Welcome to my SparkPage!

Weight loss. As badly as I want it, I must not want it bad enough. The obstacles tend to kill my motivation and I fall back into old habits. And end up getting even heavier than before.

At the peak of my most meaningful transformation, when I was walking about 3 miles a day, usually, I got hurt. Awful pain in my legs that didn't go away for almost a week. On top of that, I started getting these horrible pains that would wake me out of a deep sleep. Apparently charlie horses of some sort, seemingly caused by a lack of potassium. All leading to a complete surrender. Transformation ceased.

But now, I'm back. Again. I weigh more than I did last time and am in even worse shape. I'm truly hoping I can turn it all around again and do things right this time. For myself, for my loved ones, for my future.

So, here's the breakdown:

Starting Weight: 260.8
First Goal Weight: 200
Date (given by SP): August 29, 2016

Member Since: 1/1/2015

My Goals:
1: Lose 80.6 pounds (250.6-170).
2: Get my asthma in control.
4: Get as far away from the threat of diabetes as possible!
5: Get my depression in check.
6: Get a better grip on the stressors in my life.

My Program:
I'm not in any exercise programs right now. I don't have the money for a gym membership, even at the Y. Even if I did, I doubt I'd have much time to spend there.

I occasionally do xbox Kinect's EA Active 2, but it's usually too brutal for me, due to just how badly I'm out of shape.

I'm hoping to find some sort of exercise program I can hold to during the winter, then once it warms up, I plan to take daily walks and, eventually, work my way to jogging.

I'm very interested in finding a decent yoga program, as well. Yoga has always fascinated me, but I feel like I am lost as to what I'm doing. I think I'd feel more comfortable with an instructor as I begin, so that they can walk me through the different positions and how to optimize my experience with it.

Personal Information:
I'm from Ohio, but reign from Florida. My birthday is 02/20. I am married to my best friend and we have the most amazing little girl. I never go a day without at least one smile, thanks to the two of them.

My (other) best friend lives on the other side of the country and my entire family (parents, siblings) live in Florida, so I'm pretty much alone here in Ohio.

    If you ever need any tips on knitting, let me know! I knit most nights and try to learn a new technique at least once a year (this year I have already learned mitered squares; last year I learned lace in the round and beaded knitting; 2013 was entrelac and brioche; 2012 was real lace; 2011 was lace with thicker yarns; 2010 was socks; 2009 was cables).

    Also, you can always lean on me with anything you may need at all! I've been on this site for a long, long time and can point you in the right direction with pretty much anything!

    So glad to see that I was right about your love of the language. I'm working on a book as we speak (modern fantasy, sort of like a cross between Laurell K Hamilton, Jim Butcher, and Stephen King's The Stand). God bless you and keep smiling! emoticon
