Learning a new healthy lifestyle

I am here because my daughter inspired me by losing weight through diet and exercise using SparkPeople.com as a tool.

I have never put much effort into eating right and didn't have any routine exercise other than a once a week walk with a friend.

I am here because my daughter inspired me by losing weight through diet and exercise using SparkPeople.com as a tool.

I have never put much effort into eating right and didn't have any routine exercise other than a once a week walk with a friend. While I learned some basic things about nutrition when I was young, I didn't really know how to go about eating better. My initial motivation didn't include a specific weight loss goal, but my daughter convinced me to enter a goal and utilize the recommendations to help me guide my eating. Tracking my food intake has helped me learn more about reading food labels and making better choices in terms of what and how much I eat.

Shortly after joining SparkPeople, I decided to sign up for the Curves/Avon fitness study. I just completed my first month and have now signed up for another year's membership at Curves. It's a fun, simple workout around friendly people, so I'm looking forward to continuing the Curves circuit.

I sure am glad I had kids! It's amazing what I can learn from their example. My daughter has really been the force behind this effort.
