In 2009 my doctor told me I would have to take cholesterol meds to lower my cholesterol and then when the Long Term Health Care application was rejected because I was 20 lbs over their limit, I knew it was time again to try to get to a healthier weight. Besides, I hated how I looked in a pic!
Really to stay motivated isn't very easy for me, I need a support system, and constant reminders. The weight creeps back in to my life when I don't keep my goals in check.
The SP Fitness Tracker is awesome, I love mapping the different routs we take. After logging my food I use the daily analysis, it is great to see that my eating and exercise was in sync or not!

Honestly, this journey of weight loss requires changing habits and that can be work, but with your self-commitment, you can get to your goal weight and achieve permanent lifestyle change. What rewarding work that will be!
Self-Commit because you believe: You can do it! You are worth the effort!
YOUR JOURNEY to a healthy weight is under YOUR control!
