I'm 30 years old (5'7") and I'm ready for change! When I was in high school, I was the skinny lanky teen, but due to the freshman 15 (and sophomore 15, and junior 10) I gained extra weight. This was due to poor eating habits (fast food, desserts) and not participating in high school track and cross country anymore.

I first joined SP in April of 2009, and followed a strict program. I lost 9 pounds within 5 weeks and quit SP for the summer. I quickly gained it all back, plus an additional 18 pounds! I made a decision in November 2010 that I was going to lose this weight once and for all--and that I need to take a less drastic approach. I now lose about 1/2 pound a week...this is a lifestyle change & I am a firm believer in "Slow and Steady Wins the Race!" I eat dessert almost every day & I don't deprive myself of any food!

(1/7/12 edit) My initial goal was to lose 40 pounds in 13 months, in time for my family''s vacation to Kauai, Hawaii. :) I ended up losing 29 pounds, which I was happy about. However, that still means I have 11 pounds to go, and I'd like to wrap that up in 2012. 2011 was a great year for weight loss, and I think that will continue on into 2012 as well if I keep doing what I'm doing and working hard!

My Goals:
-Fit back into size 6 jeans.

-Feel confident running just in a sports bra & shorts.

-Lower total cholesterol below 200 (was 272, then 248, 233, 201, 190....now 248 again :( )

-Run a 5k every year.

-Get to Level 4 at my pole fitness studio by the end of 2019.

My Program:
--I try to eat 3 balanced meals per day, with low-calorie snacks as needed. I swear by tracking your nutrition / food intake on the Sparkpeople app. It WORKS.

--I do cardio (elliptical, biking, hiking) for 45+ minutes, 2x/week

--I also do pole fitness classes for 60 mins, about 3-5x per week. This is mainly strength-training in nature, but includes some flexibility work as well as some cardio (dance/choreography) classes.
