I'm 48, have three children, and have been married for 26 years. In the fall of 2011 I noticed that all of my clothes were fitting more and more snug. I avoided getting on the scale for several months because I knew it would not be good. A chance Facebook post by a friend in early December lead me to SparkPeople, which I had never heard of before.

I'm 48, have three children, and have been married for 26 years. In the fall of 2011 I noticed that all of my clothes were fitting more and more snug. I avoided getting on the scale for several months because I knew it would not be good. A chance Facebook post by a friend in early December lead me to SparkPeople, which I had never heard of before. I decided to sign up, although at the time I had no intention of actually DOING anything about my weight. I weighed 304 at that time; more than I have ever weighed in my life. I decided right then to start paying attention to what I was eating. I managed to lose 3 lbs that month and started 2012 at 301 lbs. At a doctors appointment on Jan 20th I discovered my thyroid, blood sugar, and blood pressure are all above normal. That's when I decided that I needed to take control of my health. I needed to do more than just pay attention to what I was eating, I actually need to alter my intake. And the rest, as they say, is history!

Here are some special emoticon to get you through the day. Always remember you are not alone. This journey is long and slow, if we are going to do it successfully and healthy! It is a lifestyle change and not a diet. And it's OK to lose the UMPH to get MOVIN' again and be on the right track.

But, WE ARE SO WORTH IT, so continue the struggle. And, know with confidence that with each step you take---you are moving closer to your
ultimate goal!!! Keep challenging yourself! emoticon

1 HAPPY SPIRIT
