I'm 120 pounds lighter and all the soreness, the hunger and the worry about how I was ever going to live without my favorite foods has been worth it.

Member Since: 7/11/2007

Fitness Minutes: 5,618

My Goals:
Long term goal: To eventually get down to about 145 pounds. I have never been lighter than 180 pounds as an adult and I can't wait to see that weight come off and stay off for good!

Short term goal: 5 pounds lost by my birthday, June 18.

My Program:
60 minutes of cardio seven days a week with three strength training sessions each week. Journaling food intake and trying to stay below 1500 calories for now.

Personal Information:
I am a reporter and an editor at a 30,000-circulation daily newspaper in North Texas. I was born and raised here and spent time during my college years in New Orleans before returning to Texas to be with my family and the love of my life. I love to write, read, cook, hike, snorkel, scuba dive, and watch movies.

Other Information:
"If you have made mistakes, even serious ones, there is always another chance for you. What we call failure is not the falling down but the staying down."

-Mary Pickford

I love this quote. When I saw it, I thought, "This is SOO For me!!"

Every time I've tried to lose weight in the past I have failed. And sometimes I feel like quitting now. But I know that I'm worth it, every sweaty minute of it. Each time I feel like I can't go on any longer, or that I have gone down an irrevocable path from which I cannot return, I remember there are a heck of a lot of other Sparkers out there who are the same way I am and it really does make me feel better. Thanks team!
