I'm only 5 feet, so really every extra pound shows up on me... So at almost 50 extra pounds, I feel like a little round ball. I never really had to worry about it before. Even after two kids I was still pretty small without much effort. But somewhere around 35 my weight started creeping up and it began to spiral out of control. So now at 40, I want to get that control back.

My goals: (updated 11/13/11)

Get down to at least 120, though 115 would be better - I didn't reach this by my goal date with Sparkpeople, but I'm not giving up. I started off strong, but at some point I plateaued and didn't do a thing about it... but I'm determined to reach the goal, no matter how long it takes!

I use to be a size 4... Would be happy at size 6 - almost there... I am a size 8 now!

I want to have energy to do fun things with my sons - this goal was so very important to me, and I'm pleased to say I have reached it! One of my fondest memories this year is of playing football on the beach with Nathan and his friend... and I wasn't THAT self conscious in my bathing suit (maybe a little, but I was having too much fun to care!).

Wear a bathing suit without embarrassment... see above. I still have work to do, but much better than I was this time last year!

I truly want to be healthier and to live a better, stronger life... Thi


My Program:
Right now I'm learning better eating habits, and doing some strength training. I need to incorporate more cardio. Would like to start walking and maybe eventually running. I visualize myself running down the beach early in the morning when I'm visiting my mom.

Update (11/13/11) - I have learned so much since I started this. I am going a little more slowly than I would like, but I am confident in the knowledge I have gained, and in knowing what it is I need to do in order to reach my goal.
