As of 6-17-2012 I hit my original goal of 140. I surpassed that quickly there after and got to my ultimate goal of 135. Five pounds under my driver's license weight!

I'm struggling right now to find the right balance of calories. I'm actually working out more now than I did when I was trying to lose so the scale is edging downward and I don't think I should lose more.

I have a lot of work to do on toning up. Currently I'm using Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred DVD. ...

I'm struggling right now to find the right balance of calories. I'm actually working out more now than I did when I was trying to lose so the scale is edging downward and I don't think I should lose more.

I have a lot of work to do on toning up. Currently I'm using Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred DVD. Because I'm running, however, I'm not doing the cardio portions. Just the kickass exercises. I'm seeing a difference but wish I had started toning much sooner.

I sort of did things backwards. I actually lost most of my weight with very moderate exercise and 1200 calories a day, then when I was almost at my goal, I kicked it up and started running and doing more toning. Weird I know, but it worked for me.

I was just called an athlete the other day by my partner. I've never been called that before. And I actually feel like I AM an athlete.

In my goals I say I want to do a 5k. I can run one, but I haven't run a race yet. I'm not ready. Or I'm too chicken. I'd also like to do a 10k at some point, but we'll see about that once I get my nerve up to do the 5k!

My Program:
Still working on a good balance of calories. Right now I'm at 1500 - 1800 a day but am still in an adjustment mode.

I'm trying to eat less processed foods.

I eat very limited fast food. I try to make the most healthy choice possible when I do eat out.

I love my fruits and veggies.

I drink very limited diet soda and choose water instead.

I'm still working on allowing myself a "cheat" day (even though I hate that term) without feeling anxious.

Personal Information:
My mom used to call me SusieQ, it just never stuck.

My name is really Paula (Sue is my middle name), but I've never really had a knickname.


Other Information:
I live in NE Ohio with my partner of 4 1/2 wonderful years. Between us we have 3 wonderful young adult children (1 still at home), 4 cats, and 2 dogs.

We love camping, kayaking, hiking, and relaxing on the beach with a good book.

DS said his blood sugar was checked while he was at the detention center. It never bottomed out there though. He was rather 'inactive' there and eating 3 meals a day with lots of sleep. Not great sleep mind you as they get their sleep in small blocks of time because of being in a large 'dorm room' type setting with 61 beds/inmates but still, he said it was never below 60 in there and that is the point they worry.

Getting him to eat healthy and on a regular schedule has not been easy and he allows his blood sugar to get too low. This is all new to him though so we are still working on finding a good solution. We also have another doctor apt in September for it and I'm praying the doctor helps him realize how serious this is.
