Since joining SparkPeople I have come to learn that my life and my destiny is in my own hands. Relying on others to make me lose weight, get a new job, or be happy won't get me anywhere. I got off the couch to lose weight, well now I'm kicking myself in the butt to strive to be happy through and through. Your biggest supporter can be you own worst enemy....YOURSELF! I will no longer blame anyone else for my misfortune and will get out there and change my life to be the best it can be on my own. I want so much and I'm going to get it!

* I'm DONE feeling sorry for myself because I can't buy cute clothes.
* I'm DONE being to tired to get outside on a beautiful day and playing with my son.
* I'm DONE shying away from my fiance touches my belly because I'm embarassed at how big it is.
* I'm DONE making excuses why I can't exercise.
* I'm DONE saying, "Run? I wouldn't run for my life!"
* I'm DONE looking at people that are in shape and saying, " I wish I looked half as good as that."

I'm DONE! There is so much I want that I've been too chicken to go out and work hard for:
* I want to be able to walk into any store and buy a cute outfit and not worry that they don't carry it in my size.
* I want to wear a bikini.
* I want to get married and look at my wedding pictures and think how amazing I look.
* I want to wear a dress that stops traffic for my 30th birthday.
* I want to walk down the strip in Vegas and have my fiance think, " She is so much hotter than any of these women."
* I want to be a MILF
* I want to be able to wear shorts and a tank top in the summer without tugging them down because my thighs are showing too much.
* I want to run a 5k, then a 10k, and someday a marathon.
* I want to inspire someone.

I want to be better than I've ever been! And I will! Because the only thing holding me back from being able to have it all is me, and I'll kick my own ass to make sure that won't happen anymore!

My Goals:
My goals have changed since I've started this journey. I want to lose weight, and I want to look good, but more importantly, I want to be at a healthy weight and feel healthy. And I want to lose the weight and lose it for good. Slow and steady wins the race, so that's the way I'm going to go.

* Drink 108 oz of water daily.
* Do vigorous workout at least 30 minutes 5 times a week.

Short Term Goals:

October 2010-
* Lose 8 lbs- DONE!

November 2010-
* Lose 8 lbs-DONE!

December 2010-
* Lose 8 lbs - DONE!

January 2012-
* Lose 8 lbs- DONE!
I want to be under 200lbs by February of 2012.

February 2012:

* Lose 8 lbs- DONE!

My Program:
I have come to realize that everything you eat affects you. I try to stick to healthier meals and not eat out. I have completely stopped drinking soda of any kind because it's empty calories. I drink water like a madwoman and aim to get at least 30 minutes of cardio 5 days a week.

Personal Information:
I'm originally from Chicago. I'm a huge goofball and am usually always willing to make a fool out of myself to make someone I care about happy. I love my family, I love animals, and I love meeting new people!

Other Information:
I LOVE MUSIC, movies, books, spending quality time with the ones I love and going to Las Vegas whenever I can.

    I would love to get together some time! That would be awesome! The next few weeks are crazy for me, but mid-July through most of August are pretty wide open, at least as far as I know.

    The wedding sounds incredible, I love all the pics you posted! You look so beautiful and happy!!

    Thanks for the encouragement about school, I'm actually pretty nervous about it. I haven't been in school since I was working on my associates degree back in 2003, and I didn't finish it. I felt old compared to most of the other students then, I'm a lot older now. Nursing sounds great for you, and working on the pre-reqs online is a great idea!

    Yay! Glad that you're back! You're doing better than I am...I managed to gain back basically all of the weight I had lost between some pretty serious depression last fall and the time we spent out in Las Vegas this past winter/spring. Back on track now and moving in the right direction again.

    We moved back to Madison, WI and are buying a house, plus I'm starting back to school in the fall as part of a transfer program at the local community college to eventually go to UW-Madison and get my BS in Dietetics. The goal being to become a registered dietician. :)

    How have you been? How was the wedding? Your summer so far? Hope all is well!!
