Bernadette's Journey

Hello, My name is Bernadette and I not only need to lose weight but actually feel that I am ready to succeed. I am a 30 year old mom of 1, My boyfriend and I are recently engaged and have a wedding planned for October 22, 2012. I really don't want to be a "FAT" bride on my wedding night. (Excuse the term) I think many of us envision ourselves on our wedding day when we are young children. For me, that vision did not include a 270 pound woman saying "I do".

Hello, My name is Bernadette and I not only need to lose weight but actually feel that I am ready to succeed. I am a 30 year old mom of 1, My boyfriend and I are recently engaged and have a wedding planned for October 22, 2012. I really don't want to be a "FAT" bride on my wedding night. (Excuse the term) I think many of us envision ourselves on our wedding day when we are young children. For me, that vision did not include a 270 pound woman saying "I do".
In addition to my "Dream Wedding" which is not quite on the top of my list, I have many more reason's for wanting to lose the weight. First, and formost, I want to be healthier. I want to have another child, and I want to be here to watch my children grow, and to watch my grandchildren grow. Then, there is my son who is an overweight 12 year old. He has high cholestrol, high blood pressure, and elevated liver enzymes. No child should have to live with health problems at such a young age.

emoticon Greetings and emoticon

I'm glad you're getting active with SparkPeople - it's a great community, wonderful resources and fantastic support.

In my experience, SparkPeople is like a emoticon in some ways - it's lots of fun and easy to make friends because we're all in this together. I like the way a HEALTHY LIFESTYLE is emphasized instead of a 'quick fix wonder diet' - it's about waaaaaay more than 'just' losing weight so you have definitely come to the right place!

emoticon

If you ever need any help using features of the site, there are tutorial videos under the HELP section that can show you how to use the features of the site. You can also find them on the START page and several other places on the site.

emoticon

If you haven't discovered The Spark book and/or the SparkDiet linked at the bottom of the START page, check them out - the program is simple but extremely effective. There is a TON of information on this site - so much it might even seem overwhelming but fortunately we don't have to 'digest' everything at once! The FastBreak program is a good way to start.

emoticon

Another nice thing about SparkPeople is that we have permission to be human - we don't have to change everything at once or be in a hurry to reach our goals. Take a few baby steps and then a few more and before you know it, you'll have completed a long journey - I hope you enjoy this community as much as I do - it teaches us how to make positive lifetime changes because that's the only thing that will work over time!
