I'm 33 years old, and I've been 'heavy' since I was a 12-year-old tomboy. That weight gradually increased throughout school and at my sedentary desk job until I weighed over 200 pounds. For years I fought to lose weight on my own by cutting back food and sporadic exercise, but I stayed at the exact same weight whatever I did. Sparkpeople has helped a lot.
Update: June 2013 - have lost 50 pounds. Am now at the lightest weight I've had in a decade. Halfway to my goal.

Update: September 2013 - 70 pounds dropped (down to 165). More energy and a plan for winter activities. Feeling good! Down 8 sizes from this time last year.

SparkPoints: 43,355

Fitness Minutes: 52,852

My Goals:
-Run a 5K
-Complete 30 days of Jillian Michael's Shred.
-Learn to surf.
-Appear in public in a bathing suit without feeling embarrassed. (Done - Oct. 2013)





My Program:
I'm eating better - more protein, a proper calorie allowance, less sugary treats - and more than I have in years, thanks to the suggestions of my food tracker. I started with an easy half-hour walk once a day, but am now up to a long hike every morning before work - 5 miles or more! I'm not very fast, but I've learned I can 'go forever' - so I'm making that patience & stamina work for me!

Personal Information:
I work in an office, spend most of my spare time reading or writing, and enjoy baking as a hobby. It's not really surprising I ended up at 240lbs, considering I didn't do *any* exercise for years. Now I do, my weight is dropping, and I'm feeling much better... while still doing all those things I did before, too!

Other Information:
"If you trust in yourself ... and believe in your dreams ... and follow your star ... you'll still get beaten by people who spent their time working hard and learning things and weren't so lazy." - Terry Pratchett

With so many team members living in the Eastern US I was surprised to see a West Coast member, even Canadian! I'm in California. Good luck on the challenge and let's all help each other stay strong.
