August 2, 2012:
This has been a terrible year. I'm focusing on recovery and just trying to survive.

July 3, 2011:
I have maintained my weight loss from a year ago, but still have 20 lbs to go. I've lost 30.2 pounds since May of 2010. I've run a 5K and a Triathlon. I'd like to run a 10K, 1/2 marathon and maybe even a full marathon. I'd also like to compete in two triathlons. I found a swimming club to join and I'm excited for the last half of the year.

July 16, 2010:
I have changed my goals after losing 62 lbs since December 2009. I am now in a healthy BMI and I have less than 40 lbs to go so I am setting goals that are built on my early weight loss achievements but start from when I started adding exercise into my weight loss program (May 9th, 2010). Since then, I have lost 24 lbs and close to 14 inches all over, and I went from a size 16 to an 8! I can run 3 miles (9:30 min/miles is the current personal best), swim 2800 meters, and spin for an hour. I am looking to build in stregth training other than my 18 pound lifts at home (picking up my I am always looking for SparkFriends and I love reading blogs.

I am the proud mother of two, one who is 4 years old and a 7-month old. I gained 90 pounds during my first pregnancy and I lost all 90 plus 20 more over a year and it was perfect. Then, I gained back 35 lbs while finishing my degree, moving to Houston and starting a new job. Next, we decided to have another child... and 65 MORE pounds later my second daughter was born. Now, I am determined to get back to where I was after the first child.

    Hey! How's it going?
    I have to say I really love your profile pic... looks like you're having a good time!

    I can't believe you went from a size 16 to a size 8! That is incredible! I was an 18 after pregnancy and am just now into a 14. If you don't mind, send some of those skinny vibes my way!

    About your question on the shred check in thread. I commited to doing it every day that I can. I only missed one day in a row because of a very sore hip muscle. The type of soreness was a warning soreness and not the kind of sore from just working out. Took one day off to baby it and got right back into the Shred. But everyone is different. And everyone sets their own goals and does the Shred at their own pace. I would say from reading the entries---that a good portion of the posters on that thread are doing it either everyday or 5+ times a week. Hope that helps! Have a great day!

    Yay for new buddies! We do have a lot in common! I can't believe how much has changed for me since I joined Sparkpeople! I'm off this morning to run a race in my neighborhood! Woot! Keep up the good work, and chat me up if you need any support or a friend! :)
