YOU CAN DO IT!

"If it is to be, it is up to me!"

Hey, y'all! I'm Ruby. I've been on and off of SparkPeople since 2006. I've learned SO MUCH, but I have a long history with yo-yo dieting. :/

I started gaining weight around the age of 10. Everyone in my family is overweight. I'm the youngest of 9 children and heavier than my 8 older siblings. There are many health issues in my family, from diabetes to depression to cancer to heart problems...the list goes on.

SparkPoints: 17,950

Fitness Minutes: 5,857

My Goals:
To get down to 150# and to become a certified personal trainer and an inspiration to other people struggling with their weight. Never lose hope!

I wanna get fit enough to be able to hike to and camp out at Havasu Falls in 2016.

My Program:
Eat healthier, drink more water, and cut down on the sweets! And find exercises that I love. Hiking, kayaking, camping, and other outdoor activities are at the top of my list!

Personal Information:
I have a beautiful home in Arizona. I wouldn't wanna live anywhere else! Except maybe Oregon. lol

My hubby and I are going to try to conceive baby #1 in early 2016, if I can get myself to a healthy weight by then.

Starting Over SW: 280# on 11/11/14
