Bring It On!!! My Journey to a 25 lb Weightloss...

I really didn't mind when I turned 40 but that was until I started gaining weight without really changing what I ate or my physical activity.

Since September 2010, I've been at the gym and eating healthy. I am STILL gaining! Let's not mention my giving up on numerous occasions because of the scale creeping up.

I enjoy knitting and being a Mom to my two wonderful kids. As a single Mom, finding time to get to the gym is a real challenge. I'll keep my Gym membership, ...

Since September 2010, I've been at the gym and eating healthy. I am STILL gaining! Let's not mention my giving up on numerous occasions because of the scale creeping up.

I enjoy knitting and being a Mom to my two wonderful kids. As a single Mom, finding time to get to the gym is a real challenge. I'll keep my Gym membership, but I will be working out with Chalene and Turbo Fire. I'll keep the gym for my easy Zumba class and Yoga.

Short term goals:
Doing 6 workouts a week with Turbo Fire.
Drinking 8 cups of water per day.
Setting up my menu for the week nights every Sunday.

Now let my journey begin!

emoticon Greetings and emoticon

Congrats on taking the next step to reaching a healthier you by getting active with SparkPeople - it's a great community, wonderful resources and fantastic support. You're off to a great start already, just by posting here!

emoticon

Please check out the SparkTeams - I think you will find a lot of others 'just like you' including many with the same challenges, circumstances and goals. You can choose SparkTeams by age group, lifestyle or interests, geographic location or several other ways.

Some of the teams I like and think you might like include the Official 10-minute Daily Exercise Streak Challenge, Starting Over Weekly Mini-Challenge Team, 10k Steps A Day and Motivation & Positive Attitude Plan - but there are so many to choose from, you can have a great time looking for the ones that seem to fit you best! In fact, I suggest joining more than one group, post your intro there and write blogs as often as you can - you will find tons of friends and support that way, I promise!!

emoticon

In my experience, SparkPeople is like a emoticon in some ways - it's lots of fun and easy to make friends because we're all in this together. I like the way a HEALTHY LIFESTYLE is emphasized instead of a 'quick fix wonder diet' so it's good for people wanting to lose weight, maintain a previous loss, get healthier, improve fitness and many other goals including gaining weight or saving money - it's about waaaaaay more than 'just' losing weight so you have definitely come to the right place!

emoticon

If you ever need any help using features of the site, there are tutorial videos under the HELP section that can show you how to use the features of the site. You can also find them on the START page and several other places on the site.

emoticon

Be sure to read and 'study' The Spark book because it outlines the overall program and is compatible with most types of eating plans. Right now there is a 'special offer' on Amazon to get it in electronic format for just $1.99 - you can download the free Kindle reader for your computer or read it on a smartphone so you don't have to actually own a Kindle device to take advantage of this generous offer - so check it out!!!

emoticon

If you haven't already discovered the SparkDiet linked at the bottom of the START page, check it out - the program is simple but extremely effective. There is a TON of information on this site - so much it might even seem overwhelming but fortunately we don't have to 'digest' everything at once! The FastBreak program is a good way to start.

emoticon

Another nice thing about SparkPeople is that we have permission to be human - we don't have to change everything at once or be in a hurry to reach our goals. Take a few baby steps and then a few more and before you know it, you'll have completed a long journey - I hope you enjoy this community as much as I have - it teaches us how to make positive lifetime changes because that's the only thing that will work over time!
