Looking forward to Less of Me!

I need some positive people in my life, so if I randomly friend you it's because I found you to be motivating and positive or an inspiration to me!

I've been fat my whole life and never cared, but I have a baby boy now and it is important to me to be there for him as long as I possibly can, so my ultimate goal is to lose weight for health, and get fit so that I can be active right along with his busy little butt and keep up!

SparkPoints: 5,363

Fitness Minutes: 22,389

My Goals:
Goal #1: Hit 199.
--I want to see a # on the scale that starts with a 1, I can't remember ever seeing that!

Goal #2: Be able keep up with my baby without getting out of breath

Goal #3: Be a RUNNER!

Goal #4: Shop in the regular size section and wear clothes that I like!

My Program:
-Currently on Atkins Induction Phase--eating lots of protein, veggies and cheese. Limiting carbs.

-Drinking 65+ oz. water a day

-Walking for at least 30 mins a day, 5X a week if not more!

Personal Information:
I'm from St.Louis, MO, born and raised and still here! Just had my first baby in August 2011. I'm a single mom by choice and so much happier this way! I'm 5'6 and my highest weight was 296 (when I was 9 mos pregnant). I'm an admin at Express 2000.

Other Information:
I love to read and write, I had dreams of someday being a writer but somehow that has gone to the back-back burner.

My favorite author is Toni Morrison. I love the classics and have made it my goal to create a small library collection of them.
Also love Mitch Albom's books. I did enjoy Twilight and The Hunger Games.

I love music, it is the only way I would ever be able to exercise! Lady GaGa and Rihanna are my favorite to workout to. I'm not really into rap except I do enjoy some of Lil Wayne's songs...he's ugly but his lyrics can be entertaining!

I've found a new addiction--Podcasts! Actually, just one. The Cut the Fat podcast with Ray Hinnish and Blythe Alberg. I listen to it on my 30 min walk I take at lunch. The time flies and I am learning so much. I look forward to it everyday!

Thank you for the Goodie! I'm so glad you went out for that walk; your baby must have loved it! Speaking of that, 30 minutes of exercise with a child is an accomplishment! I'm glad I was able to help!
My "baby" is 17 now (18 next month!) and he is the one who will check up on me, asking if I got my exercise in for the day. Even if it's 11pm, he'll insist I get on the treadmill, often parking himself on the couch (it's near the treadmill), watching TV, keeping me company until I'm finished. He is relentless and I'm going to be heartbroken (but not gain weight, I promised) when he goes off to college in the fall. emoticon emoticon
