My commitment for the Spring 5% Challenge 2012:
To exercise at least 20 minutes 5x/week.
No specific diet, but keep to lower processed carbs, and eat at least 5 fruits & vegetables every day.
To check in with SparkPeople at least 1x/day.
To weigh myself 1x/week.
I'm a 50-year-old wife and mother of three (17, 19 & 22), I have lived in 10 cities in the past 20 years, some overseas. I moved in August 2009 to The Hague (The Netherlands), and am taking advantage of not working (yay!) to work on myself!
I'm a shorty at 5 feet 0 inches tall, which makes it hard to hide any extra weight. And to think I thought I was heavy when I was 18 and 120 pounds...
So am recommitting to the path of less emotional eating, more healthy eating, and regular exercise. And participating more consistently in the Sparkpeople community - it would be a shame not to make the most of this great resource!
Sometimes we all need some inspiration!
To lose at least 70 pounds (to get to 120), but given my petite stature and small bones, I might need to go lower.
To stop the emotional eating and eat healthy foods in a mindful way.
To exercise at least 5-6 times per week, including cardio (swimming, bicycling, walking) and weight training.
No specific diet program, but just making better choices: more fruits and veggies, more protein, less refined carbs and white stuff.
Cardio: 20-40 minutes, 3 times/week.
Weight training: 30 - 60 minutes, 3 times/week.
For motivation, I'm always reading at least 5 weight loss/motivational books at any given moment.
Currently living in The Hague, originally from New York, but have moved domestically and internationally many times in the past 20 years.

Hey there, fellow Firecracker! WTG on your weigh in results!
What wonderful weather, no? The city center was even livelier than it usually is on Saturday with street musicians, people eating ie cream, etc. As for me, it inspires me to get out and run in it!
