Running is life...

I've taken small, baby steps during the year of 2012 and started to really get serious about losing weight on October 4, 2012. I'm wanting to weigh as close to 170lbs on October 4, 2013 as possible. So far in just over a month I've lost a grand total of 12lbs. I'm already feeling much more energy and feeling great!

Fitness Minutes: 1,677

My Goals:
My ultimate goal is to get back into running. I want to be able to run in 5 and 10k's in the future. Also want to be back within Healthy BMI range weight.

My Program:
Watching what I eat, not drinking sodas, exercising 5 times a week, and making sure I'm more active during the day.

Personal Information:
I live in Riverview Florida which is about 10 minutes East of Downtown Tampa. I LOVE to play MMORPG. But I've greatly cut back in my play time since I'm trying to be more active. I'm a huge computer geek and I'm going back to school to get my degree in Computer I.T.

I have two lazy german shepherds, and a couple of cats that I've adopted from my parents when they moved to the Bahamas.

Welcome! We are in very similar boats- I started again shortly after I turned 27... how did this happen? How did I let myself get into such horrible shape? I used to run track, play tennis and volleyball and dance and now... yeah, none of that's happening!

But you have definitely come to the right place to get going! The most important thing I can tell you is to follow the program- I scoffed at small changes at first, and went all gung-ho, which worked great for the 6-12 weeks I would stick to it (and lose 20-30 lb), but then I would revert to old habits and the workouts would lessen and it would all come right back. So please stick with the small changes to get going! It makes them so much more sustainable in the long run!

Sounds like you have healthy goals- I think it's great that you'll be measuring yourself. On the weigh-in page there are options to add measurements- you can choose from a set of pre-set ones and/or add your own as well!

The program is great- the nutrition & fitness trackers will become your best friend. I would suggest tracking your current intake for a week or two so you can see your eating habits and proportion of carbs/fat/protein. That way you'll know what changes to start off with!

I would also recommend joining some spark teams- they can be a great resource for support and motivation!

You can totally do this :) I wish you the best of luck! Feel free to sparkmail me anytime!
