Wow. 15 lbs is quite a bit for a first month, but I'm sure it depends on how much you need to lose. I think I lost 7 my first 4 weeks, I'll have to check on that. Great job!

What a great message and how true. I find this to be so true. It is so easy to block out what our brain really wants to do, eat the good food, not the junk for a quick fix and exercise even though we are trying to talk ourselves out of it. Thanks for bringing to the front these thoughts. Congratulations and keep up the great work in your path of weight loss.

Hi Piggsy

It's my birthday today; I'm 47. I still feel and look quite young, but I'm similarly aware of the little decisions I make each day, or fail to make, and the impact it has on me: chatting on the net instead of working, studying, exercising, etc, and time witters by. I found SparkPeople 3 days ago on my mobile phone, then registered on the website. I've set specific goals and daily/weekly challenges and, like you, I have found in SparkPeople that incentive to keep it up.

Thanks for your encouraging post.

Way to go. It is mind over matter which is what you are starting to accomplish. Keep up the good work. I am starting to feel the same way you are. My goal to feel younger, to be able to do more with my family and to look fit and trim when my son graduates from high school in 2013. I hope to reach my goal weight of 149 by 04/19/11. We are in this journey together.

Me too! Although I am just now starting my journey, I too realize that I am in control and not my circumstances. So, if I have a bad day (not if but when) I don't have to eat a 3,000 calorie meal. I choose to eat what I know I need to because I love me and in order to be healthy, I have to exercise and watch what I eat...regardless how I feel and what happens to me. Making right decisions will turn into right habits which will turn into a happy and successful life for me. Thanks for sharing your light bulb moment. Love it!

I love how the hard decisions about eating/moving transition to easier choices and then to things that you look forward to and start to do as part of your new "normal"

you are doing great!

After 4 weeks (and 15 lbs. lost), I've begun to recognize all the little decisions I make during the day, and how I let my bad habits dictate my decisions before. I now freely choose to "eat this and not that", and to-when-and how to exercise (instead of watching TV). These new ways are not quite yet (good) habits -- it takes a true decision still to do the right thing -- but the fact that I am choosing to make these decisions is pretty cool. And, now I've decided, that while its to hot outside to go walk the dog, I will go to the gym and work the treadmill. Thanks SparkPeople.

PS: My son just graduated from high school yesterday. I am so proud of him.
I was asked if that made me feel old. I don't. I feel younger every time I tie on my running shoes and with every lb. of fat I take off of my back (or belly).
