Falling into the 2014 Fall 5% challenge with Panther Pride

My name is Jennie and I been a part of Sparkpeople since May and have found it incredibly supportive and helpful. I joined after gaining about 40 lbs over a year as a consequence of untreated depression and was finally motivated to get physically and mentally healthier and am so happy I was.

I am so excited to be a part of my first BLC CHALLENGE and can't wait to start as a PANTHER!

I am so excited to be a part of my first BLC CHALLENGE and can't wait to start as a PANTHER!

I loved being a part of the 2014 5% Summer challenge and it helped me so much - now I can't wait for the Fall challenge to start as I have been slacking a bit since the summer challenge ended.

My goals for the fall challenge are to meet the 5% loss and to stick to my nutrition (count calories and portion control and eat mostly natural food) and exercise plans (Boot camp 3x/week, walk, run, strength lifting, Pilates and Jillian Michaels)

I am ready - have plenty of recipes and cleaned out my pantry and kitchen and have all my exercise gear!

GO PANTHERS!

My Goals:
My goals are to get healthier, eat better, lose weight and feel good about myself.

Short term goal - to reach 155lbs (or less) by 11/27/14 when we go to Toronto to celebrate my husband's great grandmothers 100th birthday! The last time I was there (3 years ago), I felt very unhealthy and want to go this time feeling good about myself. Let's see what I can do in 135 days.

Long term goal (hopefully by next summer): feel good enough to put on a bathing suit and go in a pool with my sons (COMPLETED this summer) and take more pictures of myself with my kids (still working on this).

My Program:
Eating much healthier and committing to exercise

Personal Information:
I am a 42 yo physician (currently not practicing) with a wonderful husband and two beautiful boys who I am now staying home to take care of. It has been a long, long time since I made myself and my health a priority and I am committed to it now!

Sorry you had car problems, glad you had a good attitude about it and enjoyed the walk home :-) I don't know if I could do 2 miles, I guess I could if I "had" to like that.

Sounds like you are enjoying your new technology/SPAT. I gave mine away after a bit, I was doing other things and not using it and until I disconnected it it was bugging me, LOL and once I did disconnect it it was laying there on my table making me feel guilty. I just keep a little Omron pedometer in my pocket now and try to impress it every now and then emoticon

The dinner planning site I'm using right now is www.gatheredtable.com
I'm not sure how much the monthly fee is, but I hear it's pretty reasonable. It gives me new ideas to use for dinners and I can import my own recipes and rearrange the menu if I don't like it.

I also like to look for recipes using http://www.myfridgefood.com/ to see what I can do with the groceries in my home right now.
