Hi! My name is Heather. I am 36, I have been married to my husband John for going on 12 years now and we have a wonderful 6 year old little boy named Gibson. Of course he is the highlight of my life.

I have struggled with my weight since I was in college. It wasn't until 2009 that I took charge of my life. I lost a total of 65 pounds. It was an amazing feeling, the best I had felt in I don't know how long. I was confident and adventurous....two words I had never used to describe myself. SparkPeople was instrumental in my success. I kept my weight off for a year....and then it slowly started creeping back on. How disappointing. I felt like a failure.

Since then I have started and stopped many many times. I never make it past day 4. So this time, I set out with determination to beat this for good. I like to motivate others. It helps me stay motivated. In other words, I'm gonna stick my nose in your business....I hope you don't mind. :)

Lets do this and remember...

WE ALL ROCK!!!

Member Since: 7/24/2009

SparkPoints: 15,717

Fitness Minutes: 17,807

My Goals:
My SMART Long term goal:

Specific = lose weight
Measurable = 72 pounds
Achievable = No more than 2 pounds a week
Realistic = Absolutely, I've done it before
Timely = By February 2015

My short term goals:

-Increase my cardio to 30 minutes per day 5-7 days a week.
-Weigh in on Mondays.
-Be a happier overall person.

My Program:
Cardio = 21 minutes on my bike in 3 minute cycles.

-1st 2 minutes at my normal pace
-3rd minuted at at least 1 - 2 miles an hour faster than my normal pace.
-Do a core movement every 3 minutes. Only doing this up to the 12th minute, would like to do it all the way up through my entire workout.

-Every Sunday I add on 3 more minutes of cardio per day. I am working up to 30 minutes a day. When/if I hit a plateau I will start uping it again.

Personal Information:
I am from good old Indiana. In case you haven't heard, there's more than corn in Indiana. I have a beautiful baby boy who lights up my world. He is the reason I work so hard every single day.

Other Information:
When I wonder about what my life would be like if I was at my goal weight I imagine a strong and courageous woman who isn’t afraid to face the world. She laughs more. She smiles more. She rarely gets sick. She waves to people she doesn’t know. Her state of mind is a complete 180 degrees. She is energized and she feels like she could conquer or comfort the world. Her hair is shiny, her skin is supple. Her eyes glow with the joy of what life holds out to her. She has the power and the desire to reach out with both hands and take all that is precious from her heart and share it with the world. She has the ability to feel passion, to exude passion. Her mind reaches a clarity it has never had in all of its 36 (or 37…anyone know how old I am?) years. She is bold, she is beautiful, she is strong, she is ME!
