Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
My name is Kalee, I just turned 27 and i recently got engaged to my high school sweetheart. He and I dated for about 6 years out of high school and split for about 4 years keeping in touch here and there. In April '08 we tried out our relationship again and here we are now, enagaged! So now i have a white dress on my mind.
I was looking at pictures of growing the other day, and it hit me, i have always been chubby. When i was a teenager (my chubbiest), my mom always told me it was "baby fat" and would fall off when i went through puberty. Well that came and went, and here i am many years later still looking at myself in the mirror saying, "wow, you're still chubby". So being 27 years old, i think its time that i take control of me and my habits.
I have been a member of Sparkpeople for a little while now, but i am re-vamping my image and changing things up so i stay motivated and actually make a positive change in my life.
I am also a member of a gym in my town and will make a positive agreement to myself and all of you who read my profile - to go to the gym at least 4x a week.
I need to make adjustments to my eating habits (for the most part i eat healthy), but there are those days that i grab a handful of M&M's and think "this little bit isnt going to affect me" - but then that 1 handful turns into another, and then i think, "well im already being bad, why stop now, and before i know it, im into the cookies or ice cream, etc... " this is what i need to stop. I know that i need to keep some of it into my diet so i do not crave, but i need to do it in moderation.
My goal is to lose 10-15 pounds and keep it off.
"Losing weight never tasted so good!!!"
I have a size 5 jeans in my closet that i would like to fit into by christmas?!?!!!
Today is 11/11/08 and my starting weight is 135lbs.
10% = 13.5 (would be 121.5)
By 11/25/08 - i want to lose a solid 8lbs. = 127lbs.
*Will update goals once the above is reached.
Watching my portions as well as jotting down a weekly menu - easy to follow, and not need to think about it in the morning.
Kalee, I 27 and born and raised in Middletown, NY. I have a wonderful fiance, family and can't forget my 4 furry kitty children.
I love scrapbooking, animals, country music, well music in general, reading (romance novels) and movies...
TV shows that I am hooked on: Greys Anatomy (Thursday Nights) and American Idol (Tues & Wed nights)... love them!!!
| current weight: 136.0
I haven't heard from you in awhile and haven't seen you post on the challenge--is everything okay? Hope all is well!

Sounds like you'll have OODLES of temptation. Try having something healthy and filling before you hit teh streets so you don't feel the need (or space!) to snack your way through the city.
I should head my own advice...I've been "breaking my whole set of dishes" since Thanksgiving! UGH!

August 29 is my big day. You sound JUST like me when it comes to indulgences. I'll have ONE cookie or piece of candy, and think that I blew it, so I may as well enjoy it and start anew tomorrow. There's a quote I really like, "If you break a dish, you don't break the whole set." I think I need to live ny that a little more!
I'm really excited about the holiday challenge, so please do keep me updated on your progress! I can use all the motivation and support I can get! Good luck!
