Strategically taken to convince myself that I "carry the extra weight well."





The dreaded side view... not so strategic...not so convincing








I have 4 pics in my gallery

Starting out, again.

I'm a repeat offender, losing weight a few times, but it has been several years since I was able to lose more than 10 pounds and keep it off for any length of time. This time is totally different. I have been making healthy choices rather than "dieting."

Member Since: 7/26/2009

SparkPoints: 25,388

Fitness Minutes: 11,823

My Goals:
Currently my goals include: Track food every day, Cook more meals at home, Get my body moving in some way every day, drink more water and drink less Diet Mt Dew.

6 week update: I have broken the Diet Mt Dew habit. I occasionally enjoy one, once a week or less.

5 month update: I am a water drinking machine! I do great at that! I haven't missed a day of tracking since I started up in March and I have been cooking at home much more. I do have a workout routine, but it isn't EVERYday, typically 4-5 times a week.


My Program:
My program is to track food, track exercise and celebrate healthy choices. I will not exclude foods or groups because they are "off-limits" I will chose to eat foods in moderation. Telling myself "you can't have that" does NOT work.

Personal Information:
I live in MN, we went from winter to summer very early! Spring and summer clothes are moving to the closet. I want fit into mine again. I refuse to buy any clothes in a bigger size.

Update: With the loss of 15# (YAY!) all of my summer clothes fit and a few are a bit too big. They fit better than they did last summer!

July update: I have almost an entirely new summer wardrobe. Many of my older clothes make me look frumpy. I won't be getting a new wardrobe every season and every size, but I have been acquiring pieces along the way. Helps me feel pretty.

Other Information:
I love to knit, too bad that isn't very active. Maybe if I knit really fast it would count as cardio? It does keep me from snacking though.

No, I didn't mean you specifically! I actually went through my spark friends page and removed a lot of people I added when I first joined. Some never added me back, others stopped posting& being active like.. right when I joined!

There are a few mutual friends I wonder& worry about because I don't hear from them anymore.. namely Punky& Frak. There are a few others, but I always just get bummed out when people disappear without a peep like that! I knew you were busy with babytimes, so I have a different kind of worry for you ;D

Sorry for wasting your time. I realized later on that my blog comment could have been offensive. I don't want to come across as pompous, thus I decided to leave the Spark for a while. Carry on. Glenn

Thanks for stopping by to comment! :D I miss hearing from you, but I know you are super busy with baby stuff. If that wasn't the case, I'd probably harass you :3

Yeah, I have to focus on the little things, because those are most important to keep you going from day to day. Looking at the big picture is too overwhelming sometimes! :-)
