I am so proud of myself for killing that intermediate flow class. All that anxiety was for nothing.

Hi Lovely Friends!

In 2012 I was 207lbs & I had the realization that I needed to make a change.I found Spark & I tracked, ate within my ranges, made it priority to work out harder than ever and 50lbs came off & have stayed off. Currently I am still not 100% at my "goal weight", but I have come to reflect on those 2 years & I realized, although I lost that weight, I was the most stressed out,obsessive and unhappy while dieting.

Hi Lovely Friends!

In 2012 I was 207lbs & I had the realization that I needed to make a change.I found Spark & I tracked, ate within my ranges, made it priority to work out harder than ever and 50lbs came off & have stayed off. Currently I am still not 100% at my "goal weight", but I have come to reflect on those 2 years & I realized, although I lost that weight, I was the most stressed out,obsessive and unhappy while dieting.
I am resetting my life. I have achieved so many other life goals during that time and am so proud of myself. However,I can thank that time for introducing me to things I never thought in a million years I could do. I am a runner,a cyclist, a boot camper, a yogi and have found peace through meditation. I have explored and learnt so much about my body and how it works physically,mentally and nutritionally. I have a great basis now to propel my new direction into better overall health. Life is too short to beat yourself up over calories and whether or not you worked out enough to burn said calories. If being active results in losing weight so be it but the scale won't control me anymore, my happiness will.
I.CAN.DO.THIS.

Pre-pregnancy I had years of trying to figure my body out. Right now I'm doing what's best for the baby, but once s/he is on the outside, I'm back at the giant puzzle known as Emily's Body. I really don't know what combination of workout + food my body needs, as I've tried every combo possible-- and I kept gaining weight. I would love to go to a trainer and nutritionist or doctor or someone to help me figure my body out, but that means $$ and we just don't have that flexibility right now. If that's available to you, I would definitely keep it as an option.

The incredibly frustrating part is I've lost weight twice (around 20 or more lbs). The first time was in high school. I did Weight Watchers and I danced. No gym, no lifting. Just my usual dance classes and stuff. The second time was in college and I went to the gym and did cardio and lifting for a summer and lost weight. I don't remember what food I was eating, but it worked!

And now? Ugh. I joined WW again in law school and GAINED weight. I was under the constant stress of law school and then the bar exam. I finally passed the bar exam and then had the stress of not having a job. Then I found out I was pregnant! WHEW! I am praying that pregnancy "resets" (or something) my body and it works itself out that I can lose weight. I don't know. We'll see.

If you're crazy, we're all crazy, and at least we'll have good company then!

Oh man, I totally get that. Sometimes it's really hard. I have had many moments (and will have again) where I'm saying I shouldn't eat the chips as I'm shoving the chips in my mouth. Or burgers. Or tacos. Or anything.

The struggle is real.

No guilt. emoticon It is a once in awhile treat! Dinner will be broccoli with tangerine juice & turkey, & fresh apple slices. I don't always talk about my food things, just letting you know how I handle a 'real' lifestyle change. emoticon

I'm determined to make it work this time. Plus, I'm in the midst of being a new Auntie (next week!!) and I want to be a good role-model. It's cheesy, but legit.

You'll find your spot, but it's an annoying journey, huh? Every time you think you found it, there it goes again! So dumb. I wasn't super happy before either, I felt like it totally owned my life. I'm finding the balance... I hope....

Wrestlemania will be interesting. I've kind of always loved it too, so this is the four of us living out a childhood dream I suppose! I'll let you know how it is. Maybe you guys will make it there one day!

It is a really different feeling from the bound headstand, but it was easier for me to keep my shoulders up. Maybe if I get used to that it will be easier to feel where they should be in bound, ya know? Thanks for the tips, I really do appreciate them!
