After almost 3 years of nearly a completely sedentary lifestyle, I am ready to get back into moving. I want to be a runner and a racer for me. I am tired of being uncomfortable in my skin. I have officially started a new diet and a new training program. I have my eyes set on a goal and feel like there is nothing that can stand in my way!!

Rev 2010:
Been gone a while and it shows in a bad way. I'm gonna get back to what works - SparkPeople!

Rev 2 : I am offically 40 now and packing what I feel is a LOT of extra weight. I have not worked out in almost a year (stopped after getting bruised ribs from doing a front flip off my bike :) ) and eating out way to often. I have two jobs: the bill payer and the self-employed one with my husband, which takes up any and all free time. Still have two active teenagers at home that keep me busy as well.

Now that I have all of my excuses on paper (of a sort), it's time to push them aside and get in gear.

Rev 1: "I’m a soon to be 39 mother of 2 (18 & 12) and step mom to 1 (15). I live on a weight roller coaster, constantly up and down. I’ve tried every fad diet out there and have come to learn that only one thing actually works. Eat less and Move more. I love spark people because it allows me to keep track of what I am doing and offers me advice, encouragement and a feeling that I’m not alone in this battle. My true goal is to be happy with my body and feel good about myself. " (original intro)

My Goals:
To rid myself of the second set of breast that appear when I sit between my real ones and my tummy. (And wouldn't you know they are bigger than the real ones!)

My Program:
For now I am going to concentrate on eating healthier foods and hopefully get some exercise at least once a week. Yes I know that seems like nothing but if you were in my shoes....

Personal Information:
I'm 40 working mother of two, 20 (out the nest & 14, plus a step (16). I live in southeast Louisiana where we wear shorts all year long!!

Other Information:
I like riding my bikes and doing 5ks and adventure racing. Although right now all I do work. Oh yeah, and since my fav sis-in-law has moved home I drink beer WAY too much!

    I just tried again and got the same thing. I try to put it as 5'1 and it says NaN in the fields so I am putting it in inches and it says 838 in the Target Daily Caloric Intake to Achieve Weight Loss Goal.

    If you have a second you could try and see no biggie if you can't I just don't get why it is giving me that #! I am 26 146 lbs Female 61 inches (5'1") weekly mileage is 10-29 and body fat is 28.0-37.9 60/15/25 and 2 lbs goal a week.

    Thank you for your help.

    Thank you. I appreciate your comment. Maybe that is what I need "motherly" advice period let alone advice that understands. You are being caring not intruding.

    I went and though I was confused I didnt know what #'s to put (like athletic, low carb, and etc) it told me Target Daily Caloric Intake to
    Achieve Weight Loss Goal is 838?? Uh doesnt that mean I should only eat that much? It says I burn 1838 a day (which I doubt) and I put 2 lbs a week goal and that is what it told me.
