I Know I Can Succeed!

Hey all, I'm Judy, I live in Jerusalem, Israel. I'm 26 and taking control of my health in the "prime" of my life. Each day is a gift. Let's make the most of it!

Update May 16, 2011:

I'm coming to terms with the fact that after years, this is not just a temporary "fat" phase after being very skinny in h.s. and college. I'm taking control of the disordered eating that has plagued me for years.

I readjusted my goal weight from 130 to 135. I think that it ...

I'm coming to terms with the fact that after years, this is not just a temporary "fat" phase after being very skinny in h.s. and college. I'm taking control of the disordered eating that has plagued me for years.

I readjusted my goal weight from 130 to 135. I think that it is more realistic and sustainable, but in more than a year on SparkPeople I haven't gotten any closer to this goal :(

I walk to work about 25 min each way and sometimes I bike commute when I have a meeting out of the office. I do almost all my errands on foot.

I am working on eating cleanly and avoiding packaged goods and foods with additives.

I say "I know I can succeed" because I do anything I set my mind to do, and somehow I just haven't totally committed to this healthy lifestyle thing, for all sorts of reasons I have greater clarity on each and every day. This all has been not just physical work, but a lot of emotional and psychological work on self-acceptance and self-confidence.

Many friends think I am super healthy because I exercise in a formal way and eat healthy, but they don't know that I have in the past turned to food to stuff away emotions and binge eat, or exercise in order to burn off calories from a binge. In other words, I'm not so healthy overall.

I've been on Spark for more than a year and my weight has just flittered up and down. It's hard to stick with a plan that's tough enough to work but not so tough that I fall off the saddle after a week!

Fitness Minutes: 27,876

My Goals:
I would like to reach my goal weight of 135 lbs. I have never been there long - either under (anorexic) or over (from binge eating). A more important goal is to end these forms of disordered eating and self-destruction!

I want to go back to feeling good and full of energy and for my clothes to fit better.

I would like to run the next Jerusalem half marathon.

*20 regular pushups!*

My Program:
I am trying to stick to about 1800-2000 cal / day.


I walk at least 10,000 steps a day 6 days/wk

Personal Information:
I'm a newly wed. I was unable to lose weight before the wedding, but at least I didn't gain from stress. My weight seems to stubbornly creep up a tiny bit each year, no matter what happens. This frustrates me.

I find it most productive to focus instead on goals like running farther or faster, or doing more pushups.

Other Information:
I welcome feedback on my nutrition / fitness tracker. I find it difficult to log both each and every day, but I do my best to log at least my fitness.

"Beautiful Woman Award! Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the wall of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out"
