Hi Everyone! My name is Linda and have 122 pounds to lose to put me in a normal weight range. What the final weigh loss will be depends on how I feel & look. The most important thing is I must be comfortable with myself. I guess my title page says it all. I have been a member off and on for a few years now. It is time I hold myself accountable and get serious about losing weight. I am tired of yo yo dieting. I am really tired of the way I look and feel. I am fearful of developing heart disease or diabetes which runs in our family. I am now pre diabetic but the doctor said I can change that with weight loss. I lack discipline, self control and perseverance. But that is O.K. I am here to learn. When I think of my goal it puts a BIG SMILE on my face! I know when I lose the weight I will have more energy and my self esteem will soar! I know it's going to be a long road but I AM GOING TO TAKE ONE DAY AT A TIME! I'm in this for the long haul. Their seems to be so much help on the site that I know in my heart I will succeed! My short team goal is to leave Twoterville & enter into Onederland in 2018. I can do it! I will do it! I believe in myself. I'm not a quitter!

    Hi Linzee118,

    It seems we have a lot in common. Good for you, coming back to Spark in just a few months after your loss. I didn't come back until I got sick of looking at what my body has become. Also, I read in AARP that the biggest cause of fatal and nonfatal injuries in people over 65 is falls. I use the balance games on my old Wii and I used to be really good, so I thought it may be a good idea to get that balance back. My mom passed away due to a fall and I don't want to go the same way, it was very painful to watch. So here I am, starting slow, but determined!
