Third time's a charm..?

Started SP on 5/9/08, did it for about three months, then stopped for nine months.

Re-started SP on 5/8/09, did it for about two and a half months, then stopped for six months.

Re-starting SP again on 1/8/10. Just trying to keep at it for more than three months this time!

Cheers to being back again!

Member Since: 5/9/2008

Fitness Minutes: 2,842

My Goals:
My latest goal is to reach 140 lbs. by August 31st, 2010. That's 49 pounds in almost 8 months - doable. But there are always hiccups along the way so if things go awry then I'll set a new goal. No sweat this time!

My Program:
Just calories in -- calories out! My recommended calorie range is 1200-1550, and I try to stay on the low side of this most days so that I have a "cushion" for special occasions. I'm also going to try taking Alli - I got a one month supply and if it goes well then I'll probably continue taking it. Exercising is my least favorite part of the weight loss journey, so that is TBD for now (probably EA Sports Active and Wii Fit, might get a Pilates performer for muscle toning).

Personal Information:
I'm a life-long "Mainah" (except for a brief period of residence in NJ). I graduated from UMaine in 2006 with a B.A. in Psychology and in 2008 with an M.A. in Psychology. I moved to Fayetteville, Arkansas to finish my Ph.D. at the University of Arkansas, and should graduate in 2012.

Other Information:
Hmm, what else... Well, I'm married to a wonderful man named Matt. We have two cats that are like our children. We give them entirely too much attention and spoil them rotten. I work hard, but also know how to relax and enjoy life (maybe a little too much sometimes, judging by my enlarged body!). I think that about covers it! Feel free to message me or add me as a friend on SP!!
