"We are all faced with a series of great opportunities brilliantly disguised as impossible situations. ~ Charles Swindoll

SparkPeople has changed my mindset and my life! I have a story about why I got the weight, but after reading so many "why" stories, is that what is important? I suppose only so far as the story helps you change. The fact is I have it.

SparkPeople has changed my mindset and my life! I have a story about why I got the weight, but after reading so many "why" stories, is that what is important? I suppose only so far as the story helps you change. The fact is I have it.

I'm here to stop carrying the equivalent of a young child. I already have one of those. By standardized weight calculations, I should lose 80 pounds, but my goal is 50 by the end of 2010. People's bodies are different, and I know when I was that 50 pounds lighter in the past, people worried I looked too thin. So I'm fine with that.

I want to be healthier, less self-conscious, and possibly attract more good from the universe into my life path.

SparkPoints: 0

Fitness Minutes: 8,070

My Goals:
To lose 50 pounds by November 2010 and become more fit!

My Program:
1) Walking 14-15 miles a week to start = cardio 4 days/week. Shoot for 1 half-marathon per month (my own routes).

2) Strengthening exercises 3 days/week.

3) Logging food/Nutrition guidelines for vegetarians

Personal Information:
I grew up in the Southwest but have lived in the Pacific NW for 25 years. My job allows me to work from home for hospitals around the country, so that is my form of "arm chair traveling." I've been a single parent for almost 9 years and have not had a vacation in 3. So Spark will be my "vacation" for myself.

Other Information:
My dream job is to work for a cancer nonprofit. I do anything in my power to support further research funding for pediatric cancers. Things I was shocked to learn along the way:
1) 46 people under age 20 are diagnosed each day in the US.
2) Cancer is the #1 disease killer of kids in the US , while breast cancer is the 6th most common cause of death by disease of women in America.
3) The Natl Cancer Institute (NCI) spends only 4% of its budget on all 12 of the pediatric cancers. Breast cancer receives significantly more federal and private funding.
