Time to get serious...

Hi, I'm Amanda.

Back in 2007, I started my journey on spark and in about 6 months managed to lose 26 pounds. Over the course of the next two years I regained 32 pounds. How could that happen, you may ask. I stopped making myself a priority. My husband and I bought a house, we got a dog and working out and being healthy fell by the wayside.

November 2009 came and I did it again. Lost the weight. Got to a new adult low of 144.3 lbs and then proceeded to regain ...
Hi, I'm Amanda.

Back in 2007, I started my journey on spark and in about 6 months managed to lose 26 pounds. Over the course of the next two years I regained 32 pounds. How could that happen, you may ask. I stopped making myself a priority. My husband and I bought a house, we got a dog and working out and being healthy fell by the wayside.

November 2009 came and I did it again. Lost the weight. Got to a new adult low of 144.3 lbs and then proceeded to regain it all.

I can give you plenty of excuses - the biggest of which was that I found out I had severe uterine fibroids and adenomyosis and had to have a hysterectomy at the age of 33. Considering that was one year ago though and I am still 3 lbs heavier than when I went in for surgery, tells you that there are bigger problems yet to be fixed.

So, here I am again. Ready to recommit and take my life back. I'm back to running (3 miles, woohoo!) and biking with my dad (25 miles, woohoo!).

Stay tuned as I figure out how to live my life for the best me possible.

One sure way to avoid mistakes is to avoid taking action. But in the
long run, avoiding action would be the biggest mistake of all, for
nothing would ever get done.
If you're going to move forward, you're going to make some wrong
turns along the way. Don't let that stop you from proceeding.
There will be many times when you'll look back and wish you had done
things differently. Don't let that stop you from moving forward.
Mistakes are bad enough on their own. Don't be so afraid of them that
you avoid life itself.
Every mistake you've ever made is now in the past. The way to move
ahead is to leave them there.
Learn from where you went wrong, then step confidently and positively
forward. For now is your time to live and to act.
~ By Ralph Marston

You CAN do it White Tiger!!
