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 baby...lol). I am always looking for SparkFriends and I love reading blogs.

BACKGROUND:
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.

    I saw your post on the 20 smoething page about "interrupting progress for 6 chips ahoy. Man those things are tempting. I hope that you just brush it off and get right back on that horse with renewed vigor. A quote I like when thinking of situations like this is as follows:

    "A fragment of a poem by Ralph Waldo Emerson is telling:

    'Finish each day
    And be done with it.
    You have done what you could.
    Some blunders and
    Absurdities have crept in.
    Forget them as soon as you can.'

    Move on with your life."

    You can do it!
