I joined in June of 2010 with the intention of losing weight (primarily) and getting healthier when I realized I had a significant birthday coming up and started to panic. However, I didn't panic enough, because I didn't really do anything weight-loss wise with the site until the end of August.

On August 28, 2010, I started the 20-Somethings with 100+ Pounds to Lose Biggest Loser Challenge. Thus, I consider August 28, 2010 my first day with Spark (even though SP won't let me change my start date). Since then, I have been making slow, but steady, progress toward my weight loss goal.

I wish everyone the best of luck on their journeys.

Member Since: 6/17/2010

Fitness Minutes: 11,605

My Goals:
Be fit
Be healthy
Be happy

Be able to wear Victoria's Secret underwear

Be able to clothes-shop with my friends (not just purse- and shoe-shop)

Lose ~150 pounds one pound at a time.

My Program:
I have increased my water intake. I now average 12-16 glasses a day!

I have cut soda out completely (last regular soda drank on 1/5/2011).

I pre-plan all of my meals at least the day before so that I stay within my intake goals.

I exercise at least a few times a week, primarily in the evening.

Focus on small goals: 10 pounds at a time.

Personal Information:
I am from a small town in Northern Colorado, but I love it here. I am centrally located to most of Colorado's largest cities--Ft Collins is 25 minutes away and Denver is only 45 minutes away. I am single and I don't have any kids (but, I do have a cat, so that's like half a kid, right?) I love to read and listen to music. I watch far more TV than could possibly be good for me. I enjoy movies (though not scary) and love to shop (though due to budget constraints I don't get to enjoy that particular activity nearly as often as I would like). Pretty boring, but that's me.

    I’ve belonged to a lot of teams here on spark-- i really do believe that the Emotional Eaters team is one of the very best, it’s a great group of people- very supportive and encouraging-- and it is very refreshing to talk with people who "get" what you're going through!! ¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥.*¸.•´¸.•*¨¸.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*¨) ¸.•*¨)
    Check out the main page of the EE team- there are “stickied” topics you may be interested in to get involved- a buddy thread, a place to introduce yourself, weigh-in challenge, a birthday post. ¸.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*¨(¸.•´ (¸.•´ (¸.•´¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥. ¸.•♥´ .•´¨¨ ¸´¸.•´¸.•*¨)¸¸.•´ ..•-~'¸.•*¨)
    Spark has a lot of great tools, and you will learn which ones work best for you. The best tools are the people tho, always willing to lend a hand, an ear, or a shoulder. I’ve been here for over a year now, and I still am overwhelmed, every day, by the kindness and goodness of others on this team!! That has made a world of difference for me. I hope you have the same success! ¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥.*.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*
