@ GYMRAT - I am doing GREAT. My boyfriend bought me a gym membership and is funding a personal trainer so that I get the best possible result. We also walk together on the days I am too busy to get to the gym. My endurance has improved immensely - last night we walked for an hour at a pretty fast clip. That is way up from barely being able to walk 10 minutes at a turtles pace!! I've lost 6 pounds in the last 4 weeks. We are eating healthier & feeling so much better!! I am amazed at how much more energy I have.
Thank you so much for checking on me :) I have a long way to go yet, but if I feel this good after losing the first 6 pounds I can't imagine how I will feel when the other 49 are gone!! 1581 days ago
My name is Sarah and I’ve been a member of this site off and on for a few years, and I do love it. I was here a few years back and lost 20 pounds, then went away and stopped using the site and gained all that weight back.
I have tried other diets and found that what I truly love about SparkPeople is the community, I believe it really helps keep you on track. Utilize the community here, add friends, join teams and challenges and post to the message boards.
Oh, sweetie we are just getting better. The problem is we often take care of others before we take care of ourselves... so ... save yourself first and you will have more energy to take care of others...
