I joined in June of 2010 with the intention of losing weight (primarily) and getting healthier when I realized I had a significant birthday coming up and started to panic. However, I didn't panic enough, because I didn't really do anything weight-loss wise with the site until the end of August.
On August 28, 2010, I started the 20-Somethings with 100+ Pounds to Lose Biggest Loser Challenge. Thus, I consider August 28, 2010 my first day with Spark (even though SP won't let me change my start date). Since then, I have been making slow, but steady, progress toward my weight loss goal.
I wish everyone the best of luck on their journeys.
Be able to wear Victoria's Secret underwear
Be able to clothes-shop with my friends (not just purse- and shoe-shop)
Lose ~150 pounds one pound at a time.
I have increased my water intake. I now average 12-16 glasses a day!
I have cut soda out completely (last regular soda drank on 1/5/2011).
I pre-plan all of my meals at least the day before so that I stay within my intake goals.
I exercise at least a few times a week, primarily in the evening.
Focus on small goals: 10 pounds at a time.
I am from a small town in Northern Colorado, but I love it here. I am centrally located to most of Colorado's largest cities--Ft Collins is 25 minutes away and Denver is only 45 minutes away. I am single and I don't have any kids (but, I do have a cat, so that's like half a kid, right?) I love to read and listen to music. I watch far more TV than could possibly be good for me. I enjoy movies (though not scary) and love to shop (though due to budget constraints I don't get to enjoy that particular activity nearly as often as I would like). Pretty boring, but that's me.
