The final 20... or maybe 30...

OK... Time to get serious about these last 20 pounds.
I have been at a plateau for over a year now and I am done!
I am ready to get serious about this.

I know I am healthy! Even though my BMI is still overweight - I know I am healthy. No one would look at me and say, "Wow, she's overweight." but I have my own goals...

I want to feel good in my skin.
I want to try on clothing without fear of having a total meltdown in the dressing room.

I want to be able to wear a skirt in the summer without Spanx to prevent heat-rash between my thighs!

There you have it...
My new beginning.

I am committed.

Member Since: 11/24/2008

SparkPoints: 70,648

Fitness Minutes: 88,983

My Goals:
1) Drink a minimum of 8 glasses of water a day (or water equivalent... LOVING decaf green tea!)
2) Exercise even when I only have 15 minutes!!! Usually I say, "What's the point?" NOT a good attitude!
3) Stay healthy!!! Don't overdo it. Stay within doctor's recommendations for exercise.
4) Stay in control of my goals when I want to grab a snack... Do I REALLY want that?

My Program:
Taking it day by day - tracking food, exercising, not expecting too much too soon. I'm trying to be more kind to myself this time around! :-)
Things I do every day:
1) Track my food!!
2) Go for a walk - inside or outside, depending on weather.
3) Continue with Pilates. It has repaired my body over the past few years & I want to keep moving forward with it!
4) ZUMBA!!! I LOVE it! It doesn't even feel like exercise!

Personal Information:
I am a 43 year old Mom of 3 wonderful children... 2 boys & a girl. I have been married for 19 (WOW) years. I live in The NYC area with my husband - BEST guy in the world - & kids. Grew up in NYC & LOVE being here! There is nothing quite like the energy of the city!

Other Information:
I am a very open person, but prefer to remain anonymous on this site because of various factors in my life. I hope that doesn't turn you off. I take being a Spark-Friend pretty seriously... I don't "collect" virtual friends. I want to develop a circle of mutually supportive people on the site & if I have too many friends I won't be able to give the support I want to give!
