New Year, New Weight, New Life

Hi, I'm Megan. I'm a 20 year old English student, and competitive dancer, believe it or not. For the past year or two, I've been trying to lose weight, though I was unsuccessful. Now that I'm finishing my degree, I want a change. I want to better my life.

Fitness Minutes: 4,943

My Goals:
* Lose 10 lbs each month
* Strength train at least 3 times a week
* Cardio at least 5 times a week
* Lose 50 pounds by June
* Lose 70 pounds by September
* continue to live a healthy life


20 lbs - Haircut and highlights
30 lbs - Pedicure
40lbs - ???
50lbs- Donate old clothes
60lbs- Redecorate my bedroom
70lbs- Shopping spree!

My Program:
In order to reach my goals, I am going to take my weight lost one step at a time. I've tried before to do this and failed often. This time, I can't get myself down when I slip up.

I'm going to stick to my healthy eating, treating myself to something once a week so that I don't plateau. I'm going to work out 5 times a week, where time permits, doing a mixture of strength training and cardio, switching it up each day.

I saw your weights been consistent for our challenge weigh-ins. Congrats on all the inches you've lost! The weight is going to have to drop soon, too!

I read that you aren't able to weigh in this week, so I will use your weigh in from last week! Have a great 4th!

WTG on making your SparkPage!!

Welcome to SparkPeople!

Start with your Start Page! Here is a video to help you unlock the power of Your Start Page:
www.sparkpeople.com/resource/motivat
ion_articles.asp?id=1124

Here's the video for the Nutrition Tracker - the best tool online!
www.sparkpeople.com/resource/nutriti
on_articles.asp?id=1154

I was 54 when I joined SparkPeople and 56 when I came back and started my Spark Program, starting with Stage One. This is a one day at a time program, but if you do the SparkPeople Program Steps, it really does work. I am terribly average, it's the SP program that is extraordinary.

I found logging my foods in the Nutrition Tracker helped me to lose 90 lbs in 16 months! I started at 210 and went to 120.

I hung clothing that was too small on my closet door and every time I would get discouraged I would try them on. Week by week they started fitting! That kept me motivated.

Welcome aboard, we really are all in the same boat! Sometimes we can sail right along but sometimes we have to be rowing like crazy!

You can make it happen! SparkPeople really does work!

Linda

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!
