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





My newborn niece in her Halloween costume that her loving auntie (me) made for her.





My goal image that I visualize. This is from the cover of the new Colette patterns book.



I have 4 pics in my gallery

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.

SparkPoints: 1,669

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".

Welcome! If you need a shoulder, a friend or a virtual coffee at some point, drop by and say hello! I've been on sp for just over three months and am thrilled with the support and results. Thought I might pass it on... :).
