**After previously surpassing my goal, I have gained back EVERY bit of weight I lost and more.

I'm working on taking better care of myself again. My goal is to be as healthy as I can. It's frustrating to be back at the larger size but I know that I can do better. I've got to manage stress better and make the commitment to consistently CHOOSE health over comfort.

I joined SparkPeople on March 1, 2010. While recovering from badly broken bones, tibia/fibula, I managed to become stronger, leaner, and healthier.

With hard work and with the help of Spark People, I lost over 20 pounds.

I can be stronger and leaner again!

Previous Goals:
1. Heal from broken leg enough to walk without crutches.
Achieved March 5, 2010

2. Gain strength and stamina to be able to walk a 25 min mile.
Achieved approx. March 10, 2010

3. Gain strength and stamina to be able to walk a 20 min mile.
Achieved March 24, 2010

4. Gain stength and stamina to be able to walk a 15 min mile.
Achieved 05/12/2010

My goals are to become stronger, leaner, and healthier through exercise, good nutrition, and sound health choices.

Personal Information:
I live in the Southern United States. I like to read, write, knit, crochet and I'm interested in photography and genealogy.

I'm married with one child.

I used to be a creative person but I think I tried to be more "normal." I'm working on bringing out that side of myself again.

Other Information:
Like everyone else, I'm a work-in-progress.
