My Goals:
To not be the fat one in the family photos;
Stop avoiding family gatherings and parties because I'm unhappy with my looks;
Spend more time quilting;
Spend less time thinking about food;
Spend more time riding my bike;
Keep logging my food into the Nutrition tools;
Get some fitness points everyday (no matter how few);
Finish more quilt projects;
Blog once a week on SparkPeople and The Quilt Doctor;
Get back on the wagon when I fall off;
Seek help from SparkPeople when my motivation sags;
Worry less about keeping everyone else happy;
AND
Spend more time doing what I want!

Growing up, I was a skinny kid. I started to fill out in high school, and although I wasn't skinny anymore, I was at a good size. Then came college, marriage, motherhood and the weight kept sneaking up about 5 pounds a year. By 2000 I was over 200 pounds. When I peaked at 212 (about 2004) I joined weight watchers and got down to 172 lbs. I made the classic mistake of thinking I could do it on my own. So, gradually the weight came back and after Christmas 2009, I hopped on the scale and was at 198. I know I didn't want to ever see 200 again and I didn't want to spend the money to rejoin WW, so I searched the web and found SparkPeople.

    "Beautiful Woman Award! Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the wall of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out"
