Jessc098-Another new start

I'm changing my intro text as practically everything has changed.

Since 2000, I've gone from 98 pounds to 197. I'd really like to get back to 120. My weight gain came from a combination of lifestyle changes and medical complications (Open heart surgery in 2004). Now I'm healthy enough to pursue exercise with a vengence, and I've resolved to model a healthier lifestyle for my kids.

I now have two daughters--both adopted, ages 11 and 4. Our littlest just came home ...
I'm changing my intro text as practically everything has changed.

Since 2000, I've gone from 98 pounds to 197. I'd really like to get back to 120. My weight gain came from a combination of lifestyle changes and medical complications (Open heart surgery in 2004). Now I'm healthy enough to pursue exercise with a vengence, and I've resolved to model a healthier lifestyle for my kids.

I now have two daughters--both adopted, ages 11 and 4. Our littlest just came home from Ethiopia in September 2008.

They are a joy!

We're hoping to adopt again in the near future, but my dear husband has laid down the law. If I'm not healthy enough to have a baby, I'm not healthy enough to adopt either. I must loose 30 pounds before he'll cooperate on another adoption and I must demonstrate a commitment to my health.

Ultimatums aren't like him, but I think he knows that I'll get motivated when I want something bad enough. For myself, for him, four our two kids and the two more I hope to bring home in late 2010, I'm back and back on a mission!

Member Since: 2/11/2008

SparkPoints: 10,869

Fitness Minutes: 27,208

My Goals:
Goal 1: Stick to it!
Goal 2: Wear a swim suit by summer.
(bonus points if I get brave and buy a 2 piece).
Goal 3: Goal weight by my birthday in September.

My Program:
I'm following the "spark diet." With logging food, and exercising when I can. I'm taking ice skating lessons and practicing as frequently as I can. I play on an ametur ice hockey team.

It's tough to squeeze in the exercise with caring for my daughter and our pending adoption as well as working full-time.

Personal Information:
I'm from the Seattle area and I have a small business and I am a freelance writer.

I play ice hockey on an ametur team.

I'm the adoptive mom of two wonderful daughters.

I love Oscar Wilde Storeies, The TV Show 24, any books by Dr. Oz.

Other Information:
My favorite books (inspiration as I try to stick to my program) are the "You" books by Drs. Oz and Rozien. I highly recommend them.

Thanks so much for the goodie. I wish you the best on low carb. It is hard to wrap ones mind around what it is all about, but there are so many that have had such great results and are so much healthier on it. I do it for my heart and also weight loss. My health numbers have never been better. Each check up with my doctor is a great one. So many people are misinformed on Low Carb and do not understand it. I love it. I wish you the best and never forget to have fun, relax and enjoy this journey. Stop by anytime for a chat. God Bless and have a great New Year, Em

That's great. The new business sounds recession proof! I'm in the construction industry, which isn't going well in Ireland at the moment either- so who knows what will happen to my job- but hopefully, if I lose mine, I will be able to act as fast as you. You are an inspiration. emoticon
