A new way of thinking...

Being a big girl, I've been "dieting" my entire life but have just started to think about weight loss as a lifestyle change rather than a diet. I've used food in the past as a way to reward myself or celebrate just about any occasion with. I can no longer have this relationship with food. I'm trying to think of it as something that gives nourishment to my body and get my pleasure from other things.

I'm trying to think of it as something that gives nourishment to my body and get my pleasure from other things.

When I got pregnant with my son I was diagnosed with gestational diabetes and was told that I would most likely have diabetes at some point in my life if I don't lose weight. I had a surprise pregnancy only 10 months after giving birth to my son and again was diagnosed with gestational diabetes. I'm ready to commit to a new lifestyle and show my children what a healthy life can look like.

I'm incredibly excited for this journey and look forward to many changes to come.

Hey Girlie!

I just wanted to let you know I made a facebook page for all of the 29 year old sparksters. Thought I'd share it here with you. It needs some love but it's a starting point!

The trackers on here are amazing! As long as you stick with it, it will become second nature. 4 lbs?!?!?! You're awesome!!!! Sticking with the healthy eating is the hardest for me, so woohoo for not cheating!! Silly as it sounds, I started with Richard Simmons "Sweatin' to the Oldies". The first time I did a half hour workout, I thought I was going to die. Little by little, it will get easier. You need to build your heart, lungs, and muscle. If you can do 30 minutes 5 days a week, you'll be great. You can break it up into smaller increments too, so 3 10 minute workouts , or 2 15 minute increments. Don't go too crazy at first or you'll hurt yourself.

I am so proud of you!!! I am happy to see you on SP - I know you'll love it!!
