Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
Hi! My name is Kelly!
2/16/2011 Update: I just read back what I wrote here in January of 2010 and I realize that, even though I don't feel like it, I've really come a long way. I've lost about 55 lbs in the last year - which, could be better, but I'm pleases with the progress. But more than that, I've gained energy, confidence and a sense of self. I feel like when I started this journey I was really struggling. I was struggling to live life at all. I was so out of shape that it hurt. And I realize that even today - when my legs hurt from walking 2 miles and playing a softball game - I'm better than I was a year ago. And I'm proud. Thanks to all of my Spark friends who have given me encouragement and support along the way. Here's to another 55 lbs (or more) weight loss this year. I'm excited to be sharing this journey with you!
January 2010 (original post): I recently realized that I was seeing myself differently than how I really am. When I think of myself, I see a trim, sexy woman who has tons of energy and can keep up with anybody. And, the truth is, that's not me.
Right now, I have no energy, I can barely walk from the car to the stadium for my favorite sporting events - let along play sports (which used to be my favorite thing).
I want to be the person that can do anything!
I don't want to be like this forever!
My biggest obstacle has been myself - I'm a busy, working, life of the party kind of girl - and I would rather be out with my friends eating good food and drinking sugary cocktails than putting myself first.
But, that has to change. I'm important - and I just realized that. I also realized that I need to put myself first and find time during the day just for me and my emotional and physical well being!
I'm looking for a sparkbuddy who can help me stay motivated and who wants to talk daily (or close to it) to share the peaks and the valleys!
Lose weight, gain energy and enthusiasm for life!
Reducing caloric intake, Couch to 5k (C25K) program - hope to run my first race in December!!
My name is Kelly. I'm originally from Michigan, spent some time in Northern New York and I'm living in Phoenix, Arizona right now. I'm 26-years-old and having the time of my life. I'm looking forward to sharing this journey with you.
