Where to begin?

I have been on Sparkpeople for years now, occasionally using its tools for good progress, more often ignoring it like the treadmill in the corner piled with clothes.

I have lost and gained weight throughout my late 20s and early 30s. I am mom to wonderful children, but I know that in order to keep up with them I have to eat better and exercise. No more crash dieting for 3 - 4 weeks and then hitting the happy hour hors d'oeuvres until all the weight ...

I have been on Sparkpeople for years now, occasionally using its tools for good progress, more often ignoring it like the treadmill in the corner piled with clothes.

I have lost and gained weight throughout my late 20s and early 30s. I am mom to wonderful children, but I know that in order to keep up with them I have to eat better and exercise. No more crash dieting for 3 - 4 weeks and then hitting the happy hour hors d'oeuvres until all the weight comes back.

I am currently at my highest (non-pregnant) weight. However, I am hoping to change that in 2015.

Short Term goals are:
Eat clean (no processed, extra sugars, extra salts, or white flour)
Drink tons of water
Exercise 4 times per week (start with walking)

Long Term Goals:
Goal weight of 125 (which has been a good weight for me)
Beach vacation in 2016 wearing a bikini
I have a gorgeous snug-fitting dress for the 2015 holiday season - can't wait to wear it and look good!
Change my Sparkpeople picture (this one is from several years ago and a much lower weight than I am now - but I am SUPER camera shy lately!)
Start kickboxing again - it is an amazing workout!
Run a 1/2 Marathon in fall of 2015

Of course I want to be fit and healthy for my kids and my health, but I want to look good too!

Hope this is the time I finally achieve it!!

Thanks for your comment on my blog. The part you probably don't know is that we are just returning from vacation right before we close. Ironically, I am a real estate agent.

Thanks for your comment on my page. emoticon

How about we do our photos tonight? emoticon emoticon

I think I will have my hubby take mine in the entry hall. Then I don't have to fuss with the mirror (showing my messy office) trying to shoot "selfies". emoticon

Just think...If we take the photos now, we are setting the bar...we HAVE to get better from here so we can replace that darn pic!! emoticon

Congrats on your upcoming wedding! I don't even have time to chug water on a busy night. By the time I do, I am so ravenously hungry that all hell breaks lose. Last week I brought a banana and my own little soup and I did good so I will have to try that again.
