I was married at 130 pounds in June 2010 and had gained 45 pounds by December 2013. Oh no!

My initial goal was to be under 150 pounds before our 4th anniversary (June 2014) - I totally crushed that goal, weighing in at 143!!! It feels wonderful to finally be back on track! My final goal is to run an official 5k and maintain my weight between 125-130. I've ran MORE than 5k several times (YIPPEE!) on the treadmill and I've been consistently weighing in around 130. I'm pretty happy where I'm at. If the last five lbs come off great, if not, I know I'm healthy and this is where my body is comfortable.

It is worth mentioning that I'm under 5 feet tall. One thing I've learned is that I cannot (and should not) live the same lifestyle as my (mostly) male friends. They need more calories to maintain their larger, taller frame. Same goes for anyone actually... everyone has their own nutritional and exercising needs/guidelines/goals. Don't compare yourself to anyone else! We are all unique, and that's wonderful!

I've used SparkPeople before, and it's super helpful. Friends welcome!
