After not logging into SparkPeople for 2.5 years, I'm recommitting with the motivation of a couple good friends and trying to develop a system I can stick with for the long haul.

SparkPoints: 9,764

Fitness Minutes: 6,355

My Goals:
Lose .1 pound each day (350 calories) - totally doable!
Exercise 5 days a week for at least 15 minutes to fulfill the requirements for a challenge with a friend.
Run a 5k next year with my friends - the Color Run!


My Program:
Weigh myself each morning. If my weight is below my target weight for that day, I get a "free" day - I can do my minimum 15 min. exercise and watch what I'm eating on my own.
If my weight is above my target, I do some extra exercise minutes and track every bite I eat here on Spark People.

Personal Information:
I am a strong conservative Christian. I love horses, drawing, photography, quilting, scrapbooking. I also enjoy knitting, crocheting, cross-stitch, embroidery, weaving, and all sorts of other crafty things that I never have time for.


Other Information:
I'm an artist - check out my work at www.melissalynnd.etsy.com

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us most. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and famous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that people won't feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in all of us. And when we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.” -Maryanne Williamson (via Travis Alexander's blog)
