I'm the mother of 2 terrific children.
I live in Florida, where the heat alone should dictate that everyone is thin! Then again, that heat can be our worst enemy. Contemplating going out for a walk when it's 102 with the heat index can be daunting. ;-}
My children are healthy, I am not. I need to set better examples for my family before they start to eat like I do, and lie about on couches instead of going outside to play. I just hit the big 4-0 on 6/10/07.
It's TIME for a healthy lifestyle. I'm so excited.

My Goals:
I've set a weight, it may change- it may be too ambitious for my age. We'll see. I need to lose over 50 pounds to get there, and I've given myself a year to do it. Seems reasonable. =)

My Program:
I'm going to track what I eat, I've been looking at portions (that's the easy part for me), as well as what I'm eating. I eat far too much fat for any human being, apparently. Never enough protein. I'm learning so much at Spark! I thought I was a carb-a-holic. But looking at my reports, I see it's high fat, low protein that I struggle with most.

Working on that. (harder). Exercise is something that I'm new to. My cardiologist previously banned cardiac workouts, but is letting me do some monitored workouts in a cardiac rehab facility to see how my heart handles it. (It'll be fine, it wants to work out.) My back has some issues that have made weight training a tricky situation too. But the facility that I'm working out in also has gym equipment and they monitor you closely since it's a rehab facility. I feel safe trying it out. They know my heart and back issues.

I always walk. I'm a walker. With a 9 and 2 year old, I have to get some exercise just racing ar

Personal Information:
I live in Central Florida. I've lived all over the place though.

My name is Meridith.

I'm interested in meeting supportive, nurturing people who like to share their tips, successes, failures (I'm a good listener, too!), and just know that there are others out there facing the same struggle that I am. =)

Other Information:
Several friends have forced me to watch "The Secret". It's actually been a real motivation for me to thing positively, let go of any negative speak in my head, and envision success with this whole plan. It's really helped to get me started on this journey and to continue (since mid June '07) along. I can recommend watching the DVD with a group of friends who are also struggling with something in their lives.
