My name is Jackie, and I'm becoming TERRIFICLY FIT! I've been a SparkPeople member since 2008, and now I'm here again for another round. I've had a complicated past four years, but now it's time to shed the skin my past self and emerge healthier than ever before.

Member Since: 5/30/2008

Fitness Minutes: 76,317

My Goals:
My overall long-term goal is to stay healthy and fit the rest of my life. My long-term goal weight-wise is to have lost at least 37 lbs total from my highest weight in Feb. 2018. I started this process in Feb. 2018 and lost 23 lbs by end of 2018. While I gained 13 lbs back by mid 2019, I plan on losing at least 15 by end of 2019. Then that leaves the final 12 pounds for 2020. Slow and steady wins the race!

My Program:
1. Log food 7x
2. Eat within daily goal of 1400-1550 calories 6x
3. 2x cardio intervals, 1x steady cardio, 2x strength training
4. Drink 8+ cups of water 7x

Personal Information:
Originally from Fredericksburg, VA, I've lived in four different countries and several different states. Most recently I lived in Lima, Peru for 4 years. I have my own small business, a language institute, in San Diego. I was formerly on the liver transplant waiting list and hope to never return to the waiting list. Getting healthier and fitter will definitely help me to stay off it!

Other Information:
11/20/11 Nextel 10k Lima Peru - ~1:35:00
2/13/11 Coronado Island Valentine's Day 10k - ~1:40:00
9/11/10 SandPit 5k - 1:02:45

    Hi there,

    We are on 2 of the same SP teams and I also recently finished a lifelong graduate school goal (MS in Nursing for me).

    Congratulations on your degree and good luck with your goals!
