Hi I'm Michelle, welcome to my page,

I have been active all my life aerobics instructor, volleyball, softball, racquetball, running, swimming, biking, you name it, but I have also had difficulty maintaining a healthy perspective on my weight. I am moving toward a place of becoming my own best friend. That means eradicating any negative thoughts about myself. I am looking forward to winning this battle, which really means conquering myself. I shall achieve...

Member Since: 3/21/2011

Fitness Minutes: 5,009

My Goals:
In order to meet my goal of having a healthy relationship with food I plan on eating mindfully and calmly, working out (which I love) and using the nutrition trackers. It is so easy to overeat when you are not paying attention. I will rest when I need to rest and not push so hard that I injure myself. I will strive to be my own best friend and replace negative thoughts with positive thoughts, especially about myself.

My Program:
I will continue my karate training, complete 60 minutes of weight training 2 times per week, take at least one yoga class per week and mix up my cardio training with walking, swimming, cycling and gym machines. I will rest when I need to in order to replenish my reserves. I will practice self-compassion.

Personal Information:
My name is Michelle I am from Oceanside, CA (San Diego) I have 4 teenagers, 4 dogs (3 Akitas & a toy poodle!) and two cats. I am enjoying the best years of my life at age 44 with an amazing partner and fulfilling life.

    Hi and welcome to the SP Community.My name is Carrie and I have been changing my lifestyle now for 2 and a half years Since July 2009 i have lost 50 pds on my own and another 30 pds with SPARKPEOPLE. When i started on SP in 7/4/2010 i was about 235-240. I am now 187 pds and working my way to 135-145 pds.
    I now how frustrating making a lifestyle change can be especially when you feel like your walking through it alone. i will be happy to walk besides all of you and help you through this battle

    medit8or i read your blog on daily chit chat 40 somethings with 10-24 pounds to lose, I'm so sorry to hear you are going through what you are with your daughter. I have two daughters of my own of which I am raising by myself and could never imagine having to go through what you are going through. You are doing the right thing by getting your daughter the help she needs to get through this and I hope everything works out for you and your family. You are in my prayers and thoughts :-)

    Ok, what did I do now. I have to write Maya. She is this exraordinary
    woman and frankly she is so beyond me but I guess this is a direct challenge so tonight will be the night. Atleast my psychic gear is working. Actually came to your page because I was so amused that Bill is now your profile picture. You are such a suck for that cat. I saw a Bill look-alike today. He is my friend's daughter's cat who is staying with her. He is only about a year old but looks much more like Bill then Noah who has a lot of white.
    So, I want a full update. What's been happening with you?????

    I see nothing in the text of your SPage about being a meditator, BUT your user name, medit80r, is a dead giveaway, no? Oh, and I just spied a suspicious-looking team membership as well. So, pray it true, or just a crazy rumor???
    BTW, this is all bluebird's fault....
