Losing 100 lbs by losing the same 20 over, and over, and over...

I love, love, LOVE to workout. My main problem has always been love, love, loving to eat. I joined SparkPeople with the intention of getting my eating under control. So far, it's been an incredibly helpful tool. I never realized how much I needed support to help me to stay motivated!

I NEED to know others out there struggle just like I do.
I NEED to know others out there succeed despite that.
I NEED to see that those out there who succeed are just like everyone ...

I NEED to see that those out there who succeed are just like everyone else. They aren't super human, just people like you and me who needed a little help and support to get healthy.

So far, SP has been wonderful for that, and I expect to continue on to goal!! My program for now is to eat between 1650-2000 calories a day (as recommended by SP) and to burn off at least 2500 calories a week through exercise (This generally averages out to about 45 minutes a day 5 days a week).

I'm a fitness instructor, so I teach strength training and a plyometrics class. Besides that I do:

INSANITY
P90X
Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred,
Banish Fat, Boost Metabolism
No More Trouble Zones
TurboJam
Yoga videos by Rodney Yee


I also mountain bike, road bike, horseback ride, run, and do pretty much anything possible outdoors. I've been cloistered away inside lately because of rain and cold, but this summer I'll be kickin' it outside again!

Please feel free to message me, leave a comment, or save me as a friend. I love the support here, and conversely I LOVE to support other people! So, please introduce yourself and become a friend!

Member Since: 2/1/2010

SparkPoints: 5,363

Fitness Minutes: 5,772

My Goals:
What I want most is to feel healthy, fit, and beautiful. I also would *really* like to see 150 on the scale again. I haven't seen that number since 10 years ago when I was a sophomore in high school....

My Program:
I began by following the meal plan laid out by SparkPeople. However, I quickly learned what I do and do not like, and now I mostly follow my own laid out plans each day. I buy groceries and have a dicing and cooking day once a week. I also began by reading the Beck Diet Solution to learn how to *motivate* myself and think correctly in order to lose weight and keep it off for good. I struggle with emotional eating when bored, frustrated, or anxious, and this book helped me quite a bit.

Other Information:
I love horses, singing, dancing, biking, kayaking, and all things outdoors. I live in Chattanooga now which affords me ample opportunity to be outside all the time! If you live in Chattanooga too, we should be friends and have outdoor adventures together!

I thought you knew I had a pair. I've had them for about a year. You would LOVE them for kayaking! I have used them just for walking, dancing, etc, but I have learned that I still have to be cautious using them too much b/c of my knees and arches. You should look into them!

Thanks for the comment on my blog. I'm in Canada (near Vancouver BC) and surprise, surprise, I do kayak. We've got vacation property on one of the Gulf Islands between the BC mainland and Vancouver Island, and I really enjoyed getting out on the water last summer. I considered going for some kayak rides again over the winter, but the fact that I've only got a summer-weight shortie wetsuit kind of made me rethink that idea :-) The area around where I live (and over on the island) is rather hilly so while I don't do much true-blue mountain biking, I do seem to get my intervals in when cycling. It's fun, but I'm suspecting that was putting too much stress on my tibia which is one of the reasons it's taking so long to heal. Grrrrr

Hey there my friend!! Thank you so much for the blog comment and the support! I always appreciate it!! I am extremely lucky to have such an amazing husband, and I'm looking forward to feeling better from all the nutritional changes I'm making. I'm excited about all the long term benefits I will see!!
