In the space where I can breathe...

I'm Melissa and came to the realization that I was simply too fat and was living a lifestyle that didn't reflect the real me. The fact that I started my journey on a whim with a group of friends is a miracle. I constantly remind myself that all my previous failed weight-loss attempts have led me to where I am today.

The Sparkpeople community is a fantastic place and I'm so glad I found a home here. I hope anyone else reading this page finds the same sense of belonging that I do.

My Program:
Sparkpeople! I am able to truthfully track my daily calories and my exercise...which was something I never did before.

In addition to the tools here at Spark, I use an elliptical machine for 60 minutes, 4 days a week. My strength training program consists of two days of weight training at the gym, followed by 30 minute cardio sessions.

To make sure I'm getting my calorie deficit, I use the BodyBugg arm band. I love that I know for sure how many calories I'm burning because my body has changed so much. The things I did before weren't really working anymore, so while I have to fight longer to burn the same calorie that I burned three years ago, it's refreshing to know it's gone!

Personal Information:
Iím 34 years old, single and now live in Cleveland.

I was looking around on Sparkpeople and noticed you're still here!!! How are you??? Things are going great for me. About 2 years ago I started running and running has changed my life. I am down to 125 lbs (for about a year) and trying really hard not to lose anymore weight. So how is your journey? I would love to hear from you!!! Audrea

With "Fumbling" and "In a Space Where I can breathe" I am sure you are a Sarah McLaughlan Fan!!! Me too... I even work out to some of her faster tunes, and stretch to some of her slower ones. Great job on your journey!!!
