Pic shows scans of real women (emphasis on REAL) 5' 6" and 145-150 lbs (my ultimate goal)





Reminder to self: THEY are beautiful; this is my goal, be realistic, don't aim for media portrayals





So once upon a time in the not too distant past, too skinny was also perceived as unattractive?

ONE POUND AT A TIME; ONE DAY AT A TIME

I'm Jess. I'm starting over for what feels like the thousandth time.

Some of the things I've picked up along the way have stuck with me which is awesome, like substituting whole grains, healthy oils, cooking methods, etc. Thanks to these changes I haven't added any additional weight, but I haven't lost any either.

This time around I need to focus on calories in vs. calories expended. I've already cut back my soda intake from about 72-96 oz of Mt. Dew or other ...

Some of the things I've picked up along the way have stuck with me which is awesome, like substituting whole grains, healthy oils, cooking methods, etc. Thanks to these changes I haven't added any additional weight, but I haven't lost any either.

This time around I need to focus on calories in vs. calories expended. I've already cut back my soda intake from about 72-96 oz of Mt. Dew or other sodas per day to 12 oz. and now drink primarily water, but sometimes orange juice or skim milk.

I'm horrible about eating throughout the day, I just forget to do it some days which I know is bad for metabolism and binging later in the day, so I'm trying to sub in some Slim Fast or similar drink shakes.

I don't snack often but when I do it's usually chips and salsa or French Onion Dip, I've already started the switch to healthier snacks--- veggie straws and peanuts.

Overall the primary area I need to work on is fitness, I just don't get enough in, so that is my target area. I don't have a gym membership, so I've purchased 2 different size stability balls, a yoga mat, and some kettle balls. I had some one-on-one with a personal trainer so I'll probably work in some of our old fitness routines and add in some Spark fitness suggestions as well. The stroller and walking shoes are already at the ready and have been in use quite a bit.

I've already lost 6 pounds since mid-July 2015 with just the little changes and I'm ready to really get at it, but know I do better when I'm on Sparkpeople.

Fitness Minutes: 15,240

My Goals:
Being realistic with my goals this time and trying not to micromanage everything!

Setting realistic self image goals, not picking and choosing well known celebrities as my ideal body images. My ideal body images are most definitely the pinup type girls of the 50s and 60s. Thin and fit but still curvy.

My Program:
Still working on that...

Personal Information:
I am married to the most wonderful guy, Mommy to the two most loving (but agitating) boys I know and now a daughter as well!

I am a reading and movie addict and enjoy spending time lounging around (too much). I love taking my kids outdoors to play but hate when it's too hot or too cold and miserable. I loathe most "exercise" activities but need to get off my tuckus!

yeah, I didn't quite make it up this morning either... but I found a place to take yoga for free every Monday night, so I did get 45 minutes in. I am definitely going to make it part of my routine!

That's absolutely FANTASTIC that you made such healthy choices today with how to use your time!!!!! Keep it up!

Definitely a good idea! I'm probably going to try and aim for 3 mornings as well this week. Slowly build up and move things around... haha, don't want to go and kill ourselves over this! It would defeat the purpose! lol... Congrats on losing 2.5 pounds!!

MUAHAHAHA! I got up twice this week for a work out! So far I've only worked out three days and working out a gain today... so I'd say 50% really isn't bad =P Yes, I'm rationalizing, but I'm pretty excited lol

How'd your week of getting up early been going??? I bed you've been doing awesome all week!

Well I didn't manage to make my wake up lol... You definitely put me to shame in the actually getting up and doing it department for sure! lol... I was able to get my work out in tonight and I'm going to try and get up again in the morning... I'll keep setting my alarm for that time till I actually start doing it! lol... maybe I'll bug myself awake! heehee
