06/10 - down 25# here and I love this picture because it looks like I'm down twice that!





07/10 - 35# lost and the ugly truth is revealed - if this doesn't motivate me, nothing will!





09/10 - 46# down. You can see my top is loose on me whereas 3 mos before it was tight laying down.



I have 34 pics in my gallery

My Healthy Evolution

Hi! I'm Misty.

After being seriously injured six years ago while playing volleyball in the best shape of my life and, as a result, being bedridden/housebound for four years, I have recently started paying more attention to my health. Having just entered the mid-30-somethings, knowing I beat the odds of being confined to a wheelchair for life because I was so physically fit at the time and knowing wheelchair confinement is still a very real threat, I find it more important than ...
Hi! I'm Misty.

After being seriously injured six years ago while playing volleyball in the best shape of my life and, as a result, being bedridden/housebound for four years, I have recently started paying more attention to my health. Having just entered the mid-30-somethings, knowing I beat the odds of being confined to a wheelchair for life because I was so physically fit at the time and knowing wheelchair confinement is still a very real threat, I find it more important than ever to take care of myself. As this is yet another statistic I intend to beat.

As one can imagine, those four years in bed, on all that medication did not do kind things to my physique. The pain of the injuries is still present, but I've found inactivity causes more pain than overactivity. So, I am now on a mission, a mission to reduce pain through activity and, primarily, to dodge my 'sentence' and regain a lost part of me; the active, fit, healthy, happy me I loved and have missed so dearly.

If you have any tips, advice, etc., please feel free to contact me.

Good luck on your journey and good health to you.

Misty

***GOALS***
To lose 66 lbs. (216 down to 150) in six months (April 27, 2010 to November 1, 2010).

07/29/2010 UPDATE: I am now midway through my time allottment and, no thanks to the month of July (only a 7 lb loss for the month) and my social calendar, I'm midway to goal. I'm hoping August's social calendar will be a bit kinder to the waistline and I can push myself a bit ahead of schedule. I'd love to see a size 10 by end of August as my 12s are now a bit loose.

MINI GOALS:
10 lost = mani/pedi - DONE 05/10/2010
20 lost = workout clothes - DONE - 05/27/2010
32.5 lost = purchase fit shoes - DONE - 07/19/2010
40 lost = new bras
50 lost = new casual clothes
65 lost = new dress clothes
BONUS GOALS:
80 lost = a trip (destination TBD)
90 lost = a convertible (year, make & model TBD)

Good to hear from you. Sorry I've not been Sparking in awhile. Hope you are doing better and not in such pain. Lost my desire to Spark but not to lose. My limp seems to come and go. I'm up 35 lbs from my lowest but truly feeling the desire to get a grip and get it off AGAIN.

Hope you find a satisfying job and for now are enjoying the beautiful rich colored Fall weather. emoticon

Glad to hear you are back to Sparking. I have not been here much and my scale shows it. It's much like my visits to the Y last fall and early winter. I was going but started gaining and gave up then did the same with SP a couple months ago. I am back today with ambitions for losing again. The cooler weather will certainly help. I'm up 30 from my lowest but still down 40 from my highest. It's time! I'm healed, have a limp but I think it's caused from the spinal stenosis and arthritis. Hell gettin' old! lol Hope you find an acceptable job and keep up the good work with meeting your goal. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

It's not good for little girls to drive themselves like YOU are doing! Please be mindful of your health or when the holiday comes and you get some time off, you won't be able to function. BTW, my date is next Tues, the 21st, God willin' and my rash doesn't cause a cancel. :( Miss you, gf!! Be careful out there!! The fools will be out driving like it's a sunny summer day!! Needing a blog or email, I'm thinkin'. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hi! Thanks for the note. I was getting concerned, but understand now why you've not been around. The hip got nasty sore late yesterday afternoon and evening, so went to bed by 830, then woke twice by midnight and realized that I hadn't taken bedtime med, so slept til 3. Might go back to bed for awhile. All in all, I'm good. Ate too much for Thanksgiving, but working on that nowdays. Hope you're able to get enough rest so that your aches aren't increasing. THR surgery moved to Dec 21st, so not long now! Looking forward to hearing from you. Take care, kiddo! emoticon emoticon emoticon mary emoticon
