Why "Be7"? Because 7 is the mystical number of fulfillment--there are 7 colors of the rainbow, 7 musical notes, God rested on the 7th day, etc. It's also considered a "lucky" number in many cultures. So, I want to "Be 7." Make sense?

My Goals:
My goal is to live a healthier lifestyle, and lose 45 pounds by the end of June 2014, and another 45 pounds by my birthday in December of 2014.

What does it mean to live a healthier lifestyle? To drink more water, get more sleep, eat less sugar and fat, and exercise daily. I know that if I can do these things for the rest of my life, I can lose the weight and keep it off.

I now have another goal: To become a Spark People Motivator!

My Program:
Move as much as possible. Track my food and water. Sleep 7 hours a night minimum.

Personal Information:
Call me B7. I live in Ohio with my dear husband (DH) and 10-yr-old daughter. (See gallery pics.) But my heart is actually in Philadelphia. DH's heart is in San Diego. But we're here in Ohio making the best of it. My folks live here, so that's a big advantage (and the reason we're here).

My profile image is of me at my absolute thinnest weight since puberty, taken at age19, 28 years ago. Size 12. You can't really tell when the pic is so tiny, but at 5'8" with very broad shoulders and big bones, I was actually skinny then at 145 lbs, and it was my lowest weight--30 pounds down from the 175 lbs I weighed at age 13! I know I'll never look like I did at 19, but I can get to the same weight or close, and that's my goal.

Other Information:
I intend to post pics of my weight loss progress as I lose more weight and become less camera shy.
