Keep the momentum going!

My journey began Aug 06, I lost 25 lbs by Jan 07 and then my life changed drastically, for the good though :-)
I met the love of my life, we built a wonderful life together, had a daughter together and we are happily raising our sons and daughter together.
But as things got busier I let all my Spark habits slip and put back on the 25 lbs plus another 10 for good measure.

But as things got busier I let all my Spark habits slip and put back on the 25 lbs plus another 10 for good measure.
In Sept 12 I was going through some things at work and felt the desire to run away, so I figured I should take up running instead. I LOVE IT! I am still slow and haven't run very far, I've been struggling with shin splints.
But it kicked off the need to be healthy again.
My goal is to get to 150/size 10. When I get there I'll see if a weight of 140 (my previous weight in Jan 07) is realistic.
I'm making healthy changes for me, my husband and our children.

Update 6.26.14: I gave up running :-( I had horrible shin splits and stress fractures, after months of physical therapy, new shoes, compression socks and countless other things I threw my money at I gave it up and decided I needed to try lower impact things and get into better shape before I took on running, I just haven't been able to do any other exercise consistently. I need motivation and help!

Hi! Thanks for checking in! Well, I started my new wellness challenge with my gym this past Sunday, which is great because I have a problem sometimes sticking to eating clean. I still have 3 pounds to go on that bet, too. So far, this week has gone really well, so I'm sure I'll meet that goal! i bet you're kicking butt, too! :)

Can you please tell all of your lost pounds that I have no more room on my @$$ for them and they can kindly find another home to dwell in! If I gain one more pound, I may have a mental breakdown!!! Stupid prednisone!!! emoticon emoticon

I'm so proud of you for how well you are doing..... but I really don't want to meet you halfway on this progress!!!! emoticon

Good job sticking with the exercise! I'm happy to hear that you did it! You are doing so darn good! You've been back on Spark for only FIVE weeks and you've lost FIFTEEN pounds! That is amazing! Keep up the good work and before you know it, the 160's will be history!

Keep it up, I'm rooting for you!

Hey! Thanks for checking in on me! Yep, today is Day 4 of "being good". I'm already down over 3 pounds, but I know it's just water weight being released as I switch from burning glucose to fat. It doesn't matter, though - those water pounds have to come off first, so it's a sign I'm heading in the right direction.

Work was very busy and stressful yesterday, and I could have easily snacked on chips and guac and chocolate and pretzels that are on the counter outside my office, but I didn't. I went and filled up on water instead - thank you :)

This morning, I made myself a kale/spinach/celery/berries/banana/peach smoothie. It was delicious and almost like a dessert!

You've been kicking butt! Keep it up!
