My journey from fat to fit.

I got rid of 50, now I'm working on the last bit. I updated my tracker to reflect the new, smaller goal. I know I can maintain because I've been maintaining the 50 pound loss, but I want to see an 80 pound loss in the end. At that point I'll decide if I want to see a skinnier me or if I'm fine with what I looked like when I graduated high school 20 years ago.

I got rid of 50, now I'm working on the last bit. I updated my tracker to reflect the new, smaller goal. I know I can maintain because I've been maintaining the 50 pound loss, but I want to see an 80 pound loss in the end. At that point I'll decide if I want to see a skinnier me or if I'm fine with what I looked like when I graduated high school 20 years ago.

I've had excuses before, I even had legitimate ones. I got rid of the clutter in the house, the medical issues in the family, the credit card debt and the toxic apartment. I no longer have excuses.

I control my vitamin D deficiency with supplements. I have a beautiful park with walking trails in the backyard, I have some active video games. I have 2 elementary schooled kids I need to be healthy for.

I may live in an apartment, but it has a south facing balcony, I am growing a garden in pots again this year. I love fresh vegetables whenever I can get them, especially right off the plant. My garden consists of container sized vegetables and herbs. I started a bigger garden at my Mother's house since she has a backyard that can support bigger plants like melons and squashes.

I won't let excuses rule my life, every excuse can be overcome. An excuse is just a challenge to figure out how to do something different.

My Goals:
My ultimate goal is to be able to buy a bra off the rack at Target again.

I'll take a new picture of myself once every 5 pounds to see my progress.

Making exercise part of my normal routine whenever I can fit it in, which is more often that you'd think.

No mindless snacking, especially at night when it's time to relax.

My Program:
I've been watching my food intake with SparkPeople and getting some exercise. I walk in the park whenever I have time which happens more often during the school year. I'm working on 10,000 steps a day.

Basically it's less junk food and more movement.

Personal Information:
I'm a Minnesota mom of 2 elementary school aged kids with a helpful husband that hides his junk food if it comes home.
