I have been overweight ALL of my life. Although, I am overweight, I have also exercised all of my life and am fit and feel good. As I age (47), I'm feeling that I really need to focus on getting healthy. I want to be around to see my daughter grow up and I want to be able to activities with her and my husband. Food and eating is a big part of the weight loss equation and this is where I have the most difficulty. I have been doing Sparkpeople now for about 9 months off and on and have found that their processes and systems for recording food is the key to my success! I am so looking forward to really starting on the road to health and fitness.....eventhough I feel as though I have been on that road all my life. I am about to see success...I can feel it:)

My Goals:
Today 8/23 is nearly one year since I have gotten super serious with this weight loss thing . I say serious, because I have tried all my life to lose weight all without a plan. And all without success. For the past year I have been active on Sparkepeople tracking and interacting. I and also increased my exercise amount and intensity.

So after a year, while I have not gotten to my original weight loss goal of losing 100 pounds, I have made a lot of progress. I have lost 25 pounds, I have lost several clothes sizes, I feel great. I have gotten so strong from weight lifting and my blood work has improved. I have gained so much knowledge about healthy foods, weight loss strategies, exercise techniques and more from Sparkpeople. The list could go on and on!

So today I have re-evaluated my weight loss goals and am ready to begin losing weight again.


Today my weight was 280 pounds. By the end of November, I will have lost 30 pounds

My Program:
I work out at least 6 day a week.

Monday - one intense hour with a personal trainer doing intervals with weights and cardio.

Tuesday -- Strength class at gym for 45 minutes and at least 30 minutes of cardio before/after.

Wednesday -- 1hour of Strike class

Thursday -- 1hour with a trainer doing weights and cardio

Friday -- 1hour Zumba class

Saturday / Sunday -- one day will be off and I will work out the other day.

One step.
One minute.
One mile.
One workout.
One choice.
One bite.
One meal.
One hour.
One day.
One week.
One pound.
