Patience, grasshopper.

Be patient. Remind yourself that the key to success is small, consistent changes made over time.

Choose to appreciate your body right NOW, for what it can do, not what it looks like.

My name is Tracy and I'm working on being at my best for me and for my baby girl. She is two years old and the light of my life. Working, taking care of a two-year-old, cleaning, and cooking is a LOT more work than I thought it would be! I am trying to treat myself well by eating well ...

My name is Tracy and I'm working on being at my best for me and for my baby girl. She is two years old and the light of my life. Working, taking care of a two-year-old, cleaning, and cooking is a LOT more work than I thought it would be! I am trying to treat myself well by eating well and exercising, so I have the energy for all of this!

Good quote about food addicts:
"You use food to fill a void in your life. When you do that consistently, you begin to believe that every feeling is hunger. When youíre sad, youíre hungry. When youíre angry, youíre hungry. When youíre happy, youíre hungry. Food addicts literally donít feel a difference between emotions and feelings of hunger."

Fitness Minutes: 17,632

My Goals:
-To be the healthiest, happiest version of myself.
-To be a good mother, friend, wife and daughter
-To be FABULOUS at whatever size I happen to be.


My Program:
Right now I am doing the 30 day shred DVD. My workout plan changes all the time. I have run two 5Ks so I enjoy running/walking when the weather is good. I also enjoy Zumba classes on occasion and playing Just Dance on the Xbox.

Personal Information:
I am married with a cute baby daughter. I teach music at an elementary school, which is GREAT for weight loss because it keeps me moving a lot.


Other Information:
I grew up thinking hamburger helper and Kraft macaroni and cheese was a perfectly healthy meal, and being a Southern girl we ALWAYS had sweet tea! I literally never drank water as a child.
So I have learned a LOT during my transformation on SP. No, I am not done, but I am truly a very different person than I was three years and 70 pounds ago.

I'm sorry sweetie. I'm about the same. I seem to love to sabotage myself and my confidence in real change is slipping daily. I'm hanging on by a thread. I'm sorry you're in a similiar place but I say, (if even weakly)"we can do this" We weren't meant to be miserable. emoticon emoticon

Id like to invite you to join in my challenge to lose 10 pound in April .The goal is 10 pounds but really u do what u can. The decision to how much is ultimately up to you. i know some of us might be saying 10 pounds? WOW, that is too much! cant do it! But i am here to tell u i did it for 7 months straight, (lost 75 pounds) b4 i got sick with cancer and had dropped out for 3 yrs. unfortunately due to lack of activity it took me 3 yrs to gain it all back, but im back to tell you that with your help I can do it again. if u stay within ur calories that are alotted and if u track everything that passes ur lips u can do it too. I was never one that stayed on a diet before, for more than 3 weeks at a time, and then I'd get discouraged and dropped off. i lost 75 pounds just doing calorie counting and tracking to make sure i never went over. i barely exercised ...i am handicapped and i cant do exercises in the conventional way but i flapped my arms while showering, and sitting did leg raises, went up and down my stairs whenever it struck me to do so. i did very minimal stuff. the idea was to keep moving and i did that. so i know with disipline, encouragement and motivation u can too.. so i invite u to come and join me on my 10 pound challenge! cut and paste link below...
