My Goals:
My goals are as follows: to become the person I feel resides on the inside, on the outside, to lose 100 - 130 pounds, to becomse healthier, to be inspiration to and for others!

My Program:
At this time, I am doing the following to meet my long term goals: driniking at least 8 glasses of water, increasing fruits and veggies to 4 - 6 servings a day, drinking milk, taking a multi vitamin, exercising at least 30 mins 4x a day. I started out with 10 - 15 mins.

Personal Information:
I am originally from Canonsburg, Pa, a small town outside of Pittsburgh. It is the home of Sarris Candies. I have lived in the DC/MD areas for over 20 years. I have a wonderful supportive husband and two sons. caleb (23) Cameron (13) and a dog Caesar (8). I am a Sr. Director of Federal Health IT at a software development and professional services company. I am very family oriented and love spending time with my immediate family an sister and aunts. I don't like to exerise but have to change that mindset.

Other Information:
I am a very fun, lovng and family oriented person with great drive and determination in all areas of life. Weight loss has been a challenge for me for years. In 1999 I lost over 100 pounds, with diet and exercise alone, but put it back on over the years as life became much more busy. I have a huge extended family and friends who are very supportive. I have a great job with wonderful co-workers and am over all truly blessed! I just need to make this very necessary change to be more fit and healthy is like a dream to me.

Id like to invite you to join in my challenge to lose 10 pound in August. The goal is 10 pounds but really u do what u can. The decision to how much is ultimately up to you. i know some of us might be saying 10 pounds? WOW, that is too much! cant do it! But i am here to tell u i did it for 7 months straight, (lost 75 pounds) b4 i got sick with cancer and had dropped out for a yr and a half. if u stay within ur calories that are alotted and if u track everything that passes ur lips u can do it too. I was never one that stayed on a diet before, for more than 3 weeks at a time, and then I'd get discouraged and dropped off. i lost 75 pounds just doing calorie counting and tracking to make sure i never went over. i barely exercised ...i am handicapped and i cant do exercises in the conventional way but i flapped my arms while showering, and sitting did leg raises, went up and down my stairs whenever it struck me to do so. i did very minimal stuff. the idea was to keep moving and i did that. so i know with disipline, encouragement and motivation u can too.. so i invite u to come and join me on my 10 pound challenge! emoticon emoticon

Thank you for your comment on my page! You really made my day! I'm glad I can serve as an inspiration in spite of the fact that I'm not as far along as I wanted to be.
