Fitness Minutes: 1,382

My Goals:
I've been working on maintaining my weight for almost two years. I still struggle up and down with the same 5-6 pounds, so I have to be pretty mindful and watch myself.

My Program:
I abstain from sugar. Being sugar-free isn't for everyone; but for me, it helps tame a food addiction. I also run.

Personal Information:
I'm a teacher from Washington state. I'm the youngest of 5 kids and I was born and raised in the Seattle area.

Other Information:
This is a quote I really like (not sure who said it): "Things go much better when you see motivation as the ability to give yourself the chance to make conscious decisions and take responsibility for these choices. Therefore, the main "enemy" of motivation is the tendency to see yourself as the hapless victim of forces (or urges) over which you have no control."

I was trying to find your Health Magazine article online, but no such luck. Read about you in SP's Success section, amazing! I added you as a friend, a motivational reminder that this can be done! Thank you for inspiring us who are struggling at the moment! emoticon

Your story is amazing and truly inspiring!!! I started out at 310, and you have given me the knowledge that it is possible for me to lose the weight and be able to run a race one day. Thanks for sharing your successes with us all!!! emoticon

I am simply amazed by your transformation and trust me, it has provided me with great hope! Thanks so much for giving me a much needed boost and encouragement through sharing your photos. I have around 240lbs to lose and I need people like you to show me it's possible. Best to you in 2013!!
