My name is Becky and I live in Germany. I try to live each day, remembering that change is good! I'm going to reach my weight loss goals, and be practicing a healthier lifestyle, by my 25th birthday!

For me, using SparkPeople is about making-over my life. I know I'm going to lose weight and get healthier as a result, and that's awesome, but I don't want to allow myself to become obsessed with the weight loss portion. I want to be HEALTHY.

After almost two months here, I feel like a different person!!

10 pounds down- May 9, 2008!!

I'm getting close to 15 pounds, yay!
I spent the month of June on a trip to visit family and friends in the states, and while I tried to stay somewhat active and to eat fairly well, I didn't make a lot of progress. Thankfully, I managed to maintain my weight, and since arriving home I've lost another pound. I'm ready to get back into this and to keep pushing toward my goals!

**UPDATE: 7.8.08 I AM LESS THAN 240 POUNDS!**

Fitness Minutes: 3,108

My Goals:
My overall goal is to completely change my lifestyle approach around food and fitness. I want to have made this change by the time I turn 25 next year. I am making these changes for myself, for my husband and family, and so that I will be a good role model when I have children.


My Program:
Right now I am focusing on calorie counting and making healthier meal plans, as well as cutting back on snacking and large portions. I am slowly adding cardio and strength training. And I'm on a long-term racing plan with a friend, so that I can run a 5K by this time next year!

3/15/08- St. Patrick's Day 5K, 55:42

4/5/08- April Showers 5K, 60:24

4/25/08- Sexual Assault Awareness 5K, 41:00 !!!!



Personal Information:
I am originally from Pennsylvania, but I have lived many different places. I love to travel, and city life is the life for me! I studied psychology and voice in college. I'm trying to figure out exactly what I want to do with my life. Right now, I know I want to live longer and have a healthy lifestyle- so I'm focusing energy on these goals!

    I'm so glad your puppy is with you in germany! I totally know how you feel--my kitty is totally my baby. He's doing great. He's great company for me, and when he wants to play he gets me running around the house! :)

    Things are good--my bad is recuperating and I am able to move around really well. Almost back to how I was before I got hurt! I have a weigh in this week--I've plateaued, and I really hope that I lose something!

    I'm so proud of you for being in the 230's! you are ROCKING!
