If it doesn't challenge you, it doesn't change you

Hi Spark Peeps! My name is April and I have lost more than 50 pounds utilizing the spark people resources. I have a few more to go.

My best advice is to use all the tools that spark people provides, and put as much effort into those tools as you can, and you will see results. I believe that if you want to change your body you need to do things differently. Be open to change. Change your mind, change your behaviors, and change your life.

Hi Spark Peeps! My name is April and I have lost more than 50 pounds utilizing the spark people resources. I have a few more to go.

My best advice is to use all the tools that spark people provides, and put as much effort into those tools as you can, and you will see results. I believe that if you want to change your body you need to do things differently. Be open to change. Change your mind, change your behaviors, and change your life. Are you willing to do whatever it takes to have a healthy body and mind? If you truly want to change, you will need to step out of your comfort zone, and not just temporarily. You will need to embrace change and make those changes for life. Stop looking for a quick fix.

If you join teams here on spark people, you will get out of it as much as you put into it. Don't just click the button to join. Actually get involved in team challenges. In fact, make sure you join a team that has active challenges that actually will challenge you! And don't do it half *ssed. Give it 100% effort and you will see results. Be honest, do the work, and see results.

And this is my best advice: work on yourself from the inside out. Look inside yourself and figure out what is going on inside. Deal with those things and you can and will have lasting change. But it will take 100% commitment and you need to be willing to admit you need to change. That what you have been doing, your lifestyle up till now, needs to change. And you need to be patient with yourself, and kind, and you will need to persist.

And never, ever give up. It is worth it. Your health is worth it. You are worth it.

Peace.

I am doing good! Freakin' busy, but good, haha. Staying strong with working out and eating right, and hubby is back on the bandwagon with me, so it is nice to have that support. I hope you are doing well too! I miss you!

I used a lot of different calculators online to determine what a "healthy weight" would be for me, based on factors like age, height, bone thickness, lifestyle.... Most suggested somewhere between 153 and 160 lbs., so I settled on 155. I also knew, from my successful effort back in 2003, that I feel my best in the 150s. Back then, I lost a lot and got down to 145, but I didn't feel good at that weight; I was very weak and tired and even lightheaded at times, and many said i looked "too anorexic." I think 155 or so is ideal for me, and that also leaves a bit of a cushion (around 5 lbs.) for those times when I bob up and down, which is a normal part of life (especially when Aunt Flo comes to visit! lol)
