NOTE: I've lost 93lbs with SparkPeople and have lost ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTEEN POUNDS total! As of August 28, 2014 I am working on maintaining that loss.

My name is Andrea, I'm 33, married, so far childless and looking to lose some extra pounds! I don't want to be a stick, but I want to be healthy, and I don't want to be plus-sized anymore. I'm aiming for an 8 as an ultimate goal, since I've never been thin enough to wear a 8, and it's a single digit, woot woot! (I'm currently in a 10, and if the 8 I wear is a pair of stretchy pants I'm totally cool with not going below a 10.) ETA June 2014 - I currently own a SIZE 8 pair of capris!! ETA November 2014 - I also own a size 6 in dress pants!

I have a wonderful husband and a 3 year old Boston Terrier named Bingley who is like my child. (No I don't walk him in a stroller or anything, but I love him just as much as I would my own child.)

For the Hamstrings you should do some of the Essentrics/Classical Stretch she has some little mini workouts you can look at and find one that helps the lower body and just keep at it. Also she said the foam roller was helpful and I got one of those recently and that thing really is a torture device! HAHA

For the Goblet Squat getting lower she said it's okay to only go as far as you can for now and as you build strength the mobility will come. I get pain in my hips if I go too low so I have to stop at that point and build up which is a bit lower than 90 degrees.

Definitely get your squat form down first before weighting it, I know that's really important. You might want to consider finding an RKC Certified person near you and even if you just do 1 session with them to help you with anything you might need help or advice with might be awesome for you! I know for me it's totally worth it! Most of them have that job because they really love helping people and are willing to work with whatever you want to do.

Also all the stretching in the hips has been helping me with that too I can tell I have more mobility from doing it already. It all works together nicely! OH and she told me that I could stretch in between sets as well and that would help too because you can get really tight as you do it.

Then she had used the band around my knees to help me understand and feel the form and movement of the squat as well and it felt good too it's like it relieved some of the pressure and I told her that and she said it was because you are recruiting more of the leg muscle to help that way.

hi! hope you found the link interesting. a long time ago I read two books on artistic anatomy. they were transcriptions of lectures by a very famous instructor, named Robert Beverly Hale. He taught at the art students league in new York. I am a fairly intelligent person, and I read very fast--but it took me WEEKS to read these books and I really thought my head might explode--the concepts were so new and strange to me. it taught me a LOT that has stayed with me over the years.
have a great Thursday!!!
