My Journey

I'm 23 years old and have been struggling with my weight for most of my life. I've tried diets in the past but they were never successful as I had no structure to them.

I joined Spark over 2 years ago. I stopped spark for over 5 months after getting derailed thanks to a vacation. Although I worked out a bit and kind of watched what I ate, I wasn't dedicated and I wasn't losing as much as I wanted to. Finally I got the motivation from my bf to come back and now I am more dedicated ...

I joined Spark over 2 years ago. I stopped spark for over 5 months after getting derailed thanks to a vacation. Although I worked out a bit and kind of watched what I ate, I wasn't dedicated and I wasn't losing as much as I wanted to. Finally I got the motivation from my bf to come back and now I am more dedicated than ever! I had to update my ticker to my new start and move it up 10lbs. It hurt, but it's not the end of the world.

Already I have lost weight since I rejoined. I have joined more spark teams and am hoping to make more friends. I know this time I need the support to keep me going. I need encouragement and someone to say "You can do this!". It's 30lbs. It's my life, my journey. It will be my success!

My new goal is to complete a 5k run either in June or if I'm not ready, in September. I'm really excited about this. I know I can do this if I stay dedicated and I think the run will help me to stay dedicated too. If I complete this I know I will be in extremely good shape at that time. This combined with my goal to lose weight before my sister's wedding (I'm the Maid of Honor!) will keep me glued to my goals. No derailing this time!

My Goals:
My primary goal is to lose weight and keep it off. I want to feel better about myself and at this weight my self-confidence is pretty low.
My hope is that I can do all of this by the summer so I can look and feel great in my bathing suits.
I also hope to run an entire 5k in June or Sept '09.

My Program:
My program is simple. I'm still eating foods I like but in moderation. I want to keep track every day of my calorie intake so that it is in the right range. I want to do cardio exercise 4-5 times a week and gradually increase my running time. I also want to maintain a strength training program. And lastly I am training for a 5k and am so excited!

Other Information:
My Rewards

160lbs: Nail Polish & a necklace (met 2009-03-16)
155lbs: Twilight Books (or any other books max 2)
150lbs: Pair of shoes from Aldo
145lbs: A trip for Dave and I to Canada's Wonderland (tickets for both and lunch)
140lbs: A hot new wardrobe! Toss all those XLs (and Ls?!)!!!

hey girl!

just added you cause i saw one of your goals is to run a 5K - i just ran one and have to say I couldn't have made a better call. It's always hard to stick to an eating plan and workouts but I just chose a race day and signed up and it totally committed me. I ran at least 5 days a week no fail and managed to drop a few lbs during my training - even though I was eating a ton! Good luck with everything, hope you end up running a 5K - there isn't a better feeling than crossing the finish line!
