December 31, 2010: I've been with Spark People for 8 months and I feel better then I have in a very long time. When I first started my journey I was an emotional eater and only worked out because I knew I should. Now I understand that food only cures hunger and I LOVE working out- it might just be my hobby.

I decided to join Spark because I was 30 years old and 210 pounds- I thought to myself- "Self this is what you have done to yourself in 30 years, what are the next 30 years going to be like?" That and also because I had just moved to Austin, TX and it seemed like everyone was in excellent shape. And I was just tired of being fat and miserable.

**2010 Accomplishments**
• Lost 23 pounds (210 to 187)
• Reduced BMI by 3.95 (36.04 to 32.09)
• Worked out 7888 minutes
• Went from a size 16 to size 12
• Pushed myself to go outside my comfort level
• Did not gain any weight during the holiday season
( I actually lost 7 pounds)

***2011 Goals***
• Reach goal weight of 150-155
• Get out of Obese BMI range (32.09) and get into a Healthy BMI range (under 24.9)
• Finish a 10K- DONE!!
• Earn at least 10,000 Spark Points
• Have at least 10,000 Fitness Minutes
• Wear a bikini and go out on the Lake with my friends
• Get rid of my gut (affectionately called Droopy)
• Incorporate running/jogging into workout program
• Go indoor Rock Climbing
• Jog 3 miles non stop

April 2010: Hello my name is Nikki and I am addicted to food. My entire life I have struggled with my weight and I'm tried of losing the battle. In the past 12 years I can say that I have lost and gained about 100 pounds and that's because I never do it the safe or healthy way.
I hit the big 3-0 this year and I told myself it's time to get healthy.
So welcome to my Sparktacular Journey!
