How goes it?

Well, I am a former smoker and because I chose to make that health conscious decision I gained 30lbs in 4 mnths--ack! The roundness of my girth was quite noticeable since I'm only 5'2 :/ Trying to make sure I don't go back to smoking by learning how to eat right and stay active.

As of now (07/2012) I started of here at 195 and am now 190. I drink more water than I ever have and look forward to hitting the track or pavement.

My Goals:
My main goal is to lose more weight than I ever believed possible. I also want to successfully run and finish a 5k.

The more I gained over the years, the more excuses I made and the more comfortable I became. I would just say to myself, "Ok, well as long as I don't go over [insert weight here] I'm fine. I yo-yo'ed between 160 and 170 for years. When I stopped smoking February 2012, I gained 30lbs in almost 4 months. I found that my knees ached, nothing fit comfortably, and my underwear began to burst at the seams for heavens sake! On more than one occasion I considered going back to smoking.
My friend Dorothy (who is also a member) listened patiently to my rantings about my weight and said one simple thing when I was done: SparkPeople.

As always, she was right :)

My Program:
Well, right now I have nothing set in stone. I watch what i eat and make healthier choices. I make sure that no matter what I follow an exercise plan for at least 5 days.

Personal Information:
I am the oldest of six and it just so happens that my siblings are my best friends. I am married with 2 kids and I have a wicked sweet tooth.

Other Information:
I love to read.

Welcome to sparkpeople! I am glad that you have found some inspiration in me! I am still charging forward, not reached my last goal, but it keeps me looking forward.
I have had 4 kids and my weight has always been up and down. Today I am the thinnest and healthiest that I have ever been.
One thing I can suggest is to track your food, be honest about portions and track every bite, no matter how small in the food tracker. Track your workouts and watch the scale.
I know from experience that most people quit because they don't see results when they "think" they are doing everything right. Just follow the guidelines of: track, exercise, 8hours of sleep and change! Watch the scale go down.....(weigh yourself 1x a week at the same time on the same day)
