"I make sure I eat well without depriving myself of the things that I love. Everything in moderation." --Kate Hudson

I have regained some weight, but not letting it get me down! I am picking up this journey at year four with as much enthusiasm as in year one and excited about all the new challenges and experiences to come! I started at 251 pounds and lost 91 pounds within my first 2 years, gained back 25 pounds within my 3rd year, and in my fourth year am looking to make it to 100 Pounds Lost! I have bipolar I disorder and a back injury which makes things a struggle sometimes, but I am seeing a chiropractor and am in physical therapy for my back and am making strides with that and with my bipolar disorder I am seeing improvements every day! Right now my depression is back under control after a long bout of severe depression that lasted about eight months and I am excited to move forward and accomplish new goals and revisit old milestones. I credit Sparkpeople for helping me to address my emotional eating and to tackle small goals each day and I have now set some practical, activity and nutrition goals that I am striving to meet and I am blogging about it daily so come join me! I'm not on an extreme diet and I don't have a hardcore exercise plan--I'm losing the weight with a healthy moderate eating plan and simple exercise and I'm willing to share everything I learn in my journey--and a lot of my experience with bipolar disorder and my progress towards being able to do more as I progress in physical therapy--with those that are looking for a plan that isn't overwhelming or restrictive.

Fitness Minutes: 53,536

My Goals:
To have fun! Staying motivated and doing what I can when I can. Practicing mindfulness and good nutritional habits while staying active. Drinking more water, try to get more than 4 cups a day! NO negative self talk! Lose 1/2 to 1 pound a week and exercise 5 days a week. Eat more fruits and vegetables, at least 3 servings/day.

Weekly Activity & Nutrition Goals:

Activity Minutes: 150
Calories Burned Through Exercise: 1500
Calories Consumed Weekly Limit: 12,600
Miles Walked: 21
Weight Goal: 0.5-1 lb a week


My Program:
I use my Fitbit and Sparkcoach together to help me achieve the best results. I track my food, fitness, and sleep, and I also have a MyHydrate bottle that tracks my water. My program is pretty simple, I basically count calories and eat in moderation, endeavour to be more active, stay hydrated, make healthy choices, and stay positive.



Personal Information:
I'm from Wisconsin. I'm a Buddhist. I have a wonderful son and fluffy Pomeranian and in my spare time I enjoy reading, writing, cooking, gardening, makeup, and every so often a British comedy.


Other Information:
I'm challenging myself to commit to my Fitbit & Spark for the next year so feel free to follow along with me as I will be blogging about it every day! I've set some activity & nutrition goals along with working on practical life skills and it's time to get to my goal range of 144-154!
