I skydived for a friend's 18th birthday years ago, at my skinniest, and would LOVE to do it again! There is a weight limit for safety, and I definitely don't qualify at the moment. I'm working towards meeting the safety guidelines so I can feel the freedom of open air again!

I met my new husband on a rock climbing trip, and would like to get back into it. I want to lose weight so I can get back on the wall and enjoy it. I was a strong climber before he ever touched a wall, but ...

I met my new husband on a rock climbing trip, and would like to get back into it. I want to lose weight so I can get back on the wall and enjoy it. I was a strong climber before he ever touched a wall, but it's a lot harder to lug this body up a mountain. He's now a mountaineering school director, and I'm his sometimes belay slave. I'd like it to be a partnership!

I want to be able to enjoy all aspects of the outdoors. I adore camping, and want to be more comfortable taking advantage of all the outdoors has to offer.

My favorite fitness accomplishment was completing the Sea Gull Century (100 kilometers in one day! ~about 65 miles) in October 2009. I'm hoping to add more accomplishments in the near future.

SparkPoints: 17,815

Fitness Minutes: 33,665

My Goals:
I will use the food and exercise trackers more consistently for motivation and accountability.

I will limit my drinking to ONE drink per weeknight, or 3 when out for the evening.

I will go to the gym or workout outside at least 4 times a week.

I will keep in mind my goal of eliminating the medical problems that have cropped up or returned that are linked to my weight.

I will continue to prepare myself one serving of a meal or snack, and not go back for seconds. (I'm doing well on this one!)

I will continue to avoid buffets, and limit myself to 2 plates if the group I'm with is going (generally one meal plate and one dessert plate). (Yeah! Another goal I've been doing well!)

My Program:
*Eat a good, healthy, filling breakfast and lunch

*Avoid snacking on the sofa

*Exercise: Elliptical, walking with friends, or heading to the gym

*Minimum effort calorie boost: Make my house look nice! Instead of sitting around watching TV or playing online, I've been doing active chores that really REALLY need to get done, and make my house more of a home.

Personal Information:
I teach Spanish and a bit of French at a school district near Pittsburgh, PA. I have been a homeowner since June 2007 and am proud of being able to own at what I consider a fairly young age. My family is my wonderful man, 2 kitties, and a ferret.

Other Information:
"From my house I see the moon. From the moon, could I see my house?"

This reminds me to always remember who and where I've been, and to have empathy forothers.

yeah sorry forgot about that with dropshots. it's autumn

dropped out of weight watchers again...just can't afford it. not sure how much i weigh right now honestly.

school is great! glad it's friday though.

working without a contract???? what does your teacher's union say about that? that's terrible. but of course you know the contract only really protects the school it doesn't protect the teacher. my school only does 1 year contracts so what good does that really do me???? there is always a way out if they really wanted to fire someone- teachers make mistakes weekly.

exciting... i hope you do well in the ride. sounds like hard work. i think that is a good plan though... i need to start walking again so that eventually i can start running again.

go to www.dropshots.com/amberforgey to see the floors
and www.forgeysfunkyfinearts.com to see my work.

school is starting back up in a few weeks..... sad to loose the freedom but excited about all the new things a new year brings. emoticon

hey there! thanks for the comment. I am enjoying my summer...traveling a lot. and i got a new classroom-it's amazing!!! so they are letting the art teachers paint the floors to personalize them. i have been working on that nonstop.

i went back to weight watchers tonight actually. i am the biggest i have ever been- boo! 251.6 very sad. was bouncing around the beach in my bathing suit this past weekend and saw some of the pictures and said "oh snikees" i need to leave denial land. so today is a new day on another very long journey...sigh. why did i have to get brains and talent in exchange for a good metabolism....lol. emoticon
