What a roller coaster ride this has been. 2011 was a write off as I wasn't able to maintain my weight loss and I saw some of the weight come back. It was a total eye opener for me because I thought I would be able to keep my new body without any hard work or proper nutrition. Nope. It doesn't work that way, apparently.
So 2012 is going to be the year that I get back down to my goal weight and learn how to "Maintain" healthy habits.

I'm happy to say that I reached my goal weight of 162lbs. I honestly didn't think I would be able to do it but I worked really hard and I made some big life changes and most importantly I had tons of support on SP. I have great friends on this site who always support me and push me to challenge myself and work harder. Now I have the self image that I've always wanted and I'm not ashamed of my body.

Thanks to everyone for all your help. Don't worry,I'm not going anywhere. It's time to pay it forward and help others reach their goals!

I joined this site for motivation and support. What I've found is so much more. This site gives me free access to tools which would otherwise cost me a small fortune in Canada. Being able to access such a wide array of support groups makes it easy to find people who I can relate to.
My goal is to lose 30 lbs by August 1st. I started on March 1st.
Wish me luck!

SparkPoints: 58,326

Fitness Minutes: 36,489

My Goals:
My 2012 goal is to get back down to my goal weight and practice healthy living full-time.

I plan on completing Insanity in the first 2 months of 2012 and then complete the P90X Insanity Hybrid program. This will take me in to spring and have my ready for summer! It's going to be a great year.

My Program:
SparkPeople is my program. It helps me keep track of my eating and my exercise and it allows me to find support from people with similar goals and lifestyles as me. The support is the most important aspect of the program. Without support, it is too easy to slip back into negative territory.

Personal Information:
Updated 31 August 2010.

I am revisiting my goals and challenging myself to do something more and something bigger and better. Now that I've lost my initial goal weight of 30 pounds I feel like I can do anything. I've still got weight to lose, though so let's go get'em...together.

Other Information:
I love mountain biking and roller blading. I have 2 small boys, 4 and 6 so I don't have much time for extracurricular activities any more. Now that they are getting older I will look for ways to incorporate them into my fitness routines and outdoor activities.
I wish I lived somewhere warmer cuz you can't bike o rollerblade in the snow @ -30 celcius!

Thanks for the comment and the friend add! It does seem to be harder to find active Spark members. I have a small group that I can always count on being there, but I am sad every time I see the long list of friends that are no longer active. Keep up the great work!

Thanks for the great comments on my blog!
As for broth, for a few reasons I don't want to buy actual broth at the store. I've been using Better than Bullion, its like a pasted concentrate. I tried the lower sodium kind but I didnt really like it, so this last time I tried doing half from the lower sodium thing and half from regular, and that worked okay. I do plan to buy maybe a whole rotisserie chicken soon so I can get those bones, just like you suggested! That'll be a first try, I'll need to do some internet research. As for this week, I'm not going to sweat it yet.

As for the whisky, indeed you are correct. It's empty calories and and also opens me up to making less optimal choices. That being said, I don't want to try to 100 be perfect, and be honest about it to myself. I'm trying to think of ways I can modify my life that is an improvement but still maintainable in the long run. Obviously its that category of "not necessary" and not really beneficial, but I'm going to see if I can't have my cake in moderation and eat it too, haha. :) Work in progress!
I AM super super super proud of YOU though for cutting it out!! Especially knowing what you've said about your struggles there. I think that change is HUGELY contributing to all your current momentum and strides and I can't wait to see you go far!!
:D emoticon

PS also, about the tracking, I'm still not sure what to do. i just kind of feel like not tracking those things like the walking I do isn't an accurate picture of my life, either... I wish there was a somewhere in the middle....
Everything is always a work in progress! Life! haha :)
