Profile Information

About Me:
I am a mother of three children - ages 4, 6, and 8. I have a husband, one cat and a full time job. Life is busy but I like it that way most of the time.

I have a long history of weight loss stories I could share from Weight Watchers several times, grapefruit diets, soup diets...etc. After having three kids, I packed on the weight and lost myself. I wasn't really ready to lose the weight until I heard a motivational speech by Michael Pinball Clemons. I realized through his speech that I was afraid to lose weight. Sounds crazy but I realized I was afraid of the commitment it takes. What if I failed? Was I ready for it? I set a date and in September 2007 I started on my way. So far I have lost 30 lbs. It has been a struggle this go around. My weight loss has been turtle slow compared to the other times I have been on the WW program. That's okay though. I am trying this time to make this my last time losing weight. More recently, I stopped going to WW meetings because I am finding that this is not working any longer for me. I would prefer to put this money in to my exercise that I have currently ramped right up. I am still being accountable to myself and have wonderful supports around me.

I found Roni which has really helped this last journey of mine. So here I am following her around...

I am excited to be here.
Plan of Choice:
Weight Watchers
Workout Philosophy:
I'm a Running Fanatic

I am back because going away only allows weight gain....

Goals for today & this week (September 27-October 3)
1) drink so much water that I want to burst
2) attend boot camp class twice Mon/Wed
3) go for a long run (7K) on Sunday
4) stretch regularly
5) run two other times during the week (Tuesday & Friday)
6) get lots of rest
7) eat lots of veggies
8) watch caloric intake - not sure how to do this now that I am not on WW per say but I will figure it out - may journal points...may just try and keep it in my head - not sure...
9) wi today and then wi on next Saturday - keep track of weight

I decided to stop going to WW meetings.

I have made a big decision that I feel good about. I have decided to no longer attend WW meetings. I was going every Saturday morning with my awesome friend and both of us just didn't get out of it what we did the first year or so that we attended. I have been out of esteem when it comes to the program for a while and I think a lot of it has to do with just having lost the commitment to weighing in - that doesn't make sense...I can't explain it. I just feel so much pressure knowing that I have… Continue

I was so happy to step on the scale and find out this week that I lost 2.8lbs. I can't believe that the scale has moved finally after weeks of gaining while eating on program and exercising more intensely than I have in years. I learned a few things. I was drinking too much diet pop. I love pop even. I realized that with the increase in exercise my muscles are pulling the water out of my system to repair my muscle. I wasn't drinking enough water and the pop was not helping. Pop has… Continue
