I've been a member of SparkPeople since 2007, but I was never an active member until 2012. What a difference being active makes!

I am doing the Rookie to 5K program. I am so excited, I always wanted to be able to run!

Third time is the charm:

I am back again. I've come back to SparkPeople 3 times now in about 5 years. When I started in 2007 I weighed 283 lbs and have lost 30 over the years. I never stick to it because I never stick to anything. This time ...

Third time is the charm:

I am back again. I've come back to SparkPeople 3 times now in about 5 years. When I started in 2007 I weighed 283 lbs and have lost 30 over the years. I never stick to it because I never stick to anything. This time is different though. I've made a lot of changes in my life this last year.

I am working on a divorce, met a man that I absolutely adore. My job is rewarding and I graduate this year. Everything is going so well that I think it is time that I dump some extra baggage, about 90lbs of it.

I am sticking with Yoga because it is my favorite type of stress relief. I am now working on buying a treadmill. I want one really really bad.

I've lost a lot of weight before, and I am not sure what happens (I think it's the stress of my life) but I just go back to eating unhealthy and being lazy. I am NOT doing that this time. I'm in my 30's now. I spent a good chunk of my 20's being heavy and miserable. I am not going to spend anymore time being that way.

Now is the time for me to succeed. This is going to be a wonderful year, full of change and new beginnings :D

My Reward Schedule:

10lbs: New Clothes
20lbs: Spa Day
30lbs: SHOES!!! Lots of shoes (I love shoes)
40lbs: Exercise equipment (I like to collect it more than use it I think)
50lbs: Shopping Spree for new clothes
75lbs: TRIP TO NEW YORK

TO STICK TO SPARKPEOPLE and reach my goal weight of 150lbs.

I WILL login to SparkPeople everyday, read blog posts, posts in forums, read inspirational articles every single day!

I WILL track my calories and exercise on my phone, every day without fail.

My Program:
My short term plan:

Drink 8 8 oz. glasses of water a day.

Do Yoga daily, and hike when I am able.

To manage stress without relying on food:
To use a reward system that is not centered around food.

Write in journal everyday.


Personal Information:
I am 31, and working on becoming seperated. I have a pitbull mix that I love to death (her name is Penny) and live in Nashville, TN.

I will graduate this year from Universtiy of Phoenix Nashville Campus with a B.S. in Psychology. I plan to continue on with my Masters. I want to use Psychology in Advertising and Marketing.

Thanks. I'm actually in Antioch, so not too far away. We should totally do a spark meet-up sometime. I desperately need healthy friends. :-)

Thanks for the encouragement. I'm going to keep trying to make healthy choices, but I still am not happy about it. :-)

You go girl! I like your spunk. And you give me hope that there is life after a divorce! I am on the fence as far as getting a divorce. It's scary feeling because I have been maried to him for 16 years and we have 3 kids...so tough.
