I will have my 4 year Sparkiversary in June 2016. In 2014 I was having problems with my left foot, I ended up having serious foot surgery on November 3, 2014. Of course I managed to fall down the stairs on Thanksgiving 2015 so had a broken toe and cracked metatarsal. I've been pretty lazy & I'm looking to kick laziness in the butt this summer! With the start of 2016, I tried to start my new journey to being a healthier person, but I just didn't get to where I wanted to be. I want to get fit, I just have to do it, I have to convince myself that I can! I found Spark People in June 2012 and started eating better, but did not really start my workout plan until September. I had lofty goals of turning my 16 pound loss into a 20 pound loss by September of 2013, continued to keep the weight off, but due to my foot problems and surgery I gained it all back and then some.

    Thanks for the tips on studying and exercising at the same time. I will try to do those things! Maybe if I do both at the same time, it will help to balance the stress out. LOL.

    Thank you SO MUCH for the blog post comment about my December calendar! It's great to hear that you also started your journey on December 1. Feels good to be focused on being healthy instead of totally letting yourself go this month, right?! :) It was so encouraging to hear you say I could compare this to next December 2015 a year from now. I'm SO looking forward to that day that I can finally say, "I DID IT!" and focus on just maintaining a healthy lifestyle instead of being dragged down by all this extra weight.

    It looks like you are definitely on track for a great month, too! Keep up the good work. We've got this! :) Have a great week!
