Not Janet Jackson yet, but I see the hint of a waist coming up there...

    Hey, your poor mom took speed to lose weight, huh? Oh, man that stuff is harsh! The belt-belly-shaker thing I never saw in person but on TV for sure! LOL! My older sister ate odd little diet caramels - I think they were supposed to numb the taste buds - eat 2 before meals with a warm drink so you'll eat less! Yeah, right - I seem to recall consuming quite a few of them as they were tasty. DIETING CHRONICALLY IS NUTS! woof. Spark ON!

    emoticon Jenna!!!
    emoticon on taking the first steps to a healthier you. A emoticon toast to a healthier and more enjoyable life! emoticon emoticon emoticon And emoticon prayerfully you will find that you can enjoy it more than you would ever imagine!!!
    Some thoughts and suggestions as I say emoticon to Spark People.
    emoticon This sight has so much to offer! One of the easiest ways to learn a lot about what it has to offer is to go to your "My SparkPoints" tracking Page. Next to each opportunity to earn Sparkpoints there is a link that will take you to the place on the site that helps you complete the task. Some are one time opportunities, others are daily tasks. Complete as many tasks as possible per day.
    emoticon don't emoticon to the temptation of making the journey all about the numbers. It is not about pounds taken off or inches trimmed, it is all about creating a healthier and more fit you. emoticon
    emoticon Be on the lookout for the many, many, many non-scale non-tape measure victories you will achieve. Feeling healthier, breathing easier, enjoying activities that were once a drudgery, trying something new and enjoying it, choosing a healthy snack versus an unhealthy option, choosing a less than healthy food option over a decadent food option! The possibilities for non-scale victories are ENDLESS. emoticon
    Some things to remember: emoticon drink plenty of water every day!
    emoticon sleep well, it is probably more important than you know. emoticon healthier every day. emoticon Don't go the way of total deprivation, it is apt to set you up for failure and a binge that will leave you feeling devastated. Look for opportunities to emoticon every day. emoticon when you need to --it is healthier than emotional eating! Find ways to emoticon emoticon emoticon exercise that you ENJOY. The right form of exercise is the one you can stick with regularly!!! Something else may burn more calories in a shorter time, but if it makes you give up you won't burn any calories! emoticon
    emoticon MAKE EVERY STEP COUNT. Even steps that seem to move you backwards or to the side have a purpose. Sometimes it is just to get another look at something you passed by without noticing.
    Perhaps most importantly from my perspective DON’T LOSE weight or inches…TAKE THEM OFF, emoticon KICK THEM TO THE CURB. You aren’t interested in FINDING them again. GET RID OF THEM through hard work, determination, accountability, whatever it takes!!!
    Finally, join teams, make friends, encourage others, be encouraged, take challenges, write out SMART goals regularly and track! Track! TRACK!!! It will help with both accountability and motivation, and You will be glad you did!!!
    Feel free to stop by my page, let me know if there is anything I can do to help you in the journey!

    Howdy and welcome to Spark People. Well, you're an "older dog" than I am at 60 but I sure can relate to your story. I even drank Metrecal my dad brought home to lose weight when I was 12! Ugh! Not only is this site free, it is NOT a diet. I am working on getting that concept to penetrate the layers of old habits. It is a lifestyle change! If you haven't already, work your way through the Stages and Strategies material and focus on attitude and lifestyle. It's a journey, as they say, and the journey does not end at goal weight! For me, that is just a beginning. Good luck and "see" you around the site!
