UPDATE March 2016

I have lost 55 lbs!!! I still can't quite believe it. I have gone down 6 dress sizes and gained all kinds of muscle, it is wonderful how much easier some things are. I am also really excited about becoming a Team Beachbody Coach. I love connecting and sharing with others about living in a healthy way.

Hello! I am in my late 20's now and I joined SparkPeople a number of years ago and I found it really helpful then but then I stopped coming on. More recently I rediscovered SparkPeople when I wanted to shape up for my wedding. (It has come and gone.) I am finally out of school now which used to take over my life.

I have just joined Goodlife and had my first 2 classes there which were SO awesome! About a month ago when I first considered joining Goodlife I found myself at a new highest weight ever. I am so many different feelings that yet again this number has gotten higher.
I have 3 goals, first to be healthy, mind, body, spirit, next to increase my physical capacity to enjoy my passion for dance, and last (but not least) I want to have children in a few years but first I want to have been at a healthy weight and shape.
I feel so positive about my new membership with Goodlife. I want to take this momentum and add it to building a crucial element of any weight loss journey- believing you will do it.
I have struggled so much with believing I can get to my goal over many years. But I bring with me all the knowledge I gained over the years of what works for me.
I now work out at the Athletic Club; I'm loving aquafit, dance and yoga. I work to balance a frequently stressful job, connecting with family and friends (neither live nearby) and enjoying and appreciating everyday life with my spouse and our pets. I recently went to a Zumba class when I hadn't been in months and had SO MUCH fun. Cheers!

    Thanks for asking! I'm finally feeling better. I still struggle with some stomach issues but I knew that I had issues in addition to gallbladder. I'm still on the search for having a consistent nutrition plan that I can stick with daily that won't cause the stomach upset.

    I've actually signed up to be a BB coach as well. LOL. I can't wait for my first program to arrive.

    Without obstacles, how will you ever know what you are capable of? Give yourself a new set of challenges and set a goal. You will be surprised what you can do!

    Sometimes the biggest source of inspiration come from the person you see in the mirror everyday. Look yourself in the face and remember, you ARE worth it!

    Happy Monday!

    Thanks so much for the kind words on my blogs!! Maintaining even when you aren't at goal is a huge accomplishment. Keeping off any amount of weight is not easy at all! So be proud of yourself for that! It sounds like you are ready to move forward again and get closer to your goals. You can do this!! emoticon
