Rachel's health journey

I'm a 39 year old trying to change my sedentary ways. I've realized I can't keep putting off my health. I appreciate SparkPeople's approach of small steps to bigger goals.

SparkPoints: 14,188

Fitness Minutes: 18,199

My Goals:
I would like to lose 75 pounds by the time I'm 45.

I would like to improve my cardio level so I can walk up stairs and hills without being out of breath.

I would like to fit in my floral trumpet skirt again.





My Program:
I track my food all day long. I strive to drink 8 glasses of water a day but I struggle with that.

I do cardio 5 days a week for 30-50 minutes. I usually swim, walk or do yoga. I try to mix in some strengthen training in the mornings.





Personal Information:
I generally eat healthy but have a big sweet tooth. I don't have good portion control and often eat emotionally.

I realized that I don't have very many photos of myself. I avoid having my photo taken because i really don't like how I look. Plus I have two cute nieces who can hog the camera.

Other Information:
I knit, watch television, read -- lots of sedentary activities.

Its good to see you working on small goals to improve your life. Choosing goals that don't rely on what the scale says has been effective for me, too. Congratulations on your progress!

Just read your post regarding food sneaking - and it felt like I was reading my own mind! You absolutely put the words into the perfect context for me. It used to be that I treated sneaking food as liberating, and then when I moved out on my own, as a sign of independence. Thanks for sharing!!
