Amber's Goals...

Hi! I'm Amber.

I started with Spark at the beginning of February, 2007. I weighed the most I ever did - at least 250 pounds, I think it's safe to say it was closer to 255, but I think I refused to acknowledge that I could be over 250.

I stuck with SparkPeople well for awhile, and dropped down to 215, my college weight. Then I had some tumultuous personal times, and dropped off the wagon. I've tried to re-start a couple times, but didn't get anywhere.

I stuck with SparkPeople well for awhile, and dropped down to 215, my college weight. Then I had some tumultuous personal times, and dropped off the wagon. I've tried to re-start a couple times, but didn't get anywhere.

I'm at a motivated point in my life. I work where I've worked for the last 5.5+ years, where I sit and answer the phone all day. However, I'm back in school and hope to start Pharmacy school in 2013. So, I'm motivated there.

And... I stepped on a scale yesterday. I am up to 268.5 pounds. This does not make for a happy Amber. So, it's time to buckle down. This is my life, my health, and my future. I want to make sure I have a good one.

No more excuses. Just actions to take.

*UPDATE 11/22/2013*

Oh MAN, Pharmacy school is rough on the body! I'm exhausted, I'm stressed, I spend so much time sitting on my butt watching lectures or studying, and I don't have time to cook. AGGGGHHH! I'm going to try to get back to this, baby steps... Gotta keep it in line with my overall goals, and school will always come first.

So... I'm trying to get back into this. We'll see how it goes, but it will likely be in more blog posts/status updates/tracking than joining teams, etc.

My Goals:
CONSISTENCY!
1. Track food
2. Exercise regularly
3. Weigh-in

My Program:
Currently, I'm going with consistency. I only have lost weight previously because I stuck with whatever exercise I was doing, and I stuck with tracking my food.

Personal Information:
I live outside of Orlando, FL, with my boyfriend and my two wonderful kittens, Poppy and Luna. I have a wonderful network of friends who I am as close to as family. I am currently (as of Fall 2013) a first year pharmacy student, which takes almost all of my time.
