In search of that thinner healthier person I know is inside me. She's been trying to get out for years, but I've always put work, family, and friends first never myself. This time I've realized that if I don't start putting myself first eventually I won't be able to help the others in my life. So here I am...time for a change! Keep moving forward!

Member Since: 4/9/2012

Fitness Minutes: 14,943

My Goals:
To be healthier and feel better about myself.

Short-term goals:
1. To drink 8 glasses of water a day. Update - I do this almost everyday, about 95% of the time.
2. To make fitness part of my regular routine. Update - I need to focus on this more over the winter months, once snow hit I've slacked. 2014 Update - I still struggle with getting fitness a priority. Despite the struggle I will keep trying!
3. To be more conscious of what I eat each day. Update - even when I've been offline for a while I still was very much aware of what and how much I was eating. I have the awareness now! 2014 Update - I'm very aware of what I eat and when I just need to do better planning with home cooked meals and less eating on the go.

Long-term goal:
To lose 100 pounds and be healthier and feel comfortable in my body. Update - I've was down 33 pounds by Sept-12 but I've gained a couple back over winter currently down 31 - getting back on track!


My Program:
I am working my program by drinking my water, tracking my nutrition, and tracking my fitness through Spark People. I rely on this program as it helps me feel more accountable for my successes and setbacks.



Personal Information:
My name is Sherri. I am 46 years old and married to a wonderful man who is much more active and healthier than I. I have two grown children and two grandbabies that are the spark in my life. I work full-time as a department manager in a very stressful business.

I've always had weight issues as far back as I can remember. I've tried many things over the years to lose weight and have had some success. But since I turned 40 my battle seems to have become much harder. I love keeping busy and doing things with my family, but have found something much harder to participate in with the extra weight.

I want to enjoy life and be happy in my body. This time it WILL work!


Other Information:
Live each day to the fullest, and take time to enjoy the simple things in life!

    Welcome to Week 8 of the Summer 5% challenge! I truly enjoyed this journey with you. Take a moment to reflect and think about where you are today. Have you made some healthy living improvements? Have you started some new healthy habits? Remember, improvement is motivation. Your body hears everything your mind says so stay positive throughout your journey. Finally, if you want it, work for it! It's that simple! Hope to see you during the 5% In Between Challenge and/or during the Fall 5% Challenge.

    My fellow ROWDY REBELS,

    Most importantly, don't forget to POST THOSE NUMBERS! We must CRUSH anyone who stands in the way of a ROWDY REBEL VICTORY and we can only do that by posting promptly and consistently.

    Remember, posting promptly everyday is crucial to our success.
