Never pass up an opportunity for growth.

Through seeing how being overweight has affected my health and my family's health, I've decided to really commit to lose weight. I really want to live a healthier lifestyle and feel better. It's funny- now that I'm more comfortable with my body than I've ever been, I'm actually ready and able to lose weight.

Member Since: 9/2/2007

SparkPoints: 4,722

Fitness Minutes: 5,355

My Goals:
-To fit into my bridesmaid dress for my sister's wedding on the 4th of July (Did it!)

-I might make another small goal after reaching 135, but we'll see how I look and feel then.

My Program:
Tracking my nutrition on SP and staying within recommended calories, eating foods I found I like but don't normally eat- such as certain vegetables and fruits. Also trying a lot of new foods so I don't get bored, which can lead to cravings.

Getting in walks with the dog, Random workouts with friends, Occasional elliptical and American Idol... haha I need to work on my program, as you can see.

Personal Information:
I rejoined this site, because the only time I've had successful weight loss and health improvement was while on SP.
I'm currently a nanny.
I'm 24, and I've slowly but surely kept gaining weight since I can remember. I may not look terribly overweight (even though I'm in the top of the "overweight" category, almost obese), but I can definitely feel a big difference in my health and energy levels. Most of my large family is overweight too. I'd like to reverse the trend. :)

Other Information:
I like walking/ running and playing DDR. I sing, play guitar, and write songs. I love viewing and creating all kinds of art. I really, really like ice cream and dark chocolate. I also love the whole "Biggest Loser" phenomenon.
