I go through spurts on SparkPeople - and when I keep up with it, it really works. But I have a problem with laziness once I get to a certain point. So every few months I reset my goals and start over, which is what I just did. Hopefully this time it will stick!

Member Since: 1/27/2009

SparkPoints: 10,292

Fitness Minutes: 730

My Goals:
I want to get healthy, get fit, and break the poor eating habits I've established over the years. I want to force myself to like vegetables and quit the mindless snacking that always seems to want to be a part of my bedtime ritual.

My Program:
I am trying to make healthy lifestyle changes that I can stick to. As a veteran of the South Beach Diet (although I never got past the first 2 weeks, since the lack of carbs resulted every time in me passing out in the shower), I'm trying to incorporate some of those tips into my everyday life. I try to work out at least 3 times a week (having a job that requires me to wake up at 4 am doesn't make that easy, but I try). And though I'm surrounded on a daily basis by people who don't really care what they eat, how they look or how their health is holding up - and want me to be the same - I do my best to make smart choices whenever possible.

Personal Information:
I'm 32 years old and I live in Media, PA. I've been married since 2007.

Other Information:
I'm a historical fiction novelist writing under the pseudonym Courtney J. Hall.

Thanks for echoing my comment regarding pious attitudes. I must admit, I have several people in my life who adopt such a stance towards various food choices. - If ANYTHING that attitude turns people away from exploring healthy eating and any good example they could provide is lost in the process!
