"I shall shape my future. Whether I fail or succeed shall be no man's doing but my own. I am the force; I can clear any obstacle before me. Or I can be lost in the maze. My choice. My responsbility. Win or lose, only I hold the key to my destiny."

So a bit about myself.. I'm a stay at home mom and the 1st time I joined sparkpeople was in 2009 but didn't make it very far. Then when I finally decided that I wanted to get healthy at the begining of this year (2011, it was actually my new years resolution) I came back to sparkpeople because you can track everything all in one place, but when I entered my weight in the tracker it told be that I wan't just over weight but I ws obese. That really opened my eyes to how far I had let myself go and well to be honest it really sucked! Then I began my weight loss journey. 6 months of P90X, after that Kettlebells, then RushFit, 8 months later 54lbs dropped and on September 19th,2011 I weighed in @ a healthy body weight!!! Dreams really do come true, sometime you just have to help out a bit. I still have a ways to go but if my journey could inspire or help someone on theirs that would be amazing. Just remeber hard work and determination do pay off and making excuses will get you nowhere.

    emoticon Greetings and emoticon

    Congrats on taking the next step to reaching a healthier you by getting active with SparkPeople - it's a great community, wonderful resources and fantastic support.

    Please check out the SparkTeams - I think you will find a lot of others 'just like you' there. You can choose SparkTeams by age group, lifestyle or interests, geographic location or several other ways - some of the teams you might like include the Official 10-minute Daily Exercise Streak Challenge, Starting Over Weekly Mini-Challenge Team, 10k Steps A Day and Motivation & Positive Attitude Plan but there are so many to choose from, you can have a great time looking for the ones that seem to fit you best! In fact, I suggest joining more than one group, post your intro there and write blogs as often as you can - you will find tons of friends and support that way, I promise!!

    In my experience, SparkPeople is like a emoticon in some ways - it's lots of fun and easy to make friends because we're all in this together. I like the way a HEALTHY LIFESTYLE is emphasized instead of a 'quick fix wonder diet' so it's good for people wanting to lose weight, maintain a previous loss, get healthier, improve fitness and many other goals - it's about waaaaaay more than 'just' losing weight so you have definitely come to the right place!


    If you ever need any help using features of the site, there are tutorial videos under the HELP section that can show you how to use the features of the site. You can also find them on the START page and several other places on the site.


    If you haven't already discovered The Spark book and/or the SparkDiet linked at the bottom of the START page, check them out - the program is simple but extremely effective. There is a TON of information on this site - so much it might even seem overwhelming but fortunately we don't have to 'digest' everything at once! The FastBreak program is a good way to start.


    Another nice thing about SparkPeople is that we have permission to be human - we don't have to change everything at once or be in a hurry to reach our goals. Take a few baby steps and then a few more and before you know it, you'll have completed a long journey - I hope you enjoy this community as much as I do - it teaches us how to make positive lifetime changes because that's the only thing that will work over time!

    I'm glad it made your day better! I know how rough it can be. We are just getting over h1n1 and I am not having the energy to get back on track fitness wise. We just walked ot the mall and back to get groceries and it just about killed the girls and 1.

    have a great day! emoticon
