I know this was a bad idea, but they were so darn cute!

Probably as close as I'll ever get to Jr.!

Member Since: 1/31/2012

Fitness Minutes: 16,006

My Goals:
• decrease weight
• increase activity level
• increase energy level
• improve my teaching
(I love my job and working with teens, but I'm not performing well. So, my motivation stems from a strong desire to improve my performance at work and positively influence my students!)

My Program:
I'm starting simply. I'll begin by tracking my calories and increasing my exercise minutes gradually.

I've already identified a serious trouble spot: drinking! The only days I've exceeded my caloric intake goals terribly were when alcohol was involved.

I met my first major goal today (9/8/12) of losing 50 pounds, only a couple of months past the goal date. I've learned bunches during the process, and look forward to more life lessons as this journey toward a healthier me continues. I've upped the ante, and doubled the number to 100 pounds more as my next goal. According to my BMI, that will make me merely overweight and not obese.

Personal Information:
I live in beautiful North Idaho. I enjoy camping, fishing, dancing, and playing cards with friends.

Other Information:
1. 20 pounds!
Reward: resistance bands
2. 35 pounds!
Reward: Nikes
3. 50 pounds!
Reward: first professional massage
