Hi and welcome! I am new to this SparkPeople thing myself, 5 days now... I never stick to such things that require so much tracking and organization, but I can honestly say that this time it's working.

I may not be in the same shoes as others on here in terms of how much they want to lose, but I think I can safely say that we all want to look and feel healthier as well as strengthen our mental and spiritual energies.

I used to go all out when I exercised but this time I've changed my approach drastically on how I want to get healthier and lose weight. All I did at on day 1 to day 4 was walk everyday for 30~40 minutes, drink 4 bottles of water everyday, lessen my intake of carbs by substituting rice for simple vegetables, and regulate my sleep patterns for 8 hours of sleep. I stepped on the scale today, day 5, and noticed 5.5 lbs dropped off from just that alone.

I hope for you to maintain positive, release negative energies, stay on track, and most importantly never give up.

I've been on the weight loss train before... I've been successful and not so successful... this time things are a little different for me. My husband just left me. I'm alone with my 4 year old and honestly if I have nothing but her I'll have the world. We are both trying to be amicable and be nice to each other for the sake of our daughter. This means I'm holding back alot of fear, resentment, and hurt. The emotions are overwhelming at times.

So this journey is a little different for me this time. I do need to lose 60-65 pounds but it's also about doing something positive for myself and trying to keep my world on it's axis. It's about my daughter seeing that it will be ok b/c mommy isn't falling apart and mommy is OK, and mommy is strong.

So this time it's about me moving in a positive direction from all this. Not sinking into despair. One step forward day by day. One part of a new journey. And hopefully sooner rather than later those feeling of fear, resentment, and hurt will be gone replaced by excitement for new challenges and things to come. The hope that God has something more out there for me and will show me the path I need to follow.
