UPDATE: Feb 2014
Time to get back into fitness. I want energy and health so I can pursue all the things I want in life.

UPDATE JULY 2012
Baby is here. My lovely little Simon. He makes it very hard to work out! But, I am focusing on eating healthy and getting back into tracking my food. He is breastfed only- what great motivation to put good food into your body!


UPDATE NOVEMBER 2011
Pregnancy is progressing well. We found out the baby bug will be a BOY! We are anxious to meet him- come on March.


UPDATE JULY 2011
Husband and I just found out the news- we are expecting a baby in March of 2012. I plan on being a healthy pregnant lady, so I can be a healthy mom. So, weight loss goals are on hold. I would like to gain a healthy amount of weight for baby, and then I know I can get it back off again easy afterwards! (One can be positive in her thinking, right?)
New goals and plan to be shared as I figure it all out.
First dr. appt and hopefully first visual of baby bug is on Aug. 5th.


Update Jan. 2011
I'm still here. I think I am getting better and better at this, but still have a lot of work to do, and habits to change. 2010 was a net nothing- however thank goodness I lost some weight to balance what I gained. And while I didn't come out ahead, I did maintain where I started which is better than what it could have been. I increased my fitness throughout the year and I am taking less time to get back on the horse when I am thrown off (or when I let go and fall!).
Can't wait to get to know my Sparkbuddies better and spend this year getting even more healthy.




UPDATE JUNE 2010
Wow....almost 3 years and I am still here chugging along. Some days I get down on myself for not making the scale move faster, but then I kick my own butt and remind myself that I have made huge progress.
I am healthier and happier. By adding more nutrition and exercise into my life I have found a way to keep my depression and anxiety more under control. I am a little more confident, and I am ok with taking my time to get to that ultimate weight loss goal. This is really about health and feeling good about myself- I think that is what it has always been about.


Update- May 2009
So, I am still here. Went through a bad period earlier this year and was very self sabotaging. Renewed my energy and finally got a gym membership. Working out regularly has changed my outlook, my motivation, and been a huge positive influence on me. This is more than about weight- its about a good body image, a positive outlook, and retraining my brain from negativity to positivity. That's not easy!
I am now over two years married. I am almost finished with my fourth year of teaching. I am almost done with my first year of grad school. I know that I am a person who can persevere and commit to things. Healthy living is something I can do too!



Nov. 2007
Hi! I am a mid-twenties wandering soul...hoping to start some better eating habits and make some new friends here at sparkpeople.

I teach for a living. I write, read, and make things for fun.
I like to hang out with intelligent people who know more than me.
I am constantly seeking new information.
I have two cats that are insane, but I love them.
I am married- about a year now...and struggling to make my way in this thing called a relationship.

Overall- I tend to be an optimistic, happy-go-lucky person. I am very Type-A though and eating had become a coping method.

Still on this journey though!

    Hey Tara. Its great to meet you. Partnering up was such a great idea. I have been stuck on my last 5 pounds for almost three months and this just might be the extra motivation I need to reach my goal. It looks like we have a lot in common so I'm excited about getting to know you and helping anyway I can. Have a great week. We'll talk soon.

    Welcome to the Teachers Learning to Lose team, it is so good to have you. Come on over to the message board and introduce yourself, give us a chance to know you. I love Spark People, this site has helped me lose 50 lbs. I use the tools religiously, but it would not have been as easy without the support from my team members. I am so glad you joined us and look forward to chatting with you!
