HI. Fell of the wagon....AGAIN. Guess I didnt prove too much to her (see below), but I am back at it!

1-15-2011 As you can see ffrom below, this is my third time on Spark. This time I am out to prove my new doctor wrong. Seh claims I have to have surgey to get this under control - lets see how I do. I just have to remember - every day is a win!

2008 [I have struggled with my weight my whole life.
In 2006, I lost 40 lbs and have no idea how. I was partying, drinking lots, eating crap, etc.
Since then, I have gained 20 lbs of it back and realize I have to do something stat! I didnt do much about it because even though I remember how horribe I felt at my highest weight in 06, 350 lbs.]

2009 [ :( For the first time ever, I have put a tremendous effort into getting healthier, but I have actually gained weight. I am going to give this a try and see if this works!!!
I know this will be a slower process for me than most because I already eat healthier than most, but I have yet to find "activity" I love, so that is my new goal!!]

I will overcome this!
I will be stronger than before my accident!
I will eat to live not live to eat. I am from the south, so this will be interesting. LOL

Ok I changed these a bit based on the fact that the original ones were unrealistic.....

Member Since: 6/9/2007

Fitness Minutes: 3,903

My Goals:
I think my ultimate goal would be to get to 175. I would be really happy at 250 though. My goal right now is to get to below 300. I started trying to loose weight at 309 but I am now at 380.
This goals are total estimates but lets see how I do.

SHORT TERM GOALS (everytime I loose a bag o' sugar)

375 ( ) Zumba DVD
370 ( ) Pedi/Mani
365 ( ) Kettlebells
360 ( )
355 ( )
350 ( ) Massage
345 ( )
340 ( ) Weekend Trip
335 ( )
330 ( )
325 ( ) Photo Session

My Program:
I usually have zero will power, so I have decided to just start with walking and lots of water!
Tracking my food and going for high fiber, high protein.

Personal Information:
It is always hard to write (or for a pun "right")something about yourself, but in short:

I am 27, soon to be 28. I am orignally from FL but moved to CA in 2007. I am in love with a great man.
I want to be able to sit on his lap and hike with him and have his healthy children.

UPDATE: The wonderful man mentioned above married me and I continued to get heavier, so sad. I am now 30 and would like to make a positive change before I am 31.

Other Information:
I am determind to be healthier before I start a family! or so I can even start a family!

    My Christmas Wish For You
    My Christmas wish for you, my friend
    Is not a simple one
    For I wish you hope and joy and peace
    Days filled with warmth and sun

    I wish you love and friendship too
    Throughout the coming year
    Lots of laughter and happiness
    To fill your world with cheer

    May you count your blessings, one by one
    And when totaled by the lot
    May you find all you've been given
    To be more than what you sought

    May your journeys be short, your burdens light
    May your spirit never grow old
    May all your clouds have silver linings
    And your rainbows pots of gold

    I wish this all and so much more
    May all your dreams come true
    May you have a Merry Christmas friend
    And a happy New Year, too .. Hugs, Rose
