I stumbled upon this site when I was looking for Diet/Fitness/Nutrition Information. I watched a video about it and decided to join. I plan to spend some time looking around and want to begin some kind of diet/fitness/weight loss plan this week ... probably the day after Labor Day (2008).

I have set/reset my goals here several times - I have had successes and setbacks ... but this site seems to keep me 'on track' ~ even if I 'stray' every now and again. I have actually lost 25 lbs. and as a result, reached my goal - but, slowly, over time I got 'lazy' and gained it all back! I find that as you get older, it is more difficult to lose - so, it is nobody's fault but my own, but this will take some work!

The start date for the 2017 Winter 5% Challenge (and the FIRST 5% Challenge of the New Year) is set for Saturday, 1/14/17. I'm looking forward to getting myself back on track and making some positive changes for 2017!

My Goals:
I started here in September, 2008 with a goal to get into shape and lose 24-25 lbs. I've achieved my goal in the past, but didn't pay attention all the time and I need to get back to and re-focus on that first goal (getting there and sticking to it).

My main goal is to achieve a healthy lifestyle. Healthy, sensible eating and exercise is exactly what is needed!

My Program:
In 2010, I found the 5% Challenges. These Challenges, along with some common sense eating/exercising are some of the things that have helped me most on this journey to create a 'healthier' me.

It is now the beginning of 2017 and the 5% Challenges are still a part of my SparkLife. I love the Challenges and plan to contine them as long as I'm a SP member. As an additional resource, (and a present to myself), I signed up for SparkCoach and began that feature on 1/1/17.

    Am I allowed to say, Happy Early Capital A day? I, too, love musical theater :) What's your favorite? Mine are probably Guys and Dolls and Westside Story :) But hopefully sometime soon you'll hear of a new one called Legendale. It is my brother's show, and just had its world premiere in Denmark (in Danish, even though he is the lyricist and did the lyrics in English, and they were translated). I couldn't go to that, sadly, but I'll get to go to the US premiere in Dayton, Ohio. Hopefully the next stop is off- or off-off-Broadway!

    Anyway, enough about me. Nice to meet you, Heidi, and thanks for being a teammate!
