I think of all the things I want out of life, and all the things I need to do to get there. So why do I keep giving up on myself? So many have disappointed me... professionally and personally. The only person I can really rely on to get anything done is me. So why do I continually let myself down? I'm starting over today. I'm going to make it.

Member Since: 1/9/2007

Fitness Minutes: 450

My Goals:
ULTIMATE GOAL: Yosemite Trip Summer 2012...Hike to Nevada Falls with family

I want to be able to keep up with my 5 and 7 year-olds! My mom was always the one staying back in camp cooking the meals and sitting around while my dad, sister and I went on hikes....I want to be able to hike with them!

Birthday Goal: 20 lbs by April 12

Goal weight by 4/12/12 (37th birthday)

My Program:
I am working out with cardio 5 days a week and every other day lifting weights and toning.

28-32 points/day
NO eating after 7pm
8 hours of sleep/night
64 oz. water/day

Personal Information:
35 year old mother of 2... a 5 y.0. girl and a 7 1/2 y.o. boy.

I live near the beach and would love to get into a decent swimsuit next summer! :)

Other Information:
I met my husband in Italy on a college study-abroad trip. (It's a great story ;) We've been together for 14 years, married for 9 of them.

I am 35 years old, and have been overweight since kindergarten.

I learned to crochet in 3rd grade and haven't stopped since :)

I can sew my own clothes and create costumes for plus size women as a side business (and for fun...don't we ALL deserve nice costumes?)

I play the flute

I am a freelance graphic designer and LOVING it :)

My favorite movies are Office Space, Schindler's List, and The Princess Bride.

I read about 2 books a week, and think that The Lovely Bones must be one of the best books every written.

Right up there with my love to read is my love to dance (the shame of my family :)

    I was so happy to see you had been by : ) Great news about the Y membership....there is much for the whole family there. Getting into the habit of eating well is a big part of it are really doing a great job of making things happen. I have been horrible the last few weeks....having my whole family home and out of school(dh teaches) has done nothing but kick in my domestic gene and rekindled my love of cooking. I found a website that has the most wonderful recipes...none of them healthy,lol...but I've had a ball. Back on top of things now though...had my fun...gained almost 5 and am back on track. Those pasta shells you posted look fabulous....thinking they are next on my list : ) They won't break the bank and my kids would love them. I hope you'll blog about your adventures at the Y....or anything else....I always love reading what you write when you get time! Keep up the effort are doing GREAT! (((LOVE AND HUGS)))
