Life Update October 2011

Tuesday, October 25, 2011

Here's an update on life, exercise and my weight from October 25, 2011! I'm hoping to find some of my old spark friends still active on the site, and/or make new friends!

I took progress pictures last month that are below. This is June 2010, April 2011 and September 2011. The difference from April 2011 to September 2011 is ONLY focusing on nutrition because I was exercise restricted at this point.

    Love your vLog, Laura! You look fantastic! I am so thrilled for you! School sounds SO chaotic- I cannot imagine keeping up on SP, blogging on The Odd Duck, and all the other things to do in a day! You are a rockstar!! Glad to see ya on here!

    P.S. I totalllly imagined you having a thick southern accent, LOL, so it's nice to be able to hear how you really sound. Maybe when I read your blogs now I will stop reading it in a southern accent in my head. bahaha!

    Loved your video blog. Glad your back. It's true, every now and then I will go through my friends and there are so many that are no longer active. Thanks for re-connecting and I hope you have a great and successful week.

    Laura! Soo soo glad to see your post and that you are doing well and getting back to being active after your injury. I'm still here, not doing much sparking with how hectic things get. Things have been crazy on my end as well, moved to Chicago for school (started a Psy.D. program so I will be here a while lol). But I am around as well, so if you ever want to chat or whatever. Hope school keeps you busy ;-) BTW, what would your master's be in if you went for it? Just wondering..internship processes are always hectic and stressful. Ok, no more tangents. So glad you are back emoticon

    It is great to see you are doing well and almost done with school! I haven't been doing well tracking/ check in on Sparkpeople myself, but I'm still trucking along. But you've got to tell me, have you've managed to get your eating under control and still stay consistent with exercise? I still struggle with this! I do really well eating within my calories or exercising consistently, but I still can't seem to manage both at the same time for long.

    Hello There! I was so encouraged by your video! Losing 30lbs is soo awesome and you look very healthy in your video! I'm really excited to begin and am happy to see other young women like me investing in themselves! I currently live in Ohio and just moved from Chicago with my husband to save money before traveling the world! I've decided that I can't travel and be active the way I want if I am as overweight/obese as I am so I'm putting in the grunt work and making it happen! I'd like to lose 60-70lbs and reach my BMI. So yeah, let's be friends!

    How did you navigate holidays, parties, vacations, etc? I just went to a wedding on Saturday and it was so difficult! haha Especially when other are eating whatever they want. emoticon
