Fresh Start

My name is Beth and I live in Pittsburgh, PA.
I have lost around 220 pounds but am now struggling with extra skin and low self-esteem.
I still have 40 more pounds to lose but I am here working on a fresh start and am going to use SparkPeople to try to lose these last 40 pounds (or at least maintain where I'm at now).


I'm here to gain inspiration from others, and to inspire others.

Member Since: 6/24/2006

SparkPoints: 2,160

Fitness Minutes: 250

My Goals:
-To wear a size 10
-To be able to run a 5k
-To get down to my goal weight so that I can get a tummy tuck to get rid of all of this extra skin
-To love myself no matter where I am on my weight loss journey
-To gain self-confidence

My Program:
The basic goal here was to get healthier, and by increasing my cardio I have gotten my resting pulse rate down to about 60. This is not a crash diet, this is a lifestyle change that will take effect for the rest of my life. I have cut out high-fat foods, and I do not eat fast food hardly at all any more. Once in a while I treat myself, though.

Personal Information:
I live in Pittsburgh, PA. I work in a UPMC hospital on the cardiac unit. I love my job and I am going to nursing school along with working. It's hard but I'll get there someday.

I am a fun person to be around, I love to swim, shop, hike, go to amusement parks, do everything I couldn't do when I was really heavy.

Other Information:
Favorite TV Shows- Biggest Loser, The Soup, The Simpsons, Law and Order (all 3 of them), and Dr. Phil
Favorite Music- I listen to mostly rap, although I do like a good deal of classic rock
Favorite Food- Vegan Ravioli sauteed in Olive Oil
Favorite Exercise- Elliptical, although I love walking/jogging outside in the crisp morning air

Hey thanks for your comment earlier this month, I didn't know I had any new ones! I had a good fourth I guess..hope you did. And my weightloss is lacking..I can't seem to get on track. But I'm going to try harder.
