I first began this journey in November of 2007 with grand plans to achieve my goals by February of 2008. It is now July and I have managed to gain back the 20 pounds I had lost. We are pursuing pregnancy even though I haven't lost weight because we just can't put our lives on hold any more waiting for me to make this happen. I want to do keep up sparking so that I can be losing weight while we try to conceive.

My goal is still to reach a weight under 200 pounds for the first time in over 8 years. I don't want to give up on myself. I am so much happier when I am active and achieving my goals. Even if its 2 pounds a month, I want to make this happen! So here we are...its July 10, 2008 and I want to begin again.

My Goals:
I want to lose weight and live a healthy life. I want to free the inner health nut that I KNOW is inside of me. I want to change my relationship with food. I pray that through this I might gain a body that is healthy enough to have a baby.

My Program:
I am so blessed to have Mike as my personal trainer and Sandi as a workout partner and encourager. My new program was tailored by them.

~45 min personalized strength training 3x per week.
~1400-1600 calories per day
~96oz water every day

Personal Information:
I'm a disciple of Christ Jesus my Lord and Savior. I love my husband of 6 1/2 years and most of the time I enjoy our 5 dogs :-) I am doing the last thing I ever thought I would do- volunteering in youth ministry at our church with my husband...and I love it! I am blessed with many wonderful friends and mentors. We are close with our family and praying that God would bless us with children of our own soon! We believe with all of our hearts that God will bless us with children someday. Our job in the mean time is to follow hard after Him and remain hopeful and confident that He will fulfill His promise in His time. Toward that end, I'm working on slimming down to be the healthy person I want to be.

Other Information:
Success consists of getting up just one more time than you fall.
