RazWoman Revisited

Hi, I'm Rita. I've been a complete sweets freak since childhood and morbidly obese virtually all of my adult life. I really started packing on the pounds in sixth grade, when I changed schools and mom went back to work (food choice freedom + social anxiety = abuse of sweets).

I've been horrible at dieting and have even considered bypass surgery. It's difficult to put into words the disappointment of truly believing you could not get to 300 lbs after surpassing 200 lbs, then seeing ...
Hi, I'm Rita. I've been a complete sweets freak since childhood and morbidly obese virtually all of my adult life. I really started packing on the pounds in sixth grade, when I changed schools and mom went back to work (food choice freedom + social anxiety = abuse of sweets).

I've been horrible at dieting and have even considered bypass surgery. It's difficult to put into words the disappointment of truly believing you could not get to 300 lbs after surpassing 200 lbs, then seeing the scale register 319! The prospect of losing over half of my body weight has always been completely overwhelming and seemingly unachievable.

I've been on Spark a number of years and still struggle A LOT. Looking at my reports over time, I can see the longer I stay away from Spark, the more weight I put back on (I've now almost gained back all the weight I lost since joining). The research is true - logging your food helps to keep weight off even without any other changes. Perhaps I should make more use of the blogs and communities as well.

Fitness Minutes: 12,823

My Goals:
My main goal is to improve my health and ability to move pain-free: increase energy, increase stamina, and decrease aches/pains.

Here are my current goals to help get there:

* Log my daily food intake at least 4 times/week

* Circuit or Bodypump, at least 1x/week

* Ski machine, Zumba or other interval cardio 2x/week

* Expand my social network

* Get to the 210s by Christmas 2015

My Program:
FOOD: Generally,very low carb (I'm ultra-sensitive), moderate protein, high good fats diet with a whole foods focus.

EXERCISE DAILY: walk the dogs 2x/day ~ 2 miles total

Personal Information:
I'm a 40+, Philly girl relocated to Fresno, California over 9 years ago after a 6-year stop in Vegas.

I'm married to my high school sweetheart (over 20 years) and we share our lives with our rescue doggies, Vera and Pinky.

I work in Higher Ed and ended up in Fresno for the job opportunity. When the economy tanked a few years ago, my husband moved back to Vegas. We visit together as much as we can, but it's never enough. The stress of being apart adds to my struggle and i'd really like to get back there with him.
