Emma's Adventures in Weight Loss

I'm Emma, I live in Northern Ireland with my husband and my wee son Isaac (born April 2010) . I work full time as an administrator for a children's charity.

I joined SparkPeople in Nov 2011. My light bulb moment came when I was asked to be bridemaid for my friend at her wedding in June 2012. As vain as it sounds I do not want to be the fat bridesmaid. My weight loss goals are to reach 140 pounds by the wedding and then continue loosing weight until I reach my goal of 130.

My weight loss goals are to reach 140 pounds by the wedding and then continue loosing weight until I reach my goal of 130.

For the first time in my life I am enjoying exercising. In Oct 11 I took up running and I have really caught the bug. In May 2012 I ran in the Belfast Marathon Relay which was great fun. My next running goal is the Waterside Half Marathon which is taking place on the 9th September.

In 2012 I also hope to continue to work out with my trusty Kettlebell.

I hope to meet lots of new people through Spark People and perhaps even make some new friends.

Update: Sept 2012- Tickers reset (153 pounds)
I'm still continuing to try to loose weight and improve me fitness. On the 9th September 2012 i completed my first Half maraon in a time of 2hrs 16 mins and 11 secs.

Although I didn't reach my goal of 140 by June 2012 I'm still ploughing away and I'm still proud of my achievements to date. I now hope to make it to the magic 140 pound mark by my 30th Birthday in January 2013

Just cruising through leaving everyone with some motivational thoughts for today:

“When we feel good about ourselves and embrace our talents and resources, we have taken the first steps toward realizing our full potential” ~ Gillian Stokes

“Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.” George Bernard Shaw

“Have patience with all things, but chiefly have patience with yourself. Do not lose courage in considering your own imperfections but instantly set about remedying them, every day begin the task anew.” ~ Saint Francis de Sales

Cheers, Emma. I don't think you sound like anything but the average person caught up in a life of demands and thank you so much for commenting on my blog this morning. Your comment made my day!
