Hello everyone, I am brand new to the Spark Community and was recommended by a fellow bride from BestDestinationWedding.com. Which is why I have to lose some weight. I amgetting married June 14, 2008 in Jamaica and would love to feel 100% confident in front of my family and friends on my big day.

I use to play college basketball and was in the best shape of my life, but after having to retire my jersey after my 2nd year of school to get 2 jobs, I began to get very out of shape. I weigh alot and most of it comes from the muscle that I built up during my entire career of playing ball. I want to get back healthy so that I can feel absolutely better about myself. Don't get me wrong, I don't want to be skinny...but I do want to be comfortable in my own skin (w. a flat stomach of course.)

If there are any women out there like me, I am looking for your support and advice and hopefully we can get through this thing together.

My Goals:
My weight goal is to ultimately get to 160 lbs. I am not sure if I want to get that small by June, but that would be nice. I already bought my dress and would hate to have to get a new one...even though I would love to lose weight.

My main thing is to lose inches. I gain weight very easily, but I loose it very easy as well (with a little hard work.) I don't enjoy running as much as I should but it is the Sure Fire way to lose weight, I just can't get the motivation. I have kickboxing on Tues Thurs and Sat, so my goal is at least if I am not working to make my appearance known on those days, and if I can't to atleast run around the neighborhood once no matter how tired I am.

My Program:
I am going to start working out/cardio for at least 3 times a week. I will try to eat more meals and drink more water. I try to do 3 sets of 20 curnches when I wake up and right before I go to sleep. On occasion if I am in front of the tv I do stationary lunges, lifting 8lb dumbells, or crunches on the big ball.

Personal Information:
I am originally from St. Louis, MO but moved to Suth Bend, Indiana for my job. I graduated from the University of Missouri Rolla in Dec 2005 with a degree in Industrial Engineering. I live with my fiance' and we have been dating since F3b 15, 2005 and engaged since Feb 21, 2007. We are getting married June 14, 2008 at the Riu Hotel in Ocho Rios, Jamaica.

    The tragedy in life doesn't lie in not reaching your goal. The tragedy lies in having no goal to reach && Victory belongs to the most persevering!
