Hi I am Amy. I have always thought that the eyes truly are the window to the soul. They are a very beautiful part of who we are, not only on the outside but on the inside too! That is why I chose to title my page "Eyes on the Prize". If you look into someone's eyes you look past all of their outside imperfections and just deep into their soul. That's where the substance of a person really lies. I feel like my eyes tell everyone how I feel. Lately they have been kind of sad because to me, my weight has kept me from meeting my potential as a person. I am not so concerned about the "look" of being overweight (although I don't like the way I look when I carry extra weight) as I am the "implications" of being overweight. Being able to accomplish the things that I want to do in my life and staying healthy is important to me. Therefore, I must take the necessary steps to lose this weight and improve myself to be the best I can be! That's where the journey comes in. It is the prize. It is cherishing who and what we have, meeting new people, providing support to others in need, and taking the steps necessary to be healthier and happier. "It's up to YOU, Amy.
The journey is the prize."

My Goals:
10/4/06: I would like to reach 140 pounds by summer ''07. I would like to fit into a size 10 and become more physically fit. I would like to be able to put on a bathing suit and not feel terribly self conscious. I would like to be able to do some physically challenging and adventurous things like run a marathon, go snow skiing on a black diamond course out west and water ski again. I would like to be pretty again for my husband and be able to wear something sort of "sexy" :)

My Program:
I am doing LA weight loss AGAIN (started today 10/4/06)...but I know the program works for me and is a healthy and supportive way to lose weight. I love to walk outside and change to the treadmill in the winter.

Personal Information:
I am from Indianapolis and have lived her most of my life. I love INDY! I am a big COLTS and Notre Dame fan. I have a husband and 3 children who are the loves of my life. I am an animal lover as well and have 2 dogs and 2 bunnies. I am a nurse and work part time at a large hospital here in Indy in the PACU, after being in Open Heart Recovery for 20+ years. AND, I am INTENSELY patriotic! My favorite movie is: Chocolat' My favorite season is: football!! My favorite color is green and my favorite number is really 7 but during football season its 18. Please stop by and say HI!!! I love to make new friends from all over the world!

    I think the calorie chart I read for french fries was m,isleading, I've seen charts for fries later that weren't that scary lol. (BUT ....... I still know that fries are really bad so...well....maybe it's better to think they're 1000s of calories).

    I'm 99% sure I'm going with the Colts, I hate to be one of those people who jump on the bandwagon just because they're popular at the moment, but I really love everything I've seen & read about them as a team so far... & also once I pick a team I stick with them through thick & thin, win or lose, so ... :) I'll wear the logo on my car/shirt/baseball hat no matter what :)

    Cya in the sportsbar (& go ahead and have a french fry, altho I believe I'm saving my calories for the Guinnness....tee hee))
