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)

"There is INSIDE of YOU
ALL of the potential to be WHATEVER you WANT to be;
ALL of the ENERGY to do WHATEVER you WANT to do.
IMAGINE yourself as you would like to BE,
Doing what you WANT to do,
& each day, take ONE step towards your DREAM.
Though at times it may seem too difficult to continue,
HOLD on to your DREAM.
& one morning you WILL awake to FIND
That you ARE the person you DREAMED of,
DOING what you WANTED to do,
Simply because YOU had the COURAGE
To BELIEVE in YOUR potential
& to hold on to your DREAM."
- - Donna Levine - -


Gorgeous,

Believe in YOURSELF & know that you already have inside of you ALL that you need to become anything & everything you hope to be, want to be & dream of being!! You are stronger than ANY obstacle; You are capable of overcoming ANY hardship; & You are POWERFUL beyond measure!! Acknowledge YOUR potential & OWN it - - YOU are FABULOUS!!!

Stay Positive, Stay Focused, Change IS Coming,

Jes

Happy New Year my friend! Hope you are doing well! I kind of fell of the wagon for a little bit. Kind of back at my starting weight so it feels as if I am starting all over again. With it being the New Year it seems like a great time to be starting again. Definitely got to get back on track and work hard and lose some weight for my wedding!

Hey Em! Things have been crazy here. Life has been so full of stress for the last couple of months, I feel like im completely starting over :( But, I'm not giving up so that works for me :) A summer kayaking trip would be awesome! I know im planning on going to San Antonio sometime end of May, early June to meet my nephew who will be born around Easter :) and my mission trip is the first week in August. I am definitely in need of some timein a kayak though! Work took over my vacation this summer so I didn't get to do hardly any kayaking at all. :( I hope you are doing well too!!! Happy New Year friend!!! :)
