Fitness Minutes: 16,028

My Goals:
OK, so I saw this idea on a friend's page, and loved it so much, I've adapted it to my own life.

Here are my weight goals:

~ 203 lbs (starting weight, Dec 25/09)

~ 196 (my 35th birthday) - Jan 22/10 - DONE!

~ 185 (not 'obese' anymore & G's 2nd bday) - Aug 31/10 - DONE!

~ 180 (10% of my starting weight) - Sep 23 /10

~ 173 (30 lbs down) - Oct 22/10

~ 170 (pre-baby weight) - Nov 7/10

~ 163 (40 lbs lost) - Dec 8/10

~ 160 (weight I was when I met Blair in '07) - Dec 25/10

~ 153 (50 lbs gone & my 36th bday) - Jan 22/11

~ 149 (love is in the air!) - Feb 14/11

~ 143 (60 lbs - Whoo-hoo!) - Mar 11/11

~ 139 (my bro's bday) - Apr 5/11

~ 133 (70 lbs - WHAT?!) - Apr 28/11

~ 130 (GOAL!!) - May 16/11




My Program:
I have recently started working out at a local MMA gym. No, you definitely will not see me in a cage match against GSP anytime soon! The class I attend is the Fighter Fit class - all of the conditioning, but none of the sparring. My arms and shoulders are like jell-o as I type this, after tonight's workout!

Being in the food business, I'm still trying to get a handle on eating for weightloss. It's really hard! I have to 'quality test' stuff I make... :)

I think I'll just try to stay within my calorie range & make healthier choices (ie: not an entire piece of brownie... just a nibble!). I have a few food sensitivities that I'm working on, too...



Personal Information:
Hi ~

I'm Rachel and I live in Northern Ontario. I gained a whole lotta weight while I was pregnant (ya, my baby's not a newborn anymore), and it's time for it (the poundage, not the baby!) to go.

I'm a super busy mom who operates a busy catering company & who has just opened up a restaurant.

I'm making a resolution right now to make my weight loss journey all about me! I will prioritize!

    Hiya!!!

    Boy, you are busy!!!! Good luck with your restaurant!! Maybe if I ever make it up your way....I'll stop in for a treat of a meal!!!

    I joined a little backwoods gym here in our little podunk town, lol. I go with a girlfriend 3 times a week so it's really fun and we're both losing weight again!!

    Glad you're back on Spark and I wish you all the luck to get closer to your goal!!!!

    Hi Rachel,

    Reading thru some of my old comments on my spark page and thought I'd stop and say hi. How is the weather up there in Thunder Bay?

    My son is attenting Lakehead right now. He loves your city.

    Hope all is well on your healthy lifestyle journey!

    Hi Rachel!! How've you been??? I haven't been on Spark too much lately. I'm at such a standstill right now with the weight that I'm just too frustrated to check in everyday!!!! I keep bouncing between 178-172. I just can't seem to get past it!!!! I've changed up my food, my exercise routine..........EVERYTHING!!! I just can't seem to find the right combination, lol. Whew....didn't realize I needed to vent!! So how are things with you??? Hopefully better than me!! LOL

    Miss Ya!!
