I skydived for a friend's 18th birthday years ago, at my skinniest, and would LOVE to do it again! There is a weight limit for safety, and I definitely don't qualify at the moment. I'm working towards meeting the safety guidelines so I can feel the freedom of open air again!

I met my new husband on a rock climbing trip, and would like to get back into it. I want to lose weight so I can get back on the wall and enjoy it. I was a strong climber before he ever touched a wall, but ...

I met my new husband on a rock climbing trip, and would like to get back into it. I want to lose weight so I can get back on the wall and enjoy it. I was a strong climber before he ever touched a wall, but it's a lot harder to lug this body up a mountain. He's now a mountaineering school director, and I'm his sometimes belay slave. I'd like it to be a partnership!

I want to be able to enjoy all aspects of the outdoors. I adore camping, and want to be more comfortable taking advantage of all the outdoors has to offer.

My favorite fitness accomplishment was completing the Sea Gull Century (100 kilometers in one day! ~about 65 miles) in October 2009. I'm hoping to add more accomplishments in the near future.

SparkPoints: 21,294

Fitness Minutes: 44,736

My Goals:
I will use the food and exercise trackers more consistently for motivation and accountability.

I will limit my drinking to ONE drink per weeknight, or 3 when out for the evening.

I will go to the gym or workout outside at least 4 times a week.

I will keep in mind my goal of eliminating the medical problems that have cropped up or returned that are linked to my weight.

I will continue to prepare myself one serving of a meal or snack, and not go back for seconds. (I'm doing well on this one!)

I will continue to avoid buffets, and limit myself to 2 plates if the group I'm with is going (generally one meal plate and one dessert plate). (Yeah! Another goal I've been doing well!)

My Program:
*Eat a good, healthy, filling breakfast and lunch

*Avoid snacking on the sofa

*Exercise: Elliptical, walking with friends, or heading to the gym

*Minimum effort calorie boost: Make my house look nice! Instead of sitting around watching TV or playing online, I've been doing active chores that really REALLY need to get done, and make my house more of a home.

Personal Information:
I teach Spanish and a bit of French at a school district near Pittsburgh, PA. I have been a homeowner since June 2007 and am proud of being able to own at what I consider a fairly young age. My family is my wonderful man, 2 kitties, and a ferret.

Other Information:
"From my house I see the moon. From the moon, could I see my house?"

This reminds me to always remember who and where I've been, and to have empathy forothers.

Today's a new day... so resume tracking, resume working out, resume encouraging good cravings.

Fall down six times, get up seven.

Hey!!! :) I added you to my friend. Though you are ahead of me, we have a similar "major" goal and I thought we could be SparkBuddies! :)

Good luck! You are doing great already! ((HUGS))
