Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
Hi I''m Mary. I got to my goal weight, then fell off the Sparkpeople support. I''ve gained back 10 pounds, and I am determined to get it off...and keep it off!
I see myself as someone who can accomplish anything I set my mind to do. The weight crept up over a few years until I couldn''t wear any of my clothes. And I was determined not to buy any sizes bigger than a 12. (of course, there are big size 12''s and small size 12''s, but that''s another story).
I will be happy to fit back into small size 8''s and big size 6''s soon. That''s just about right for me at 5''10" tall.
I am also interested in staying healthy and fit. I am a breast cancer survivor (21 years now), and I know that diet and exercise play a key role in staying cancer-free.
When I get at my maintenance zone, I will continue to SPARK so that I don''t slip back. This process is perfect to keep me aware of health and fitness. It is so full of information and motivation. I am inspired by those who are losing excess weight, while gaining confidence and friends in the process.
MY FITNESS GOALS: Based on my height of 5'10", I WILL:
Eat healthfully, with appropriate portions
Maintain size 6-8 c
My hip measurement will never be larger than 37", and my waist 26" , my upper thighs at 21"
Weigh 130 lbs fully clothed at my next annual physical
Keep my blood pressure below 120-80, and my cholestrol under 170
I will be able to run 10k without stopping at 8.5 minute miles
LIFE GOALS ARE CAPTURED IN PICTURES IN PHOTO GALLERY
Cardio 1 hour 5xweek

Weights 5 days a week, alternating upper and lower body

I use the Nike Plus gizmo that tracks miles, pace, calories, etc. and coordinates challenges with other Nike users. VERY MOTIVATING!
It keeps me thinking about walking or running, just to stay ahead of chosen challengers!
Hypnotism (really works!) to control appetite and portions , and keep up enthusiasm for working out
Track all food, fitness, and drink on Sparkpeople daily.

Executive for an insurance company, travel frequently across U.S.

I want to use this website to go beyond just physical fitness. This is a great place to plan for my future...which wouldn't be possible without good health.
I know that I have the ability to achieve the object of my definite purpose in life; therefore, I demand of myself persistent, continuous action toward its attainment, and I here and now promise to render such action.
I realize the dominating thoughts of my mind will eventually reproduce themselves in outward, physical action, and gradually transform themselves into physical reality; therefore, I will concentrate my thought daily upon the task of thinking of the person I intend to become, thereby creating in my mind a clear mental picture.
I know that any desire that I persistently hold in my mind will eventually seek expression through some practical means of attaining the object back of it; therefore I will devote ten minutes daily to demanding of myself the development of self-con
