50 lbs down! Goal reached!

Update as of January 2014 - Ahhhh, I was the victim of holiday weight gain! I'm back at it mentally and physically, and I will get back to where I was before.

I started a weight loss blog to reach out to others outside of SparkPeople. But still, check it out, leave comments, give me your thoughts! fitfoodieblog.wordpress.com/ (Copy & paste into address bar.)

My name is Kristen. I'm 23 and was born and raised in upstate NY. I was always a chubby person, but early 2010 I was the heaviest I've ever been at about 160 pounds (I'm barely 5'1", so I was considered obese) and couldn't take it any longer. I started to eat healthier and became more active. It has been a long journey (2+ years) and quite the learning experience, and I wouldn't change a thing. On May 4, 2012, I reached my final goal of losing 50 pounds! Since losing 50 pounds, my body fat percentage has dropped by at least 15%. (I never did any measurements prior to losing weight. I was in denial of how big I was.) Right now my body fat percentage is around 22%, and ideally I would like it to be under 20%.

STARTING WEIGHT - 160 (February 2010)
150 (April 2010)
140 (June 2010)
130 (August 2010)
120 (December 2010)
110 (May 2012) - GOAL!

STARTING BMI - 30.2
CURRENT BMI - 20.6

Fitness Minutes: 33,677

My Goals:
2014 Goals:
- Say goodbye to "skinny fat" by concentrating on strength training more than cardio and eating as clean as I possibly can and reducing the amount of sugar I consume

- Run my first charity race

My ultimate goal: Have my weight loss story featured in a magazine

My Program:
My plan as of now: Concentrating more on strength training rather than cardio. I'm still running but not as much.

I still measure and track my food. I'm eating between 1,500 and 1,800 calories daily, and I try to keep my carb/fat/protein breakdown at 50/30/20. I've cut way back on the processed foods and added sugar, and I try to eat as clean as I possibly can. I drink 8+ cups of water daily no matter what!

Personal Information:
I love to encourage and motivate others. I have a wonderful, supportive boyfriend. I've been a vegetarian for over eight years. I'm a huge Hanson fan. I love photography and art. And I'm a big Harry Potter nerd.

Hi, what a wonderful inspiration you are! I am contacting you as I was reading some old message board content trying to get a handle on how to increase protein in my daily diet as I don't eat a lot of meat. I juggle the food numbers in my tracker every day and often fall short on protein. A lot of proteins are high fat which is a bit annoying. I have discovered things like nuts/seeds, avocado, tahini, hummus, legumes, tofu, muesli, cottage cheese, canned fish (salmon, mackerel, sardines), eggs, peanut butter. But you can only eat so much of these every day and the calories add up quickly. I guess I'm looking for the miracle protein answer and I saw that you commented you are a vegetarian and get enough protein so I thought I'd check in with you. Any suggestions? Thanks emoticon

Hey love!

Trying to find all of my SP buddies by random searching, and hopefully the rest find me. My old account is deleted and I've made a new one, I never left, just wanted a nice, clean slate for phase two (:
