We CAN do this! Yes we can! If we can't do it nobody can!

Never give up!!

Hopefully SparkPeople and my Lord can help me get healthy.

SparkPeople really has been fantastic for me. My friends and family have no idea that I'm a member and have never even heard of SP. Why have I never mentioned it to them? Because "You don't need to lose weight. You are great right now" etc etc. That's what my friends and family say in regards to my journey.. But what they don't understand is that I'm not on a quest to lose weight. I want to lose ...

SparkPeople really has been fantastic for me. My friends and family have no idea that I'm a member and have never even heard of SP. Why have I never mentioned it to them? Because "You don't need to lose weight. You are great right now" etc etc. That's what my friends and family say in regards to my journey.. But what they don't understand is that I'm not on a quest to lose weight. I want to lose inches on my waist/ hips, I want to tone up and I want to adopt a healthy lifestyle so I can live longer. That might not mean much when you're only 21 but it's true.

Therefore some of my goals include: eating more fruits/veggies. Drinking 8 glasses of water a day. Gotta get into the swing of strength training. I like to run but I'd LOVE to actually be able to call myself a runner. One day I'd love to be able to run a marathon (First got figure out HOW to achieve that!)

My thoughts, in regards to myself are often, what I call "poisonous". 99% of the time, thoughts reflecting myself are negative.Therefore not only am I on a quest to change my outward appearance with the help of SparkPeople, I am also hoping to change the inside and hopefully get rid of these "poisonous" thoughts.

My Goals:
Ongoing goals:

1)Drink 8 glasses of water daily
2)Minimum of 60 minutes of exercise a day
3)Eat 3 fruits/veggies every day
4)ST every day

Long term:
1)To feel better about myself and have better self-esteem (and be less critical-I am my own best friend. With only 1 body and 1 chance to treat it right, I need to do this now. It will not get any easier as I get older!)
2)To not care what anybody says about my body- I am the most important one.

My Program:
Throughout my time at Spark my program has evolved in many ways.

Nutrition
1) Most days eating 3 meals a day. Still working on getting closer to my calorie range.

2) Still need to improve on my protein intake. Usually only get about 1/2 of what I should be getting.

Fitness
1) Exercise is my drug. No matter what- 60 minutes a day minimum.

2)Need to get back into strength training.





Other Information:
Hobbies: Singing, Reading, Writting, Horseback Riding

Thanks so much for the kind words on my blog!! It really just reminded me how much harder we are on ourselves. I really had not 1 negative thing to say about any of her photos. She has lost about 100 pounds already... and I support her in wanting to lose her last chunk of weight. With that said, I really do think she looks great and has come such a long way... and if she never lost another pound I think she's fabulous! But I know she wants to lose more and I support her in that.

But when I had someone tell me that exact same thing "You have come a long way, and even if you don't lose another pound you have accomplished so much" I had like a little panic attack. I was thinking no no, I am proud of what I've accomplished but I need to lose the rest of this stinkin' weight LOL! It's just so strange what we can see and feel for other people and yet we can't always give ourselves permission to see the same things for ourselves.

The self esteem thing is a long winding road. I went from having none, to having probably a little more than people think I should have LOL. But then I have days where I am just down in the dumps and get so down about how far I still have to go. It's hard to find a balance.

Learning to love ourselves can be hard, but I know that we can do it and we can get stronger and stronger. emoticon

I was accepted and started my bachelor's degree in IT engineering. And the surgery was nothing bad just breast reduction.
thanks for asking
