I did my first 5k! The Color Run - Dallas (February 19, 2012)

Aim for better every day, never perfect right away.

I never in my life thought that I would reach a weight that would inhibit me quite like this. I've always been a "chunky" girl, but now, at my highest weight, I find it hard to even walk up a short set of stairs without having to take a long break to catch my breath.

I refuse to do this to myself any longer.

So here I am, starting over again...and this time I'm going to make it work - for my health, and for my future with my daughter.

Member Since: 12/21/2011

SparkPoints: 2,381

Fitness Minutes: 824

My Goals:
Short(er)-Term Goals:

Log calories and fitness daily on SparkPeople.

Drink at least 8 glasses of water daily.

Cut back on sweetened drinks (sodas, flavored waters, juices, etc.) and fast food.

Lose the first 10 pounds. (DONE! 1/15/12)

Complete weekly weigh-ins.

Get out of the "morbidly obese" BMI range.

Run (or walk) my first 5k. (DONE! The Color Run - Dallas [February 19, 2012])

Stop binging to cope with boredom, loneliness, sadness, and stress.

----------------------------

Long-Term Goals:

Buy clothing in a NORMAL store.

Wear a single-digit size (which I haven't been able to do since the 7th grade!)

Be able to run up a flight of stairs without getting so winded I have to use my inhaler.

Get off my inhaler.

Run a half-marathon.

Lose 150 pounds.



My Program:
Currently, I am counting calories using SparkPeople (with the help of SparkRecipes), and excersizing at home when I can. Workouts are a little tough for me at the moment, as my weight has caused pulmonary issues (meaning I have to have my inhaler at-hand at all times, which stinks!)

As I lose weight I plan to increase my physical activity.

Personal Information:
I am a 26 year old single mom, working in the hospitality industry (i.e. sitting at a desk in an office full of fellow food-lovers who believe in LOTS of sharing!)

This is my THIRD attempt at SparkPeople, and dedicated weight loss. I am a binge eater.

I am 5'2" (and a half!)

Other Information:
I love to read, and I LOVE music. I've found that one thing that motivates me more than anything is MUSIC, so if I have some good tunes on, I have the urge to just get up and go (which is something I plan on taking full advantage of during this lifestyle overhaul!)

I'm doing well. I went to 2 birthday parties over the weekend and filled up on fruits and veggies at the first and only had a small piece of cake at the other...and stayed within calorie limits. I keep getting frustrated when the scale is not moving as fast as I'd like though. I can't seem to find a lot of time to workout so I'm trying to think of new things to do that can burn some calories. So frustrating cause before when I lost 80 pounds I was a teenager with no responsibilities and had all the time in the world to workout and do whatever and now it seems like as a mother have no time for me.
