I am still trying to get rid of that stubborn "last 10 (20) pounds". I really need a kick in the butt. Have been on SP since June of 2009 and have gone from about 160 pounds at heaviest to 115 pounds at lightest and let the weight sneak back on up to about 140 again. I am trying to get back to the 120-125 range. I am also trying to let go of the past, keep the good memories and expel the rest.

I have found such great support and friendship here at Spark and hope that I have returned those qualities to the community. If I can do this anyone can. Remember veggies are our friends ;)
My motto:

�I don�t know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everybody.�

Putting it here so I can look at it each day and remember it.

A quote to help me focus on things:

"Finish each day
And be done with it.
You have done what you could.
Some blunders and
Absurdities have crept in.
Forget them as soon as you can."

My Goals:

Still looking to get to 120-125, no idea what I weigh currently as I don't own a scale and don't like going to the walk-in clinic to borrow theirs.

How I'm going to get there: Walk, walk, walk. I will also throw in some cardio workouts I find online.

I'm hoping to go from 147 pounds to about 130 in the next 6 months.

**March 24, 2010**
To maintain my weight in and around the 120 pound mark.

***Revised Goal- to get to 120 lbs. by December 15th, 2009.***

***Another revision on my goal. I want to reach 120 lbs. by my birthday in January (I think the 120 by Dec. 15th was a bit ambitious)***

Reached 127 lbs on Dec. 14, so original goal met!

Reached 120 lbs on March 8, 2010. Didn't reach before my deadline but I am HAPPY!!

My Program:
Right now I am using a combination of walking and online videos.

Personal Information:
I am from British Columbia, Canada, married with 2 girls and 2 cats. I have a love of all things Zelda and Mario.

Other Information:
I love to knit, crochet, read and I also enjoy cross stitch and video games. My favorite author is Stephen King. My favorite games are for the Wii and the Nintendo DS. My favorite time of year is Hallowe'en and the heart of autumn in general (October is my favorite month).
