1/4/10 BLC 12 Camo Crew Extreme Team
I am so excited to be part of the new extreme team. I am going to track everything and push myself to be exactly who I want to be, even when the journey gets difficult. Watch my progress on my 2010 Progress Blog.

Hi, My name is Carrie and I am working hard to get fit! I am a married thirty something juggling life!

I live in Las Vegas with my husband. I work in the field of education and travel a lot for work!

I have been struggling with my weight since college. I went from active and fit in high school to fat and frumpy during those college years. I dug my way out of that hole after college and have been living a healthier lifestyle, but two years ago let my guard down again and 20 pounds slow layered themselves back on!

I am ready to have my hot bod back that I had on my wedding day about four years ago and I know that I can get there!

I am trying something new to be strategic about getting into shape and finding my goal weight! I am still trying to work out where my calories should be depending on my activity for the day!

I was grateful for the Calorie Calculation 101 article under the Healthy Lifestyle Food tab that Spark provided! It shed quite a bit of light on this!!! So....I am learning!

I am modifying my week to go from Tuesday to Monday to accommodate the 12 Week Challenge! It is great motivation for me and I am so excited to be part of it!

1452.6 BMI at 145 pounds

I am adding my Biggest Loser Challenge Tracking template to keep my progress in check!
