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!

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 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!

Thanks for the blog comment! Yes, I agree, I don't know why we often treat ourselves the way we would never treat another person!

Thanks for posting to my blog. My DD is 16 going on 17.

Thanks for your feedback. It's nice to know we are not alone when the world seems to be falling down around our ears.

Yes, we have engaged a tutor for math and chemistry. And we are engaging a counselor so she can hash out some of the emotional issues that teen girls deal with.

I'm going to edit the blog to include a link to an article about ADD. Check back if you want. It is called "20 Things to Remember if you Love a Person with ADD"

XOXO
