Fifty pounds ago, I would say to myself: I wish I were more athletic. I wish I could play volleyball, or hike or whatever it was that I wanted to do at the time. Then I made up my mind to become more athletic. I completed my first Triathlon this year! It's been a long journey. I still have 70 pounds to lose. I'm still working on my eating. The important thing is that I can do any athletic activity that I want to do now. I'm not on the sidelines wishing anymore. I'm here doing it.

My Program:
I'm working out 5 times a week. Strength training 4 days a week. At least 30 mins of cardio a day. Swim, Bike , Run at least once each week.

Personal Information:
Here are the things I've learned so far:
1. I like to exercise. I never thought that that would be something that I would ever say. I look forward to exercise. I actually crave exercise when I miss a day.

2. Eating healthy is a choice I make every time I eat. There is no magic formula, diet, or pill that can make that choice for me. I have to do it, I have to be disciplined, I have to want to make the right choice.

3. I have recognized that I associated having a good time with consuming food. These two things do not correlate to one another. I can do one without the other. I can also recognize when people around me make the same association. This is a big deal, and a huge step toward improving my relationship with food.

4. I am working through a lot of emotional baggage without the help of coping skills that are detrimental to my health i.e. cigarettes & food. This has helped me tremendously. I feel that this is the most important step.
