Get Up And GOOOO!!!

Busy, overweight mom who really wants to get a handle on not just her weight, but wants to just plain FEEL BETTER! My goals are simple: move more, stretch and be less stressed. With this, I think I will eat better and feel better too! Oh, yeah, and hopefully lose a bit of weight in the process!

My Goals:
***First goal of 30 LBS by August 31st - BLOWN OUT OF THE WATER!!!!!

When I started SparkPeople on 5/29, I only made one goal and that was to lose 30 pounds by 8/31. I hit that so early and then I never updated my goals. SO, in thinking this through, I realized I actually DO have a couple of goals and I shall share them.

** As a joke, when I started losing this weight, I thought to myself, boy if I could get 60lbs off, I should get that nose piercing I've been wanting since I was 18! GUESS WHAT?! I went for it! 12/22/11

** My second goal will bring me back to my childhood. I grew up riding and showing horses (Arabians to be exact, crazy critters). SO, my second goal shall be that when I reach 100 pounds, I will set up a couple of riding lessons for myself!!!

Older stuff, but still important:
*B

My Program:
Move, Move, Move!!! And Move some more. Oh, and meal planning. When I have the right food to eat, I typically will!

Personal Information:
I live outside of Columbus, OH. I have 2 little female monsters and a husband that I absolutely adore! One of the fun things about losing this weight has been the surprising change in attitude about life. Before it was trying to accomplish an item to move to the next item and the next and the next. I REALLY want to stop living life that way, and I know it's very difficult, life is so very busy. But, I have to think that life wasn't meant to be lived this way. I want and deserve to be more happy, enjoy my kids more and take the time to really soak everything that is going on - the good and the bad!

Other Information:
LOVE my Kindle. In to Harry Potter, Twilight and the Outlander Series by Diana Gabaldon. Watch barely any TV (cuz I'm always reading)!

Yes, that's definitely the way of life. Change is a constant thing -- if there is no flexibility or healthy coping mechanisms for when they come, progress will never be made (learning this lesson is an ongoing process for me...)

I agree on the importance of encouragement and support. It's so helpful for navigating the dips in life. The community at SP is a big reason that people are able to authentically go through their journeys. There is no judging when we get tripped up, just support, encouragement, and helpful ideas for getting back on track.
