My weight loss tips, ideas, vents, etc:
1) when you are not motivated to go to the gym put on your workout clothes anyway - its hard for me not to go once i have my clothes on.

2) drink lots and lots of water - mix it up with some crystal light. need help keeping track of how much water your drink? try different colored water bottles and drinking them in rainbow color order. if you have gone through 5 colors you know you have gone through 5 sports bottles.

3) dont keep your diet a secret - get your friends and family involved. the bigger support group you have the better :) your healthy lifestyle changes have a good chance of rubbing off on someone else.

4) keep a journal and take pictures of yourself along the way so you can track your progress.
my mind is constantly boggled how much i have changed since i have started.

my favorite websites:
(other than spark ;)
dotti's restaurants - this site has been around a while now and gives basic nutritional info on tons of restaurants with WW point info -www.dwlz.com/restaurants.html

hungry girl - "tips and tricks for hungry chicks" has great articles on food and weightloss. fun site to browse

calorie counter - name says it all - find info on tons of foods

calorieking - articles, tons of interactive tools, quizzes, and nutritional database

My Goals:
my main goal is to get in shape and live a healthier lifestyle.
i want to be a good role model and i want to lead by example.

My Program:
i attend my local gym every week. i strive to make healthier eating habits. i watch what i eat and *care* what i put in my mouth. do i really *need* a huge handful of chips or will a couple do just fine? i have found that if i deny myself anything it will lead to my downfall so this isnt a diet.. rather a lifestyle change and its working.

my workouts include:

At Home I Use-

Horizon Elliptical machine model 3.3E
Its great having one in my living room to be able to move while watching fluff TV or movies

Total Gym which is great for toning
(best freebie from give away pile i've ever found!)

Bosu Ball which is great for core exercises and balance

Selection of Free Weights

At the Gym-
Treadmill - walk at an incline or jog/run

Elliptical machine for different strides and inclines..basically i get so use to the one at home they feel 'fun again' :)

Out and About-
Walking/Jogging to and from work

Personal Information:
Born and raised in Seattle. I recently (2019) completed a Masters of Public Health degree and I am ready for new adventures.

Music is my passion and love all kinds. I love goth, ebm, industrial, new wave/80''s, punk, lounge, cowboy, and "AM gold classics''

Other Information:
im 5 feet 5 inches tall

    Hey! I just stumbled across your sparkpage.... and i HAD to tell you that you seem to have 'sparked' something in me, to FINALLY get back on track and lose the weight for my wedding. I saw the picture of you in your wedding gown getting ready, and you look absolutely beautiful and sooo happy.... i am worried if i dont feel comfortable in my skin, i will not be as happy on my wedding day. Thank you soooo much for motivating me!!!!!

    Thou hast brightened my day twice, therefore do I grant thee:

    "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"

    Blessed Be, Amanda
