I started on sparkpeople with the hopes of getting healthy and getting into shape because my father had just had a small heart attack and had to have emergency quintuple bypass and he got diagnosed as a diabetic. I still think that was a great reason to start sparkpeople but now I want more.
Now I am on here for me because I want to change. Even though I wanted to change before, after my dad's surgery, my life was really put into perspective. Now, I don't just want to do it to prevent the issues he has had but also to just be able to walk in the store without my back hurting or be able to do something with my husband without having to stop and rest or without having to be basically dragged behind because I walk slower and am winded.

Now, if for some reason I needed to run I want to believe that I could do it. Now, I want to be motivating factor in people's lives. I want to show people that I can do and because I can do it they can do it too!

I want this most of all for me and my health. I want to be able to look back and say I did this and I am very proud of myself. I want to be happy with myself. I want to have it all!

I will have it all!

Member Since: 10/16/2010

Fitness Minutes: 7,253

My Goals:
I would love to be able to walk without my back hurting.

I would like to look better in clothes as well as with no clothes.

I would like to be motivating for others around me.

My Program:
My program is just low carb and portion control.

Along with that I also want to work out at least 10 minutes a day.

Personal Information:
My name is Jamie. I am always trying to find something else that I enjoy more. Right now I have found that I love being a housewife because it gives me the time without feeling stressed to clean the house, cook dinner, and also exercise.
I have recently made exercise a priority in my life. I wake up in the morning and I walk or dance for two hours, take a shower, and then I am ready for the day. I eat and blog and I am a band mom for my husband's band and so that's me.

Other Information:
I deal with anxiety/panic attacks and phobias. I have been working on those and have got them under control for the most part but there are times when I would rather stay home than be somewhere because I know it will be triggering. I have to work on it but I am a lot better than before.
