Jessica's Healthy Journey

Twenty-something mama to the beautiful Michelle and wife to Michael. I'm here to lose weight, feel better about myself, and live a healthy and happy lifestyle!

Stats: 5'4, SW: 183 (04-26-2013)
Highest Weight: 191

Major goals for 2013: Run a 5k (and do it seriously, not just walking for fun like I've done in the past), see the 160's on the scale for the first time in a decade (DONE! 05-31-2013), and get out of size 14 pants (DONE!).

New Goals: Reach ...

New Goals: Reach 140's (DONE! Aug 2013), tone up my midsection, start a consistent workout regimen, stop being so critical of my body!

This isn't my first sparkpeople experience, but hopefully it's my most successful and long lasting! (As of today, it IS my most successful! Yay!)

----------update: August 2013------------
As of 8/16/2013 I'm down 35 lbs. I have been the same weight for two Friday weigh-ins, so I think this is officially my first plateau. I'm finding it hard to get an exercise routine started, but now that diet change alone isn't helping me drop more weight, I'm in need of a change :)

----------update: June 2013---------------
After 8 weeks of SP, I'm down 20 lbs and feeling great! Just started exercising in addition to eating better (always staying within my calorie range) and the weightloss is slowing down. Hopefully it's because I'm building muscle!

Fitness Minutes: 922

My Goals:
Overall, I want to lose 50 lbs, but for now I'd love to get down to a size 10, and lose that postpartum baby flab!

Also, run a 5k without stopping!

Mostly, I want to be comfortable in my own skin, live a healthy lifestyle, and be happy.

My Program:
So far, my eating plan is vegetarian, lowfat, and mindful. I'm trying to stop mindless eating, and cut out processed junk!

I track every calorie I eat! Every single calorie counts and it gets logged into my SP food tracker.

Walking, jogging, keeping track of my food, using my elliptical.

Personal Information:
I'm Jessica!

I'm a UC Davis graduate with a degree in sociology, and a stay at home mom.

I love my husband Michael. He is my best friend, and my support system. We have a daughter Michelle, who is the most amazing kid on this planet!

I have a flair for procrastination...and not to mention my awesome ability to come up with excuses! I have to hold myself accountable, because at the end of the day, I make my own choices.

Other Information:
I am a huge nerd! Doctor Who, Supernatural & Harry Potter make my world go round.

I am addicted to the written word. Reading is my favorite thing to do. Oh, and crazed Netflix marathons ;-)

I'm a self-taught crocheter, who is still learning the basics..but I'm quite proud of my stuff!
