The Risk it Takes to Blossom

2006 -- Joined Sparkpeople
2009 -- Actually started using it! Lost 38 pounds.
2012 -- Had regained 30 pounds and turned back to Spark -- lost 70 pounds! Got within spitting distance of my goal.
2014 -- Regained 20 pounds.

So, where am I at now? I'm determined. I'm ferocious. I'm ready to keep banging my head against the wall until I figure out what will work for me. I see now that it isn't enough to lose weight -- it has to be sustainable, you have to be able to keep it off. There is no magic recipe -- the formula for success is constantly changing. And I am determined to keep up.

My Goals:
My ultimate goal is to be happy and healthy in all arenas of my life. Many people in my family have struggled with their weight and I hope to break free of the cycle and blaze my own trail. As of July 2013, I have lost 70 pounds!

My Program:
Dancing 6 days a week.
Strength Training 3 days a week.
Walking 2 to 4 miles a day.
I try to eat REAL FOOD, not merely food like substances.
I drink my water and try to get appropriate sleep.
I also actively seek to manage and reduce my stress through prayer, exercise and relaxation.

Personal Information:
I love all things artsy, from paintings to films to music. I graduated from law school in May of 2011. I love to swim, dance and walk by the beach. I love California and all of our wonderful beaches, forests, wines and cheeses. :)
