Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
For as long as I can remember, I could wear any type of clothing I wanted. I wore Kasper suits to work everyday for about eight years. A couple of years ago, I just seemed to blow up overnight. I love to eat which is another drawback. The only plus size to my eating habit is that I love fruits and vegies, BUT I love pasta, cheese, and bread too. I have been on the Sparkpeople.com site now since April and I am happy about my progress, but I am also very impatient. I started on this web site at 200 pounds. I am trying to remain positive and focused. In the meantime, I welcome all tips and I am open to any advice.
My fitness goals are to tone my body and lose 50 pounds in the process.
I want to atleast move from size sixteen pants to a 14 by the end of the year.
Eat even more vegetables and fruit to lower my cholesterol to a safer range.
I record my daily calories religiously.
I also strength train with dumbbells and an Olympic Weight set four days a week.
For cardio, I usually walk or bike ride atleast six days a week.
I live in the south suburbs of Chicago in a ranch home with a huge backyard where I tend my own garden. I have no children yet, but I have seven babies. My babies are Lexx (Rat Terrier-3 yr.), Seven (Rat Terrier-2 yr.), Yoshi & Solo (Chinese Water Dragons), Tivo (Bearded Dragon), and Scavo & Rainy (two Beta fish). The love of my life helps our home to stay full of humor, comfort, and love.
I absolutely love reading. My love started calling me The Reading Raider soon after we met. He thinks he is so hilarious at times . . . lol. I have a few favorite television shows, but I have been discouraged over the last couple of years because when I fall for a show and really start to enjoy it, it gets cancelled or the season ends. It is a running joke in our home for me to say I hate any show that I really secretly love so that it will stay on the air. I really "hate" Entourage, The Game, America's Next Top Model, and TNA & WWE wrestling.
Secrets of Success
This user doesn't have any secrets of success.
I miss wearing my suits to work too. In my case, I changed jobs and now work at a place where the dress code is business casual, so I miss how those suit jackets used to cover up the rolls. I feel so exposed.
Anyway, I just stumbled upon your page and decided to say hi.
