3/9/2014 - I've moved twice since last logging on. I try and use the mobile app, clearly its not working.

How many times does someone need to think they have hit rock bottom before they change? I think I'm the ultimate slow learner. But learn, I will.

I plan on joining a gym this week/month and will work up to 1 hr of cardio 5-6 days per week and learn how to use weights to help me reach my goals.

I need you Fellow Sparkers. I will join the next BLC-25 or 26 I think it is. I will do everything I can to succeed at that challenge.

Here we go. I expect to lose weight. I don't expect to be a skinny minny. I expect to increase my stamina. I don't expect to run a marathon. I expect to wear a smaller size, it will still be in the plus sizes. All by the end of 2014.

2/22/13--Update

They just opened a gym 5 miles from my rural hone. It ain't ever getting closer than that so I prepaid a year and that got me 15 months for the price of 12. They have a recumbant eliptical and for now, that swimming will have to do until I drop 40 or 50 lbs.
I do believe I am committed.
Go me!

I saw the film Forks over Knives and have just not been the same since. I began two weeks ago eating a plant based diet-but then I realized cottage cheese, although not milk, was a cheese product! So i'd say the transition has been more gradual than sudden.

I'm committed to learning how to eat what looks gorgeous and I cannot wait. I am excited.

It's LEAP YEAR 2012 and I'm leaping into Fitness this month. It's been a long time but I have been working on health despite not blogging.

I still do Zumba twice a week. I've also sort of began working out during lunch (this is so hit and miss because of my schedule) but it is the goal.

I will post my measurements here. I took my measurements 4 years ago today and am sort of interested in the comparison. Probably not much has changed but we'll see.

I'm still working a pizza delivery job (thank you Dave Ramsey) until I become debt free. I get a free Pizza 3 days a week. I try to pull my salad together before they close down the salad bar but bc I'm out and about, sometimes I miss it.

I am still responbile for my choices. I will make it my goal to post weekly. I am definitely one of the SLOWESET LOSERS! But I haven't felt healthier in eons and I'm very happy with my progress and fitness level.

Hanging tough!~

Today is Oct 6, 2011.

I am down 28 lbs. I have slowed down, but not given up by any means. I am back to watching what I eat and eating more slowly and stopping when full. I still LOVE Zumba. :)

Today is August 8, 2011.

I have lost 24 #'s and I feel great. Only another 125 to go!!!!

Zumba is my friend...no, my love. I found a Groupon in May 2011 and I have only missed when medically necessary since then. I LOVE it. It's held in an old grange hall in a very rural area (15 min drive from me). They black out the windows and light it with LED string lights. It is totally a party! I love it. It motivated me to get a 2nd job to get out of debt. Combined with more working and more moving, I'm accelerating my weight loss.

August 6 I walked my first 5k with two of my best buds. We plan on beginning the C25K program this month for a 5K in October.

I also learned I love to golf...except for the walking, carrying your clubs part, lol.

It may just be time to bust out that kayak I won two years ago now...:)

Life is good. I can and will do this. I am stronger than I thought.

Today is sometime in March 2011:
Another year older, lol.

I have been reading the spark book (uh, I have a desire to read the Spark Book) and I am going to start some streaks. There have been too many goals and I haven't been able to do them all just yet so I've decided that creating three new habits or continuing and growing 1 a week is the way to go.

Goals:
Walk 30 minutes every day
Read the nutritional info on every bite before it goes in my mouth
Eat 3 home cooked meals 3 x week

Pack a lunch every day
Eat at least 2 fruits and 1 cup of salad a day or equivalent veggies
Eat appropriate portoins of food
Walk 30 min 5 days a week and add weight routine from SP

The plan is to do it in sequential order here...so when I eat at a level 4 for 7 days, then I add the additional goal of taking 25 minutes to eat. I will not ask myself to do this all at once. But rather, create new habits that change me over time. I can do this.

By June 30, 2011, have lost 40+ lbs.
My motivation includes hiking, biking and kyaking and playing!! (Oh, did I mention looking freakin' fantabulous?)

Progress:
Jan BLC Starting Weight: 347
FINALE WI:334.8
Apr BLC Starting Weight: 334.0

I get it girl. My mom is in dire need of a life makeover and she had WLS years ago and has gained a goodly amount back. I've done the "I'm afraid you're going to die before you're 60" speech, cried on the phone to her and such but in the end, it's all of our individual decision whether or not to take charge of our health. All we can do is make our plea and if it falls on deaf ears, unfortunately there's not much we can do other than be a good example and hope they follow suit.

So proud of you for your streak and keep up the great work! You've got this!
