Striving to live a healthy, happy life

My name is Kira, and I currently live in Nashville, TN. I am a graduate student and a candidate for ordination in the Episcopal Church.

I initially joined SP to lose weight for my wedding on June 7, 2008 and got down to my goal weight of 120. But after the wedding, a combination of getting "fat and happy" and the stresses of grad school, working, and being a wife took their toll. I'm now back up to where I was before and am not happy about it.

My name is Kira, and I currently live in Nashville, TN. I am a graduate student and a candidate for ordination in the Episcopal Church.

I initially joined SP to lose weight for my wedding on June 7, 2008 and got down to my goal weight of 120. But after the wedding, a combination of getting "fat and happy" and the stresses of grad school, working, and being a wife took their toll. I'm now back up to where I was before and am not happy about it.

I love to cook and am often tempted by some foods that are not-so-good for me, particularly baked goods. I try to use Cooking Light and Eating Well recipes as my inspiration, as well as keeping portion sizes under control. I'm kind of a foodie, which makes eating healthier that much harder!

Exercise-wise, I go to the gym and usually do the Arc-Trainer and strength-training. If it's a nice day, Joe and I live by a greenway and enjoy going on walks together.

Goals - 125 by my ordination in June, run a sub-2:30 half marathon in April, lift weights 2x a week

thank you so much for replying on my blog :)
i know how you feel as far as your mom making you feel fat. ever since i hit puberty my mom started in with the eating healthier foods...you can't eat this, you can only eat that....you can't wear that bikini bc your thighs are too thick....i was signed up to a gym by the time i was 11 & i wasn't even that heavy at 11 but going through that made me depressed & i ended up gaining alot of weight by 13 & ended up weighing around 160-175 by that time & I was only 4'11 then. so i think even though she thought she was helping she was causing me to overthink all of my choices about being healthy to where i would get overwhelmed and just give in to overeating & not exercising.
when i was 12 i would actually skip lunches at school during the week bc my mom made me feel that i had to lose weight to fit into the bikini that all the other girls were wearing & i ended up passing out in the gym one morning. it's always tough bc to most girls, their mom is their toughest critic. hang in there. i'm sure once you reach your goals she will no longer make you feel that way & may even start coming to you for advice :) i know my mom is samller than me & she has now started doing that bc i have lost so much :)
WE CAN DO THIS!
if you ever need someone to talk to or some extra motivation i'm here for you! :)
