I need to lose weight to be healthy. Of course I want to look better and feel better about myself, but I know that obesity causes a lot of problems in life that can be reversed without all the extra weight. Now that I've had a section of my colon removed and gained back all the weight from when I was sick, I know that I need to get my mind set in the right place. I also want to set a great example for my 10 year old son. He always wants to know if what he is eating is healthy, so I want to be able to consistently say YES, and feel good about the choices I am offering him. I have been thin, average, overweight, and considered obese. I have been working on this journey for many years and I am hoping that 2013 is the year for me to take control of my health! We just adopted a super adorable dog, so maybe with his help, I will become active, fit and healthy!

Member Since: 5/24/2008

Fitness Minutes: 716

My Goals:
To finally get to a healthy weight.

To make exercise cooking healthy meals a part of my lifestyle so that I don't remember my life any other way.

To work hard now for great rewards later.

To be happy in my own skin and stop complaining about my reflection in the mirror!

My Program:
EXERCISE: Cardio, yoga and a bit of strength training.

NUTRITION: Basically follow Canada's Food Guide plus 8 cups of water daily.

Personal Information:
I work 4 days/week in an office, I have an eight-year old son and a husband who works continental shifts, so routine, as much as I CRAVE IT, doesn't really happen in my house anymore.

I live in Southern Ontario, Canada.

    thanks for the comment on my blog. you hit it on the nose - I got to a certain point and I was content with mediocrity.

    I read another blog post today where her trainer asked her what her level of commitment was on a scale of 1 - 10. She replied an 8. The trainers response: Then you will have an 8 out of 10 body. You will never have a 10 if you are not fully committed.

    I hope you have a happy healthy weekend!
