This was around the end of Sept 2013... visiting Mesa Verde with my honey and my Mama





Workshop over the summer 2013. Fun! Haha





Dec. '11 - One of the pictures that motivates me. Notice the hand-over-the-belly technique?

"In Every Life We Have Some Trouble, When You Worry You Make It Double!"

Hello!

I have been using SparkPeople since January '12, and I lost 50lbs in the first 5 months! Since then I have maintained at about 168-172. I would like to finally make it to my goal weight of 140-150, which doesn't sound so far away, but is somehow really tough! The most important part of the last year is getting to know my body and how to live a healthy lifestyle while still enjoying some candy every now and then.

Hello!

I have been using SparkPeople since January '12, and I lost 50lbs in the first 5 months! Since then I have maintained at about 168-172. I would like to finally make it to my goal weight of 140-150, which doesn't sound so far away, but is somehow really tough! The most important part of the last year is getting to know my body and how to live a healthy lifestyle while still enjoying some candy every now and then.

Before joining SparkPeople, I didn't have a clear direction of where my career was heading. I got a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature and Writing from The Evergreen State College (GO GEODUCKS!) and eventually ended up working as an English instructor at the local community college!!


Hobbies... reading, knitting, decoupage, disc golf, sewing, bird-watching, hiking, swimming, adventuring, yoga... I dunno, crafting and adventuring! =)


I wanted to also add a history so that I can look back and remind myself how far I've gone... My whole life I have struggled with weight. The heaviest I have weighed was '07 when I was around 250 or maybe 260. I have never paid much attention to weight, really. I was in an abusive relationship and felt terrible about myself. After ending that and getting out on my own I lost quite a lot of weight. When put to my own devices I usually have a healthy lifestyle. I'd say when I worked at Chaco Canyon, I was probably around 190 or 200lbs. Then I got with my beau and started eating more of what he eats (not very healthy, i assure you) and started playing more video games and after a year and a half went back up to 220lbs! I hated seeing that number. So I decided to just do it and not look back. I am happy and I want to be able to express that physically! I want to be able to move!
(1/28/2012 - 220lbs)
(2/19/2012 - 209.6lbs! Progress!)
(3/10/2012 - 200.6lbs! Go under 200 Go under 200...)
(4/1/2012 - 190lbs! Hey hey hey!!)
(4/26/2012 - 180lbs! =) Yay!)
(5/12-12/12 - BIG plateau... hanging out around 175lbs)
(2/1/13- 169.8! And I'm back in the game!)
(12/10/13 - A gain... 185lbs. How embarrassing.)
(1/1/14 - I am officially restarting at 193.8. That is the official number. Uhg. Okay, chin up, just run forward, don't look back! Continue healthy habits!)
(1/15/14 - 190.0! Aaah... the scale is going the right direction again, lol)

JES' FRIDAY FOCUS

If the WHOLE world was blind..
How many people would YOU truly impress?
- - UNKNOWN - -


Always remember that it's what's on the inside that matters the MOST!! You can be the most attractive or fittest person in the entire room but good looks alone can never make up for an ugly soul or a cold hear!! Eventually we all get old, we all grow wrinkly & we all get gray - - Remember to nourish more than just your body on this journey to better health!! A good heart, a beautiful mind & a caring soul will NEVER go out of style!!!

Stay Positive, Stay Focused, Change IS Coming,

Jes

"Here's to US. Here's to ordering a salad when you really wanted a burger. Here's to making an ass out of yourself in combat cardio class. Here's to drinking more water than you thought was humanly possible. Here's to 5 more minutes on the elliptical. Here's to working out twice as much as your skinny friend. Here's to saying goodbye to the old you & falling in love with the new, improved, healthier you, the YOU that you really are, the YOU that you are becoming. Here's to looking in the mirror or jumping on the scale & seeing no changes BUT putting on your Nike's & hitting the gym anyways. Here's to carrots & shin splints & sweatshirts & perseverance & sore muscles & stinky socks & 7am Yoga classes & falling down & getting back up - - -And here's to doing it all over again tomorrow."

Never stop pushing for those BIG dreams, Friend!!
Better health & happiness is within your reach!
Never give up on YOU!! You're worth the fight!!!

Stay Positive, Change IS Coming,

Jes

"Beginning today, treat everyone you meet as if they are going to be dead by midnight. Extend to them ALL the care, kindness & understanding you can muster & do it with no thought of ANY reward. Your life will NEVER be the same again."

Milly,

Always remember that a few nice words or one thoughtful gesture can turn around someone's ENTIRE day!!! Every act of kindness, no matter how small, has a ripple effect - - Dare to be the reason someone smiles today:) :) :)

Hugs,

Jes
