My name is Stacie. I'm a divorced mom with 2 adult children, a 10 year old, a balinese cat and a golden retriever. I started this journey with between 150 and 175 lbs to lose. It's time to get the rest of the excess weight off. Size 10 pants, here I come!

Member Since: 1/9/2009

Fitness Minutes: 15,383

My Goals:
Eat Right + Exercise Often = Feel Better + Live Longer!

My Program:
Eating 1700-1750 calories a day. 60 minutes of cardio daily, and 45-60 minutes of strength training 3 days a week. Working with a nutritionist/health coach and a personal trainer.

Personal Information:
7/18/2011 - I had an epiphany the other day. This whole weight loss journey I'm on is just a series of small decisions, not some big daunting task.

8/3/2011 - The advice that changed my life: "You aren't eating at night because you're weak and you have no willpower. You're eating because you're tired and your body wants energy. Go to bed instead of eating, and make sure to get at least 7 hours of sleep a night."

8/15/2011 - When it's that time of the month, the scale is a dirty rotten liar and should be avoided at all costs.

9/1/2011 - I really CAN do anything I set my mind to.

Other Information:
11/28/2011 - Sometimes you have to take a deep breath and start over. It's okay to be human.

1/16/2012 - No matter what, track it BEFORE you eat it.

2/6/2012 - Sometimes a plateau isn't a plateau. If you've honestly been doing what you should be doing for more than a month and you're not seeing results, go to the doctor. You may have an underlying health issue impeding your progress.

    I want you to know that your three rules saved me tonight! Especially the one about trcking before I eat it. the situation: i haven't baked cookies for over 5 years now. A very nice workman putting in our new driveway went the extra mile in moving some plants, etc. and it's been cold outside for he and his crew. So i said to him that I would bake some cookies for tomorrow! As soon as I did, i thought, "This is a dangerous situation for me!" I said to my husband that we could just go and buy some and he said, "I'd love some of your CC cookies!". So I made them, measured out 15 gm of chips and ate that and before bed I now will have a finished cookie with milk! You are such an inspiration! jan emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Just stopped by to say your blog influenced me in such a way that yesterday I was able to resist emotional eating. Thank you for being my sparkfriend. I am hanging your three sentences on my desk at work today, just in case I get overconfident. emoticon
