Welcome to my Spark page.

Planning on having a Sparking good summer.

Motivation for Summer 5% Challenge
Dr. said I had to eat healthy, loose weight, and exercise more.
Exercise will give me more energy and I won’t have to take a nap every day.
Want to live an active life.
Exercise also give me a positive outlook.
Want to fit back into clothes that I bought last year.

Goals for Spring 5% Challenge:
1. To get back on track and stop putting back on weight that I had lost.
2. To stay within 1200 - 1600 calories.
3. Stregth training 1x a week.
4. Increase cardio to 20 min 6 days.
5. Focus on one day at a time.
6. Focus on the positive.
7. I CAN do this.

Winters are difficult for me. I have SAD and my body craves sunlight.
I need the Winter 5% Challenge to keep me motivated and responsible to my teammates.

Goals for Winter 5% Challenge:
1.Track my food and have 1200. to 1500 calories 6 days a week.
2. Do at least 10 minutes cardio 5x a week.
3. Strength training 2 days per week.
4. Weigh in and post my weight weekly
5. Support fellow members.
6. Love myself even when I mess up!

Every pound that is lost takes four pounds of pressure off of the joints.

A key to a healthy lifestyle is moderation, and moderation means setting limits, applying portion control, and making choices based on long-term health goals, not immediate gratification. I have to work on the “not immediate gratification” part. That is what I want for my life. Slow and steady wins the race and I am a winner.

You're welcome Yvonne. Just take it one day at a time and you can do it. Since January 27th I am down 36.8 pounds. I am getting closer to what I want to weigh. My husband is off all his meds now. And I am down in to a misses size 16 jeans. You met me when I was wearing a women's 24-26 size.

Yvonne, I feel your frustration! You have all the tools you need and I know you can do this. I think the Sparkpeople SMART goals system is really helpful. One article on them is at:

vation_articles.asp?id=1794 You will probably have to copy the link and paste it in your browser. It's at least worth reading. Hugs.
