Remember to LIVE

When I joined SparkPeople in 2007 I was at my heaviest weighing in at 188 lbs. at only 19 years old and was diagnosed with high blood pressure. I have a big list of health problems on both sides of my family so I want to be healthy and active to prevent any conditions that I can.

Since my heaviest, I have lost about 50 lbs. I am almost at my goal weight, although I will be setting a new one, I'm sure. Once I am at my goal weight I want to tone up my body and maintain it.

Its not just about the numbers on the scale for me... I've always been a "big" girl and have let it stop me from enjoying my life. Everyone says things get harder as you get older so I want to start myself on a healthy and active lifestyle path sooner rather than later. I want to be healthy, confident, active and outgoing.

Goodluck everyone!!!

Family and friends are very important to me. Music and dancing are amazing things and my biggest stress relievers.

Things are going alright with me. The scale is still moving in the right direction which is a good thing. I tend to get impatient and want it to happen faster. But I'm really trying to stay focused and remember that slow is good. :o)

Good to hear you got in the workout. I know it is hard to workout when you get home from work...that is what I have to do and usually, I just want to skip it! However, good for you that you did it! Does your boyfriend do it with you? That is cool if so!

I know you said it is hard to workout when you get home because you need to make dinner. Have you ever tried making meals a head of time? Like on Sunday night, so all of your preparation so that it doesn't take so much time when you get home. Just a suggestion. I have had to start doing that. It helps tremendously!

You are certainly NOT a let down to me. The only one you can let down is yourself. I won't push for the challenge, but I think it would be good for you. You do not have to do 50 in 60. You can set your own goal...40 in 50 (since today is day 10). Even 35 in 50. That way you are trying to reach some type of goal to help you out. We have another person who is in the process of moving to Italy who has had to drop off and will pick back up when settled. She won't make 50 either. On the last challenge, I did 54 in 90. So, it is not really about truly making it to the number specified...it is about just making an effort. I probably would not have made it to 54 even had I not been part of the challenge!

Just trying to offer some motivation...hope you don't find it too pushy!

Sorry about your Uncle. My thoughts are with your family!

I didn't workout this AM either. I didn't get to work until 8:45am...oops! I am lucky to have a flexible job. Good to hear that you got a DVD player! I hope that you are able to workout tonight. You can do this...I know you can! Are you still doing the Stars and Stripes challenge? Even if you don't do all 50 workouts...you can still do the challenge. You will find that it keeps you motivated. I know if motivates me. I have done 7 in 9 days. I will do #8 today.

Well...keep up the good work. I will stop by from time to time to see how you are doing!
