I have been trying to lose weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle for years now. I have lost and gained more times than I can count. I struggle with emotional eating, which really affects why I lose and gain over and over again. I am determined that I will meet my goals- that I will lose weight and that I will be healthy. I will never give up on my goals!

I am going to take this journey one hour, one day, one week, one month at a time- and whether its takes me a year or 5 years or more- I will get to my goal weight and reach all my other goals.

I'm on a great team- Aspire & Inspire that has monthly challenges that keeps me motivated! Each month is a different theme, and is concentrated on different healthy habits. Every one on the team is so supportive, and I'm glad to be part of a great team!

I've committed to the 5% challenges. I love the 5% challenges- they keep me motivated, encourage me to exercise, track my food, and develop other healthy habits. GO FIRECRACKERS!!

I'm going to look at each day "What can I do to get closer to my goals?"

"Believe you can and you're half way there"

"Nothing is impossible, even the word its self says 'Im possible'"

"When you think about quitting, think about why you started"

"It won't be easy, but it will be worth it"

"Losing weight is a mind game, change your mind, change your body"

My Goals:
I want to lose over 100 pounds. I have a few small goals I have set along the way. I met my first goal of getting under 250 pounds during the summer 5% challenge.

I've committed to the 5% Fall challenge. I love these 5% challenges. They are so motivating and keep me on track with my healthy lifestyle.

My goals for the Fall 5% challenge are:

1. To track everything- if im not tracking on SP- to atleast write everything down and when I ate it.
2. To exercise everyday for atleast for 60 minutes
3. To get outside and enjoy the Fall weather and get back to getting 10,000 steps daily
4. Post daily for the challenge
5. Drink lots of water

My Program:
Track my food, eat healthy foods, cook healthy meals at home, drink lots of water and exercise daily. My favorite exercise is walking. Its important to me to learn how to change my lifestyle into a healthy lifestyle and develop healthy habits. Not every day is going to be perfect- Ill have bad days, even bad weeks- that's why to me it is a lifestyle change- not a diet. I want to develop healthy habits that I know I can accomplish, and ones I know I can do the rest of my life- ones that won't make me feel deprived.

Personal Information:
I've been married for over 12 years. My husband is a dairy farmer, and his family owns a dairy farm. I help them milk cows in the mornings. I have 7 very spoiled indoor cats.

    “I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.” – Michael Jordan so emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    The struggle is part of the journey. Everyone goes through it. Keep going and don't give up.

    Even if you are the only one who believes in your dream, if you are committed to it you will achieve it.

    “Change is not something that we should fear. Rather, it is something that we should welcome. For without change, nothing in this world would ever grow or blossom, and no one in this world would ever mover forward to become the person they’re meant to be.” – B.K.S. Lyengar
