Hello All, My Name is Kelly Mahoney and I live in Central Florida. I consider myself an aspiring ragamuffin. Not ragamuffin as in a cat or a rag picker or something, but a ragamuffin as defined below:

ragamuffins--The unsung assembly of saved sinners who are little in their own sight, conscious of their brokenness and powerlessness before God, and who cast themselves on His Mercy!!! (Brennan Manning, The Ragamuffin Gospel)


Join me in the Journey!!!


Member Since: 1/4/2011

Fitness Minutes: 40,898

My Goals:
Be able to walk and run without my thighs rubbing together and chafing.

Increase endurance when running so that I can sustain a running pace for 60 minutes.

Learn to keep my core activated, and carry myself with better posture.


My Program:
I am tracking food, exercise, and water intake.

I am STILL nursing an aggravated foot so exercise is nore challenging than ever. I am committed to 10+ minutes ST a day and 20 minutes cardio.

I am working on establishing a more regular sleep cycle. My goal is to get a minimum of 6 hrs sleep at night.

I am making it a point to connect with each of my Spark Teams at least two times per week, and each of my Spark Friends at least once a week.

Spark On!!!

    Give yourself a healthy weight pep talk today:

    Whenever I sit down to eat, I am determined to achieve my goal. By never giving in and eating right, I will reach my healthy weight.

    I really enjoy eating less, whether in a restaurant or at home. I don’t have to finish the food in front of me anymore. I eat what I should and never one bite more.

    When there is less food on my plate, there is less food on my fork. By ordering less when I eat out and giving myself small portions at home, it keeps me aware of staying with my goal each day. Less on my plate means less on my waist.

    I will not allow anyone to influence, tempt, or discourage me in any negative way. Reaching my goal is up to me. No one has the right to control my success.

    I am losing weight for my own reasons; for my life, my future, my personal health. No one will tempt me to take one more bit than I should. I am strong. I can reaching my goal.

    A lot of food in front of me is no longer a problem. I just say no to the food and yes to my success.

    I enjoy sitting down to eat because it gives me time to conquer my past and create a more active, self-confident, and healthier future.

    I don’t need someone else to remind me of my goal or to keep me from eating something I shouldn’t. I’m responsible for myself and my body. No one can do it for me.

    It’s easy for me to control my weight and appetite now. I enjoy smaller portions and smaller bites. I eat slower and am more relaxed in every way.

    I am healthier.

    Mealtime is achievement time for me."
