Welcome to SparkPeople!

Are you competitive by nature? One of my daily goals is to hit 100 SparkPoints. When I do that, I've not only read articles, I've interacted with other members by reading and commenting on their blogs and writing my own blog. 100 points gets me here and gets me active each and every day.

When I started, I made the commitment to workout daily and write a blog about it. On days when I don't feel like doing it, I think about the blog I need to write and I certainly do NOT want to write that I was lazy and did not work out.

Maintain your goals on your SparkPage (that's what all the goal-setting gurus write about) and make the goals public on your page. Write about it on your blog every day.

Weight loss = calorie maintenance, cardio, and strength. Calorie maintenance is every day, cardio is at least five days per week, and strength is 3 to 4 days per week. I believe you need all three for a successful weight loss and fitness program.

Above all, be consistent. Doing something toward you goal every day will pay big rewards over the next few months. You can do this!

I wish I could say this was my first time trying to diet and lose weight. Or that I haven't lost lots of weight just to gain it all back again (plus some!)

But I can say that this is the heaviest I have been and I refuse to get into a size 18 pants even when my size 16 are cutting of the circulation to my lower half.

I am not looking for miracles. I am looking to change the way I look and feel. I want to not hide away from mirrors or cameras. To not cringe when I see someone tagged me in a picture on facebook. I am also looking to cross a few items off of my bucket list like having kids, running a 5k or talking a fitness class. I want to go swimming in my new pool without being that girl that wears shorts and t-shirt over their swimsuit.

Feeling achy, having no energy and having bad skin isn't what I want being in my 20's. I want to look and feel healthy. Where walking around the mall doesn't cause me to sweat through my shirt or going upstairs feels like I just ran a marathon.

I am looking to love myself.

Sweat is just your fat crying.
