Only a challenge provides an opportunity to be great! I'm going to be great...and skinny!

My journey on Spark began after seeing a picture of me taken by a friend Memorial Day weekend 2009. Unaware the picture was being taken, there was no opportunity to pose; no opportunity to make things appear just a little better. The picture, although disturbing at first, provided me with a wonderful gift. I did not recognize the person in the picture. The picture helped me see how I appeared to the world - not just my weight, but how I carried myself. I lost 50 lbs between 2009 and 2010. ...

Unaware the picture was being taken, there was no opportunity to pose; no opportunity to make things appear just a little better. The picture, although disturbing at first, provided me with a wonderful gift. I did not recognize the person in the picture. The picture helped me see how I appeared to the world - not just my weight, but how I carried myself. I lost 50 lbs between 2009 and 2010. I thought I would never make the same mistake again. I thought I had it all figured out. Unfortunately, I followed the statistics. I gained most of it back. I'm starting 2013 looking much like my before picture. I know SP works and I know I can do this.

My Goals:
"To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all." (Oscar Wilde)
#1: I want to "live" life more fully. I have let my weight make choices for me. I think the only thing worse than people who just "exist" are those who realize they are just existing

#2: Make exercise part of my life again

#3: Get my weight down. 20lbs by March 30 & 40 lbs by June 30

My Program:
Nutrition: Balanced diet, calorie counting and tracking food in SP.

Exercise: DVDs for cardo and weight training. Using a mix of The Firm, Jillian Michaels, Jackie Warner and others. Use C210K app to start running again.

Personal Information:
Married with two adorable, but not so well behaved (afraid of everything) dogs. We live in SE Michigan, but spend a lot time on the west side of the state at Lake Michigan. I work too much and am always trying to find balance.

Other Information:
"The future is not some place we are going, but one we are creating. The paths are not to be found,
but made. And the activity of making them changes both the maker and their destination."
--John Schaar

emoticon Hello Sparkie - How are you? I'm traveling to CA this week then back to Nashville to clean the house and ready it to be placed on the market to sell. Still so much going on with the new job, new life in HI that I have not been Sparking or exercising. Trying not to beat myself up about it. Told myself I'll take the dogs on a long walk on Wednesday when I get to TN. Looks like you've been doing well for 8+ weeks! emoticon

You can do it! Remember, this is OUR year and we're gonna rock it! Hell, if you're in your gym clothes, do some commercial-lympics! (During commericals do squats of leg lifts) No one said you had to go to the gym right? emoticon

Hey Sue! We've all been there! I've recommitted this year. Already lost 175 pounds! (Oh wait, that was just my boyfriend) Oh well, I'm laser focused on my goal now - and ready to finally finish what I started. Great job kicking those tortillas butt! We can do this!
