One Decision at a Time!

Hi my name is Emily and I have been on Spark on and off since summer 2008 when I really didn't even have much weight to lose. I'm glad I found the AMAZING resource though because now I really do have weight to lose! Through college and getting married I have gained 30 pounds. I am tired of feeling crappy about myself. I have a tons of goals that I WILL reach. (12/6/10)

Okay so I've been at this about six weeks now. Some things are easier and some things have gotten harder. I am not having to put so much emotional effort into my diet. Balancing all the nutrients is becoming a lot easier. I am figuring out more and more the right proportions of fat, protein and carbohydrates. Since I have those pretty well figured out I am focusing a lot more on fiber, sodium and cholesterol. Something I have been getting frustrated with is not seeing results on the scale as much as I would like. I have to remember that it doesn't reflect what is actually changing in my body. I have lost a total of about 7 inches throughout my body so far even though I've only lost 6 pounds. (1/19/11)

I completed the triathalon this past Saturday!! I had personal best times in all three areas!
Swim(10 laps)- 12:22
Bike(6 miles)- 24:04
Run(2 miles)-22:19
I realize these are not super competitive times but I am proud that I drastically improved from when i first began training. My ultimate goal is to do this every year and improve in some way each year!

Hey there, all I have been doing this past month to almost 2 months, is cut my portions in half, eat lots of fruit and veggies and water water water!! My exercise isn't too great yet but I am working on it. How are you doing, recently I have been thinking about doing a fitness competition, but I am very intimated by it and don't know what to do!
