I'm looking for a way out of the vicious weight gain/ weight loss cycle. Unfortunately in recent years, my way out has simply been to stay on the gain train. I'm hoping to reverse the damage I've done, and find a more mindful and healthy way of living.

My Goals:
Mini Goal #1: Lose 5 pounds--Done!

Mini Goal #2: Lose 25 pounds by Thanksgiving--Made it to 24, and that's close enough!!

Mini Goal #3: As a Christmas present to myself, my next goal is to be down 30 pounds by Christmas day.--Goal met by Christmas Eve! :-)

Mini Goal #4: To have lost 45 pounds (the Half-way Mark!!) by Valentine's Day.
Done! But it wasn't until May 2nd. :-)

Long-Term Super Goal: Lose 90 pounds by July of 2010. When I reach that goal, I will move on to the next set of goals.
Well, I'm sitting at 51 lbs down, and July is a week away, so I'm slightly off-target. BUT... I've lost 51 crazy pounds, I'm exercising more than I've ever exercised in my life, I am eating lots of very healthy food. I'm feeling better about not being exactly where I wanted to be when I began this process last August.

New goal: To lose 19 lbs. by my wedding in mid-October. Wish me luck!!!!

My Program:
First of all, I'm joining SparkPeople in order to broaden my support network. I'm a vegetarian, so I already do well with laying low on the saturated fats and boosting veggies. However, I'm not good at monitoring portion sizes, and I have not been exercising regularly. I'm hoping to make improvements on both fronts.

Personal Information:
I was born and raised in small-town New Hampshire, but moved to North Carolina almost four years ago. I'm 33 years old. I have no children, but live with my boyfriend, my dog, my three cats, a tortoise, and five chickens.

Other Information:
I'm a country girl at heart, and love the outdoors. I love hiking in the woods with my dog and boyfriend. I love to read and write. In the few moments I squirrel away for myself I write poetry. I keep a vegetable garden, and I'm also trying my hand at raising chickens in my backyard.

Hi, thanks so much for your pre-race well wishes! I had a terrific time at the half marathon this morning and am feeling great! Three months and 110 miles of training was well worth how I felt today when I came across the finish line! Best wishes to you for a great weekend!
