April 2007 I am on the right setting up for our community Earth Day Celebration.





September 2007 I am wearing the orange shirt we are setting up for our community shoreline cleanup.

With SparkPeople.Com, it's a lifestyle, not a diet.

I have reached my destination regarding a healthier lifestyle and my weight loss goals. It took me longer, but I have found that slow and steady keeps you on course and helps avoid detours, you can not have an all or nothing attitude (I have maintained my goals weight now for over 7 years). This is my advise to others who are beginning their healthier lifestyle journey:
SparkPeople really works, but the key is you and consistency. Create a SparkPage and have it set so members can see it ...
I have reached my destination regarding a healthier lifestyle and my weight loss goals. It took me longer, but I have found that slow and steady keeps you on course and helps avoid detours, you can not have an all or nothing attitude (I have maintained my goals weight now for over 7 years). This is my advise to others who are beginning their healthier lifestyle journey:
SparkPeople really works, but the key is you and consistency. Create a SparkPage and have it set so members can see it (I didn't want to do this at first either, but if you commit to this go all the way, we also would like to get to know you better, no strangers here, just friends you have never met). Find and join SparkTeams that fit your interests and needs (best place to talk to your new friends, and get all the support and motivation you will need). Stay active on your teams by joining in the challenges and post frequently. Track your food; drink at least 8 glasses of water a day (challenge yourself to work your way up to it if you are finding this difficult). Add different exercises to your day (start off slowly and increase the amount of exercise over time). Take baby steps, and before you know it those baby steps become giant leaps.

SparkPeople is free, but the rewards are priceless.

"You can do what you want to do, accomplish what you want to accomplish, attain any reasonable objective you may have in mind - not all of a sudden, perhaps not in one swift and sweeping act of achievement - but you can do it gradually, day by day and play by play, if you want to do it, if you work to do it, over a sufficiently long period of time."

Thank you for stopping by my page and well wishes.

I have long ago realized this is a lifestyle for sure! Maintenance is just as important as getting there. But, I believe it is a little harder (esp. at first) because keeping the balance is hard to do if you are not focused and mindful at all the times. I have discovered I cannot let my guard down or lose focus, because it will come back.

Good luck with maintaining for the long haul!!! emoticon
