When I was in college the "Freshman 15" became the "University 45." I was very chunky for being 5'1". I decided that needed to change. Using SparkPeople, I have lost 30 pounds. I am healthier and I feel better. I have managed to maintain the weight loss for the most part with no significant weight gain. I am still working on making everything an easy habit, and would like to lose a few more pounds.

Let's get fit and healthy!

Member Since: 1/23/2006

Fitness Minutes: 65,948

My Goals:
My short term goal is to be able to do a 5K in 30 min or less.

My long term goal is to get healthy and fit for life.

Mini Goals:
145: 2/8/09 DONE
140: 3/16/09 DONE
140: 6/7/10 DONE again
135: 2/7/11 DONE
130: 3/9/11 DONE
125: 12/21/12 DONE
125: 11/17/14 DONE again

My Program:
I am trying very hard to get a regular exercise routine. I have started running. I've done several 5Ks but now I want to step it up and train for something bigger. The plan is a regular running routine and add in some strength training and cross training. No excuses, just do it. I am also trying to cut out the junk and eat healthier, more fruits and vegetables, whole grains, lean protein, etc.

Personal Information:
My name is Rachel, I'm 30 and I'm in the Douglas/Paulding area. I'm just shy of 5'1". I'm married. I have a beautiful German Shepherd/Husky named Captain and a white German shepherd named Yuki. I love the out doors. I tend to be shy at first but I love meeting new people and warm up to them quickly. I like to sing and be creative. I don't like negativity or the incorrect use of the words your and you're. Bleh!

    Good luck! I'm job hunting no fun! Because of the major budget cuts to education, my job for next year is not secure. Boo! Way to go on the weight loss too! I'm stuck at 132, so you're totally gonna beat me to 125!

    Containers are GREAT ways to garden. Thanks for commenting on my page. I found a place that give free ideas. I just googled container gardening and liked some of the free ideas - thought I'd share them with you. Hey I'd love to go buy 1 tomato plant right now and put it in a container indoors, and by June have fresh tomatoes - its like defying Mother Nature in WInter. lol

    Good luck with your ideas.

    in loving kindness,
