Hiking this Spring in the Jemez Mountains
Endless skies; NM 360 Scenic Route to Roswell
Hello! I am a very busy woman after having achieved my degree in 2010 and acquiring a job in my field. I love my job: I am a teacher :) Some days I don't have time to work out, however. It was a luxury when I was a student, I was so active: swimming, though I'm not the best swimmer, going to aerobics and pilates and stretch classes at the university gym some semesters, or having the leisure time to work out at home with DVDs, hiking most warm weekends AND walking miles a day to school and around campus. I ate healthier, too. I was super motivated, and felt GREAT! Now I have hypothyroidism, am 52 pounds overweight, and needing a brand new start on motivation and success! Spark set my goals for weight loss in November, and I am determined not to give up trying for that goal! I love what I've seen navigating the site.
My goals are no drinking soda, tracking my daily calories to keep in the know, and know when to change what I'm eating, and to lose up to 52 pounds, or wherever it may be that I feel HAPPY and HEALTHY :) To move and ENJOY it again :) To not let a size determine who I am on my journey to weight loss.
To meet my goals, I am tracking my daily calories, drinking more water, and working out at least 4 times a week, plus daily walks with my beautiful children, supportive man, and gorgeous rescue dog :)
I am from Albuquerque, New Mexico, in the South Valley. I am very happy living in the mountains :) I love to read, write, and watch movies. I also love to hike and take pics of the scenery, tho I'm by no means a photographer.
Favorite books: most by Pablo Neruda, The Secret Lives of People in Love, The Monsters of Templeton, Drowning Ruth, and way too many to name here!!
Movies I love: Cloud Atlas, Lord of the Rings and Hobbit, Avatar, Eat Pray Love, etc. etc. etc.
| current weight: 167.8

You may want to check out the SparkTeams section - I think there may be a team for those with hypothyroid issues (I thought I saw one, anyhow).......
Welcome and best wishes!
