I'm 31 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!

Fitness Minutes: 70,779

My Goals:
-Fit back into size 6-8 jeans.

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, walking) for 45+ minutes, 2x/week

--I also do pole fitness classes for 60 mins, 3-4x per week. This is mainly strength-training in nature, but includes some flexibility work as well as some cardio (dance/choreography) classes.

    I had a great January. I gained a few pounds during my vacation travels and off time, but got right back into it and lost them before my Spartan Race. Did well on it and am now slowly getting back into the training mode for the next one. Keep the Faith, Stay Strong.
