Hi,

I'm Tracy and my husband and I have a 5 kids with ages 4, 12, 13, 14, & 16. They keep me busy...but apparently not quite busy enough to keep me from eating!!! LOL

I woke up in January and thought to myself "Enough is enough!" I want to be healthier. I want to have the physical ability to keep up with my busy kids. I want to be able to mount my horses from the ground and not worry about what will happen when my fat ass hits the ground if I fall!! :-D

So It's time for a change and the change is in me. My initial goal was to lose 25 pounds (goal met!!). Then I'd like to set a new goal for another 25 pounds. In a perfect world I'd like to lose 85 - 100 pounds. In the real world 50-60 pounds will be enough to make me feel healthier and fitter.

So wish me luck on my journey. I never thought this was a good thing...but I'm looking forward to being a LOSER!!! :-)

My Goals:
Mini Goal #1: 25 pounds
Mini Goal #2: 25 pounds
Mini Goal #3: 25 pounds
Mini Goal #4: 25 pounds

Total Goal: 100 Pounds


My Program:
Mostly I want to learn to eat appropriately and figure out how to not just apply it while I'm chasing goals...but for a life time.

During the spring, summer, and fall I am very active with my horses. Exercising them, riding them, stringing fences, mucking stalls, putting up hay, etc. But the winter is proving to be long and inactive this year. :-(

I finally started working out this winter. I started with a treadmill and have graduated to an elliptical and a stationary bike. What a difference it makes!!! :-)



Personal Information:
I am Tracy and my family and I live in northern NY. My husband and I will be celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary this fall. He is an amazing and supportive man.

We are foster parents and all of our children came to our families via adoption from foster care. My oldest 4 children came to us as school aged children and have have their own unique challenges. My youngest arrived in our hearts at a mere 3 days old and has been a joy and is a challenge in different ways. :-)

    Well,

    I made it to the gym this afternoon.... got an hour of cardio... tired as sh*t tonight! food choices not great today but I logged it - been lazy the last week...

    Today was a very crazy day - started with Riley puking all over house, testing the teachers are crazier than students... - one kid had a potty accident during testing, tested till 1:30 yep that's right 1:30 they started at 8:30 am!!! Then I got a wondeful snooty e-mail from AIG on fri morning telling me they needed me to compile this info by this evening - and basically they didn't care what I had to do they wanted the info - so I worked straight through my lunch which didn't hit the spot at all... finished up at about 3 with the info - saved it to a fie - I decided not to send it till tomorrow morning - they can sweat a bit! realized I didn't take a potty break all day long! As I was walking out of the building to leave - it started raining pretty darn hard I might add! and it was cold!! LMAO- good thing tomorrow is Wed!

    Hopefully I can do better this week with keeping it all together - funny thing is I have actually lost a couple pounds this last week too!

    Hope you're day was better than mine!! emoticon
