Here's me. I weigh less in this photo than I do now, but I like the happiness in my eyes here! This

DIY-ing into a healthy weight

I guess I've just chosen a big weight loss goal: 50 pounds within a year. Weird to see that as my goal! I love to sew and make things. If you do, too, please say "hi." I have some challenges: migraines, knee problems, food allergies. I have a lot of strengths, too: I'm smart, I'm disciplined, I like exercise, I am a great cook, and I have a loving, supportive husband.

Fitness Minutes: 1,417

My Goals:
I'm just going to go with Dr. Beck's goal for me at this time, which is a 5 pound weight loss.

My Program:
I'm using Beck Diet Solution and calorie counting. For a long time, I used Weight Watchers and I'm trying to simplify that a bit by just counting calories.
For fitness, I tend to either use yoga podcasts, videos at home, or Wii Fit or dancing games for Wii. I joined the local YWCA also.

Personal Information:
I just moved to St. Paul. Here's a secret: to relax myself, I like to look at my patterns and think about making clothes.


Other Information:
The challenge for me will be to meet my weight loss goals without stressing my brain and giving me migraines. Reducing migraines and my subsequent risk of stroke is my major motivator. I'm an apple shape, so I want my waistline under 35".

Thank you for my blog comment. I use to use B12 and it worked great. I stopped using it for a while and recently tried again but it does not work. If my Vit D level comes back good I'm going to request a B12 check and parasites.

I love your spark page! I really like your description of yourself, and you have a great set of goals. Have you seen Judith Beck's other book, The Beck Diet for Life? I think I might like that one even better, even though the material is more or less the same.

Thanks for the spark goodie! I am very visual. I changed my main pic to a bathing suit pic when i was 160, which is where i will be after 50 lbs. Its not where i want to be in the end, but i would totally be fine there. I started the 28 day bootcamp challenge yesterday. My body is def sore. It was certainly easier doing all of this stuff when i was in college vs teaching and grad school, but nothing i can do about that now. One day at a time:)
