I am still here! I didn't utilize sparkpeople for a while, but I really love being able to log my food and exercise :)
I am right back where I started as far as my weight loss goes...I was sick last year and lost weight really quickly, then I slacked off for a while and slowly gained some back. Then around november I tried to get myself motivated to lose the weight for my 30th birthday and instead packed on 15lbs! So I got to my highest weight ever and now I know I need to be focused to get this off. I am workin on refining my eating and working out program. I am training for my first 5k, and am really excited about it!

Member Since: 4/27/2009

My Goals:
I am 5'3 so when I entered my weight in I was officially "Obese!"....Needless to say I was shocked. So my goal is to get to a healthy BMI. I am going to work on 5lb increments and give myself a reward :) Along the way I want to improve my quality of life: exercise more, cultivate a love of running, eat healthier ( I love to cook already, its just a matter of tweaking thing to a little more healthy) and feel confident about my appearance.

My Program:
1. Track Calories eaten
2. Track Exercise
3. 30-45 min of cardio at least 3 times a week, up to 5
4. Weight Train at least 2 times a week up to 4
5. Eight glasses of water a day
6. Eat my fruits and Veggies, 5 servings a day
7. Get my fiber in!

Personal Information:
I am a homeschooling mother of three. I love hanging out with my family, and reading a good book.

Other Information:
Love my husband and kids :) Stay busy at home and with my kids and husband and also spend alot of time with my mom and siblings :) Live in a small town and love it! I love going to the library, walking by the river, going camping with my family and trying out things with my mom! Planning on doing a square foot garden this year in hopes that I can do better than last year!

    Heyllo Sexy Team!!

    Stacey has added me as a co-leader to help with our New Challenge. It will be a mini Jumpstart Challenge, and it will begin Wednesday, June 1st.

    Every Wednesday I will send out a Spark Goodie to each member of our Team who participates. One goodie for every 5 pounds we lose as a TEAM. Meaning, we'll get a goodie no matter what our weigh-in is -- as long as the total pounds lost for the team is 5!! Each pound we lose as individuals will add to the Team's Total. Who knows, maybe some weeks we'll get more than one 5 pound goodie!!

    Each week in June will follow a different theme to help Jumpstart our Summer Weight Loss.

    T - Tracking - Week 1 (June 1 - 7)
    E - Exercise - Week 2 (June 8 - 14)
    A - Attitude - Week 3 (June 15 - 21)
    M - Motivation - Week 4 (June 22 - 28)

    We'll work on Tracking our Food the first week of our Mini Challenge. Spark People has updated the Nutrition Tracker, and it is much more user friendly now! WooHoo!

    Our First Weigh-in will be Wednesday, June 1st (or as close to that date as possible for those of us with different weekly weigh-ins.)

    Our Final Weigh-in will be Wednesday, June 29th (or Thursday June 30th in case anyone's a day late, lol)

    I'm excited to start this New Challenge. I know I do a lot better while participating in a Team Effort!

    Thanks Everyone,
    ~ Sonia ~
