In search of that healthier person I know is inside me. She's been trying to get out for years, but I've always had an excuse as to why I have to start tomorrow. This year is the Year! So here I am...time for a change! Moving forward! Update: My December 2019 Goals! 1. Keep going to the gym 3 days a week. 2. Pack my lunch 5 days a week. 3. Eat home cooked meals 6 days a week. Try to swap in more healthier options in place of bread, rice, and pasta when able. 4. Reduce anxiety - been doing much better on this. Haven't had to take anything for anxiety in 10 weeks! Keep moving forward. 5. Work on getting better sleep. Been logging my sleep for past month. Exercise is helping me sleep better too.

Member Since: 4/9/2012

Fitness Minutes: 45,199

My Goals:
To be healthier and feel better about myself.

Short-term goals:
1. To drink 8 glasses of water a day. Update - I do this almost everyday, about 95% of the time.
2. To make fitness part of my regular routine. Update - I need to focus on this more over the winter months, once snow hit I've slacked. 2014 Update - I still struggle with getting fitness a priority. Despite the struggle I will keep trying!
3. To be more conscious of what I eat each day. Update - even when I've been offline for a while I still was very much aware of what and how much I was eating. I have the awareness now! 2014 Update - I'm very aware of what I eat and when I just need to do better planning with home cooked meals and less eating on the go. 2017 Update - joined Planet Fitness so now there is NO EXCUSE!

Long-term goal:
To lose 100 pounds and be healthier and feel comfortable in my body. Update - I've was down 33 pounds by Sept-12 but I've gained a couple back over winter currently down 31 - gett


My Program:
I am working my program by drinking my water, tracking my nutrition, and tracking my fitness through Spark People. I rely on this program as it helps me feel more accountable for my successes and setbacks.



Personal Information:
My name is Sherri. I am 49 years old and married to a wonderful man who is much more active and healthier than I. I have two grown children and three grandbabies that are the spark in my life.

I've always had weight issues as far back as I can remember. I've tried many things over the years to lose weight and have had some success. But since I turned 40 my battle seems to have become much harder. I love keeping busy and doing things with my family, but have found something much harder to participate in with the extra weight.

I want to enjoy life and be happy in my body. This time it WILL work!


Other Information:
Live each day to the fullest, and take time to enjoy the simple things in life!

    There is no escaping that we need food to run the chemistry of life in our cells. So if you want to achieve full vitality, then feed your cells the very best food that is the most packed w/vitamins, minerals, fats and antioxidants. Terry Wahls
