Taking the First Step
Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
Well, here I am again! I'm 210 pounds and would like to get down to 135...eventually! I am starting out slowly thought, making a short term goal of losing 25 pounds by the end of this year.
My motivation this time is my daughter, Sarah, who has joined Sparkteens to lose weight and has asked my husband, Chris, and I to do it with her for moral support.
I've been putting off losing the weight because I really can't stand the idea of controlling every single portion of every single food I eat. However, I know it's unhealthy to be this heavy and I do have high cholesterol problems, along with other health issues, so it will do me some good to lose the weight.
I just would like to lose the weight I gained, get to my goal and be able to maintain without having to battle my cravings so much. I also wish to find more motivation to exercise.
I am going to try to exercise for at least 30 minutes, 6 times a week and avoid in-between-meal snacking.
As you can tell from the title of my page, my name is Amy. I'm from Indianapolis, Indiana. If you'd like to know more about me, feel free to email me at email@example.com
Today, I will be too calm for worry, too noble for anger and too strong for defeat. Today, I will believe anything is possible...I will walk through fear without hesitation. Today, I will stand for something. Today, I will make a difference.
