Meet BERKCHIK,

She some cool background pics on her Spark Page and in reading her profile, her energy pops off of the page. She's lost 36 pounds so far and she doesn't see herself slowing down soon.

*******************************

Half-way DONE with 80 pounds!

Weight loss desired translates to about 80 pounds on a 5'4'' frame, with a goal of roughly 134 pounds...though I wouldn't begrudge a final weight of 129 ;-p --I really need some progress photos up. Stay tuned!

I'm a dog lover/owner, partner/spouse, psych and self-improvement addict, and a zero-waste/minimalist enthusiast working on simplifying and making more and buying less.

REWARDS...ARE THEY NECESSARY ?
I'm not doing this for the "rewards" below...they're not the incentive I thought they would be at first, instead they're things I have come to crave in order to better my journey, like the shoes and the heart rate monitor, and the vitamix... My journey is enhanced with these tools. And I'm grateful to be able to have them! As I lose weight and reach milestones, I am updating my rewards to match this criteria. I mean, maybe I will want a trip to New Zealand as a true reward, but somehow I think I'd be just as happy with a two-year membership to the Y. :)

Rewards (actual rewards may vary)
-5 = Haircut - DONE
-15 = Dine w/ Hubby @ Cafe Gratitude - DONE
-20 = Vitamix - DONE
-30 = Good Running Shoes - DONE (Skechers GoRun)
-35 = Heart Rate Monitor - DONE [Garmin 305]
-50 = Fit Bit Zip (or Trip w/ Hubby)
-60 = Tampa Visit (or Hoosier Visit)
-75 = UK trip (or other International Trip)

TOTAL LOSS -37.5

My Program:
1. Create an entire menu of staple meals that I love to eat and that are easy to make/prep in advance.

2. Pay attention to portions. Count calories. Measure/weigh food to become aware of how much I eat--NOT to restrict--but to encourage mindfulness.

3. Alternatives. Some foods are too hard not to overeat. I can eat them in moderation (occasionally) when out, but for home, I'm seeking alternatives to satisfy me that are not "diet" foods.

4. Be active daily. Usually a walk, for me and Jack (dog). When my breasts are smaller, I think I'd like to try running.

5. Seek support. I'm delighted to have found SP and hope to find others in the SF Bay area to be active with.

Other Information:
Ultimately, I'd like to be 80 pounds lighter than I am as of 4/24/12.
