The Long Road Home

Hi, I am Sandra. When I became , depressed and on medication for depression I gained almost 100lbs over a couple of years. My weight impacts almost every aspect of my recovery from depression as well as my health. This program, this... is the most important thing I have ever done for myself. I once had my life threatened at gunpoint. I survived. Now with food and my weight I am putting a gun to my own head. I refuse to do that to myself any longer. I refuse to break my own heart anymore.

Fitness Minutes: 685

My Goals:
My goal is to lose 30lbs by January. I need to lose way more than that but I wanted to set myself up an attainable milestone. In the process I want to learn to eat better and become accustomed to getting more physical activity.

Looks used to dominate my reason to lose weight but now, as I am having a harder and harder time carrying my weight and am hurting all the time - it is health that is truly driving me to change.

My Program:
I am following the spark calorie and exercise counters to control my caloric intake, etc. I am eating a balanced low carb, low sugar diet and working to increase my veggies. I have removed all bread and carby carbs from my diet right now.

Personal Information:
I am an artist and a poet living in the beautiful Santa Cruz, CA - where the redwoods meet the sea. I am an executive admin at a local School of Art. I have been writing and doing artwork for over twenty years but you never quit learning. I am studying my art using a very old classical approach under the direct instruction of an artist.
