Here I am again. For the last ten years, I have gained and lost the same thirty pounds. When actually I need to lose *80* pounds. Now I understand what I need to do and finally put it in action.

In Mid Feb. to March 20th, I have lost 10 pounds.

How did I do it?

Eating high protein and lots of Veggies. I am using Organic Food as much as possible. But honestly its expensive so I get Strawberries, Blue Berries, Black Berries, and Raspberries from the grocery store. I use Fruit and yogurt for snacks.

I walk 2 miles about 3-4 times a week. I started weight training this week. I am going to do it 3-4 times a week. I am starting to add light jogging in small spurts. Its been a cold start to spring in NC. Its still too cold to walk and jog daily. I am ready for days to warm up.

Member Since: 8/3/2011

Fitness Minutes: 2,525

My Goals:
Drink More Water!

A healthy 1500 calorie diet.

Eat More Veggies!

Lose 70 pounds! But my first goal is to get below 200!

I would like to run a lap around the track and not get winded.

Gain more muscle and lose the fat!

My Program:
I eat my biggest meal at breakfast. I find it MAJORLY curbs my appetite through out the day.

Every morning I eat a large healthy salad before I eat anything else. I usually have some protein.

I am sticking to a 1500 calorie diet. Eating a lot of fruit and veggies. Plus plenty of water.

I walk 2.5 miles about 3-4 days a week.

Personal Information:
I am currently single and with no kids. So I have no excuses! ;)

I live in Durham, NC.

I am blessed with a amazing family and friends. They are great support for me.

    I have hypothyroidism too! It is so hard to deal with some days, the being tired and it being harder to lose weight. It can be done though. If you need support, just write.

    Hi! Thank you for adding me as a spark friend! I'm looking forward to watching you go through this journey. I started where you did back in 2009. Took a long time to take the weight off, but it's worth it. No fad diets...just changed my lifestyle. I've kept my weight off for 1 year 2 weeks now---Longest I've ever maintained a weight! You can do this!!
