Hi! My name is Heather. I am 36, I have been married to my husband John for going on 12 years now and we have a wonderful 6 year old little boy named Gibson. Of course he is the highlight of my life.

I have struggled with my weight since I was in college. It wasn't until 2009 that I took charge of my life. I lost a total of 65 pounds. It was an amazing feeling, the best I had felt in I don't know how long. I was confident and adventurous....two words I had never used to describe myself. SparkPeople was instrumental in my success. I kept my weight off for a year....and then it slowly started creeping back on. How disappointing. I felt like a failure.

Since then I have started and stopped many many times. I never make it past day 4. So this time, I set out with determination to beat this for good. I like to motivate others. It helps me stay motivated. In other words, I'm gonna stick my nose in your business....I hope you don't mind. :)

Lets do this and remember...

WE ALL ROCK!!!

Member Since: 7/24/2009

SparkPoints: 16,747

Fitness Minutes: 19,713

My Goals:
My SMART Long term goal:

Specific = lose weight
Measurable = 72 pounds
Achievable = No more than 2 pounds a week
Realistic = Absolutely, I've done it before
Timely = By February 2015

My short term goals:

-Increase my cardio to 30 minutes per day 5-7 days a week.
-Weigh in on Mondays.
-Be a happier overall person.

My Program:
Cardio = 21 minutes on my bike in 3 minute cycles.

-1st 2 minutes at my normal pace
-3rd minuted at at least 1 - 2 miles an hour faster than my normal pace.
-Do a core movement every 3 minutes. Only doing this up to the 12th minute, would like to do it all the way up through my entire workout.

-Every Sunday I add on 3 more minutes of cardio per day. I am working up to 30 minutes a day. When/if I hit a plateau I will start uping it again.

Personal Information:
I am from good old Indiana. In case you haven't heard, there's more than corn in Indiana. I have a beautiful baby boy who lights up my world. He is the reason I work so hard every single day.

Other Information:
When I wonder about what my life would be like if I was at my goal weight I imagine a strong and courageous woman who isn’t afraid to face the world. She laughs more. She smiles more. She rarely gets sick. She waves to people she doesn’t know. Her state of mind is a complete 180 degrees. She is energized and she feels like she could conquer or comfort the world. Her hair is shiny, her skin is supple. Her eyes glow with the joy of what life holds out to her. She has the power and the desire to reach out with both hands and take all that is precious from her heart and share it with the world. She has the ability to feel passion, to exude passion. Her mind reaches a clarity it has never had in all of its 36 (or 37…anyone know how old I am?) years. She is bold, she is beautiful, she is strong, she is ME!

Thanks for that blog comment! When I read her letter, I realized that would be a good step for me. I don't feel like I have before doing this "journey" and that is fine, but I never want to go through it again. I want this to be the last time I have to lose a lot of weight!

Appreciate you reading my blog today about my crazy childhood. HA! Amazing that we come from two different environments, yet have the same food issues. Just goes to show you it's not just how we were raised, but what we think in our heads. And no, you don't need to hide and pretend every day is perfect. The last time I stopped blogging and logging into SP, I completely gave up and was so afraid to come back to SP because I was so ashamed. This time around, I want to be open and honest through the ups and downs because that's REAL and that's LIFE and that's how people lose weight and achieve their goals! It's a roller coaster, not a straight line. You have accomplished so much and I know you'll get where you want to be soon enough too! Keep being honest and sharing your story and we can help each other along the way. :)

Thanks for the comments. Yeah, fat shaming is a ridiculous thing. I don't really understand it. I mean, I'm sure I've been guilty of it in the past, but now I always wonder how much they are doing, to try to lose. Yeah, it is possible my dad still says those things and now I ignore it, but he has been praising me like crazy about the loss, I know he still feels that way!

Thanks for the blog comments! I'm glad I could enlighten you to the ST issue you had. It was 30 DS shred that awakened it for me. I love that workout. Of course, now I love so many other workouts too. You might REALLY dig Ignite by Spri 900 calorie burn. I'm under no delusions that you burn 900 calories, but there are 4 workouts on the dvd that have ST that makes your heart bong bong. It is FUN!

Hi Blondedog. We have some mutual sparkfriends, and I often see your comments on their blogs. I think you're insightful and fairly hilarious. Hope you don't mind if I friend you.
