Starting over. Again. The BIG difference is I'm living in Korea and life's a little different over here. I've been on some kind of psuedo-holiday for most of my time here but I have known for the last couple months that I need to get back to my real life. Now at my highest weight on record since my weight loss. NOT OKAY! I'm here to get back in shape and lose the weight. Spark People always helps me out and I know what to do!
"Fighting!" ^^

Hi my name is Sara and I'm 23. In 2008 I lost a little over 88lbs! I went from a size 18/20 to a size 4 in a little under a year! It was an incredible transformation and I did it with SparkPeople.

2009 was a much rougher year for me but I managed to keep the weight off. The last 6-8 months or so I know I've been falling off the wagon and it's time to get back on. I'm over 20lbs over my ideal maintenance weight and I really do NOT want to let the weight come back on. Currently, I feel like I look awful in all the clothing that I love and some things are starting to feel really tight - NO BUENO!

I've decided to institute some goals and perspectives to re-energize my journey:

Current: 154
150 - buy a new yoga mat -DONE
147 - stay in my pajamas for a whole weekend day :P - DONE
144 - 10 lbs marker! New sports bra and water bottle
141 - New yoga DVD
139 - Celebrate 130's with cooking a new healthy recipe, also take a revitalizing mini-vacation
135 - Buy an exotic fruit and vegetable regardless of cost
134 - 20 lbs marker! massage
132 - New work-out outfit
130 - 1 new pair of jeans!
128 - New running shoes
125 - At least two new outfits!

Also, I have a lot of clothing that I need to get back into so when I get back into my favorite, comfy size 4's I'll have to go out with friends or something!

    Hey dude, how did today go?/going? I have no clue what time it is for you...!
    Yes, you can eat tofu in the paleo diet. I think I might actually start it properly in January, after the christmas rush. It's too difficult when you live with 3 boys (my boyfriend, his brother and our best friend) to keep on track. There are carbs EVERYWHERE! So I'm limiting myself at the moment and just making sure I really log in my food properly and go to the gym 4x a week.

    It's cool that we're on really similar goals at the moment. We're literally the same weight! Loving your stretching routine, it's one of the most important things to do and is pretty similar to mine after doing a run. You're looking really good, legs looking toned!!

    Anyway, glad to see you vlogging and speak soon!
