(Will continue with plan once the bambina is here...yay!)

So it seems like a good time for a page revamp!

My name is Jandell and I'm 37 years old. I've been overweight my entire life, but really really packed on the pounds during my late 20's early 30's. I'm 5'2" and my high weight was 334 pounds. Ouch!

I've dedicated myself to losing that weight and becoming fit and healthy. I'd like to have hit my goal weight by 40 and hopefully be enrolled in college and well on my way to leading a completely different lifestyle.

Since the last time I edited this page, I've lost some more weight and am currently at 103 pounds lost with about 97 to go. I'm super happy about that, but more importantly, I'm happy that my life is getting back on track and is much more under control. I know I can do this, I just have to keep working every day and not give up. Giving up is not an option!

My Goals:
Time to revamp my goal section. My new long-term goal for this year is to be under 200 by my birthday in August. This is a very ambitious goal, and in reality, may be more than I can achieve. But I'm shooting for it nonetheless. I have about 6 months to lose about 30 pounds. It sounds impossible, but I'm just going to break it down into manageable sections of 5 pounds per month. I can do that, now it's time to make it happen!

My Program:
Time to update my program as well. I'm still a Curves girl and go there about 4-5 times a week. In addition to that, I try to walk/jog two to three times a week for a half hour and also use the elliptical for two to three times each week for 20 to 30 minutes. One of my new goals is to dedicate time to strength training consistently instead of just whenever I think about it. I'm currently trying to keep my calories within about 1400-1500. Another new goal with my eating is to up my veggie intake considerably.

Personal Information:
My name is Jandell and I can be reached at waylaid13@yahoo.com

Other Information:
I'm married with no kids (maybe that will change if I lose the weight) and have 4 hilarious dogs. UPDATE: Baby is on the way! Yay! I love music and movies, playing Lord of the Rings Online, reading, watching TV, and just general goofiness. I'm a lovable nerd and not afraid to admit it!
