Long lost me...

I want to be healthy again. I want to be myself, happy and energetic.

Hi there all, I've been a member of Sparkpeople for years now, but I yo yo quite often... something I'm not proud about. But it's all about getting up, dusting off and getting back on the wagon, right?

I'm a 5 ft. 2 in Mexican gal that has a little more extra weight in these God given curves of mine ;) My goal is to reach a healthy weight of somewhere between 120-130 lbs. I do have muscle and I ...

Hi there all, I've been a member of Sparkpeople for years now, but I yo yo quite often... something I'm not proud about. But it's all about getting up, dusting off and getting back on the wagon, right?

I'm a 5 ft. 2 in Mexican gal that has a little more extra weight in these God given curves of mine ;) My goal is to reach a healthy weight of somewhere between 120-130 lbs. I do have muscle and I don't want to lose that!

The highest I have weighed thus far is 180 or so, I don't know exactly because when the scale hit 179.5 I stopped weighing myself out of denial and I'm sure I went up a little higher than that. But through the help of Sparkpeople and keeping track of my calories, I've been able to shed about 25 lbs or so. Sure it's taken me years, but I'm doing it, right? ;)

I have a pretty high stress, full time job in the insurance industry. Yup, I'm sure you can imagine. It's an office job and there are so many goodies that come around there. If it's not doughnuts, it's bagels, if not bagels, cookies, if not cookies, cake... you get the idea, right? I sit most of the day, but I've changed that recently, with walks during my break times and going upstairs to the restroom instead of going to the one on my floor.

So you see, I don't do so well with stress, because I'm an emotional eater. If I'm having a bad day, I figure, "f$(! it, I don't care" and I eat. Then... I feel horrible for doing so. Recently, I've been transferring that to exercising to get my emotions taken care of. Believe you me, though, there are days where eating cheesecake sure sounds better than sweating for an hour! :)

I love being active, I love exercise, and I just recently started running on the treadmill at the gym. I never thought I'd say it, but I love running! I also have done some bikram yoga, which is intense, but totally cleansing in every sense.

I got married in 2003 and I guess it's true what they say about gaining weight because you're comfortable and happy. I also took birth control for four years, which only seemed to help my weight gain.

Thank you all for the wonderful support and for this community.

Much love and peace to all.

Fitness Minutes: 6,330

My Goals:
*Be a runner
*Mountain climb
*Be able to find peace within myself so that I can re-teach myself to deal with stress and other negative emotions in a better way, rather than eating.

My Program:
I am watching my calorie intake as well as working out at least three times a week. I was blessed with the means to purchase an elliptical machine, so I'm able to work out at home. I am drinking lots and lots of water and no caffeine at all.
I like to run on the treadmill, get on the elliptical. I enjoy a good work out DVD such as Tae Bo or Turbo Jam.
I enjoy yoga as well!

Personal Information:
I'm originally from the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles, but have been in San Diego for almost 8 years now. I love it here, although I miss my family.
I'm a shorty, 5 ft 2 in, so weight really tends to slow me down.
I'm a sucker for sweets.

Other Information:
I enjoy reading, photography, drawing, cooking, baking, sewing, music, singing.... man, I think I enjoy many things... can't list them all. :)

I just warmed up the karaoke machine... Join in to sing the classic by Katrina & The Waves (and covered by a bunch of other people)!

I used to think maybe you're DONE GIRL, now baby I'm sure
And I just can't wait to know ya, when you post in the boards
Now every time I go for the mail box, gotta hold myself down
'Cause I just cant wait 'til you write back, you're coming around

I'm walking on sunshine (whoa DONE)
I'm walking on sunshine (whoa DONE)
I'm walking on sunshine (whoa DONE)
And don't it feel good? (HEY!) DONE girl now
And don't it feel good? (HEY!) DONE girl now
All right now yeah! (HEY!)

You know that the fat will melt off now, I know that it's true
And we won't spend all of our lives a slave to the food
(not a slave to the food)
Now I don't want fat back for the weekend, not back for a day,
(no, no, no)
Baby we're done with all that crap now, and that's how it'll stay

I'm walking on sunshine (whoa DONE)
I'm walking on sunshine (whoa DONE)
I'm walking on sunshine (whoa DONE)
And don't it feel good? (HEY!) DONE girl now
And don't it feel good? (HEY!) DONE girl now
All right now yeah! (HEY!)

Walking on sunshine
Walking on sunshine

I feel done love, I feel done love,
I feel DONE love that's really real
I feel done love, I feel done love,
I feel DONE love that's really real
