Welcome to my spark page! I joined SparkPeople in January 2008. When I started this journey, I fully expected another failure. After all, I'd been down this road before. But what I wasn't expecting was to meet so many great people and have so many invaluable resources.

I had misconceptions about everything...food, diet, exercise...you name it! Over the course of the past three years I have learned to appreciate food without overdoing it, I've learned to love exercise, and I've gained incredible knowledge of all things health-related. And I just can't get enough!

My first goal was to lose 10 pounds. I figured anyone could lose 10 pounds. After I achieved that goal, I started exercising. I bought 2 workout videos to do at home. I barely made it through the first one. My head was pounding, my face was red, and honestly, I felt terrible. But I kept at it. Now I look forward to exercising. I've learned step aerobics, kickboxing, weight training, and more! In 2009 I started running and I've now got a couple of half marathons under my belt! If you're still reading this, I encourage you to challenge yourself continually. Start small, but keep at it! You can do it!

My Goals:
Get those last few pounds off and learn the art of maintenance! Also, learn to really love my body. It's been so good to me.


My Program:
I lost 125 pounds in 3 years with spark people. I'm still learning to balance nutrition and fitness. I plan to fight the good fight each day of my life. I will never return to my nearly 300 pound self!

    Hi Jamie- I grew up in JeffCo and ended up here, after living all over StL. Are you a born and bred St Charlesian? Do you work for Mosby? Just a guess. Our wedding is September 12th. Tonight I read through what our officiant has composed for our wedding ceremony. It's all so real! And fun. Thanks for the encouragement. I was famished at work all day. I don't think I had enough protein in my diet. Need to add some nuts or a cheesestick or something. I added you as one of my friends. :-)

    Hi Jamie- I am new to SP and read your post on the StL page. I am in St Charles too and looking for a workout buddy for club fitness but it looks like you are a curves girl. Can I add you as a friend?

    Hey Jamie! Glad you're back. I've had a crazy week with my birthday and starting a new job and everything.

    How was Vegas anyway?

    Keep up the good work, and we'll both be making consistent progress soon!
