My Goals:
Start Weight: 229
End Goal: Low 140's

The lowest weight I have reached on my journey was 140 lbs. in June 2011 and again November 2013. I am working to get back to that and maintain between 140 - 150 lbs! I just can't seem to get it and keep it.

To get my heart, soul, and mind working together to stay healthy no matter what obsticles are put in my path!

To put myself first in my choices and remember that I am the only one who can truly take care of me!

My Program:
I have learned that I need to track my food and follow my SP food range and using the food pyramid.

I include mostly all whole grain, natural, low fat and fresh products. I try not to eat many processed foods and have learned how to make better choices when dining out.

I fit in exercise when I can because I burn out if I make it a job to exercise. I have learned to make it more fun and fit it in as much as I can.

I play with my kids, jump rope, swim, bike, run, use on demand exercise TV and SparkPeople videos.

I am not so good with strength training but do own a Total Gym,, resistance bands, and enjoy the exercises on SparkPeople.

Personal Information:
I have a wonderful sister who is a fitness instructor at our local YMCA. She gives me lots of support and advise which I take to heart! I would not be where I am today without her.

I am married, have 3 wonderful children and live in Central New York.
