August 18, 2010: GOAL REACHED

I have made it to 150! that's the original goal I set for myself back in December, before I even knew SP existed.

I had considered trying for another 5-10 lbs, but NO. NO, I don't need to do that. I look GREAT like this! I will not succumb to the "there's no such thing as too rich or too thin" mindset. I've never believed that before, and I sure don't now. I'm wearing size 6's and 8's in pants, M's in shirts and dresses that either zip or ...
August 18, 2010: GOAL REACHED

I have made it to 150! that's the original goal I set for myself back in December, before I even knew SP existed.

I had considered trying for another 5-10 lbs, but NO. NO, I don't need to do that. I look GREAT like this! I will not succumb to the "there's no such thing as too rich or too thin" mindset. I've never believed that before, and I sure don't now. I'm wearing size 6's and 8's in pants, M's in shirts and dresses that either zip or pull-over, and 10-12 in shirts and dresses that button. (Boobs can only smoosh so far.) Those are numbers that once seemed utterly impossible to even contemplate. I can go into ANY STORE I WANT and try on clothes! (Not buy them, mind you, I'm poor as a churchmouse--but I can windowshop, baby, and I'm a PRO at that!)

There's a 5K run on the weekend of my college reunion (31 years!) in October. No charge to enter, just a free registration. If C25K keeps going well, I think I'm in. (Provided I can afford to make the trip--these days, even a trip to the store requires forethought.)

In a nutshell, I am: a full-time college student (BA in Health Care Administration, specialization in Public Administration), a mother, a newlywed, a Buddhist, a fan of cooking, a lover of books and music, a frustrated theatre major (who majored in English but loved theatre courses too), and someone who reinvents herself as required by this thing we call Life.

My Goals:
Achieving a healthy weight (whatever that may be, it might be more than some would say, might be less) and lifestyle are my two main purposes in using SparkPeople. Technically speaking, I've reached my weight goal of 150 this week--but that doesn't mean I'm finished! The point is, I'm learning healthier habits!

My Program:
I follow a low glycemic-index eating style, to keep myself from tipping into diabetes. I am predisposed thanks to family history, and am always on my guard.

"Beautiful Woman Award! Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the wall of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out"

Thanks for your comment on my Chicago blog. Yes, I think I have a picture of that Seurat. I don't think it's by itself anymore, but it was quite impressive. I liked how, from far away, it looked like a photograph, the lines were so clean.

You're looking great!! Wishing you continued success with your goals!
