I began the process of losing weight at the end of December. My brother was already working with sparkpeople and I became interested in joining. You see my family has a history of heart disease and therefore my risks are higher for developing problems. I was at the top of the overweight category on the BMI charts and therefore my risks of heart problems were elevated for this reason too. In the months following I began to lose a few pounds at a time and this motivated me to keep working at the process. I have had struggles and ups and downs, two steps forward, one step back and currently I am up a few pounds and will need to work my way back to my goal weight again. I see this as a long term jouney and I am not going to get off this healthy lifestyle change ever. It is a life time commitment and I will maintain my weight within a few pounds up and down for life. I am going to apply my learning, my patience with my short falls, my knowing to keep the long term perspective, to new goals beyond my personal health. I am feeling great about myself and what this can mean to me and those around me. I hope my story is encouraging to you as well. I know I like thinking about my own story, it inspires me to keep on sparking!!
