I am a college girl- the works of it. Sorority life, studying, socializing. Its great,but not so great for my health. Being a part of the whole experience means I'm surrounded by constant snacks, late night fast food runs, drinking and my downfall; chocolate milk. I have a wedding to go to this summer and so Im making it my goal to lose 50 pounds before then and keep that weight off so I can look just as good for my own wedding, my kids weddings, my grandkids. So this is going to be about my journey on losing the weight, and improving myself.
50 Pounds gone by August!!! Ive got a wedding to go to and cousins to impress!
Mostly its all going to be about eating healthy with a gradual introduction of exercise. Im pretty seditary right now and pretty busy, o food is going to be the most important thing.
I'm a college sorority girl loving life at a small liberal arts school, loving life and looking towards loving myself.
Late night snacking and chocolate milk are my weaknesses!!

WELCOME TO SPARK!!!
Congrats on taking the first step into changing your life to a more healthier one by joining the site. Spark is filled with amazing people that will motivate, support and encourage you on your journey. There is so much to learn and discover here, take this one day at a time.
A couple of things I would like to suggestion to make you Spark experience a great one.
1. Put together your own Spark page. This is a great way to communicate with other members and build relationships that will support and motivate you. You can do this by going to the START page and the green section has something about your Sparkpage.
2. Make goals for yourself. Each month I make a list of what I want to accomplish that month and break them down to smaller goals to work with week by week. This way the BIG picture doesn't seem so big.
3. Join Spark teams. There are tons of teams here and you will be able to find ones that fit to what you like or want in a team.
The key to success here is to be active and you've already started by joining. You will find that everyone is willing to help you out if you need it. Spark friends are here for support, motivation and encouragement. Good luck on your journey to a healthier lifestyle! Again, welcome to the SP family!
