Update 3/3/11
Since I joined SP what feels like a lifetime ago I have changed pretty significantly. I have learned patience, perseverance, tolerance and humility. I have learned that I am stronger and more powerful than I ever could have imagined and that I can accomplish anything. I have learned that failure only happens if you allow it to happen. ...

Your life is what you make it and being healthy is a choice you make everyday. I choose me.

June 2010
Living and working in Boston and looking to lose weight and get in shape for our wedding, future children and to feel better physically and emotionally.
I started out at 340 ish but I honestly do not even know what the highest number was. I was so miserable. I felt like I could barely move and I decided after leaving a job I was not happy with in early 2009 it was time to focus on myself. I made simple changes like iced coffee with skim milk in place of mocha lattes, and completely cutting soda out of my life, I was able to drop around 40 lb. Over the last 6 months I was able to maintain my weight loss but needed to readjust my eating and exercising habits. With the help of spark I am once again headed on the path of better health!
After just a few short weeks on spark I am happy to say this is a new way of life for me. The support I receive here is an integral part of my weight loss and healthy lifestyle journey.

I can not stress enough the benefits of eating clean. I would say I eat 80-90% unprocessed and it makes staying within my calories so much easier.

Focus on healthy foods such as lean meats, organic vegetables, and whole grains

Cardio Cross Training 6 days x per week
Yoga 1+x per week

I am 36 and 5'10" a born and bred Boston girl and I love my city. I am also a pug fanatic but I love all animals in general as well as the outdoors.

Cooking and teaching people about food is my passion.

My first goal is water too. So far I have done well with eliminating soda and only drinking water and an occasional iced tea or juice. Soda is one of my biggest addictions so it is a great first step to break that habit again. I think after I do this for a couple of weeks then I will add switching my snacking habits from sugary foods to more wholesome options.

Thanks for the love and support!

Hi Ashley
Glad you are back. You and I started on SP About the same time. Thank you for sharing your ups and downs. It's a wild roller coaster and I really do not think we will ever get off. I'm experiencing gain again and can not seem to get a grip on it. It feels so out of control and powerless. I do not know how to turn that switch on again.
