my new fav shoes right now..
Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
I am no longer actively trying to lose weight. I do have weight goals below, but, I am no longer obsessed on getting there at any given time. I'm not even sure if I should. I am now at a healthy weight and I feel good. I am going to try to stay that way. I will continue to eat healthy and stay active because I deserve to, not so I can look a certain way... If I continue to lose weight because of this, awesome! I will not let it determine how I feel about myself. I want to be the weight I am supposed to be, not the weight I think I should be. I am going to trust my body on this one.... Let's see what happens...
Maintained 153 or below most of 2012, time to move forward!!
153: Starting Weight 10-30-12
Maintained until May. 2014
March 2014 Update!
Weight: I dropped from 153 to around 140 in early 2013. Then up again to 147 around September. I think I dropped for bit there too, but, I wasn't weighing in. I went from a size 11(I know, I still wear junior pants LOL) to a size 9. I have maintained my current size and weight since September. Which is nice. I am now ready to kick it into gear a bit and lose a few more pounds and more importantly drop a pants size. Maybe even reach my GW!!! I have a pair of size 7s that have been waiting for me. I want to tone up and not feel so jiggly, and I want to be able to wear my new swim suit this year and feel amazing in it! I am pretty good about what I eat, might just have to work on some portion sizing and drinking more water. I know if I really want to get to where I wanna be I need to become more consistent with exercise. I hope it can become a natural part of my life like my diet is now. Something I just do and don't think about. Here's to 2014!! My year to fall in love with exercise....
Updated Start Date: 10-30-12
I am updating my start date and goals! I had a rough 6 months with alot of stress. I ended up gaining all my weight back plus some! I got up to 153. Thirteen pounds over my original SP starting weight! I gained almost 20 lbs in 6 months. Thats an eye opener... This really made me realize how easy it is to gain weight. Especially as I've gotten older. I maintained this weight most of 2012. I am giving up the excuses and starting over! I hope I will have learned from my mistakes and acheive my goals! Im going to delete my past progress and goals so I can start off with a clean slate! I'm just glad Im catching myself now and not later....
Past Start Date: November 2010
Here's a bit about me.. I'm a mommy to a wonderful little girl. Born January 30, 2009. I'm married to an amazing man. Ive been with him since 2006... We were married Sept 10, 2010.. To summarize. I gained about 20 lbs when my hubby and I started dating. I then gained 50+ pounds when pregnant with my daughter. After I had her I was between 170-175 lbs. I dropped to around 140 in about 6 mos. This was about 10-15 lbs from my "then" GW. I started to lose motivation and started to gain back some of the weight. Then in Nov. 2010 something clicked. I had a spark account, but, I hardly used it and wasn't involved in the community at all. I logged on, created a page, and lost nearly all the weight. I was just a few lbs. away from my current GW. Then something happened and I fell off the wagon... Whoops!

Just stopping by to say hello and hoping all is well. I'm still struggling with the motivation lately and have been a little apprehensive about stepping on the scale. I'm eating well but not exercising as much as I should. Anyhow, I just wanted to let you know that I thought of you and to send you some support.

"Transformation is not five minutes from now; it's a present activity. In this moment you can make a different choice, and it's these small choices and successes that build up over time to help cultivate a healthy self-image and self esteem."
"Make a pledge to yourself right now, to declare that you are worth your time and energy."
Just stopping by to wish you a happy, healthy and fun Summer, Sparkfriend! Keep making those daily choices that will help you move closer to your goal, one step at a time. Right now there are just a little over 90 days until the first day of Autumn. Imagine how much progress you can make by then if you just keep doing your best each day this Summer! Don't forget....you are worth the effort!

"Every day of our lives we are faced with a choice.
The choice to BE, or to be truly AMAZING.
Ask yourself if what you're doing today is getting you closer to where you want to be tomorrow.
No matter who you are, or what you do, you absolutely, positively do have the power to TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE."
Hey Sparkfriend, I hope your week is going great so far. Make the most of each day as it comes, and choose to be amazing! Put forth your best effort....because you are worth it!
