Greetings.

I've been overweight since I gained the so-called "Freshmen 15" in college fall of 1993. Sure, I gained the weight, but I honestly didn't consider myself overweight until years later (1999). I started off on the right track by joining a strength training class and went from a size 14 to a size 8. In 2000, I suffered from a severe knee injury and spent a year trying to make full recovery -- I had to quit the exercise class and gained the weight back. Since then, I've tried a variety of diets -- none of which have really worked. That's why I'm here... I want to lose the weight, gain muscle tone, and learn to eat healthy again. I need the motivation to stick with a diet / exercise plan.

Fitness Minutes: 26,226

My Goals:
I am who I am... Personality wise, this will never change. I want to be somebody... I want to step out of the shadows and "shine". Not only do I want to be healthier and look/feel great, I want to improve my confidence and boost my self-esteem. I want to be a role model to others proving that if I can do this, so can they!


My Program:
- Participating in my company's wellness program (ReGenerate).
- Tracking both my meals & exercise via SparkPeople.
- Use Google Fit to track steps / distance walked during the day.
- Exercise daily (anywhere from 10 - 90 minutes depending on my schedule for the day)
- Have variety when exercising (I do everything from pilates / yoga to low impact aerobics, 'Body Groove' (similar to Zumba), & strength training)



Personal Information:
My name is Stephanie A. Geyer (aka: wigirl74). Currently, I reside in the Milwaukee, WI area. I can be reached at: sageyerwi74@yahoo.com
