My Goals:
My goal is to get to 140 pounds; when is not so much on my mind. I have a long way to go and I want to focus on doing things in a healthy way, producing a downward trend with weight loss.
UPDATE: As of 06/16/12, I set a goal to lose 139 pounds in one year. This new goal was sparked by a visit to the BMV (blog called "It All Started with a Visit to the BMV" - dated 06/23/12). This, coupled with a desire to finally get my surgeries scheduled, has motivated me greatly. I realize that it's a lot to lose in one year, but it is something to shoot for!
*****10/13/12: Struggle, struggle, struggle, but not giving up!

My Program:
I have some hernias that will require surgery, but I am not letting them stop me! I work out for at least thirty minutes nearly every day, with strength training twice per week. It is the food part of the equation that is difficult for me, but I am working with the recommendations my SP tracker gives me.

Personal Information:
My name is Jackie and I live in northwest Ohio. I am married (twelve years!), work fulltime, and I have a nearly sixteen year old stepson. I also have three cats and four dogs!

Other Information:
I love to read, watch favorite TV shows and movies, and spend time with my family. I am a rabid Ohio State Buckeyes fan, Columbus Blue Jackets fan, and Columbus Crew fan.

I love anything Monty Python, especially Holy Grail! I am also a fan of Doctor Who, MST 3K, Mythbusters, GRIMM, The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, The Big Bang Theory, Whose Line Is It Anyway, etc. I also love documentaries.

Success is not a race, be patient.
Success leads to success.
Success is always a work in progress.
Success doesn't come to you--you go to it.
Success is a journey, not a destination. Focus on the process.
Some people dream about success... while others wake up and work hard at it.
Success is achieved and maintained by those who try-and keep trying.
Everyday is a good day to SUCCEED!
If at first you don't succeed-try, try again - Author unknown

"Every day of our lives we are faced with a choice.
The choice to BE, or to be truly AMAZING.
Ask yourself if what you're doing today is getting you closer to where you want to be tomorrow.
No matter who you are, or what you do, you absolutely, positively do have the power to TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE."
-Lorna Jane
