My Journey to a Healthier Me!

Hello! My name is Heather and I just moved to Baltimore. I grew up in Wisconsin, so I still bleed Green & Gold! ;) My starting weight in July, 2004 was 240. I've been on SP since September, 2004 and I love the support from the coaches and people I've met on the message boards. I lost 80 pounds between July 2004 and July 2005, when a knee injury dampened my momentum.

I lost 80 pounds between July 2004 and July 2005, when a knee injury dampened my momentum.

I am an emotional eater, and a perfectionist. I struggle with a bad all-or-nothing mentality. I need to constantly remind myself that every little victory counts, and forgiving myself is critical for success in this journey.

My Goals:
To be happy, healthy, and feel good about myself both physically and mentally. I'm 5''10" and my journey began at 240 lbs in July, 2004. Since joining SP in September, I lost 80 lbs and as of July 1, 2005, I was 10 lbs away from my goal weight of 150-155 lbs. Stress & life has caused me to regain some of that weight, but I'm looking to get back on track and achieve my goals!

My Program:
Taking better care of myself and making my health a priority! Maintaining a sense of awareness about what I eat and how much.

Body Pump has changed my life! I attend class 2x/week, and I've noticed definite changes...especially in my leg strength. It has helped me in all other facets of my exercise program...running, hiking, biking!


Personal Information:
I'm 35 and originally from Wisconsin (Go Packers!). I'm currently living in Baltimore, MD.

Other Information:
I love the outdoors.
