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 - -

NEVER discourage ANYONE
who CONTINUALLY makes PROGRESS
no matter HOW slow.

- - PLATO - -


Always remember that a step in the RIGHT direction, no matter HOW small, is STILL a step in the RIGHT direction! Don't be discouraged by SLOW progress for progress is progress no matter it's speed! As long as you focus each day on getting better & on moving forward, you will continually be moving in the direction of CHANGE, in the direction of HOPE & in the direction of SUCCESS! Each day brings reason to CELEBRATE!!! Choose to LIVE in the MOMENT!!! Choose to APPRECIATE each & every step that brings you closer to the BIG goal! YOU are STRONG, you are CAPABLE & you are DOING this & THAT is ALL that matters!!!

Stay Positive,

Jes

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

are self imposed & chosen out of fear,
We would leap at once."
