My name is Marie. I've been on SparkPeople since September 2009 but haven't been as much of a regular as I used to be. I can say the same about my gym dedication. I went from going 6-7 days a week to skipping whole weeks at a time or going a mere 1 day per week. My cardio is nothing like it used to be, neither is my weight lifting regimen. Sadly, neither is my body.

The tiny, 115 pound me is gone - but not for good. I've been struggling for close to a year now, slowly gaining almost all of the weight back that I worked so hard to lose. My motivation is practically diminished and with each passing day, I see more and more pounds adding up.

I have to put a stop to it and I've said it so many times before but it has to start somewhere. I have new goals and because 2011 is here (and I just booked a trip to the Bahamas for June!) I have to take back control of my life, my eating habits and my body..

My Goals:
I really want to be down to 115 pounds and have a toned stomach. I want to consistently feel good about myself and never feel fat or large ever again.

My Program:
I am rededicating myself to the gym and a healthy way of life. My diet consists of mostly fruits and veggies with lean proteins. I am getting my butt back to the gym and taking hot yoga as well.

Personal Information:
My name is Marie. I'm from Boston, Massachusetts and I recently graduated from Assumption College in Worcester, MA. I am a long-time competitive dancer and I dance professionally for a traveling company during the summer.

Other Information:
I love to dance, perform, cook, read, write and try my own recipes, spend a lot of time with my family, boyfriend and best friends. I appreciate good wine and good chocolate. I love to sleep but I don't get enough of it. I work 2 jobs and hope to go to frad school next year.

    good, i'm glad to hear things are okay for you, that stinks about the weather there though.. yesterday we actually got hit with snow but it wasnt a whole lot so i can still get out.

    here's the hCG story.. did that round the first time after you did it, then went crazy with reintroducing foods back in- and thanksgiving- and pretty much gained everything back about a month after i got to my goal weight emoticon

    so i decided i was going to do another round and could only make it for like 18 days before my arms were going numb and i was out of breath walking up a flight of stairs so i cut it short and lost about 10 lbs... since then i've gained back about 4 lbs but i'm pretty comfy at this weight so i'm just trying the clean eating/exercise approach to see if i can get off anymore.

    actually, your comment came at the right time- last night i had a pretty bad PMS sugar splurge and today i'm getting back on track.

    how is life post-HCG for you? any new years resolutions?
