My Goals:
1. Strengthen my muscles and feel more energized each morning
2. My longterm goal is to make exercise and eating enjoyable and mindfully under control. I hate stressful binges. I want to be able to turn it around now, get back on track every moment.
3. Gain control by Being Nutritionally Balanced, and physically fit is how I plan to reach my dreams.

My Program:
Make time for morning fitness. Spend just 5-10 minutes doing pushups, lunges, jumping jacks and stretches before I shower. I will check off my nutrition and fitness tracker daily, and make my food portions smaller.

Personal Information:
I just lost 90 pounds in 10 months, and have struggled but maintained for 24 months now.
So, now I'm planning to forage forward, getting fit to 112 pounds.

"running-a-muck" binging, instead of learning from our mistakes, and just moving on? (I�m raising my hand, too.)
Spark People are always there at 1:00am+ to understand and encourage me during those desperate and hungry moments. Spark people is a reliable source which offers current information and 24 hour support. I thank you ALL for visiting my page and for your constant encouragement !!! :)

Other Information:
I never really believed I could lose weight. Everytime I tried before, I ended up gaining it back plus 10 more. Besides, my Doctor said I would never be able to hike ever again, having chronic tendonitis.He said there's nothing that could be done to help and that I would have pain for the rest of my life. I felt hopeless, vulnerable and depressed.
The Diet Center and Spark People were my last hope, and had literally saved my life.

"Beautiful Woman Award! Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the wall of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out"
