A little about me...

This is my 3rd or 4th or 5th attempt at making Sparkpeople work for me. I love the idea of it, and when I manage to stick with it I do great. I just tend to move away from the website, and my weight-loss and healthy living goals entirely too easily.

I read my last introduction and I was a 35 year old college student majoring in Psychology. I am now a 37 year old (almost 38) college student with a B.S. in Psychology, working on a Masters Degree in Special Education. Getting a Masters Degree while working full time is difficult and time consuming, which gives me excuses to skip taking care of my physical self while I work on my mental self. I need to stop using excuses.

Member Since: 11/28/2007

Fitness Minutes: 2,802

My Goals:
Long term goals:
Be healthier.
Lose 50-70 pounds.
Fit in a size 8 again.

Short term goals:
Start excercising.
Eat more fruits and veggies.
Fit into a size 14 again.

Immediate goals:
Make it through the weekend without eating too much junk food.

My Program:
I am tracking what I eat with the nutrition tracker, and tracking my excercise with the fitness tracker. I am also making contacts through the message boards. It helps to know I'm not doing this alone.

Personal Information:
My name is Shari, I'm 37 years old, happily married and have pets instead of children. I work a full time job as an administrative assistant. I also do the billing for my brothers landscaping company. I am trying to lose weight to get healthier and be an active participant in my life instead of living through the TV.

Other Information:
I LOVE to read. I read mostly sci-fi/fantasy, but I'll read pretty much any work of fiction I can get my hands on.

    Hey - how has your week been? It's Friday and for almost 5 days I've made good choices. Hope you have too. The weekend is here - time to seriously plan how I will get through. I really want to lose weight and this is where I usually blow it. Already - I'm having lunch with my daughter (I'll be find there). Tomorrow we are meeting friends for brunch at O'Charlies. I don't know what they have, but I guess I will go on line and try to decide before hand what I can do.
    I hope that you have a great, fun, successful weekend. you can do this. (think I can, I think I can. . . .) emoticon
