Keeping the Flowers....

Spending a year overhauling my life one step at a time.

I, like many other people on this site, have been down this road before and am back this time with a vengeance. This will be my first attempt using an actual tracker like Sparkpeople. I find that, when I don't hold myself accountable, I let all kinds of slips get by to hamper my progress.

Spending a year overhauling my life one step at a time.

I, like many other people on this site, have been down this road before and am back this time with a vengeance. This will be my first attempt using an actual tracker like Sparkpeople. I find that, when I don't hold myself accountable, I let all kinds of slips get by to hamper my progress.

This time, though, I'm totally done and fired up enough to keep it going. I have my incentives (aside from simply looking/feeling/being better) all set up and a way to make them happen. I have an awesome support group of friends who are my cheerleaders and my inspiration.

So it's time to get to work and make it happen. I always get mad at people who complain but never do anything about it... it's time to hold myself to the same standard on my weight. I hate it, it makes me feel bad, it's got to go! Eating any quantity of any food I want is no longer worth the cost, so it's gone. Sitting in front of my computer gaming for hours every night is no longer worth the lack of muscle tone, so it's gone.

It's hard, but it will get easier. Every milestone is a win for my willpower and in cementing a new lifestyle. Let's do this. GOMAAM, I'm done.

Fitness Minutes: 29,345

My Goals:
I want to get down to an ideal body weight by summer/Lilies 2014).

This is a second run, my first taking me from 246 to 185. Now, after taking a break and gaining a bit back, I'm trying to go from 230 to 170.

Mini Goals -
215 - Arm Band for my MP3 player.

199 - Pedicure

189 - New Shoes

179 - Goodwill Spree

170 - Something awesome?

My Program:
Using the basics I learned in the Weight Watchers Core program and watching my food content better for fats and carbs.

Along the way, I'll give myself incentive prizes for sticking to it (see goals for the outline.) These have been reset for the new plan and are closer together but less expensive.

Personal Information:
Formerly of Aston Tor, I'm currently of the Canton of Axed Root, Barony of Coeur d'Ennui, Kingdom of Calontir.

Or, Modernly, Williams, IA.

Other Information:
I'm a card-carrying member of the SCA in Calontir , a weaver, and a girl who needs a bit of a change in her life.

emoticon I looooved your post on my blog. Thank you so much. I will be rereading and taking notes you had some great ideas. My favorite was listening to music while cooking to make it fun.

Thanks again

I saw your user name and did a double-take.

I've only been to Lake Okoboji twice, but had a great time. I used to live in Nebraska.

Small world.
