8/24/13 half marathon-I'm ecstatic but this is not the greatest photo at 126.6 lbs-I could lose 5lb!
hangin' with my sister (she's the skinny little thing on the left) in Lithia Park, Ashland, OR. 128
I have 7 pics in my gallery
12/4/13: dunno what I weigh, but I'm stoked on embracing the fitness journey. I'm falling back in love with SparkPeople! love the sense of community here. I might have been at my goal weight one year ago, but I certainly didn't feel 'good'. I felt something was missing. Today, I accept myself more as an individual, someone who's got goals and aspirations and is doing her best to stay on the right track! That's all we can do, right? Also, I'm training for a full marathon in April. Here's to long ...

8/26/13: at 126.6 lbs. gained a few lbs prepping for the half marathon. had a PR of 1:34:27, placed 1 of 13 in my age+gender, 2 of 18 in my age group, 3 of 173 in my gender, and 22 of 300 in the race. I feel so strong after this, I can do anything I set my mind to. This includes continuing my commitment to fitness and fixing my diet to go the last mile!
8/1/13: at 123.8 lbs, but not considering weight an indicator of my health. getting back into strength training because I miss my abs, and I want muscle definition!!! also getting back into yoga and juicing. cutting back on the nut butters (it became an issue again a couple months ago), and training for a half marathon. averaging 2400 cals/day... will need to adjust/cut this down after the half.
1/22/13: Above my UGW by 2.6 lbs. I'm doing well in planning meals, and we've solved the nut butter issue: my sister licks a knife and stirs up the jar in front of me when she opens it :) and I'm proud to say I can eat only one serving of oats at a time now! I'm lucky to have fast metabolism, and I'm taking it one day at a time to get over nighttime snacking. Next step is controlling sodium intake during stressful college deadline meeting.
12/22/12: Above my UGW by 4 lbs. Finally admitting to severely disordered eating and ready to get the support I need outside of sparkpeople.
12/1/12: Finally at my goal weight. Now I'm just focusing on maintaining! I'm CHOOSING a healthy lifestyle, not forcing myself to live it! I'm combining running, yoga, intermittent dancing and intense laughter, and roasting lots of squash through the holidays :)
10/25/12: at 123.6. gained 5 lbs and lost 5 lbs over the course of 2 days; it was very stressful! focusing on healthy snacks and portion control. I'm great at working out and love it; I need to get back into strength training, though.
10/23/12: at my lowest in a while: 123.8 lbs. averaging about 2100 calories a day; I'd like this to get down to 1800, then these last 3.8 lbs would melt off! 120 is just right for someone my height (5' 8").
10/5/12: farther away now than I have been in a while. I can't stand school stress. I was at 122 lbs just a week ago; now I'm at 127 at the end of week! This yo-yo needs to stop. I've really got to focus on healthy food.
9/7/12: goal not met, but closer!
As of TODAY, I am going to try my hardest (and SUCCEED!) at not eating either PB or oatmeal because I'm very sensitive to them. I get headaches and severe bloating after bingeing on them, and I can't stand it.
I'm 5 lbs away from my goal! I'm going to try my hardest to get there by 9/7, but if I don't, I'm glad with how far I've come. I'm happier with each pound lost.
Throughout life, I have struggled with a negative self image and disordered eating. Forever dissatisfied with my diet and exercise regime, I've yo-yo'd between being severely underweight and pushing the needle on the scale up into the upper 140's.
This time around, I'm vowing to do it right: focus on portion control, cut out the crap and follow a clean diet for good, get into the meanest, leanest shape of my life, and maintain my social life. I know that changing habits won't be easy, but I'm ready to conquer the challenge to get fit and happy.
