Scaling Down Steph

I have fought with weight issues all of my life - this time I am determined to win!

After becoming ill in 2011 as a result of being overweight, I made losing weight a priority and lost just over 50lbs. Over the last few months I have found myself losing motivation and gaining weight back. I am determined not to let this happen - so here I am finding the help and motivation that I need and hoping to give back the same to others.

I still have quite a long way to go but ...

I still have quite a long way to go but know that I can do it. I know that planning, determination and focus will help me to get there.

I am really looking forward to sharing this journey with all of you!!

Member Since: 4/25/2012

SparkPoints: 6,546

Fitness Minutes: 3,759

My Goals:
Long term goals:

1) To be under 140lbs - this would put me in the healthy BMI category (for the first time that I can remember)

2) To be more confident, healthy and comfortable in my own body

Medium term goals:

1) Be under 200lbs by Christmas - I want to show my family and friends that I haven't given up on myself

2) Mexico in April - I want to be under 180lbs and be able to be more comfortable in a bathing suit (or better yet actually wear a bathing suit!)

3) I want to run a 5k - there is one coming up at the end of Sept/beg of Oct but I have not registered - trying to find the nerve as I have not even started to train...

Short term goals:

I refer to these as my program - my day to day activities.

My Program:
1) Eat within my calorie range 6/7 days of the week - on the 7th day, do NOT exceed 2000 calories

2) Fit in at least 3x at the gym per week - schedule it into the calendar each week - it is a non-negotiable appointment

3) Plan 30 mins of "Fun' exercise 3x per week (ie walking at work, c25k, etc) - schedule it into my calendar as an appointment

4) 1 day of rest from exercise per week

5) Schedule my bed time and stick to it!

6) Plan my meals in advance, pack lunches and snacks and stick to it!

Hi Steph - I hope you back is continuing to improve. Make sure and get what points you have been able to get posted so you get credit for them. It is time for Team Spirit to pull off another win and with us all working together we can do it. Again I hope that you are seeing some improvement with your back. emoticon
