Halfway Done!

I started my journey in October of 2013 and within the first year lost 80 pounds but have since had some health problems (arthritis and sciatica) that have derailed my exercise and eating plans and have since gained back ten pounds but I've managed to maintain a 70-pound loss, I'm halfway towards my goals, and working hard to get the rest of the way there. Working on healing, getting back in the game, and going all the way.

I started my journey in October of 2013 and within the first year lost 80 pounds but have since had some health problems (arthritis and sciatica) that have derailed my exercise and eating plans and have since gained back ten pounds but I've managed to maintain a 70-pound loss, I'm halfway towards my goals, and working hard to get the rest of the way there. Working on healing, getting back in the game, and going all the way.

The challenges I face having bipolar I disorder put me on disability and spiraled my life out of control for a few years, but I have made great improvements and am now heading back to work and feeling more stable and on good medication that keeps me from becoming manic or too desperately depressed. These changes in mood have often affected my weight and I'm working on finding a balance and living a healthy lifestyle. My resolutions this year are to make healthy choices and continue to lose weight as healthfully as possible.

My Goals:
To be consistent and motivated by living positive! Taking steps each day towards a healthy lifestyle and doing what I can when I can as my health allows until I can become fully healed from the sciatica and get back to a vigorous routine.

My Program:
I use a Fitbit to track my food and exercise. Right now I follow a meal plan of three meals and three snacks focusing on fiber and protein intake, and I take walks and practice therapeutic yoga to treat my back whenever possible. When my health improves I plan to increase the intensity of my workouts.

Personal Information:
I'm from Wisconsin. I am a Theravadan Buddhist. I have a 4-year-old son that is the centre of my world and a Pomeranian that accompanies me on all my winter walks.

Other Information:
I love coffee and tea, The Killers and Franz Ferdinand, reading, writing, and watching episodes of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.
