Well, I've found myself about 25 pounds overweight and am very disappointed in the obvious lack of self control that I've exhibited over the last 2 or 3 years. I haven't weighed this much since I was 7 months pregnant with my son!

I've been on Spark for about 8 years now off and on, but never seem to be able to stick around until I've met my goal. I ususally get about half way there and end up becoming distracted from my diet, then I eat bad for a while and just give up. But I'm determined to change this pattern!

I'm ready to be the size I want to be and treat my body the way it deserves to be treated!

My Program:
I am trying to lose 25 pounds. I am a vegetarian, and everyone assumes vegetarians don't get fat. I assure you, they can, and do. I eat healthy foods, I just eat too much of them. So my main goal is portion control. (I have my food scale handy!) I also need to learn to make time for exercise. I'm super busy, and usually end up feeling like I just don't have the time. I need to MAKE the time!

    Hi Carrie: How's the job hunt? I too, have been looking since January and agree that it can greatly affect your self esteem. What career area are you looking in?
    I decided to re-focus on my health and it helps to keep me "up" during the job search.
    Come visit the Littleton Losers Spark Page...we would love to help and encourage you on your journey.
