Pink Panthers for the Biggest Loser Fall Challenge!!

I am a panther, I am pink, and my name is Martha. I'm 27 years old, and living in Carlow, Ireland!

I've struggled with my weight all my life, and it's always been the excuse for, cause of or expression of other problems in my life. It's not just about my weight any more. My main goal now is to be happy. I'm tired of feeling out of control with my eating and exercise habits because of other things in my life. I'm tired of compromising and accepting things I don't actually have to accept!! I could be a LOT happier. I've used my weight as a yardstick for my happiness and it hasn't worked - it's just a number. It means nothing if I don't seriously look at my lifestyle. This time I think my happiness will be the yardstick for my overall health - I want to lead a healthy, happy and motivated life. No excuses. The time is always now!

Member Since: 7/13/2010

Fitness Minutes: 6,063

My Goals:
I want to get active - I want to increase my energy levels by increasing my stamina and fitness!

I want to be good to my body - I want to nourish it and feed it the way it needs to be fed.

I want to be happy - I want to know that I am doing something for myself and investing everything I can into the life I am living NOW - not just 100 pounds down the line.

EVENTUALLY I want to reach 140 lbs, but not before I am ready. I have so many goals on this journey, and each one is JUST as important. Small goals will lead to big achievements!

My Program:
I am staying accountable: I am tracking what I eat and how I exercise. I am also tracking other goals because this is about my life, not just my weight.

I am looking for support: I am letting my friends and family know what I am doing. I am not ashamed to admit that this is important to me, and I'm not afraid of making mistakes along the way. I want to involve them; it doesn't matter if they are more or less active than me!

I am getting busy: Too much of my time gets wasted waiting for things to happen. I want to be a busy person, I want to be involved in my life, not just an onlooker or critic. I have my times to rest and reflect but I seriously believe motivation is not something that comes before you do something, it comes in the process of doing something. The more I do, the more I get motivated.

Personal Information:

Other Information:
All my work, my life, everything is about survival. All my work is meant to say, "You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated".

    When you look in the mirror and see no change, and still keep faith, knowing that in time you will get there if you stay focused and on track, that’s the difference between those who succeed and those who fail.
    Ask yourself if what you’re doing today is getting you closer to where you want to be tomorrow.
