Working on a new Happier Healthier Me!

Hello my name is Veronica I am 34 trying to lose some extra baggage. I have been saying it for years but now I need to do something about my weight. I am very uncomfortable with myself and hopefully with a little help I can reach my goal.

I've been on and off this journey for a couple years now :/ But enough is enough! I'm Done! I no longer want to be the fat girl. I hold myself back on doing a lot of things because I am uncomfortable with myself. But I'm on a Journey to change my life!

I restarted my journey for the second time October 2013 and have been going strong ever since. I am trying to be more active on sparkpeople and every day I love it more and more. Slowly but surely the weight will come off!


My mini goals 5lbs a month.

My Goals:
To feel comfortable again. I would like to lose 100 lbs. But my goal right now is to lose 50 by July 2014. That would be nice.

Run a 5k or at least part of one. I don't run at all.

Jump rope more than 20 min.


My Program:
I started drinking a lot of water. I also count calories concentrate on portion control. I read the labels on packages and eat the portion size.

I started walking at work I walk 1 mile on my first break and another on my last break. I try and squeeze 1 or 2 more miles during lunch. I started a virtual walk. I chose a destination that I've been wanting to go like Sea World and I googled walking distance. So I walk daily and when I reach that mileage I will take a trip to Sea World as my reward.
Rewards! Definitely reward yourself for the little stuff too. For every 5lbs I reward myself.


******MY GOALS*****

*To get under 250lbs **DONE 05-18-11

*To wear a size 18

*To wear a size 16

1) Journal at least 1 day a week.
2) Workout during my lunch hour.
3) Drink 8 cups of water a day.

I hope you don't mind, but I added you as a friend and hope you will do the same. It would be an honor to share the spark journey with you. Embracing you in friendship, support and hugs. Have a wonderful evening.
