***** I've just decided to lose 10% of my weight at a time! ***


Reinventing myself requires a fresh perspective, the ability to overcome obstacles and dogged determination.

I am building up all of these things in myself.

I am dedicating myself to being the healthy, vibrant, caring, compassionate, amazing woman that I am and that I was meant to be.

I am exactly the person I choose to be.

Changing myself is absolutely up to me.

NO matter what curveballs life throws at me, I am worth every single effort to take care of myself. I am a keeper.

SPARKPEOPLE is a gift I give myself! The energy and inspiration abounds and overflows!

I AM D-O-N-E being the fat girl! I am done seeing myself this way also! WOO HOO!

UPDATE: Sept 2012
After a short lived detour working with an online coach who was so not my style, I am giving Sparkcoach a whirl. I'm checking out the 2 week trial. We'll see what happens from there. :)

UPDATE 2014
I am working with two coaches/personal trainers who are helping me to transform my life. I am learning to ask for and receive help. My life is changing, and I am the one making the changes!

    emoticon Today, try to make a rule for yourself that you can only watch TV if you're moving! How about hitting the treadmill while your watching your favorite T.V. shows, or do crunches, lunges or other exercises to get your blood pumping. You can even exercise while cooking, waiting on the wash to get done, by doing leg lifts, squats or chair exercises. At the end of the day, check in on your teams challenge or wall post and let us know how it went! emoticon

    emoticon emoticon How many times have you or someone you know set out to lose 50 or more pounds, or exercise for an hour day for six days a week, only to fall off the wagon a few weeks (or days) later? Even when people have the best of intentions and or the willpower to set out and do something huge like losing weight, without a plan or a smart goal in place, they stumble along the way—and are more likely to fail. Now that you've been exercising for 10 minutes a day over the past week or so, it is time for you to set some fitness goals that can last a lifetime! emoticon So get started and plan to win!

    emoticon sometimes we all reach a weight loss plateau. What are we to do when that happens?

    DO focus on fruits and vegetables. Most American's don't come close to eating the recommended minimum of five servings per day, but vegetables and fruits of all kinds and colors should take center stage in a heart-healthy diet. They're rich in fiber, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that promote a healthy heart and body, plus they're filling and low in calories, which can promote weight management. Fresh, frozen, dried, canned (without sugar/syrups or added salt), raw, cooked—all fruits and vegetables are good for you.

    Try filling your plate 3/4 of the way full with healthy veggies. Make sure they are baked, roasted or steamed. This way you will be getting the most health benefits they have to offer. Such as fiber, antioxidants and vitamins.

    Double check what you are drinking. Some of us don't realize those delicious lattes and iced coffees are loaded with calories. Check out SP's Chef's Megs recipes for lo-fat & lo-cal coffess. They are so delicious.

    And last but not least, try revamping your exercise routine. That's right, sometimes that is all it takes. Revamping your exercise routine by adding a couple of new exercises or switching up a couple of things.

    Remember, a plateau is just temporary and you can restart your weight loss! emoticon

    Finally it's Summer! We've all been waiting for it. Some fun in the Sun....but, what are we to do if the cold is still hanging around?

    It doesn't mean that we should jump off the wagon, stop exercising and start eating whatever we want. A healthy, calorie-moderated diet and regular physical activity are essential for physical and mental health. We can still practice self-acceptance while continuing to work toward our goals.

    We can exercise in the house, use Spark People's exercise video's, dance our way to fitness and so much more. Just don't give up and let the blues slide in and up set your balance.

    I have faith in you. emoticon Let's get creative!
