Hello Everyone! My name is Mary and I live in the Midlands and I have lost weight and gained weight! Just turned 40 this year and promised myself that I want to be healthier and lose weight the right way this time. I work full-time and am in school full-time but I make time every morning to exercise to get my day off to a great start!! I am happily married with no children and just want to be a fit and fun loving wife!
Found this site and hope that it will help me to reach my goals!

Update:
Celebrated one year here on SparkPeople and I have continued to go strong despite some setbacks this year with injuries!
I am consistently tracking and exercising and making all efforts to stay connected to those who provide motivation, encouragement and support which is what I have found here with SparkPeople! This website has played a major role in pushing me to stay on track even when I fall and I realize that I don't fall far but it can be easy to get off track without others there encouraging you to keep going!
The weight has been slow to come off but I know that this is the best way! There are some good days and there are those bad days; but I work hard to let the GOOD outweigh the BAD!! :)
Will continue to stay focused on a healthy lifestyle which will allow me to reach my goals!
Thanks to everyone that has provided me with motivation, support and encouragement!
Will keep sparking!!

    "It is rewarding to find someone you like, but it is essential to like yourself.
    It is quickening to recognize that someone is a good and decent human being, but it is indispensable to view yourself as acceptable.
    It is a delight to discover people who are worthy of respect and admiration and love, but it is vital to believe yourself deserving of these things."

    Fake it if you must and keep faking it until it’s real to you. The gift you will be giving yourself is a lifelong journey of discovery, one that is infinite and infinitely rewarding. Begin the journey. Today. This moment. Now."

    "One of the most difficult parts of changing how you live and how you eat is believing that change is possible.
    We all say we believe that, but many of us, deep down in our hearts believe that it's possible for other people, but not for us.
    That other people can do it, that the glowy warm life we imagine is for other people, not for us.
    We have an unconscious belief that we can't do it, it's hopeless, and so, on some level, we stop making an effort.
    We lapse into the way it always was or is. But change really is possible.
    And it really does take a fierce kind of longing, and a fierce kind of love for yourself.
    For the life you know is possible. Ask yourself what you love most of all.
    Do you love your life? And are you willing to take action on your own behalf?"

    Hugs,

    “In terms of days and moments lived, you’ll never again be as young as you are right now, so spend this day, the youth of your future, in a way that deflects regret. Invest in yourself. Have some fun. Do something important. Love somebody extra. In one sense, you’re just a kid, but a kid with enough years on her to know that every day is priceless."
    -Victoria Moran
