WELCOME TO MY SPARK PAGE......
My journey with Spark People has been and will continue to be a very exciting one. As I learned to navigate my way around, I
discovered so many helpful topics, which I read that gave me a wealth of information and knowledge.
Teams to join, recipes to try, and so much more.
I needed to lose weight.
I did not promise myself to lose weight, as promises can be broken, instead I made a commitment to lose weight.
I read members blogs on how they lost weight. Saying to myself, if they can do it, so can I."
My new weight loss has taken 2 years. to lose. 81 lbs.
Changing my eating habits, along with exercising made a big difference.
I found what worked for me and stuck to it.
I used what I learned to becoming a healthier me.
My first goal is losing weight.
Since I have joined Spark People I have lost 81 pounds.
My second goal is to exercise more on a daily routine.
My third goal is to eat healthier for life.
I am on a 1200 calorie a day diet.
Here I wrote some of my ways of my accomplishing this.
1. staying focused
4. if I fall down seven
times, I get up eight.
5. support from other
6. Spark People articles
11. staying positive
