Hello everyone! My name is Elysa. I'm 22, I have a 2 year old little girl, and I'm trying to lose baby weight. I've already lost 60 pounds, but my goal is to get back to what I weighed in high school (almost).

UPDATE 01/08/09: I've lost 11 pounds with SP. But, I'm looking to make a new me permanently. I'm setting short term goals, but now my ultimate goal is to fall in love with exercise. I want to get the shakes if I miss a day!! Lol I can't afford to fall of the wagon again, so I'm going to work on gluing my booty to the seat.
UPDATE: 22 DEC 09 I fell off the wagon... lol Anyway, I'm back on. I joined a gym and I've been going. My New Year's resolution will be to track EVERYTHING on SparkPeople like I used to do.

Personal Achievement Rewards:
190: Get My Hair Done (achieved; I have bangs again!!)
180: Mani and Pedi (achieved and then regained) :(
170: Mani and Pedi
165: P90X

Member Since: 10/12/2008

Fitness Minutes: 5,359

My Goals:
I would like to work up to 5 hours of exercise per week.
I would like to get down to 165 by Valentine's Day.
I would like to have more energy to keep up with Ava when she starts walking.

Update: (24Feb2009)
I didn't even come close to meeting my weightloss goal. I am not, however to upset. Well, I am, but what can you do? I've decided to do away with the weightloss end goal date entirely. It' sdone me no good, other than making me disappointed and depressed.
New Goals:
~Drink 8 cups of water per day.
~Stay within my caloric range.
~No more late night "snacking" (That doesn't get tracked!!)!!
~Keep up with my housework schedule.

Update (04March09)
I've changed my goal weight to 150 by next year. That way, I won't have all kinds of pressure to lose. :)

My Program:
None of this is true anymore as of Nov09 :`(

I Strollacize 3 times a week, an hour each time. It is NOT easy. I thought it was going to be, but it is a super workout.
I try to go for a walk to the store or jump on the trampoline at least 3 times a weeks. I would like to walk every day, though.
I'm a Spark Person!! :)

    When we feel the satisfaction of accomplishment we are motivated to take on new challenges. Knowing that the attention and resources we’ve channeled into a certain goal have brought us success gives us the confidence we need to take on more responsibilities. We also have a greater understanding of our own personal strengths, and that knowledge enables us to make good choices about the plans we make, the tasks we take on, and the new goals we wish to set for ourselves. We are ushered along by the momentum of our own success, and greater success naturally manifests as a result. Use today’s accomplishments to fuel you into action by taking on more endeavors, and you will enjoy still greater achievements.

    I just wanted to drop by your page and see how your spark journey was going. I hope you are finding all you need here and wanted to make you aware of a great opportunity to stay motivated and find lots of encouragement as we head into the fall season. The Goonies team has formed a challenge with two other teams for the next 12 weeks. Please come join in our TRI-TEAM CHALLENGE. We will weigh every Tuesday starting September 8th. We will also post our exercise minutes after we have put them in the fitness tracker. We will also have other motivational mini challenges to help you on your adventure such as losing inches and drinking your water. Let us know what you need. We are here for you.
