I'm not new to the weight loss scene. Throughout time I have had been in the military, had relationship changes, job changes, moves across the world and back, moves across the states, children, degrees, more job changes, homes to rent or buy, etc. My weight has fluctuated right along with those life changes. It happens right? It's okay if you pack on that freshman 15 only that was on top of the baby weight. It's okay if you lose some weight and then gain it again because of baby number 2 then life happens you can’t work out, convenience food is consumed because it is easier than cooking. You know how it goes. Life!

But like many of you that are on Spark, having a healthy lifestyle is important. It has to be a priority. Not only does it benefit yourself but it benefits everyone in your life and those around you, those total strangers as well. I’m sure I’m not the only one that watches the Biggest Loser for inspiration or reads many of the blogs here on Spark for that little bit of inspiration or that tangible thing in common that helps us get through the rough times. Most importantly I’m out here to help myself see that not only can I become a healthy, well-rounded person but I’m totally worth the journey too!

I’m a determined person. I research, analyze and plan an attack but I’m also a person that struggles with self-worthiness daily. I’m a person that will let life circumstances and emotion take over that determination until it squashes me into a speck of dust and I give up. But today, I’m taking a stand against those circumstances that emotion and I’m standing up for myself. I’m becoming that determined woman that can do everything and anything that she deems to do or be. My journey may not be perfect but it is a journey that I will be proud of and if by chance my journey helps you along the way than I have succeeded even more. Because we are totally worth every step in this journey of becoming a healthy individual!

    Hey There Christy!

    I have been following your training success on your other blog but since I'm not a member I cannot comment there - or perhaps I don't know how to do it? Anyhow, I think that doing a 70.3 is STILL a very commendable thing to do even though I know that you had your heart set on the full. You will get your day to do the full as well. I dream of completing a full Ironman someday but I know that with everything on my plate right now with the kids being so young & working full time & of course DH too it's not possible to find the hours in the day to do it...unless of course they could add perhaps another hour in the day LOL! Anyhow, I'm impressed with how far you've come, you are going to do great!

    Oh my new bike! I will post pics when I get home but it is a Giant 2011 Alair model. She is black with fuschia accents, I call her Mercedes! I am sooooo excited & hoping that I can actually do some quality training now that I finally have the proper equipment to do it! I am just disappointed that I didn't just buy the stinkin' bike sooner!

    Happy Training & can't wait to hear how your mock 70.3 goes this weekend!
