In my second (2011) attempt I have decided to focus more on being healthy by exercising and eating healthy. As you can see from my site I have been an on again off again dieter. I hope to stick to this longer this time.
1st attempt 2008 :I've been working on changing (eliminating) a lot of bad habits and have finally started losing weight in a healthy maintainable way. I recently discovered sparkpeople and decide to join so I can hopefully keep on track for the long haul. I started at 251 lbs Jan 16, 08 and I've lost 17 lbs on my own but it's been lonely and I've done too many diet attempts in the past by my self, not to know that it is too easy to quit when you hit a rough spot, if your not getting outside encouragement from others who are going down the same road. I'm currently at 234.2 lbs (232.4 this morning)and hope to reach 135 by my 45th birthday in Feb next year. On second thought, 145 by 45 does sound better doesn't it. And if I exceed my goal? Oh Well! You won't hear me complaining.

My Goals:
2nd attempt: Try to get as healthy and active as I can with out concerning my self about the weight. Hopefully the weight will come off as I improve my health

My Program:
May 29th I am currently working out 2-3 hours a day 6 days a week. Mainly to prove I can and to see what happens
April 30th: I joined WW's for about 6 months and that helped for awhile until I plateaued and gave up. I went from 249 down to 201 lbs and have regained 29 lbs. So now I have a YMCA membership and am trying to exercise at least 1.5 hours 5 times a week while watching my food intake.

Personal Information:
I live in Idaho, have 2 adult children and a wonderful husband of 28 years.

Other Information:
Inspiring people are food for our spirits. They come in all kinds of disguises and descriptions. If you open your heart to being inspired, they will appear.

Food is fuel, not 'comfort' for when I'm stressed, not 'entertainment' for when I'm bored, and not 'distraction' for when I need a break.

    A couple of things I'm curious about. I live about - oh I don't know - 45 miles from you and as far as I can tell we have NO seashore close to us. In fact, there is a whole other state between us and the ocean, so I'm curious to the name.

    Secondly, where oh where are you pictures? I love to see who I'm chatting with and becoming friends with.

    Also, if you look on my page there are a couple of teams you might be interested in: The Idaho one and the Boise one. I'm not really active on them, I chat once in awhile and have friends from them but I'm extremely busy at home.

    Well, have a wonderful day and I'll catch you later.
