June '08 - Still Working...
The New Bikini - May 08 - To help me keep Working!
My Dream Body...and I WILL get there!
I started this program well over a year ago. I went from a size 14 to a size 4 in pants and lost over 40 lbs. I'm quite proud of that and thankful to Sparkpeople for helping me along the way. In May I was in a car accident and unfortunetly used it as a excuse to fall back into some bad habits, ie- not excercising as much, eating crap and not sticking to the "plan" overall! So now I'm back with a new attitude and ready to make the final push, lose the rest of the weight and the last few bad habits. That means eating clean and working out 6 days a week. I want to be a good example for my children so they grow up with good eating and exercising habits. And most importantly I want to be here for them and my husband for a long time to come.
05/10/08 - UPDATE - Wow! I just re-read my introduction and thought, "Man have I come a long way since I wrote that". So I think it's a good idea to write a new Intro. I'm in the zone...working my plan and feeling great. I'm very close to my goal weight and eating clean and working out has never been better. I'm really enjoying my life and I sometimes can't believe that I have become...well...an athlete, yah that's right that's what I am an athlete...I'm athletic...I'm getting stronger with every lat pull, every reverse crunch, every leg press, every HIIT session and it feels good. Don't get me wrong I still have some bad days here and there. You know the ones, where you just want to stay in bed...don't want to even think about entering the gym, want to eat an entire cheesecake kind of day? Sometimes I get through unscathed and other times I fall flat on my face but I persevere and that really is what it's all about...it's not the destination that counts it's the journey and I'm planning one hell of a ride!!!

Hey there, I just wanted to stop by and invite you to join my brand new SparkTeam. It is called No Topic Off Limits and I plan for it to be a very active and diverse group to not only talk about weight loss but ANYTHING else under the sun. It would be great to have you there! Just copy and paste the link if you are interested. If not at least check it out before you turn me down ;)
