My name is Erica and since having my two children I had gained more weight than I'd like. Obesity, heart disease and cancer are all hereditary factors that motivate me. My heaviest was 154lbs and I lost weight over the course of a few months by not eating fast food. I was not tracking my weight until January 08 when I joined SparkPeople at 145 lbs!

It's been several years since I started my Spark journey and I gained back all of the weight I lost. I know this is due to a negative view of myself and choosing not to believe I am capable or worthy of attaining my goals. I am tired of not believing in myself and sabotaging my goals and happiness.

Member Since: 1/16/2008

Fitness Minutes: 21,616

My Goals:
To get myself on the treadmill three days a week - once I get there I can do it, getting there is my problem!

To do something every day. Whether its just pushups and jumping jacks or a full workout, doing something EVERY day so that fitness is always on my mind!

To feel sexy around my husband, I miss feeling confident around him! I know he doesn't even mind but I do!

To be a great example for my children, exercising and eating healthy!

To be financially savvy and teach my children how!

To graduate college and be proud of myself and my accomplishments!

My Program:
150: New running shoes
145: New workout outfit
140: GOAL! New expensive jeans!

I currently take Latuda to treat my bi-polar disorder.

Personal Information:
I'm a wife and mother, nothing could make me happier!

I deal with bi-polar disorder, which some people mistake for unhappiness with my life, its a chemical imbalance, not something I choose, but I do choose to be proactive about it!

Other Information:
I love to cook and love getting new recipes for healthier meals!

    Welcome to the Ostomy team! It was a blow when I got such bad UC that they took out my whole colon. My story is on my spark page! I'm doing great with exercise now...did 2 spin classes back to back today. Had one lady at my Weight Watcher's meeting thought my grand baby was my baby. Yeah she needs glasses because 61 doesn't look like a baby age??? You are doing great. I have had a minor set back with new stress watching a baby for a year that is now 15 months old. I can't get everything done and meal planning is out the window? Reading stories like yours helps!

    Thanks for commenting on my page. Insanity will definitely help you get stronger if you push yourself. All those squats and pushups...ouch!
    Keep up the great work!
