Another UPDATE (November 2010): I've been up and down and up and down the same 7 pounds all the way since April it annoying. But here I am, back at it--trying to REALLY be mindful of what goes in my mouth and how I can get moving more in a practical way for my lifestyle and busy-ness...I joined the Biggest Loser Contest at my school this week, and having my brother's wedding in April in California is my goal...I want to A) be H-O-T at the wedding, and be able to buy myself a sexy summerish dress with sparkles and frou-frou in a size 12 (yikes-that is a terrifying thing to say "out loud"!)...and B) get a tattoo on my back of a phoenix when I get to 175...

Two goals that I am sharing with the world...So please join me in L-I-V-I-N-G and not letting life pass you by...being mindful of your emotional health, relaxing and breathing more, being mindful of your spiritual health, being silent before God and practicing love, kindness, peace, joy, patience, gentleness, and self-control, and being mindful of your physical health, putting good food in your body, communicating and enjoying the company of the people around you, and moving, moving, moving!

Udate (April 2010--Thanks for the reminder Christine): I'm still here, doing okay...haven't lost in a while, but I'm still trying. Claire is a year old, and I want to be comfortable in my skin this summer and be able to play with that baby once she starts walking! I think I can do it!

UPDATE: Happy New Year!!!! Here we goooooooooooooooo...I'm at pre-baby weight, pre-summer camp weight, and now want to be at high school weight...180 here I coooooooooooooome!

**Update: October 6, 2009...My baby's 6 month birthday and we're gonna feed her greenbeans! :) I'm excited...I want to teach my baby how to love food but how to appreciate food and her body and movement too...I'm feeling good after losing about 9.5 lbs...and being at pre-baby weight...just a few more lbs to pre-summer camp weight....want to be there by Thanksgiving...can I do it????????

***UPDATE: May 27th, 2009: I'm baaaaaaa-aaaaack! With a baby and a lot of breastfeeding going on, I'm going to carefully try to get back down to pre-pregnancy, pre-summer weight! Being busy with a baby I may have a hard time with the exercising part of it all, but we've got a stroller, and she's a good sleeper, so hoping to get back at it and have some fun in the sun this summer!

**Update: March 10, 2008: I'm setting mini-goals for myself because up until now, I've been doing pretty good...but not as good as I could have!

Mini-goal #1: Under 200 by May 1, 2008...pedicure to get ready for summer!

Mini-goal #2: 180 lbs by start of school year 2008-09...New school clothes shopping at Birch Run with my husband (a mini getaway!) Maybe I can up this to my anniversay July 26th, 2008 and make it a more romantic trip!

This is where I'm starting....Good luck to me!

Hello! My name is Lisa and I just want to be better. I want to make better choices in my life. I am a married woman, and although my husband and I recently (about a year ago) lost quite a bit of weight (my husband lost 80 lbs!), I seemed to have gained it all back and he hasn't. I have a relationship with Jesus Christ and feel like my addiction to food is getting in the way of me being who God wants me to be in my life. I'm excited for this journey towards health!

My Goals:
I still need to learn to love myself enough to NOT eat when I am stressed, overjoyed, bored, or just offered food. I would like to love myself and my God more than I love that donut. I want to run a marathon with my husband!

I also want to learn to be healthy for my baby girl--eating mostly organic, eating locally grown fruits and veggies, and getting outside to play!

My Program:
Eating less...

Moving more...

Less Computer...

More fun!

Making choices at every turn...

Personal Information:
I am a happily married woman with a beautiful toddler. I like to scrapbook, run, hang out with friends, play boardgames and just have fun! I'm still learning to be a mommy right now, but I'm learning that I'm a pretty darn awesome one!

I am a teacher of students with autism spectrum disorder. I love my job and my students and wouldn't want to do anything else with my life right now, except maybe job-share or be able to stay at home...We'll see what the next few years holds for that dream...

I am a Christian woman and my relationship with God means a lot to me. I want to be all that God wants me to be and I want to share the love I know I have with others who I meet.

Other Information:
" My brothers and sisters, you will face all kinds of trouble. When you do, think of it as pure joy. Your faith will be put to the test. You know that when that happens it will produce in you the strength to continue. The strength to keep going must be allowed to finish its work. Then you will be all you should be. You will have everything you need." James 1:2-4
