UPDATE: 9/17/11:
I totally stopped caring for awhile. But I'm back and on track and better than ever!! NOTHING is going to stop me now. I WILL be thin and healthy by next September. Just you watch! :-)

UPDATE: 1/25/10:
The holidays kind of knocked me off-track. It's taken me this long to get back on. I will be tracking my food faithfully yet again. Taking it one day at a time...

UPDATE: 9/23/09:
SparkPeople has really changed my life (and I'm sure this is only the beginning)!!! For the past 3 months, I have been logging on faithfully, nearly every day. I track my food and my fitness. Those 40 lbs. that seemed to be stuck to my buddy are just melting away! So far, I've lost over 15 of those lbs and I'm still going! I feel GREAT!

6/29/09:
Hi, I'm a new Mom and a fairly new Wife (been married under 2 years). I've always struggled with my weight and with my pregnancy, I packed on another 70 lbs. I've lost about 30 of those lbs. pretty naturally but the last 40 lbs. seems to be want to be here to stay.

I really need help. Being around to be able to run around after my son while he's young and watch him grow up is my biggest motivation.

It's time for a lifestyle change!!!

UPDATE: 9/17/11:
I'm not 100% sure what part the nutrition tracker will play in my new journey. But I do plan on at least using it as a guideline and putting my calories burned into the fitness tracker! :-)
UPDATE: 9/23/09:
The Nutrition Tracker is my very best friend! (LOL!) I use it everyday to make sure I don't go over my calories. But now, I'm also using to make sure that I get the right amount of nutrients into my diet on a daily basis. (Something I most definitely had never done before now.)

6/29/09:
Right now, I'm doing my best to be aware of what I put in my body. I'm starting out slowly. Trying to measure what I eat and realize how many calories go into my body. Keeping a food journal has caused me to start reading labels. Something I've never really done before!!!

    Happy Birthday to You!!

    Born today, August 24, you are likely to enjoy an early start at a career that, if pursued with dedication and patience, can prove quite enjoyable, lucrative and long-lasting -- though anyone born today risks having to top himself or herself after scoring one or two big successes while young. Everyone born today must guard against trying too hard to recapture the past; men born today are more susceptible to this, and must work harder than their female counterparts not to get caught up in the wonders and glories of the past. Women born on this date are far more pragmatic than their male counterparts and really know how to get things done.

    You may develop into someone whose ideas are rather different from the ideas of others, and you're likely to embrace notions, plans and ideologies that are uniquely your own -- but, in little time, they are likely to be embraced by others as well, though never by everyone.

    Today’s Virgo Horoscope: You're likely to receive a few compliments that have you thinking you're ready for something that may still be somewhat over your head.

    Hope your day is wonderful!

    Happy Birthday to You!!

    Born today (Aug. 24), you aren't much for warnings; that is, you prefer to use surprise as one of your most effective weapons, and you will go out of your way at times to see that your rivals, competitors and even co-workers and friends are unprepared for what you bring to them at work or at play. You always seem to have a new trick up your sleeve, and your reputation tells others that you are never unwilling to make a demonstration of it when given the opportunity. You mean business when you take action; you never do something halfway.

    Fortunately, you are also quite a fun-loving individual, and though you are fully committed to whatever you are doing in the moment, you can be sure that there is a great deal of fun to be had whenever you go about your business -- at least half the time, anyway.

    Today’s Virgo Horoscope: You can provide others with what they need, but you must also tend to your needs and desires -- perhaps even behind the scenes.

    Hope your day is wonderful!
