I've been kinda discouraged lately as I haven't seen as much progress as I would like, but I found this quote on a fellow sparker's page, and it reminded me of what's important along this journey. I hope it can inspire others who read it here as well:

Update 3/24/09: So I figured out that my plateau was happening because I had absolutely no idea that I was eating an extra 300-400 calories a day... while Spark said that this was ok, I updated my goals and BAM! down goes my calorie range. I'm totally ready to see the inches fly off now!

Also, I am updating my goals because I am about as poor as I can be. So little rewards will be my pleasure.

Old goals:
Goal 1 - 190 lbs *MET* 7/25/08
*REWARD*- Haircut!!
Goal 2 - 175 lbs *MET* 10/22/08
*REWARD*- A new video game. :D
Goal 3 - 160 lbs *MET* 6/3/09
*REWARD*- New wardrobe!! (Yeah right... see updated goals)
Goal 4 -150 lbs!!
*REWARD*- Hopefully, a vacation!

New goals:
SW: 170
Goal 1 - 170 lbs *MET* 3/24/09
*REWARD* - A relaxing half-hour of listening to Brad play the guitar XD
Goal 2 - 165 lbs *MET* 4/25/09
*REWARD* - Underwear and bras, sexy ones! At least one of each. XD
Goal 3 - 160 lbs *MET* 6/3/09
*REWARD* - Dinner and a movie with my parents (hopefully, unless I'm in Philly by then, then an HRM if I have money)--I don't have money, so... if they still have my dress at DEB, I'm buying that!
Goal 4 - 155 lbs
*REWARD* - 2 new pairs of pants
Goal 5 - 150 lbs
*REWARD* - 2 new shirts
Goal 6 - 145 lbs ???
*REWARD* -Anything I want

Update 12/21/08: I am no longer obese. I didn't record the day this happened, but I realized it--I am now overweight!! That shouldn't be exciting, but it is--I am now at a BMI of about 28. So obviously something I did was good. :]

Having a bit of trouble now. Seem to have hit a plateau. I'm hoping adding in a bit of exercise will jump-start the losses again.

Here's to bikini season and looking good for it!

I just thought I'd give everyone a little bit of my life story here now... I'm just procrastinating on something else I have to do.

Hello, my name is Liz. I have been obese for the last 3 years, overweight for at least the last 8-10. And I'm only 18. I have had one heckuva time trying to lose weight before, but none of them were healthy, and most were induced by a mild depression.

I struggle with eating habits. I struggle more with exercise. I used to play soccer when I was little, and I continued playing it for about 7-8 years... but even while I was playing it, I gained weight. I loved soccer, and I eventually quit because A) I couldn't keep up with the rest of the players and B) nobody liked me. I do enjoy bowling now, but don't get to do it very often.

Surprisingly, I do love doing activities. I love walking, playing basketball, playing soccer, softball, and most other sports--the only stipulation is for it to be a non-competitive atmosphere. Which is impossible in America. Which is why I don't play.

I got involved in SparkPeople in July '08 after a recommendation by my beautiful roommate, RAINSTORMER. She is amazing. I hadn't been actively losing weight, but as always, just moping and doing nothing about it. Even after I had gained 10 pounds during my first year at college.

Things are going well so far (Aug '08-a little over one month later). I've lost a total of about 10 pounds, I'm more motivated to walk to do errands, I've got more energy, and I'm all-around more positive. I look forward to more positive results in the future, but that might be hard when I move back in to the dorms on the 26... wish me luck! I have a mandatory meal plan at my school and God knows they don't serve anything healthy... so we'll see how that goes.

So all in all, I'm on a mission to try to lose weight and preserve myself in order to have a long, happy, and healthy life, with hopefully a large family. :] Wish me luck!

I am a rock canyon.
I am a wall.
I am stone.
And I am DONE.

I'm a firm believer in the fact that everyone can do everything if given the proper amount of time and motivation.

Anything is possible.

Nothing is certain.

Never give up.

Never lose hope.

Always have faith.

And everything will come in time. :]

My Program:
Hey all! I'm following SparkPeople's calorie recommendations, so between 1200-1550 calories a day. I run 3x a week, usually a random cardio 1x a week, and strength training 2x a week, with a different focus every week.

Personal Information:
My name is Liz, and I'm from Ohio. I currently am a full-time student attending Hiram College, but when I'm not hitting the books, so to speak, I'm usually hanging out with friends. Feel free to e-mail me here at SparkPeople if you need anything at all!

Happy Birthday DONE GIRL

Those born on the Virgo-Libra cusp enjoy beauty and all things sensual. They may find themselves drawn to the arts, attractive people, and precious objects or wish to make themselves and their surroundings more pleasing to the eye. They have a great mind for details, and do a terrific job running a business or planning a large gathering because of this talent.
Virgo-Libra may be conflicted in some areas. While both signs Virgo and Libra are concerned with taste and aesthetics, they can lack in emotional or intuitive areas. They may find that what is pretty on the outside isn't so nice on the inside. Ultimately to be happy, they need to make the inside beautiful, too.
If they want to succeed, they should stop being so concerned with appearances. They should keep their search for beauty alive, and try to keep from becoming compulsive or cynical. They should not neglect their spirituality or get too caught up in materialism.
Virgo-Libra is responsible and they attempt to be as fair as possible. They are good team workers, but they can lack self-confidence. They are polite and open-minded, but they love a good debate. Kind and considerate, they rarely show their anger in public. Instead, they may use some subtle way to get even.
Virgo-Libra is health-conscious, which helps them take good care of themselves and their children. They like to exercise, though they do have a definite lazy streak. Think of the cat, stretched out in the sunny patch on the sofa: that is Virgo-Libra. Exercise is more appealing when they can socialize at the same time.
In love, those born on the Virgo-Libra cusp are romantic, devoted and playful. They pick up the important little details that delight their partner. They want a peaceful, harmonious relationship. They can see all sides of a situation which can make them very just, but can prove maddening to those around them at times.
They may have issues with being satisfied. No matter how good something is, they can still see flaws. If something is imperfect, they are inclined to get rid of it. Tiny flaws will eat at them until they can get them fixed.
Persons born on the cusp of Virgo-Libra are practical, hard working, diligent, meticulous, attractive, logical, charming, shy, modest, efficient, romantic, devoted and polite. They can also be unfair, aloof, easily influenced, self-indulgent, fussy, insecure, have hypochondriac tendencies and indecisive. The Cusp of Beauty sounds pleasant, but it can be a harsh taskmaster.
They love nature and their feet are firmly grounded. Their heads are still way up in the air, though. They may be artistic, or be able to design their home in the most aesthetic styles. They like science.
