I started SparkPeople at about 185, climbed up to almost 210, and I have worked my way back to 185. Now I'm ready to tackle the last 40 pounds. I'm not really about the number on the scale, but it is indicative of a more healthy me. What I expect to happen along the way is an increase in the strength of my body, an increase in my self confidence, and less pain, tiredness, and misery. God is telling me that it's time to take charge of my health. If I wait much longer I will have waited too long and passed the point of no return.

Member Since: 5/6/2010

Fitness Minutes: 21,210

My Goals:
Goal 1 - to log food, get active, weigh in consistency for a week!
Goal 2 - to start using my SparkDiet and read The Spark
Goal 3 - to be fully committed to my program and start to lose weight
Goal 4 - get to Goal 2 and reset my goals!

My Program:
My program consists of eating more fresh foods and limiting dairy and gluten. I also plan to increase my daily activity. I love the Virtual Walk/Run/Bike Thru the US - it motivates me! I'm still in VA! I also like the Wii exercise programs.

Personal Information:
I'm from Corpus Christi, TX, lived and traveled all over, have 3 kids, a cat and a wonderful husband. I can't wait to get back to my wedding weight!

Other Information:
"If you went running when you first started thinking about it, you'd be back by now."

"Others aren't staring at you. They're thinking how they should be running, too."

"Someone who is busier than you is running right now."

"Our running shoes are really erasers. Every step erases a memory of a past failure. Every mile brings us closer to a clean slate. Each footstrike rubs away a word, a look, or an event that led us to believe that success was beyond our grasp." John Bingham

"The miracle isn't that I finished. The miracle is that I had the courage to start." John Bingham

    "Three of the most powerful words in the English language are 'I AM RESPONSIBLE.' It's tough to do, but when the day comes that you can say those words, believe them, and mean them, it will be the most liberating moment of your life. Taking responsibility for all of your results, for better or for worse, is taking back your power to create results in your life."
    -Tom Venuto
