Hi! My name is Amy and I am just starting on SparkPeople. I am trying to get off the weight that I put on in college...about 30 pounds! I feel like I constantly gain and lose the same 5-10 pounds over and over and I am ready for it to stop.

The summer began, and once again I was unhappy and not looking forward to getting into a swimsuit. This frustrated me because I absolutely love the beach and I decided enough was enough. It is finally time to make a real and lasting change. I am hoping to update my page a lot so that something will hold me accountable!

Member Since: 6/6/2010

Fitness Minutes: 1,038

My Goals:
My ultimate goal is to get in the 135-140 range. But I am trying to use mini goals to motivate myself!
Starting weight: 163

160 - Buy a new book
156 - Get a pedicure
152 - Buy new running shorts
149 - ???? Be crazy excited that I am finally in the 140s? haha

My Program:
I have been trying very hard to stay within my nutritional ranges everyday.

I have started the couch to 5k program. Been doing a running/walking combo every other day. I am biking around my neighborhood on the off days.

Hoping to start weight training in the next few weeks. But don't want to bulk up! My body likes to do that...

Personal Information:
I am from North Carolina. I graduated from NC State and am now in graduate school at UNC. I am hoping to finish my master's in August and get a job!

I recently got married in April and my husband Thomas is extremely supportive. He has been very motivating throughout this process!

We just bought our first house and I am having a ton of fun decorating it and getting settled!

    Hi I just subscribed to the thread about motivation and exercise. I am trying to become a runner as well and thought maybe we can really help each other out. What are you doing? Following any plans? I am doing the C25K plan...well I am on Day2 does that count?? lol....Also, I will join nerd status as well because I am always excited when I reach a milemarker with spark points!!!

    Thanks for the hi five! Don't worry, the rate you're going, you'll be out of the 160's in no time!!
    When is your next weigh in? Have you measured yourself yet? Sometimes that will help you when the scale is being stubborn!!!
