After almost 2 years I'm back on SP. I been though some tough times and have gained back all but 20 of the lbs. I lost in 8 months with SP. So I'm starting fresh, with several baby steps! I'm keeping my old intro, below, as motivation for myself.

I have a very long way to go, and, after 8 months I STILL feel like I'm just getting started. I had been going to Curves, beginning in August ‘09, and tracking calories, using other tools and message boards on SP. Now that it’s Spring I am walking and hiking so much I don’t have time to get to Curves, but I want to get back there, same goes for Zumba, I started doing that but… And I stopped tracking my nutrition b/c I’ve gotten into photography and spend so much time on the computer doing that that… I’m still trying to eat well, but I ate better when I was tracking! Anyway I’ve lost 69 lbs YAY! (It was a little more but I gained a little back.) I know I still REALLY need to kick it up a notch so I can hike up those hills faster!!!

Member Since: 8/7/2009

SparkPoints: 12,835

Fitness Minutes: 7,152

My Goals:
I want to feel mentally and physically stronger. I want to be able to get out into the world and do the things I used to enjoy. Get outdoors more! I will go hiking this Spring! I will go to the museums, now that I can walk again!

Find a new job!

Loose 100 lbs from between 8/07/09 to 08/07/10. (I'm over halfway there!!!)

Lower my BP and get off BP meds.

My Program:
-Food
Nutritious whole foods, especially more veggies, avoid processed sugar and grains and too much sodium, at least 60 gr of protein per day (I’d been having a hard time w/ that until I starting having a soy milk & whey protein smoothie late night snack many days), eat about 6 small meals/snacks per day, stay between 1200 & 1800 calories a day. Have a great “treat” now and then.

- Exercise
Curves, 3 times a week
Walking
Work out Videos

-Supplements:
- Everyday
1) Probiotics
2) Mega Foods Brand iron free multi-vitamin
3) Ester C
4) Fish Oil
5) Calcium plus D & Magnesium
6) Apple Cider Vinegar
7) Flax Meal in my oatmeal, cold cereal, pankcakes and muffins
-Sometimes
8) Iron 2-3 times a week
9) Vitamin D if I see my nutrition report shows it was low.
- Frequently
10) Whey Protein in smoothies (& sometimes oatmeal, pancakes and muffins)

Personal Information:
I live in DC

Other Information:
I am, mostly, a vegetarian. I will eat some seafood or fish, but rarely. I love eggs and I used to be a cheese monger – so I don’t think I will ever be able to give those up. That makes me a lacto/ovo/pesce-tarian*. I don’t think I will ever be a vegan (although I think that would be good for me and the environment).

* To be even more precise, since I do eat non-vegetarian cheeses (i.e. made w/ natural rennet which comes from, usually, a calves stomach lining), I am a lacto/ovo/pesce/rennet-tarian… sorry PETA

I love vegetarian Indian food! But, I don’t have it as often as I used to because it is often rich and it’s hard to track the calories.
