One year ago, I sold my business and later on the same day my son was diagnosed with cancer. In one year, through lack of exercise, stress, and bad eating habits (particularly hospital and take-out food), I added another 40 pounds to my already heavy state. I am fed up with being heavy, unhealthy, and at risk. My goal for now is to lose just over 100lb in the next year. I do hope I can do it faster than that. Years ago, Weight Watchers helped me lose a little, but I did not have enough ...

Years ago, Weight Watchers helped me lose a little, but I did not have enough support to keep me going. This time, my husband is on board with me, I am more confident in doing it, even if I didn't have that support, and I am going to put way more emphasis on exercise and nutrition, rather than calorie (point) intake. I am very excited about this program, and all the options with it, and especially that I can enter my own healthy recipes, tailored to suit my family. I was also pretty excited to lose my first 6 pounds by the third day after joining sparkpeople. Exercising is easier than I remember it being, too. I am going to work hard to reach my goal, but so far it is pretty fun.

You can do this!! You and I seem to have similar goals - I am looking to lose 100 pounds within a year while making nutrition and exercise a big part of my life. We can do this - it's not always going to be easy but think of how AMAZING it will be when you reach your goal weight!! :) Way to go so far on the weight you have lost - that's a big accomplishment and shouldn't be forgotten so easily! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hello there. I just read your message on the Calling All Canadians challenge. I just smiled. It is so much better to put that information out there because it makes you more accountable to yourself and to the other members. By the way, did you lose some weight in June? I just noticed on your ticker that you have lost 25 lbs! Wow, that is great! Keep us posted. Hugs. Lise
