The power to make my dreams come true is within me.

Hi,I'm Amanda, a single 30-something gal living in New York City. I've had this extra weight on me for far too long, and I've been using it as an excuse for not achieving other dreams in my life. No more!

Throughout this journey, I've realized that I need help and motivation from others to help me be successful. I lost 24 pounds in 2009 but gained almost all of it back, I lost 29 pounds in 2012 but gained most of if back, and I lost 19 pounds in 2013 and gained it all back - I ...

Fitness Minutes: 15,815

My Goals:
* I will only weigh myself once a week.

My Program:
I am using the Nutrition Tracker and Fitness Tracker regularly.

I'm participating more in SparkTeams for support, inspiration and motivation.

I'm doing various exercise DVDs (kickboxing, cardio dance). I enjoy power walking to some energetic tunes. I also enjoy the occasional aerobic dance class. I love swimming when I can find a pool. I also love kayaking, but I sadly only do it about once a year - I want to increase that.

I enjoy restorative yoga and want to fit it in more.

I practice almost daily self myofascial release, it's amazing!

Personal Information:
I'm single, 38, no children, no pets now (though I love them and had a dog for several years). I live in New York City.

I love to travel. I'd like to be more physically fit so I can be more active on vacations.

I love all things Disney. I like to scrapbook. I love almost all kinds of music.

Other Information:

For every minute
you are angry, you lose
60 seconds
of Happiness
Don't say
"There's still time"
or
"Maybe next time"
Because there's also
the concept of
"It's Too Late

Never let the things you want
Make you forget

Hi...
I ran across this today..hope you enjoy it!!

~~~~~~~~OLD FOLKS ARE WORTH A FORTUNE~~~~~~~~

Old folks are worth a fortune: With silver hair, gold in their teeth, stones in their kidneys, lead in their feet and gas in their stomach. I have become alot more social with the passing of years; some might even call me a frivolous old gal. After all, I'm seeing five gentlemen every day.
As soon as I wake, Will Power helps me get out of bed. Then I go to see John. Then Charley Horse comes along, and when he is here, he takes alot of time and attention. When he leaves, Arthur Ritis shows up and stays the rest of day. (He doesn't like to stay in one place very long, so he takes me from joint to joint). After such a busy day, I'm tired and glad to go to bed--with Ben Gay. What a Life!
P.S. The preacher came to call the other day. He said that at my age, I should be thinking about the here-after. I told him I do - all at one time. No matter where I am - in the kitchen or down in the basement, I ask myself, "Now what am I here after?"

Have a Super Saturday!!
