"If it is to be, it is up to me!" Make it happen! GO, GO, GO!

Hey, y'all! I'm Ruby. I've been on and off of SparkPeople since 2006. I've learned SO MUCH about exercise and proper nutrition, but I have to confess that I have a problem with yo-yo dieting. :/

I started gaining weight when I was about 10. Everyone in my family is overweight. I'm the youngest and heaviest of my 8 siblings. There are many health issues in my family, from diabetes to depression to cancer to ...

I started gaining weight when I was about 10. Everyone in my family is overweight. I'm the youngest and heaviest of my 8 siblings. There are many health issues in my family, from diabetes to depression to cancer to heart problems...the list goes on and on.

I'm ready to get in the best shape of my life! I hope to someday become a certified personal trainer and/or nutrition coach, so that I can help other people who have issues with their weight. :) I am here to give and get support. LET'S DO THIS!!

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 the summer of 2015.

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!

I'm a sucker for SparkPeople challenges. I love to push myself to see how far I can go!

Personal Information:
It's time to get this right. No more excuses!

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

emoticon Smiling is infectious: you catch it like the flu, When someone smiled at me today, I started smiling too. emoticon I passed around the corner and someone saw my grin When he smiled I realized I'd passed it on to him. emoticon I thought about that smile and then I realized it's worth! emoticon A single smile, just like mine, could travel the 'round the earth. So if you feel a smile begin, don't leave it unprojected. Let's start and epidemic quick, and get the world infected! emoticon
Have a great week. Keep tracking, drinking your water and getting in some fitness minutes! emoticon

Am I blind or is this being written in disappearing ink? Probably appropriate, since I'm the disappearing chick. Thanks for checking on me. You are a good friend. Glad to see that you are still as feisty as ever. I hope you can see this because I sure can't. It's weird. I'm typing and nothing appears. emoticon
