The secret? DON'T GIVE UP.

Hey there! My name is Jen, and I'm a 33 year-old mom and wife. I'm on a mission to lose 50 pounds.

The last time I looked and felt truly great was in college (2000-2004). I was about 110 lbs and fit into a size 0/2. My goal is to get back to that weight and happiness again.

Hey there! My name is Jen, and I'm a 33 year-old mom and wife. I'm on a mission to lose 50 pounds.

The last time I looked and felt truly great was in college (2000-2004). I was about 110 lbs and fit into a size 0/2. My goal is to get back to that weight and happiness again. Every year since I graduated, my weight has consistently gone up. When I begin a weight loss plan and have success, I always seem to eventually give up, overeat, and gain the weight back - plus more. I also had a baby in 2012, and while I initially lost most of the weight I gained during pregnancy, I've gained so much more in the past year becoming a stay-at-home mom. I'm at my highest weight ever right now.

Spark People is truly the tool I need to stay on track. I love connecting with others on their weight-loss journeys, especially those who are also moms or struggling with a similar weight loss goal. Please reach out to me if you'd like to connect! :)

My Goals:
My ultimate goal is to achieve a healthy weight of 115 lbs. (I'm only 5'0" tall!) I want to make eating healthy and fitness a part of my everyday lifestyle. I want to feel confident again and look and feel my very best.

MINI HEALTH GOALS FOR 2015:

( ) Go at least one month without a sugar binge
( ) Receive a compliment about my weight loss from someone
( ) Run a 5K race
( ) Achieve "overweight" BMI range (29.9 or below)
( ) Run a 10K race
( ) Finally feel as though I am no longer addicted to sugar
( ) Achieve "healthy" BMI range (24.9 or below)

MINI WEIGHT GOALS:
( ) 164
( ) 159
( ) 155
( ) 153 = achieve "overweight" BMI goal
( ) 149
( ) 144
( ) 142 = halfway to goal!
( ) 139
( ) 134
( ) 128 = achieve "healthy BMI goal
( ) 124
( ) 119
( ) 115 = GOAL! :)

My Program:
Right now, my plan is to:

1) Track ALL calories consumed (I'm currently using the SP app) and aim to stay within 1,500 calories/day
2) Exercise at least 3 times/week, including running and working out at home or the gym
3) Drink at least 9 cups of water throughout the day
4) Log into SP daily
5) Read something motivating each day

Personal Information:
I'm a stay-at-home mom and love taking care of my 2 year-old son. I love to organize and am always trying something new that I saw on Pinterest. I really enjoy running outside (except in the cold) and I'm an Ohio State Buckeyes fan. I earned my BA in Organizational Communication from Wright State University in 2004, where I met my awesome husband.

Other Information:
These quotes motivate me so much:

God is within her, she will not fail. -Psalms 46:5

Failure is only the opportunity to begin again - only this time more wisely. �Henry Ford

Your dreams are as hungry as your demons. Make sure you are feeding the right ones. -unknown
