Back in action!

Tuesday, September 28, 2010

It's been a long time since I've been on here, and even longer since I've had the "burn" to lose weight. It hit me today. I was chasing my twin toddlers around the living room, and after about 5 minutes I couldn't play with them anymore. Enough is enough! I want to get my life back, I want to be in control! I don't want to look at food as the highlight of my day, and I want to just be able to play with my kids :(

I've also noticed a difference in my "love life". I don't feel attractive anymore, and feel as if I'm not attractive in my boyfriend's eyes anymore :( I know a key part of attraction is confidence, and I am seriously lacking it at the moment!!!

My goal is to lose 100 lbs. I know this isn't going to happen over night, and I know this will take dedication. And I also know that I need alot of help and support! I'm going to take this one day at a time, plan healthier meals, drink more water! Get out and play more with my kids...if anyone has any suggestions or advise, I'm open!

    Welcome back! You can absolutely reach your goal - just starting small and building consistency yields all kinds of results over time! For me, it worked well to follow the actual Spark Diet plan (you can click on it at the bottom of your Start Page) and go through the steps each week. It helped me to set realistic goals and not get ahead of myself or overly frustrated. I also am a big fan of racking up points - it's a good way to get around the site and learn more at the same time! Good luck and don't hesitate to reach out if you have questions or need support! You can do this!!!!
