Ready For A Change

Hello! My name is Dre'a and I am here because I am ready for a change. I am tired of being obese and would like for a program that will work with me as I try to shed some weight and gain support every step of the way.

I am a 30 year old mother of an 8 year old son, who I love dearly and I have a loving partner who supports me in everything I do. This is my support circle and I would love to include them in my fight to become healthier.

Hello! My name is Dre'a and I am here because I am ready for a change. I am tired of being obese and would like for a program that will work with me as I try to shed some weight and gain support every step of the way.

I am a 30 year old mother of an 8 year old son, who I love dearly and I have a loving partner who supports me in everything I do. This is my support circle and I would love to include them in my fight to become healthier.

I have a loving family who is very supportive, however, we need more support that will help all of us become more active and allow us to motivate each other and shed some pounds. Although I am very educated in fitness and nutrition, I lack motivation and that's where I need support from other people that is beyond my circle of family and friends. I am willing to give Sparkpeople a try to see how this goes.

My Goals:
My overall goal is to lose at least 160 pounds, however, I am willing to try in small steps of 50 pound increments. I know that this will be a long journey and just as it took me over 10 years to get this heavy, I know it will take me some time to get it off. I am ready for a change and I am will to take baby steps to achieve my long term goal.

My Program:
My program is to do the Walk Away the Pounds series 6 days a week. I have 2 videos, 1 is the Walk Away the Pounds BootCamp and the other is the Walk Away the Pounds 5 mile walk.

So far, I am consistent (since June 2010) and plan to continue this until I reach a plateau or become bored LOL!

Nutritionally, I plan to monitor everything that I eat and record it on SparkPeople. My doctor also made a great suggestion that I stopped eating after 8pm. This has proven successful that I plan to continue. Last, but not least, I drink more than 8 cups of water everyday. I record 8, but I know I drink more than 12 cups of water.

It wasn't until started this program that I was able to see some changes. I hope this helps someone!

Personal Information:
I live in Jacksonville, FL and I have a loving family. If you would like to get to know more about me, feel free to ask!

Hey Drea,
I really enjoyed reading your blog. I could relate to some of the things you wrote about. I can relate to some of the things you wrote about. I know what its like to be over worked and under paid. Your family time takes a hit because you are either working or too tire from working. Just keep on trying, its do-able.

I hope your journey is going well.

Keep Sparkin'

By the way, I love your page colors.
