Greetings! My name is Miranda, I am 28 and I live in Cleveland, Ohio. I've been a member of sparkpeople since early 2008. I've kind of been an on and off member, going away and coming back. It has taken me two years to lose and keep off 50 pounds of weight. I believe that my persistence is what is going to help me reach my goal weight. One of these days, I am going to beat this thing!

A little about my life:

I'm a runner, (hence the Brooks Adrenaline GTS 7's on my background!) and have run 5 half marathons in my life and one Marathon (Chicago on 10/10/10!) I am training to run another half marathon this spring and I hope to run another marathon this fall. I also love Zumba and go to a class twice a week. I've been married for 2 years to my Aussie husband and the man of my dreams! He is seriously, amazing and I cannot wait to see where life brings us. And, I love to travel! I met my hubby in Europe in 2007 when I was backpacking.

A little about my struggle:

Losing weight is literally the HARDEST thing I have ever had to do in my LIFE. I've been overweight for as long as I can remember. I've been struggling to lose it for as long as I can remember, and over the years, have come to have really negative, unhealthy feelings towards losing weight (making it define me, obsessing, etc.). I want to lose weight for the right reasons, and I want to do it in a way that is patient and healthy. I find that too many overweight people expect that when they "arrive" at their weight-loss goal, they will do this or that- and that only THEN, will their life truly begin. Only THEN will they take chances and get out there and achieve their other goals. I've come to believe that NOW is my life, and I don't plan on wasting it. It is about the journey of weight loss, not the destination. I will lose weight and I will meet my goal eventually, but I'm LIVING in the meantime! And I invite you to come alongside me as that happens. :)

Weight-loss goals:
140 or until I'm happy in my healthy range, which is somewhere between 125 and 160! I chose 140 because it's right in the middle, but maybe I'll be happy at 150?

I run and do zumba and I am currently doing weight watchers- I love it so far!

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