One of the rare pictures I've kept that shows how chunky my face really is.

Full body shot, cleverly masking my big arms and thighs

This isn't the first time I've attempted to become a new and healthier me, but this is the last time it'll be classified as "attempting".

Fitness Minutes: 1,838

My Goals:
Ultimately, my goal is to wear size 14-16 jeans (from size 26). I believe I will likely weigh 190 or so once I get to that point. Who knows?!

Specific Goals:

- 30 minute daily walks by 12/1/09

- Dancing, mini-golfing or batting cages once per week by 12/20/09

- Strength training (Spark Program) 3x week by 11/20/09

My Program:
- Drink at least 64 oz of water and iced tea per day

-Track all of my food and stay within caloric range (right now this is 1500-1700 cals)

-Keep my refrigerator/pantry full of fruits, vegetables, cheese, lean and prepared meats, skim milk, protein powder, frozen fruits, etc.

- Do as much activity daily as I can without becoming discouraged

- Eat mindfully. No binging, mindless snacking, scarfing half a bag of popcorn before I realize I don't like the taste, etc.

Hi Shannon! I finally got online a day late as usual, and found you. Glad I did! Now I can send you encouragement, and you can help prop me up when I lose will power. The only three things which really test that willpower are donuts, ice cream, and bacon. lolol If I can just manage to stay away from those, my diet is very healthy. Hang in there! You'll make it! emoticon emoticon
