You Can't Take the Sky From Me

I haven't updated this in a while so here goes. I started Spark People when I was approximately 175 pounds. I was 28 and recently divorced. I gained a lot of weight during my marriage due to being unhappy and depressed. Most of my time was spent either working two jobs or laying in bed hiding from the world.

I am 30 and I am down to 155 pounds. I am working one job, in therapy, and in great relationship with someone. I am making my life better but I still need to be healthier and ...

I am 30 and I am down to 155 pounds. I am working one job, in therapy, and in great relationship with someone. I am making my life better but I still need to be healthier and fitter. I still struggle with exercise and healthy eating. That's what I'm here for.

My Goals:
Even though my main goal is to lose weight I want also learn to like myself no matter what size I am.

I'd also love to do a mini-triathlon eventually.

Goal Weight 130
Run a 5k in 35 min

My Program:
I don't have set program just yet. I'm trying to just keep track of my calories and workout once or twice a week to start. I want to eventually work out 5 times a week but I know if I do put that pressure on myself I'll bail so I'm starting slow.

Personal Information:
Live in Michigan, want to move south one day.

girl it just feels like things just keep coming after me over and over and over and I just want to catch a break! the hardest part of my day is self acceptance and something I want to find peace with because I think it will really change things for me.

Great job not getting on the scale! One day at a time! I also am the queen of giving advice and being calm about something to someone else, but not applying that advice to me LOL. So I totally understand. I keep telling myself the scale will be there on Wednesday, and since I'm still "post binge" it is probably best to wait until Wednesday and hope for a minimal gain, eek!!

Hi! Thanks for the comment on my blog. I'm not saying I won't ever count calories or weigh food...but just not at the moment. I need to focus on healthy habits first. The interesting thing, is that I find myself making better food choices more often. When I make one healthy decision like working out, it snowballs into making other healthy decisions. I doubt that I will lose much weight over the next 2 weeks or so, but that's not my short term goal.

Hope you are doing well! Hey, whatever happened to moving to Georgia? It was GA, right?
