She believed she could, so she did!

Member Since: 1/24/2010

Fitness Minutes: 5,155

My Goals:
-get to my goal by my wedding date!!!
-exercise 5x a week, strength train 2-3x per week
-learn to belly dance
-do my best at my job, and support my family

My Program:
I walk a lot! without a car, and getting around mostly by bus, it's definitely my best option since I don't have time to go to the gym.

Also, I enjoy cooking, and serving up healthy versions of my favorite foods.

Personal Information:
My weight's been a yo-yo over the years, but I've noticed a trend: I started at 280 lbs, lost down to 230, then bounced up to 260. Starting over from there I lost down to 220, but bounced back up to 240. When 240 lbs no longer felt good, I started again. I got down to 197 lbs, under 200lbs for the first time in nearly 15 years! That felt awesome!!! I bounced back up again, but this time I've topped out at 220. I am restarting with the knowledge that I am always headed in the right direction, and learning to maintain along the way. I didn't get to 280 lbs overnight, and I'm not gonna lose it that way. I'm in for the long haul.

Other Information:
The Optimist's Creed:
To be so strong that nothing can disturb my peace of mind. To talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person I meet. To make all my friends feel that there is something worthwhile in them. To look at the sunny side of everything and make my optimism come true. To think only of the best, to work only for the best, and to expect only the best. To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as I am about my own.
To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future. To wear a cheerful expression at all times and give a smile to every living creature I meet. To give so much time to improving myself that I have no time to criticize others. To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear, and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.
To think well of myself and to proclaim this fact to the world, not in loud words, but in great deeds.
To live in the faith that the whole world is o

    Hiya girlie,
    Hows life been treating you? Not too bad here.
    I am getting back into the swing of things after about a month of slacking and struggling. I feel like I am finally getting my foothold again. I gained 6 lbs back in May....so scary!
    So a part of my getting my butt back in line is checking in on my bestest spark gals...and you are one of them! I hope you are well and hang in there while your son is away....I am sure he will be missing you too.
