Losing weight for the LAST time!!!

Here I am again. I had great success with SparkPeople in 2011. I slid a bit in the final months but did not regain everything I had lost.

I'm ready to dive in and make a healthy lifestyle my focus for 2012.

Update 8/9/2011-

I am 7 months into my weight loss journey and down almost 35 lbs. That may not seem like much but I am only about 15 lbs from my ideal weight and have really concentrated on adding lean muscle.

I have ramped up my activity ...

Update 8/9/2011-

I am 7 months into my weight loss journey and down almost 35 lbs. That may not seem like much but I am only about 15 lbs from my ideal weight and have really concentrated on adding lean muscle.

I have ramped up my activity by supplementing my workouts with fun things like windsurfing, stand up paddleboarding and kayaking. I love my newfound energy!!

While I still have more weight to lose I certainly feel lean and slim. I can see muscle definition in my legs arms and back. It has been an exciting process.

Update 3/28/2011-
I am almost 3 months in and still going strong. I've lost 20 lbs and seen major changes in my energy levels. I'm proud of the progress I've made with nutrition and exercise and look forward to fine-tuning my healthy lifestyle as I continue on this journey.

Since I started in Janurary, I have enrolled in Grad school and paid off a lot of debt. I really feel that this journey is all-encompassing and has helped me improve all areas of my life.

1/4/2011-
I will be 40 this year and I am ready to shed my extra weight for the last time. I feel confident that now is the time for several reasons:

1. It's a new year!
2. I've just earned my degree.
3. I've recently landed my "dream' job.

What does any of that have to do with losing weight? I've just successfully completed the biggest challenge of my life- earning my college degree in 3 1/2 years while working full-time and raising my two kids- by myself. My confidence is high and I am ready to take on a new challenge.
