Me during my last weight loss... Managed to lose about 100 pounds last time!

I'm a 30-something single professional trying for the umpteenth time to loose my excess weight. I'll try anything once, and now I'm trying SparkPeople!
I'm looking to lose more than 100 pounds, look and feel better, and gain confidence.
I belong to my local Y and try to get there at least four times a week. When I work out at home, I love sweating to "Just Dance" on my Wii! As for my diet, I'm trying to stick to fruits and veggies, low-fat dairy, whole grains and lean protein -- but no beating myself up over a slice of pizza or scoop of ice cream!
I'm a 30-something PR professional living and working in upstate New York, within view of the Adirondacks.
I'm big into distractions when I work out. In fact, I think I'm becoming known at my Y as the girl who reads on the treadmill! I like to read easy, action-packed books while I work out -- some of the best have been "The Hunger Games" series, and now I'm re-reading "Harry Potter" -- so if you have a recommendation, I'd love to see it in the comments!

Today you have the choice to be amazing. Today you can do more than just try. You can succeed. You can be victorious. Today, you can rock your world. You can look yourself in the eye and smile... because you know that you are fighting for an amazing cause: YOU. And YOU are absolutely worth fighting for.
You can also do the same thing tomorrow.

In honour of the upcoming Summer Olympic Games this Saturday in London, I give to you the Olympic Creed which is as true for the games as it is for achieving our own goals and dreams each and every day:
"The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not to win but to take part, just as the most important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle. The essential thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well."
Today, you are a superhero, a survivor, a warrior, and a beacon to others for honouring yourself, your mind and your body; for making the choices that will make you an even better person tomorrow.
Today you are one step closer, because you decided to be. Fight strong, fight well, fight fair.
