Hello- I am here for the third or fourth time, trying to find the courage to lose this excess weight and maintain a healthy lifestyle. I recently changed from a job where I travel constantly, to a job where I am at a desk most of the time and it sabotages my plan. I hate exercise and struggle to find where I will fit it in and enjoy it. That's a little about me - lets hear from you! By the way, did I mention I was a Sports Med degree holder? It's not like I don't know HOW to lose the weight, I just have a ton of excuses about why I can't!

Fitness Minutes: 1,150

My Goals:
My target: I'd like to drop 25 TOTAL pounds by by tax day April 15th. I will be updating my ticker to reflect this new goal!

To not only lose weight, but build muscle.

To make lifestyle changes as opposed to quick fixes.

My Program:
Exercise 3 days a week, at least 15 mins a day starting as soon as my body adjusts to it's new calorie range. Increase step count to 5,000 a day by the end of the month of April.

Keeping a food journal, tracking daily caloric intake.

Developing new eating habits.

Utilizing Body Gsopel exercise and Nutrisystem to "kick-start" my program.

Personal Information:

Other Information:
February Goals:

Weight: Going to back this one down to 8 lbs for the month. 2lbs a week.

H2O - Drink AT LEAST 4 cups of water a day for 30 days. Here we go again!

Calories - track all food every day in my food tracker - regardless of whether I am going to make my calories or not! Keeping this one.

Health - Dentist in the next 30 days - Ummmmm ok

Read for motivation or pleasure at least 3 days every week. This keeps me from being a TV slug on the couch every night.

    Hey! I am finally trying to pick up the pieces and get back on track! For the last year I have been packing back on the pounds thanks to a ton of stress from being jobless most of the time- I'm still jobless, but I plan on getting my butt back in shape so I don't slip into a depression again. I just started a 1 year challenge to lose the weight! Just wanted to say hi and see how you were.

    We CAN reverse years of damage to our bodies by deciding to raise our standards for ourselves, then living differently. Old wounds heal, injuries repair, and the whole system improves with just a few changes in what we put into our bodies and how we move them.

    I found this quote and it shows even famous people have self-esteem issues:
    It took me a long time not to judge myself through someone else's eyes. ~Sally Field
    I think we can all learn from this.

    Skinny Vibes team challenge: to share a favorite quote, this is mine:
    “We, the unwilling,led by the unknowing,are doing the impossible for the ungrateful. We have done so much,for so long,with so little,we are now qualified to do anything with nothing."
