Time to get serious...

Hi, I'm Amanda.

Back in 2007, I started my journey on spark and in about 6 months managed to lose 26 pounds. Over the course of the next two years I regained 32 pounds. How could that happen, you may ask. I stopped making myself a priority. My husband and I bought a house, we got a dog and working out and being healthy fell by the wayside.

Hi, I'm Amanda.

Back in 2007, I started my journey on spark and in about 6 months managed to lose 26 pounds. Over the course of the next two years I regained 32 pounds. How could that happen, you may ask. I stopped making myself a priority. My husband and I bought a house, we got a dog and working out and being healthy fell by the wayside.

November 2009 came and I did it again. Lost the weight. Got to a new adult low of 144.3 lbs and then proceeded to regain it all.

I can give you plenty of excuses - the biggest of which was that I found out I had severe uterine fibroids and adenomyosis and had to have a hysterectomy at the age of 33. Considering that was one year ago though and I am still 3 lbs heavier than when I went in for surgery, tells you that there are bigger problems yet to be fixed.

So, here I am again. Ready to recommit and take my life back. I'm back to running (3 miles, woohoo!) and biking with my dad (25 miles, woohoo!).

Stay tuned as I figure out how to live my life for the best me possible.

Keep Moving Forward
Quote by Walt Disney the ending of Meet the Robinsons:

"Around Here, However, We Don't Look Backwards Very Long,
We Keep Moving Forward, Opening Up New Doors And
Doing New Things, Because We're Curious...
And Curiosity Keeps Leading Us Down New Paths."

White Tigers Let's use the past to learn but keep looking forward towards a healthy future. emoticon
