My Goals:
Highest weight - 308 pounds 4 years ago. I''m down over 100 pounds at this point. I want to Lose 50 more pounds; get into better shape;eat to live. Most importantly I want to break through the 200 pound barrier.

(I broke through the 200 pound barrier and now I''m headed to my goal. About 30 pounds left to go.)

My Program:
I walk an average of 3m a day with my dog and spend at least an hour at the gym 4 days a week doing cardio and weight training. I''ve been doing the gym thing for the last two years and it has drastically reduced my depression and i know if i wasn''t doing it i''d be a lot flabbier than i am...LOL I recently taught myself how to run - and it has become a HUGE part of my life! Who would ever believe that I would like running?!! I strive for at least 5k per day - more if I''m running outside. It has definitely helped with changing my body shape. I''ll never quit - it''s the best thing I''ve ever done for myself.

Since my original post of my program I have become a runner - YES ME! A RUNNER! I average 5k 6 days a week. I want to start entering some races in the fall - I just can''t believe I''m actually doing it - I have always envied people who can run and now I''m one of them!

Personal Information:
I live in London, Ontario and I work in Sales. I recently started driving special ed kids to school - and I LOVE it!

Other Information:
Love to read, golf and garden - play with my grandchildren and my HUGE yellow Labrador Retriever - Dexter.

Hi- Welcome to the EE team! Great place for support, and encouragement, and a place to vent if you need to!

2) I will find the right people who can help me.

3) I will look for an answer in every problem.

4) I will give up trying and simply do.

5) I will make it okay to be wrong and make mistakes.

6) I will create my own good luck.

7) I will not be afraid to lose before I win.

8 ) I will do it now!

9) I will be who I am and become what I was meant to be.

Check out the main page of the EE team- there are “stickied” topics you may be interested in to get involved- a buddy thread, a place to introduce yourself, weigh-in challenge, a birthday post. ¸.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*¨(¸.•´ (¸.•´ (¸.•´¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥. ¸.•♥´ .•´¨¨ ¸´¸.•´¸.•*¨)¸¸.•´ ..•-~'¸.•*¨)
Spark has a lot of great tools, and you will learn which ones work best for you. The best tools are the people tho, always willing to lend a hand, an ear, or a shoulder. I’ve been here for over a year now, and I still am overwhelmed, every day, by the kindness and goodness of others on this team!! That has made a world of difference for me. I hope you have the same success! ¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥.*.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*
