Hi -- My name is Nikki and I'm 35. It all started at the end of December 2006 when I had a physical for life insurance. I was shocked at the numbers on the scale! Well, it took terrible life insurance premiums for me to wake up and start doing something about my extra weight. I'm here now and committed to creating a healthier lifestyle for myself.

Update: 10/1/07 - It's been 7-1/2 months on Spark, and I can happily say that I am only 40 lbs away from my goal weight. In 30 lbs I can get new life insurance and save some money! Woo hoo! When I first started this program, I wasn't sure how I was realistically going to lose 100 lbs -- and now I know I'm going to lose it. I'm really living life again! Thanks Sparkpeople!

My Goals:
My goal is to get healthy and lower my cholesterol. My husband and I would like to have a family, but I feel I should be at a healthier weight before we start.

My Program:
My first step was getting involved with the rent-a-dog program. (I borrow a neighbors dog everyday and take her for a walk). I realized it's harder to make excuses to not walk when I see the excited look on "Molly" when I pick her up! Secondly, in January I started writing down everything I was eating. What a shocker! No wonder I was gaining weight. So now that I'm recording all the food that enters my body, it makes it easier to make better choices.

Update: We got a dog for ourselves! Abby - a Rhodesian Ridge/Lab mix. We love her!

Personal Information:
I met my husband 3 years ago on E-harmony and, in the company of 85 friends, we were married in March of 2006 in front of the Bellagio Fountains in Las Vegas.

Other Information:
We recently built a new home in Colorado - making it easy to hit the open road on our motorcycles...
