10/12/11: I have lost 127 pounds using Spark! I had a slight setback in October 2011 with a pregnancy that didn't work out, but I realized that I cannot put my life on hold! I gained a few pounds during the pregnancy (15) and I am back to take those pounds off plus the rest of weight I need to lose!


8/18/11 Spark is a life saver! I have lost 127 pounds using the Spark website and I couldn't be more thrilled with my progress! However, I am taking a break from "weight loss" to focus on a healthy pregnancy. I found out on 8/3/11 that I am expecting my third wonderful child! My husband and I are so happy with this somewhat unexpected little miracle. I had told my husband that we would "try" to have another child until I was 34... after that , I didn't want to risk it. Two months away from my 34th birthday, I find out that I am pregnant! :) So Spark will help me stay accountable in my workouts and eating properly, but I am focusing on health and not weight loss. I'm still on this journey, so join me!


Original:
Hi! I'm Amanda and I am here to prove to myself that I can take this weight off... again! I lost 98 pounds a few years ago and put it back on and then some! I had a daughter in May 2010 and the day I walked in to deliver I was 354 pounds! Of course some was baby :) Anyway, when I started concentrating on losing again, my "starting weight" was 322. I can do this again... I know I can!


Member Since: 5/20/2008

Fitness Minutes: 68,134

My Goals:
My goals are to lose to a healthy weight and to feel great! I want to live a long life with my wonderful husband, two perfect daughters, and my beloved dog! :)

I currently have about 40-50 pounds to lose. I plan to take this in 10 pound increments!


My Program:
I eat 1200-1500 gluten free calories per day and try to workout 45-60 minutes daily. I rest on Sundays. For workouts, I tend to gravitate to kickboxing- Tae Bo and Tapout! I have done P90X, P90X2, Insanity, Insanity Asylum Vol. 1, Insanity Asylum Vol. 2, Tapout XT, Tapout XT2 and T25. I am currently working on P90X3! Of them all, Tapout is my favorite!



Personal Information:
I am from Texas but live in Upstate New York. And by Upstate NY, I do not mean 5 miles North of the City! LOL I am WAY Upstate in the Adirondack Mountains about 2 hours from Canada!


Other Information:
I am very involved in my community. I am a volunteer EMT, President of my Ambulance Squad, member of my local Planning Board, chairperson to a subcommittee of that board, a board member for our local Arts Center, and treasurer for the local business association (like a chamber of commerce). So as you can see, I like to stay involved! ;)

    emoticon Hello
    I am Mic I was hoppin past your wonderful page, and I see how hard you have been working. We would like you to come join us on the QUICK FIRE team.

    It is first of all FUN, second it is NOT a boot camp type ... it is about adding a few extra things to your day to give you a BIG advantage in reaching your goals..... Everyone has a few minutes they can QUICK FIRE through the day. If you spend your day at a desk, take a few minutes every 2 hours to get up, get moving and get closer to a body you can be proud of. You will return to your desk refreshed, with more mental clarity and a renewed sense to continue working knowing you are closer to reaching your fitness goals. Giving your metabolism a QUICK FIRE boost several times through the day, adds up to more fat burning.

    WARNING!! It is proven that QUICKFIRING can lead to a HOT BODY!
    I dare you to come join us!
    What do you have to lose?
    So please come check out the team and the daily challenges... www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/groups_i
