I you asked me how I'm doing. I'd lie and tell you I am just fine. I am not find with my self. I want to lose this weight!
I have developed a new love of music over this summer. I have acquire a new love of the sun and water as wel as people.
I will be honest and tell you all I am still the same 320lbs rough that I have been for a while. I have to say that when you have great friends and you are having all the fun in the world. You can by the limited of what being heavy can make you feel like.
I am grateful that my friends make me feel so loved and the people who I have met this summer do noy judge me on my weight. The whole feeling of not being accepted because of being heavy has never happened to me.
Losing weight has been the one thing in my life that I seem to have no control over. It's like food runs my life. I eat late a night or grab something quick and easy. Which always seems to equal unhealthy.
We are moving in to fall and I have to be honest with myself that I am going to try harder to lose the weight so I will be here to enjoy more summer just like I did this year.
If there is one thing that I have learned with trying to accomplish a goal, it's that make to make plans and trying to many things all at once leads to failure because I get overwhelmed.
So here is to a more positive new me.
Back to where I started.

    Welcome to SparkPeople and to the Lifestyle Change team. What you see on television makes losing weight seem easy. I believe all of us here know that is not the way it really is. It takes a lot of work and making changes in our lifestyle, such as the way and what we eat, how we spend our time and how active we are. How you live determines your choices and your choices decide how healthy you are. That is why a lifestyle change is important for us to be successful in meeting our goals. You are here, so that says to me you have learned diets don't work. That is why this is not a diet but a lifestyle change. We are happy you decided to join our team.
