Livin' Up to My Name
My name is Tracy. I plan on living up to my SP name to its fullest. I am now entering the phase of my journey which will last the longest, forever, maintainance. I am a little fearful, due to past experience. I have recently lost 123 pounds in 14 months, as of September 2012. I lost this weight before with WW. I was very focused, the biggest difference is I was only focussed on ONE goal and that was getting to my goal weight. This time I have found a new focus and it is on ME. I have ...
My name is Tracy. I plan on living up to my SP name to its fullest. I am now entering the phase of my journey which will last the longest, forever, maintainance. I am a little fearful, due to past experience. I have recently lost 123 pounds in 14 months, as of September 2012. I lost this weight before with WW. I was very focused, the biggest difference is I was only focussed on ONE goal and that was getting to my goal weight. This time I have found a new focus and it is on ME. I have learned that I like to have goals, but they don't all need to be weight related. I love to run and right now that is the focus of my goals. I am in the process of running virutally to Disney from Enfield, CT. I started in July of 2012 and my goal is to get there, all 1238 miles before January 2014, when I will run the Disney Half Marathon. I am a binge eater, stemming from stress, but have found that I am slowly but surely getting over that as well, since finding new tools to help me. I pick up other things to do or tell myself to walk away at the time. It really does work. My other goal, though hasn't been looked into too much yet, is I would love to be able to help people like my old self and help them find how fulfilling it is to seek a healthier lifestyle and how it effects other areas of their lives, not just on the scale. So, here I go entering the scary place called Maintainance and you know what, I make mistakes, bad choices and stumble along the way, but one thing I have learned along the way so far is that:

5% Fall Challenge
I am participating in the Fall 5% challenge in a crossroads of my journey. I am beginning maintenance but in the meantime may lose some more weight. In a perfect world I would love to weigh 155 but will be perfectly happy where I am at 163 too. So if I lose more in the process of maintaining great and if not that's fine too.
I exercise at least 60 minutes each day. I run four days a week and cross train with walking stretching and light weights.
I will continue to follow my SP tracking and watching my intakes of calories that way.
I will support my team by checking in several times a week on the boards and trying to keep up with as many blots as possible. I am excited to help everyone here!
My name is Tracy.
I am 39 years old.
I live in Connecticut, USA.
I am married to my high school sweetheart, have been for 17 years.
I have 3 AMAZING children, Kaleigh, 16, James, 12 and Samuel 3 years.
I love doing things with my family and this journey has actually changed my ways of thinking. I find myself wanting to do more things that involve moving over sitting. I do like to crochet, watching Big Brother and Biggest Loser. I LOVE to read and I love SP and my SF. I also am a huge bingo addict, but realized I love Zumba just as much!
