. The best tools are the people tho, always willing to lend a hand, an ear, or a shoulder. Ive been here for over a year now, and I still am overwhelmed, every day, by the kindness and goodness of others on this team!! That has made a world of difference for me. I hope you have the same success! ¸¸.¨¸♥¨`*,¸.*´¨`* .¸♥.*.*¨¸.´¸.*
