I am a 36 year old mother of two (18 & almost 15). I joined SP in Aug 2010, with about 70lbs to lose. I lost almost 45 of that, then life struck... I am refocusing on myself again, because I am sick and tired of always feeling icky and worn out.

Update: 8 12 13 - I almost got to goal weight in June, but now life has dealt me a pretty big blow. Stress is maxed right now, and sleep and workouts are at a minimum (almost 0). I am still trying to track my food (some days are better than others) and I am watching the scale. I have had up to 7 pounds flux over the last 3 weeks or so, but all things considered, as long as it fluxes down too, I really am not worrying about it.

Update: 1 11 15 - Ugh. I have gained back more of the weight I worked so hard to lose. With a new job, my time is limited, but I am finding that the clothes I got rid of, vowing never to be that size again, I am now missing. I cannot afford to buy new clothes, so I have to stop the gaining and start the losing again. I am hoping that I can get back on the bandwagon, start putting my health first again, and get the weight back off.

My Goals:
Goal #1: lose 37 more lbs.

Goal #2: improve self esteem/minimize stress and depression.

Goal #3: look great in a bikini again.

My Program:
Update 4 30 13 - my eating is still about the same as below, but because I have started school full time, along with working full time, I am down to working out 2 days per week. I try to make 1 Zumba class and 1 weight workout each week, with the potential for a run on the weekends.

Started eating salads at lunch, instead of fast food or whatever the cafeteria had as the special. I started drinking green tea instead of soda and I carry a water bottle with me every day.

I don't eat many fried foods anymore, and fast food = salad or 6' Subway. I started eating more fresh veggies at home. I have started logging my food, keeping track of calories as well as fat/carb/protein ratios.

Cardio and weight training 5 days a week. This includes Zumba classes, Turbo Jam videos, a treadmill, free weights and a Pilates machine.

    "Many things are simply not going to happen with just one, or three, or even a dozen attempts. Yet anything becomes possible with enough persistence.
    Keep going, and allow your efforts to build upon one another. Keep going, and transform the disappointments into achievements.
    You have what it takes to keep going, because all it ever takes is just one more step forward.
    Keep going, and work your way steadily to the richest rewards you can imagine."
