Hello to all, I have been on my weight loss journey for quite some time, but it is awesome to be here and see real results. I don't post regularly, but I read all the wonderful material Spark has to offer. I hate being fat and look to my sons for inspiration. I have been focusing on taking the pressure and stress off of losing weight and really enjoying the journey of changing my life. My ultimate goal is to live life free and blessed.
I wish everyone here the best of luck in reaching your goals. Please feel free to offer any advice/strategies and tips that have worked for you.
I want to be a slimmer version of myself and get in good shape. I would eventually like to be around 160-170 and toned.
Also would like to run a 5k (happy to take suggestions on how to start)
Taking it one day at a time. I am tracking my calories, focusing on lowering my intake of calories as well as integrating more fruits and veggies. I've stopped eating take out, fried foods, and sweetened drinks and increased my water intake. I'm very out of shape, so I am working out 30 mins/day 5 days a week. I am working on increasing the intensity of my workouts and adding a 20 minute during my lunch as well.
My friends call me red, goldie or carahmel. I am married and have 2 beautiful sons. I am a research assistant a Medical school and working on starting a business with my husband and brother..
I enjoy taking care of my sons. I am a music lover and enjoy listening to live bands. My favorite artists are Erykah Badu, Jill Scott, Maxwell, and Sade, but I embrace all kinds of different music genres. Some of my favorite movies are Friday, Which way is up, The color purple, the godfather. I love comedies and mobster/drama films and series. I am addicted to the wire, sex and the city, tell me you love me, america's next top model, vh1 realty shows, as well as first 48. (I probably watch too much tv, but I'm working on changing that). I enjoy Football (go Colts and Falcons) as well as basketball (go Hawks). I do enjoy the outdoors and plan on planting a garden in my backyard this year. This year I want to start developing new hobbies( just started taking up photography, next will be bird watching..hopefully). I'm fun loving and laid back. Life is short and I want to live it to the fullest.

Glad to see you are back!
I have been away for a bit I Joined Medifast and its been quite a chore to keep up with both websites. I have to say that spark-people is more supportive as far as the compassion each member shows for one another. The medifast group boards are kinda snooty and sometimes many feel ignored. I am doing my best to try to stick it out there. If Medifast works for me I will pay the 300.00 to become a coach. I Joined because I was afraid of hitting a plateau. How have you been Doing?
Thanks for the recipe rating.
