I need to get back on the wagon....and stay this time. I have done so well in the past.

Life got in the way.... but only because I let it.

I am in for the long haul this time.

Member Since: 5/25/2009

Fitness Minutes: 10,764

My Goals:
Average sized clothes!
Lower blood pressure!
Lower cholesterol!
Lower BMI!
Younger appearance!
More self esteem!
More confidence!
More energy!
A regular and challenging workout routine!
Better relationship with food!
Improve muscle tone and definition!

My Program:
I plan to show up a to the gym at least 4 times a week.
I plan to try a variety of exercises.

I plan to conquer the elliptical machine -- I did it before; I can do it again!

I plan to make permanent changes for my sake and the sake of my family.

Personal Information:
I teach fourth grade. I have been teaching for 25 years. I have a daughter, 18.
I was a dancer and a soccer player in junior high, and a varsity cheerleader in high school. I know what it is like to be in shape and at a healthy weight. I miss it.
I lost my parents in 2006 and 2008. They both went too soon...and both form complications associated with obesity. I don't want to think that I might follow in their footsteps. I lost my sister in 2020 to Metastatic Stage IV Breast Cancer. She was not even 45 years old.
I lost a lot of weight in the past, but I have gained a tremendous amount back.

Other Information:
From earlier: I spent 2010 making up for lost time. I lost 65 pounds over the course of a year and a half, and I continue to work on it. I have developed habits to take me through the rest of my life. Exercise is a reward now, not a punishment. Food and I have come to an understanding as well....
I am making goals for myself that a year ago I would have laughed at. NO MORE! I have seen what I am capable of....

    Hi! Thanks for adding me. I haven't been Sparking regularly due to my family's move to a new house. We are finally getting organized and I'm working on checking in regularly now. Hope you have a great week! emoticon
