Hi Everyone!

My name is Jan-Marie. My weight has always been an issue for me. I'm hoping to stay motivated by being actively involved in the Spark community. Knowing that people are willing to support me having never met me before is a really great feeling. Thanks in advance for your support.

My Goals:
My ultimate goal was originally 145, but I've decided 155 is more realistic, achievable, and maintainable for me.

I want to be happy and healthy and feel good about my body and myself.

My Program:
Use the nutrition tracker every day.

Do cardio 3-4 times a week.

Drink at least 8 glasses of water a day.



Personal Information:
I'm a 25 year old recent college grad with a Master's in Educational Research and Evaluation. I'm from Ohio but I am a Bobcat NOT a Buckeye.

I'm currently living in Michigan, east of Ann Arbor.

I'm 5'8" and started my journey at 274.8 pounds.

A healthy weight for me would be from 121-164 but I'm aiming for around 155.

I married J.D., the love of my life, on November 15, 2014.

I think it is terrific that you lost 11 lbs in a month! Congratulations. Don't beat yourself up over donuts. I had 3 Dunkin Donuts this week (2 given to me at work for winning a price) and I still lost 0.4 lbs this week!

Hi. I am fascinated by the whole30 program thinking of buying the book. Do you think, as I live in Australia it could be adapted to my time zone.
