Round & Round the Mulberry bush..

I had a dirty, dirty love affair with the wrong food. We're now going through a lengthy separation and I'm seeing someone new; Healthy, Tasty Food. It treats me well, makes me feel strong & helps me get to the top of mountains. I hope we will live a long, happy life together.

Also, I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and ankylosing spondylitis at age 18 and am learning coping and relief skills to manage the pain flair ups. I don't want them to hold me back from life anymore!

My Goals:
I am hoping to get to my goal weight of 140lbs by Mid-November of 2011 and to my ultimate goal of 130 by Christmastime. I quit smoking 4 months ago and have been trying to fight off the weight gained by extra snacking!

My Program:
I am in the midst of an entire diet overhaul, it's time to start finding the healthy food to love with just as much flavor as the bad food; without feeling like I'm missing out on the "good" stuff.

Personal Information:
My sister and my boyfriend are my biggest motivators. We are all on weight loss adventures together and it is amazing! I work between 2 states and have struggled immensely with upkeeping healthy food during travels!

Other Information:
I love to read, to talk to new people, to find new motivation in day to day life and I am absolutely obsessed with photography. Someday, I hope to not fear being in front of the camera :)

I hope you are still going strong, even if you aren't doing it on Sparkpeople. I have been off the site & off of a healthy track for a long time. Going to try again.

Unfortunately I have not yet found anything that helps me feel better. I am not sure what triggers it yet, so I don't know how to ease any pain or aches. Excedrin, ibuprofen, etc. doesn't seem to work. Would love to find a doc who can help me identify what causes flare ups and what to do to ease them! If I find someone - I'll let you know. :)

Your page cracks me up - I understand the love affair thing. I'm in the same boat.

Are you in the Portland area? I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia years ago, and am having flare up issues and need to find a doctor. Any suggestions?

You sound like you're moving in the right direction and have awesome support! :)

Hey!
Don't worry too much about the greasy nachos, you have to give a little sometimes... did you still land within your goal cals/carbs/fats/proteins? If not it is okay, we all have our days. The biggest motivator you will ever have is the way you feel when you do right by your body.

Yesterday I pushed my self & did strength training on a cardio day as well as a walk, well today my body is a little sore, but those numbers on the scale have gone down, another 3.6 pounds... a total of 8 in less than a week. That made me feel really good. emoticon

I was low on calories yesterday in the end, I need 1300-1700 each day & yesterday I only got about 1245. Not too far off. I am a night person, who also has extremely, even dangerously, low vitamin D... makes me want to sleep all day. It is a struggle for me to get moving most days. Do you have someone that you could take a walk with on your days off? Maybe you can ask them to call you by a certain time & plan a walk for soon after.

I've been at the computer for nearly 2 hours! I think it is time I did something! Talk to ya later!

From emoticon to emoticon ... sounds like a plan.
Keep on pushing!

Love your page!! Gah, I'm so tired; thinking is hard. So, I texted you my good and bad stuff already but I want a "hard copy" to note our progress :-)

Unhealthiest: I had hot dogs for lunch. So unhealthy, and I had 2 :-( Thankfully, I did OK with breakfast and snacking (even with the sunflower seeds fiasco) so I'll be able to have a good dinner and still be within my calorie range. All in all, not as bad as it could have been.

Healthiest: I went for a second walk this evening even though it was hot outside and I'm really tired. I don't feel like it now, but when I step on the scale next week I'll be really glad I made the extra effort!!
