"I make sure I eat well without depriving myself of the things that I love. Everything in moderation." --Kate Hudson

I have regained some weight, but not letting it get me down! I am picking up this journey at year four with as much enthusiasm as in year one and excited about all the new challenges and experiences to come! I started at 251 pounds and lost 91 pounds within my first 2 years, gained back 25 pounds within my 3rd year, and in my fourth year am looking to make it to 100 Pounds Lost! I have bipolar I disorder and a back injury which makes things a struggle sometimes, but I am seeing a chiropractor and am in physical therapy for my back and am making strides with that and with my bipolar disorder I am seeing improvements every day! Right now my depression is back under control after a long bout of severe depression that lasted about eight months and I am excited to move forward and accomplish new goals and revisit old milestones. I credit Sparkpeople for helping me to address my emotional eating and to tackle small goals each day and I have now set some practical, activity and nutrition goals that I am striving to meet and I am blogging about it daily so come join me! I'm not on an extreme diet and I don't have a hardcore exercise plan--I'm losing the weight with a healthy moderate eating plan and simple exercise and I'm willing to share everything I learn in my journey--and a lot of my experience with bipolar disorder and my progress towards being able to do more as I progress in physical therapy--with those that are looking for a plan that isn't overwhelming or restrictive.

Fitness Minutes: 52,844

My Goals:
To have fun! Staying motivated and doing what I can when I can. Practicing mindfulness and good nutritional habits while staying active. Drinking more water, try to get more than 4 cups a day! NO negative self talk! Lose 1/2 to 1 pound a week and exercise 5 days a week. Eat more fruits and vegetables, at least 3 servings/day.

Weekly Activity & Nutrition Goals:

Activity Minutes: 150
Calories Burned Through Exercise: 1500
Calories Consumed Weekly Limit: 12,600
Miles Walked: 21
Weight Goal: 0.5-1 lb a week


My Program:
I use my Fitbit and Sparkcoach together to help me achieve the best results. I track my food, fitness, and sleep, and I also have a MyHydrate bottle that tracks my water. My program is pretty simple, I basically count calories and eat in moderation, endeavour to be more active, stay hydrated, make healthy choices, and stay positive.



Personal Information:
I'm from Wisconsin. I'm a Buddhist. I have a wonderful son and fluffy Pomeranian and in my spare time I enjoy reading, writing, cooking, gardening, makeup, and every so often a British comedy.


Other Information:
I'm challenging myself to commit to my Fitbit & Spark for the next year so feel free to follow along with me as I will be blogging about it every day! I've set some activity & nutrition goals along with working on practical life skills and it's time to get to my goal range of 144-154!

    . . . that spiritual part of us we can’t see is way bigger than the physical part of us we can see. (My) life is living proof of my knowing we are spiritual beings having a physical experience. Pam Young
