Hello! My name is Stephanie, and I am a 23 year old girl who loves to run and cycle. I came over from Calorie King because of some serious disappointments. I was SLDIPALMA over there.
I am getting married on July 5, 2008 so I need to get back in shape for my gorgeous gown!
I ran cross country in high school and college, but then in April 2006 I was running a half marathon and did some serious damage to the growth plate in my hip. I was sidelined for 9 months while I healed. Well, because I had always been a runner I had never learned how to eat properly...the calories just melted off from all of the running. So I gained weight...a lot of it.
Now I am back and more determined then ever! I just ran a 5k about a month ago and finished in 24:00 only 4 minutes off my worst cross country time.
I am determined to look great and have some serious muscle! I am trying to set small goals and hit them one by one!
1. 136 lbs by August 31, 2007.
2. 133 lbs by September 30, 2007.
3. 129 lbs by October 31, 2007.
4. 125 lbs by November 30, 2007.

6. 120 lbs by January 31, 2008.
7. 118 lbs by February 29, 2008.
8. 116 lbs by March 31, 2008.
9. 115 lbs by April 30, 2008.
10. Maintain 115 lbs FOREVER!
I am the most determined when I have a training plan for a race or competition. I will stick with it to the T, so I signed up for a bunch of races to keep me on track!

I also work with a trainer 3 days a week on lifting, because if I didn't pay someone I would never do it.
I live in Atlanta, GA, but I am originally from Philadelphia, PA. I have a pug named Stitch who just turned one, and a baby kitten named Lilo. I live with my fiance, and we enjoy going to church, hiking, and playing with our pets!
I love to shop and sing loudly even though I am terrible. On Sunday mornings, I teach a bunch of 1st graders the Catholic faith as a Sunday School teacher.
My favorite books are Jane Austen novels and of course The Bible. My favorite movie is Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. My favorite color is pink!
I am really inspired by the healthy stars like Jessica Biel and Mandy Moore who have great bodies and are not sickly looking.
Hi, Stephanie ! Thank you for posting a comment to my account page. Gosh, little did I know that all sorts of neat stuff could be done through it.
Yes, I'll be more active on SP. I did let my CK account expire. Although, I still have one day left.

Stephanie, congrats on the impending wedding! You are looking at the right source for weight loss - the Bible. May I suggest your starting with Leviticus 11:1-47, then move on to Exodus 23: 25-26, then move to Daniel 1:5-17. Many other scriptures can relate to eating properly, so be sure to search the scriptures, read the Biblical quotes at the end of the posts. Many of us have chosen scriptures which have been given to us by the Holy Spirit or which have helped us.
Blessings on the journey.
