A New Year....A New ME!!!

I've been on and off of diets since I was 18....I've actually hit my highest weight ever. I don't think I weighed this much when I was pregnant with either of my kids.

I've been "sparking" on and off this year, but to tell you the truth, the committment to change was never real. I told myself I would, but I knew deep down that I hadn't really devoted myself fully to a "new lifestyle". This year has been full of horrible, rotten, terrible days. At times, it was all I could do ...

I've been "sparking" on and off this year, but to tell you the truth, the committment to change was never real. I told myself I would, but I knew deep down that I hadn't really devoted myself fully to a "new lifestyle". This year has been full of horrible, rotten, terrible days. At times, it was all I could do just to get out of bed in the morning. I haven't lost any weight and my life has been completely out of control. But, I did make at least one change...a real change! I am a runner....a very, very slow runner, but a runner still. I wasn't sure that I would ever be able to run 3 miles, and now thanks to Sparkpeople (and C25K) I can.

I am now ready and COMMITTED to truly TAKE CONTROL over the rest of my life. I know I can lose weight, I've done it before (many, many, many times), but I've never COMMITTED myself to a "LIFESTYLE CHANGE". Today, I make that committment outloud to everyone and most importantly down deep inside, to myself. A New Year...a NEW ME!!!!

Fitness Minutes: 1,815

My Goals:
1. Finish my Terminal Project by January 23, 2011 in order to complete my doctorate program.

2. RUN at least one 5K by the end of 2011.

3. Lose 15 pounds by March 5, 2011, my graduation date.

4. Overall goal weight: 165

My Program:
I've started and restarted and restarted again....I've dieted (Nutrisystem, Weight Watchers, Lindora, etc.).

I finally realize that this isn't about starting a diet...it's about CHANGING my life!

Currently I run 3 miles a few times a week, but I need to do more. I just renewed my gym membership and we bought a Wii for Christmas...so my plan is to workout at least 5 times a week.

Personal Information:
I am a 40 year old woman with 3 kids and a husband. I work in healthcare and I know what being overweight does to my body. So why am I overweight, why have I let this get so out of control???? I am an emotional eater and have eaten myself through my problems.... I am now ready to deal with life and deal with my problems in a face on instead of face in food manner!
