How many times have I tried to lose weight? Goodness only knows. And I've lost plenty. But I haven't kept it off...until now. This time will be different. This time I'll not only lose the weight but I'll keep it off, too. This is it!


$10 into a savings account for every week that I stay on program; this will go toward my new wardrobe;
Teapot with infuser and tea at -5 lbs...Done! March 8; chose to put equivalent funds into savings for new clothes ($30)
Mani/Pedi at -10 lbs
Yarn for a new spring scarf at -15 lbs
New Wii workout game at -20 lbs.
Hair cut and color at -30 lbs
Yarn for a knit tank at -40 lbs
New wardrobe at -50 lbs

Member Since: 8/11/2008

Fitness Minutes: 6,702

My Goals:
Taken from my Spring into Spring 12-Week Challenge post from the Vegetarian/Vegan Team board:

1. I will drink at least eight glasses of water per day.

2. I will track my food each day and will maintain a calorie intake at the lower end of my calorie range a minumum of five days per week, and will stay below the high end of my range seven days per week.

3. I will exercise daily, walking when weather permits. I will also use my Wii Fit Plus and workout DVDs on a daily basis; because I'm currently doing my own exercise challenge - using a different exercise DVD each day and then blogging about it here on SP - this is not an unreasonable goal. Piggybacking on this, I will look for opportunities to increase my activity level each day by: parking further away from entrances; walking around the inside perimeter of my building when I get up to use the restroom; and so on.

4. I will take time with my appearance each day, as this boosts my confidence and helps

My Program:
No program, just healthy, reasonable eating. SparkPeople's Nutrition Tracker makes that incredibly easy!

Personal Information:
My name is Shannon. I live in Ohio with my daughter, Lizzie, my dog, Bear, and my cat, CJ. I'm a knitter, gardener, and librarian. I love to cook and bake and try out new recipes, and wish there were maybe 48 more hours in each day so I could do all that I want.
