Going for Half

Join me on an extraordinary journey to lose 126 pounds (half my current weight). I am so tired of being tired and sluggish all day, everyday and have finally set some very BIG goals for myself.

My Goals:
I have set several goals for the next year for myself. Here they are:
1. I will eat healthy (without giving up things I can't live without forever)

2. Learn to be a runner (I've always wanted to run, but have always been too overweight)

3. Run a 5k (then I want to do a mini marathon, then a full marathon-but I'm leaving it at a 5k for now)

4. Lose 126 lbs. (that is exactly half of my current weight)

My Program:
I am using Spark People to figure out the nutritional content of my food, using a great app called "My Net Diary" to track the food I eat (I find I am much more accurate with my food tracking when I can enter it at each meal, I tend to forget some foods when I have to wait until I can get back to my computer), I love the motivation and inspiration I find on the SP forums so I spend about an hour each day reading & making posts, and I am walking 2-3 miles at least 5 days a week.

Personal Information:
I am 46 years old, I live in Kentucky with my husband, Danny, and my two beautiful teenage daughters, Emily & Sarah. I have been overweight for as long as I can remember and have tried every diet and weightloss gimmick out there (with the exception of surgery). I AM the definition of insanity--I keep doing the same things over and over and hoping for a different result. I somehow have found the determination and am finally going to do it the RIGHT way. I am so glad I found Spark People and the support and inspiration available here.

Thanks for the friend add and welcome to Spark People. I've added you also. This is a fantastic site with wonderfully supportive members. If you ever need any extra encouragement feel free to message me. I'm on vacation right now so my only access is on my smartphone. I'll be checking in more when I get home.

Have a great week!

Cindy. emoticon emoticon emoticon
