OK...back to the drawing board. After losing 26 pounds in 2007, work and stress have recently prompted me to fall off the wagon (in fact, I think I kind of jumped off the wagon!). Fortunately, I know when I get this far off, I NEED SPARKPEOPLE!

My Plan: To log my meals and exercise and hopefully that will get me back on track.

I've left the stuff down below because it motivates me to see how far I have come. And for now, I really need some motivation!


I really enjoyed a recent quote in a SparkPeople e-mail...
"Stop living life for what's around the corner and start enjoying the walk down the street. " So, I'm going to start "enjoying my walk" and make a list of my recent firsts that have started happening since I've started SparkPeople...

Nov 7, 2007.....wore a medium t-shirt for the first time since I don't know when without everything BULGING out!

Nov 13, 2007.....jogged 2 miles without walking for the first time in my ENTIRE life. (I was a sprinter in track and always managed to get a little bit of walking in when we did those long jogs at the beginning of the season!)

Nov 14, 2007.....purchased some new dress pants, Size 10, down from a 14! Last time I wore size 10 pants was for a short time about 6 years ago!

Nov 19, 2007...jogged 2.25 miles without walking for the first time in my life!

Feb 23, 2008...climbed the First National Bank Building in downtown Omaha (40 floors, 870 steps in 9:54!!!)
