My name is Sandy and this is me getting healthy and finally losing this extra weight. Before the birth of my son, I had NO problems maintaining a healthy weight. I was thin and if I felt like I needed to drop a few pounds, I just stopped eating junk food, as well as breakfast and lunch. So I was at a healthy weight, but I wasn't healthy.

Then I got pregnant. And I put on something like 60 pounds. And I found out that losing 60 pounds is TOUGH! It's been a hard road but I also found out that IT IS POSSIBLE!

I've done a lot of thinking throughout this journey. I thought about why I joined SparkPeople. I thought about why I wanted to lose weight. In the beginning, it was to lose weight, fit into my clothes and not feel like crying when I looked in a mirror. My motivations shifted as the months went along. Suddenly I wanted not only to lose weight but to be healthier, and to raise healthy children. I want to be healthy and happy and I want my son to see that in me. I want to not only be able to motivate myself, but also others. I want to get back to a place in my life where I can go outside, start running "just because" and keep running until I want to stop, not have to stop. I want to have more children and be healthy enough to have no complications. And VERY long term, I want to grow old and be healthy.

It is definitely a lifestyle change for me...and I really don't think I'll ever go back to the old lifestyle. This one is proving to be not only rewarding but also FUN!

My Goals:

My Program:
I run, I lift heavy things, I have fun with my workouts.

Recently discovered I have a problem with gluten (full body rash for over a month!). So As of November 2015, I've been gluten free. In March of 2016, I went completely grain free, sugar free and starting eating primal/paleo/ketogenic.

2017...this is my year to drop body fat below 20% and build some impressive muscles!
