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!

Member Since: 8/14/2007

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.

    "Many things are simply not going to happen with just one, or three, or even a dozen attempts. Yet anything becomes possible with enough persistence.Keep going, and allow your efforts to build upon one another. Keep going, and transform the disappointments into achievements. You have what it takes to keep going, because all it ever takes is just one more step forward. Keep going, and work your way steadily to the richest rewards you can imagine."
    -- Ralph Marston

    May your joys be as bright as the morning,

    And your sorrows merely be shadows that fade,

    In the sunlight of love.

    May you have enough happiness to keep you sweet.

    Enough trials to keep you strong.

    Enough sorrows to keep you human.

    Enough hope to keep you happy.

    Enough failure to keep you humble.

    Enough success to keep you eager.

    Enough friends to give you comfort.

    Enough faith and courage in yourself to banish sadness.

    Enough wealth to meet your needs.

    And one thing more: enough determination to make each day a more wonderful day than the day before.

    May you have the hindsight to know where you've been
    the foresight to know where you're going
    and the insight to know when you're going too far.
