Wildcard1--about me

It is getting easier and easier to make healthier choices, although, I do have days where I just don't eat as healthy as I should. The exercising is definitely getting easier.

I started this journey by taking advantage of the fast break stage. I gave up the soda, cut back on the fried food, and started watching portion sizes. I thought about exercising, but really didn't start doing that until I moved to stage 2.

It is getting easier and easier to make healthier choices, although, I do have days where I just don't eat as healthy as I should. The exercising is definitely getting easier.

I started this journey by taking advantage of the fast break stage. I gave up the soda, cut back on the fried food, and started watching portion sizes. I thought about exercising, but really didn't start doing that until I moved to stage 2.

During stage 2, I started exercising more, and really paying attention to portion sizes, drinking water, and getting more fruits and vegetables. I also started getting involved with the teams that I joined, posting, and getting to know others. I got involved in challenges and have made some really good friends here.

During stage 3, I measured portions, I really started paying attention to labels, and just tried to make good choices in the foods that I was eating. I exercised a lot more, mostly using Walk Away the Pounds, but I did other stuff as well.

I moved to stage 4, and pretty much am continuing to do what I have been doing in stage 3. I have also gotten my best friend involved with SparkPeople, and we work out together a couple of times a week. It makes me more accountable, and I have a lot more fun while we are exercising.

I am not on a diet! I am on a lifestyle change! Saying that, I do not avoid foods, I just enjoy them in moderation. I love hot wings, and decided that I am not going to give them up. I do not eat them every week, but more like once every 3 months. We plan our wing nights in advance, so I know when they are going to be. I plan them into my day. Yes, I will be over calories that day, but I am very aware that I am going to be doing this, and plan it into my week. Same goes with just about every other food that is not good for you. Cake and ice cream, if it is a special occasion, I will have a small piece of cake and a small scoop of ice cream. Life it too short to deny yourself of all the good stuff that you like. But eating these foods is not something that I do everyday. Most days, I do pretty decent with my food.


The people here at SparkPeople are so friendly and encouraging. I want to thank everyone who has touched my experience here. You guys have made me stay accountable and with this program. I am pretty sure that I will be a lifer here on SparkPeople, because this struggle with my weight, will be a lifetime battle that I will continue to win!

My final destination is to be at 160. I did not want to be discouraged before I started by seeing how far I had to go, so I broke it up into smaller, more manageable bites.

4/8/09--Became a motivational member of Spark People! I am honored that people have voted for me. Thanks so much! I will continue to do my best to motivate others to do their best. Thanks again!

I have 2 children ages 10 and 5, and we are constantly on the go!

I like to bowl, read, swim, camp, travel and play on Pogo.

Good luck to all and thanks for stopping by my site!
