My first Spark Trophies date back to 2009. I have had weight issues since childhood and I have tried many different diet plans that didn't last. Just like you. My yo-yo dieting has left me discouraged, frustrated, and feeling hopeless at times. I didn't start at my highest weight when I came to SP. Somehow I had managed to loose some wieght on my own, but I was feeling stuck and needed some structure and support in order to move forward.

Since 2009 I have continued the struggle. Some times on program and some times off. After all these years I have not lost hope of achieving my goal and so I remain a SP fan.

2013 I trained for my first 5K, learned about fatloser.com and
The Beck Solution, and had my first hip replacement!
2014 I had my second hip replacement.
2015 I took the year off from the diet world and celebrated life!
2016 I struggled all year with a knee injury
2017 I am determined to succeed this year! My goals are:
1. Feeling calm & peaceful
2. Ditching the negative self-talk
3. Finding balance in my life between the Physical,
Emotional, Intellectual, & Spiritual
4. Getting more fit by building muscle strength
5. Eating healthy & losing 10#

9/27/17 Getting ready for the 5% Fall Challenge. 5% is 8.6# which is right in line with the elusive 10# goal I have for 2017.

The 10 Reasons I Want To Lose Weight:

1. I want to be at my goal weight once and for all.
2. I want to eat to live instead of living to eat.
3. I want to be master of my food.
4. I want to get rid of the rolls I see on my body.
5. I want to increase my strength so I can do push-ups and lunges.
6. I want to be proud of myself for doing what I said I would do.
7. I want to feel like a heathy person - Fit * Active * Balanced * Strong!
8. I want to feel mentally comfortable around all kinds of food.
9. I want to feel that I deserve to join the Maintenance Team
10. I want to be a healthy example and roll model for others.
