My life My journey

I have tried to loose weight so many times in the past. I have tried everything to loose weight. I am done with gimmicks, pills and fad diets and this time I am doing it the old fashion way through diet and exercise.

I started making my lifestyle change in 2007 when i signed up for the National body challenge.

Reason i decided to make this lifestyle change:
1) To live longer
2) To Avoid getting high blood pressure and Diabetes that run in my family

I have tried to loose weight so many times in the past. I have tried everything to loose weight. I am done with gimmicks, pills and fad diets and this time I am doing it the old fashion way through diet and exercise.

I started making my lifestyle change in 2007 when i signed up for the National body challenge.

Reason i decided to make this lifestyle change:
1) To live longer
2) To Avoid getting high blood pressure and Diabetes that run in my family
3) To not get winded when going up a flight of stairs
4) So I can set a better example for children in my life and the children i work with daily.
5) Sleep better at night
6) To be able to keep up with my god kids.

Since starting spark people I have come along way with my lifestyle change. Here are some of the changes I made:

I now eat breakfast every morning
I used skip Breakfast and super or king size lunch

I now drink 64+ oz of water and no soda
I used to drink 64+ oz of soda

I now eat 3 or more fruits and veggies.(still working on increasing this)
I used to eat maybe 1 fruit or veggie on a good day

I now exercise 3-4 days a week and walk 10,000+ steps most days.
I used to consider getting off the couch exercise.

I have stop putting myself down and learned to love myself no matter how much I weight.
I used to put myself down and hated myself for been so big.

I still have a long way to go but I know I will get there

I am a work in progress and I will make it to my goal of 150.
