A little less Amy

I came to SparkPeople on August 20, 2012 weighing 253 lbs. For nine months, I was very devoted to tracking and exercising and lost roughly 50 lbs before I turned 40 last July. Since my birthday, I have been struggling and regained some weight.

February 2014: I have decided to take a break from counting calories and watching the scale. Instead I am setting fitness goals and making healthy choices without obsessing about the numbers.

My Goals:
2014 Goals:
February : Climb 300 flights of stairs.

My Program:
I gave up most sugar and flour in August 2012. I started jogging and doing yoga soon after.

In January 2013, I started at Week 5 of Couch to 5k (before that I was doing my own interval running program).

At the end of January I finished C25K.

Personal Information:
I am from Alabama, have three daughters and work full time.

I came to sparkpeople because I am pre-diabetic and want to get healthier and reduce my blood sugar. For now, I have cut all bread, pasta, and sugar from my diet.

I struggle with cooking at home for myself, my husband and three picky kids.

Hi Amy,

How are you Gorgeous? You look great.

I'm going vegetarian for now. I am eating vegetables, less carbs and not relying on fruit for healthy eating. I have tried a couple of times to go vegan but just ate carbs and fats. Moron.

Now, I am really concerned about my footprint as well as my health. I want to make good choices for the planet and the next generation. Every small contribution helps.

Made pumpkin soup tonight. Hopeful! emoticon

"Sometimes victory seems so far away because we measure it only by the goal. And end goals can seem overwhelmingly huge, daunting, and just plain hard to reach. But if we start measuring our victories by the smaller choices we make each day, victory won't seem so impossible.....
It's amazing the chain reaction that can start in your life with just one good choice.
Big things are built one brick at a time.
Victories are achieved one choice at a time.
A life well lived is chosen one day at a time.
Oh sweet friend, you are closer than you think to victory!"

Be your own hero, one choice and one step at a time! You might not see visible signs of progress right away, but as long as you keep doing your best, you will make progress and you will be victorious! I'm rooting for you! Remember, you're worth your best effort!
Hugs,
Pixie

Hi Amy,
Just wanted to say happy Friday! Hope all is well with you. I know you did a Disney cruise this past spring. My family is going on the Disney Carribean cruise in November. Any tips for me?
