I discovered hiking just before the temps hit permanent triple digits. Way to go, me. :-/





Time lapse, photo #1... 266#; my goal is to ditch 100#





About halfway to goal, almost 50 lbs gone. My MD wanted a before/after (well, during) picture. :-)



I have 9 pics in my gallery

I Can't Get There From Anywhere But Here

This past spring I created a new user name and a new Spark People account; I'm starting over with the goal of getting healthier and more fit. I've been on a couple of "successful" diets before (losing 65 and later 40 pounds) but haven't been able to keep it off. I'm not dieting this time, although I AM tracking my food and making more healthful choices. I plan to make slower, smaller changes with the intent to keep it off this time.

Member Since: 1/2/2014

SparkPoints: 17,465

Fitness Minutes: 5,236

My Goals:
Ultimately I'd like to lose about 100 lbs, but my goal right now is to go from 266 to 250 per my OB/Gyn. [edit: done, ahead of schedule! Current goal 220 by my next f/u]
I want to be healthier, to fit comfortably into seats in theaters, roller coasters and airplanes, and never have to worry that I'll need a seat belt extender. I want to shop for clothing in the Ladies' section. I want to order clothes and bathing suits online. I want to participate in things WITH my family, not near them. I want to make my family proud.

My Program:
I gradually added exercise after getting the OK from my PCP [typically cardio x 25 mins 5-6d/wk + strength x 10 mins 4-5 d/wk].
I track my foods religiously while allowing myself occasional off-plan indulgences. We plan ahead and shop ahead and are significantly reducing our restaurant consumption [well, we'd planned to anyway...]

Personal Information:
I'm from the Virginia Beach area currently living in Phoenix, AZ. I've been happily married for almost 23 years and we have a wonderful, studious, articulate, polite, empathetic and all-around-terrific teenaged girl (yes, really!)

Other Information:
My favorite quote has always been "Stupidity Should Be Painful", but I've coined a new one all my own to live by: "I can't get there from anywhere but here".
Of course there's always, "A year from now, you'll wish you'd started today".
My newest one: "Failure is a bruise, not a tattoo." ~Timber Hawkeye (Buddhist Bootcamp)

Yay I'm so glad you like them! If you like them, I recommend listening to their stations on Spotify or Pandora because you would probably hear some other ones you like too. They're awesome!

Finding new music is just the best. I can be picky about music, but when I find something I like, it makes me super excited!
