Hello all! I am a fitness professional trying to get back to my peak fitness once again. I just moved back to AZ where you can be active outdoors year-round easily. My goal is to get back to where I was a year ago prior to my foot and back injuries. I'd eventually like to test out a half-marathon and get the Jillian Michaels body. I love being outdoors so sports and hiking are what I love.

About 4 years ago I began my weight loss journey. I was very active in school with sports but ate horribly and was overweight. When I got to college, I gained 30 more pounds and was at 225+. I ran out of blood pressure pills one month and decided I seriously needed to take care of myself. After that, I logged everything I ate, read diet tips and healthy eating daily, and logged in my fitness. Holding yourself accountable is the most important part. At my peak, I was down to 155 but with my height it looked funny so I'm aiming for 160.

After maintaining my weight for 3 years I settled down and moved in with my boyfriend which was a diet disaster. I began eating whatever he ate and found myself edging back towards 180-185 again. I was trying everything and not losing anything but once I got active again I lost a little and to lose the rest I'm going back to what I did previously so I joined Sparkpeople to finish up those last 15 lbs.!

If you ever need help or motivation, friend me and ask. Good luck all!

    Ahhhhh, I see. I felt that way when we went to Montana......prairie, prairie (where the hell is the good stuff my husband promised me)....prairie.....oh THERE it is! Hello Glacier Park

    Granted, I live on the prairies too, but pretty much in less than 2 hours in any direction I am in the woods, desert or a lake, so I'll take it!

    I can't believe you lived in SD - one of my favourite places on Earth! The hiking, paddling, cycling - I love it! Such beautiful country side and we always meet the coolest people. Plus the campground we stay at (Rafter J) is dog friendly as are most of the trails.

    Obviously it's a bit of a drive from good 'ole Winnipeg, but it's been well worth it for us.

    This year we are going to branch out and go Colorado - somewhere else I truly love - maybe I need to re-locate!
