This is what I said when I first set up my page on SparkPeople - I'm sure I'm no different then most people, we've tried and tried to lose the weight, had a little success, something happens, we fall off the wagon, and gain what we lost and more. Well! This time is going to be different! I'm not going on a diet I am changing my LIFE! I started with some help from a naturopath to help wean me off the sugar and white stuff and had discovered The Eat-Clean Diet (which is a life style NOT a diet) and Tosca Reno. So I cam jumping on the eating clean band wagon and not looking back a garbage food! - Yep that's about it! I wanted to change the title because I've started the new phase of my life. I'm not longer "getting started" this time, I am fully on my way!

Fitness Minutes: 14,846

My Goals:
My long term goal was to lose 52 pounds. I only have 10 left! All total I have lost 72 pounds! Yea me!

Short term goals more strength training and make sure to get adequate protein and drink my water!

My Program:
I've been reading "The Eat-Clean Diet" by Tosca Reno. I am following most of the principles and will incorporate more as time goes by.

I will drink 80-100 ounces of water at day.

I gave up soda I can't remember when but it's been a good thing.

I am walking the Susan G. Komen 3-Day in November So right now a lot of walking and increasing my running.

Strength training needs to be more consistent, right now it's 2 days a week and depends on when I do it what I do.

Personal Information:
I am a daughter of the Risen King, wife of 19 years, mom to two teens, college student, and mom to various fur-babies.

I am worth it!

Other Information:
"When you walk, your steps will not be hampered; when you run, you will not stumble." -Proverbs 4:12

"Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him."
— James 1:12 (NIV)

"You can't plow a field by turning it over in your mind. ...and you can't train for a race by thinking about it - you have to put in the miles."
