CLAYRATHKE's SparkPage

It's my 2-year anniversary with SparkPeople and time to update the SparkPage.

Twice within the last year I got within 1 pound of goal weight, but then life got in the way and I slacked off. I'm in danger of getting all the way back to my starting weight, which is disheartening.

I decided to try a Biggest Loser challenge to shake things up. So far, not much weight loss, but I am definitely improving my daily exercise level. Hopefully the weight will come back off soon. ...

From March 30, 2014:
Decided to create my Spark Page to celebrate my 1 year anniversary with SparkPeople.

I'm a 50 year old mom, currently living in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. I've lived here for nearly 18 years and I love it.

I was thin for my entire life until after the birth of my son 16 years ago. I became a stay at home mom and put on one to two pounds per year until I reached 160. That's when I decided that it had to stop.

After one year with SparkPeople, I'm within 4 pounds of my goal weight of 142. It was much harder to keep the pounds off than I ever imagined! I seem to lose three pounds and then plateau for weeks before making a little progress again.

I've started exercising every day for at least 30 minutes, and that seems to be helping break the latest plateau.

Christina,
"So, here's to us.
Here's to ordering a salad when we want a burger.
To making an ass out of ourselves in cardio hip-hop class.
To drinking more water than seems humanly possible.
To going 5 more minutes on the elliptical.
To working twice as much as your skinny roommate.
To saying "screw you" to the old you.
To following in love with the you who you really are,
the you that you want to become.
To looking in the mirror and not seeing any change,
throwing on your running shoes, and working out anyway.
To looking in the mirror and seeing major change.
Here's to carrots, shin splints, and sweaty t-shirts,
and perseverance, and all things fat-free,
and sore muscles, and stinky socks, and 7 a.m.,
and spin classes, and falling down,
and getting back up, and bottled water.
Here's to us for getting up everyday
and doing it all over again.
Here's to us."

Food is the most widely abused anti-anxiety drug in America,
and
Exercise is the most potent yet underutilized anti-depressant.

Fitness is like marriage
You can't cheat on it, and expect it to work.
