My Journey back to a healthier place

My weight has always been up and down due to a thyroid disorder. I raised three children and modeled a healthy lifestyle that they live themselves today. Back in 2003 - 6 I was at my peak of health. I worked out 6 days a week at a gym, had an overall active lifestyle, was in an ideal weight and health. After a series of life changes I gained over 100 pounds and now find myself struggling to break out of this unfit body and moved towards what I used to be. I have done it before, and I know I ...
My weight has always been up and down due to a thyroid disorder. I raised three children and modeled a healthy lifestyle that they live themselves today. Back in 2003 - 6 I was at my peak of health. I worked out 6 days a week at a gym, had an overall active lifestyle, was in an ideal weight and health. After a series of life changes I gained over 100 pounds and now find myself struggling to break out of this unfit body and moved towards what I used to be. I have done it before, and I know I can do it again, but find I need more support. I figured if I make it more public, take more ownership and have more accountability, I might just do it!

emoticon And emoticon to Spark People…you will find lots of information on sparkpeople as well as lots of support and encouragement from all our members. And hopefully you have fun along the way.
Things to remember that will help you reach your goal:

Be sure to track your water you drink. You need to drink 8-8oz glasses of water a day – just one at a time throughout your day and you can reach this goal.

Use your nutrition tracker daily: tracking your food at first will seem difficult but over time it will become second nature.

Use your fitness tracker: Get active/exercise: just 10 minutes here and there adds up quickly. Park your car further from the store and walk. Take stairs rather than the elevator, etc.

Remember this is one step at a time, one minute at a time, one day at a time and it all adds up. Don’t feel you need to start with 30-60 minutes in one sitting at first. It will come in time.

Remember this is about changing your life style not dieting. So do it little at a time, in baby steps. Don’t expect miracles right away…again it is a life style change!!! And over time you will begin to notice the difference in how you feel, your energy level, and how you look.

Post your questions and concerns: Don’t be afraid to ask question or seek out help. We are all on the same journey but at different levels of that journey.

Setbacks can be and are a part of this journey: Don’t let them dictate your mood or progress. Let it go and keep moving forward. Keeping your focus on your goal and you will reach them in time.

Celebrate: Celebrate all your accomplishments. (Set small goals for yourself so you have a way of seeing your progress) Do this through blogging, posting updates and rewarding yourself.

I am a type 2 diabetic that is almost off all my medicine. (I was on 5 orals plus insulin now down to 1 oral). Let me tell you how God and SparkPeople have and are helping me: Wow, I have always been heavy and at my peak I was 345lbs. With God’s help and the tools on SparkPeople I have been able to lose 152lbs to date. I still have another 22lbs to go but I know I’ll make it. If I just keep on doing what I’ve been doing. So I know you can do it too!!
(I have always recognized that it’s God who has enabled me to be who I am and to accomplish all I have accomplished)

God bless you on your journey to a healthier you.
