Ready for a transformation of a lifetime

I am recommitting to my weight loss. I have spent the last few years doing the yo-yo diet and now that I am 42 I feel I need to get serious and stick with it. I'm leaving my stats below to remind me I'm still doing better than I was on 10-07-08 but I still have a long way to go. I have gained almost everything back that I have been yo-yo-ing for the last few years.

SparkPoints: 3,347

Fitness Minutes: 1,727

My Goals:
I would love to fit into a good pair of jeans again. I would love to think about exercise before food all the time. I want to go running and be able to do it without having a heart attack or feel like Im not gonna catch my breath ever again. I want to live a long happy life with my husband.

My Program:
Right now the plan is to get into the routine of exercising daily and recording my food and activity. I think once I can see how all of those choices have impacted the way I feel it will be convincing enough to keep going and increasing exercise.

Personal Information:
My name is Melanie. I live in Lansing, IL. I have two adult kids. My 23year old daughter recently graduated from college and got married. My 21 year old son lives out in California and has a good job. He is going to become a father in May 2014 which will make me a first time grandma! I feel like it's my time to refocus on myself.

Other Information:
My favorite hobby is scrapbooking. Unfortunately it requires me to sit on my butt to do it. Since joining this site though I have started making a scrapbook of my weight loss journey and it has to include activity pics in it so it helps me get moving. Also it starts with the fat pics and will soon have the thinner pics to compare with.

Just checking on you - I'm like a bad penny - I keep turning up! emoticon

My husband told me the sweetest thing today, we were shopping at Target and he stopped to look at something and I didn't realize it so I waited up front by the checkout looking at the girls clothing and my son went back to get him. Hubby came up to be and said "You really have lost weight." - he had been scanning the crowd looking for me and passed over me three times then realized our daughter was standing next to this "lady" and he took a closer look and realized it was me. Is that so cool or what?
