I'm actually doing this- which means YOU can too!

Weight was never a problem growing up. I never learned how to eat properly and exercise regularly- I was just naturally thin. Then my metabolism stopped pretty much completely and I have gained dramatically. I'm finally at a place where I have to face, and beat, this.

Baby steps right?

Member Since: 1/4/2011

SparkPoints: 7,237

Fitness Minutes: 5,886

My Goals:
- Get below 200lbs (and then more from there!)

- Move more! Find ways to incorporate activity into my life.

- Drink at least 64oz of water per day

- Learn to manage stress and support my own mental well-being

- Learn to love myself in the moment

My Program:
Right now I'm following the outline Spark gives me for my diet. I'm not eating the suggested meal plan- instead I'm using my regular food and adjusting my choices accordingly.

I'm attempting to exercise at least 10 mins per day and strength train 3x weekly. Mostly I use my mountain bike but at times I try to run also.

Other Information:
"Love yourself and honor the life you've been given. Earn it. Treat your body as the sanctuary that it was meant to be. Fill it with all that's good and wholesome. Stay firm in your convictions; be good to others; and make a positive difference in others' lives. Hold onto that which will make you better and discard those things that hurt you. Be happy; fill yourself with laughter; be brave; live your best life; and dare to dream.

And always remember... you can do this."
