I want to push myself a little more

I am 24 years old and a healthy individual at a healthy weight. I compete in pageants, and being a short muscular individual is harder than it seems. I'm not as lean as I'd like and would prefer to drop about ten pounds. I get a lot of flack when I say I am trying to watch my calorie intake or lose weight, but I am not in the shape I would Ideally like to be in, and would still like to push myself further. :)

I also have Hashimoto's Hypothyroiditis and have been battling it since ...

I also have Hashimoto's Hypothyroiditis and have been battling it since I was 13. I don't know if the thyroid condition affects my ability to lose weight, but sometimes I feel it makes it a little harder.

I am complete fitness buff. I was a competitive figure skater for most of my life and have been lifting and doing cardio on a regular basis since my middle school days. In fact, the gym was where I recieved my first pageant suggestion. I entered one, won swimnsuit (as the biggest girl there) and was hooked. It may sound like a silly superficial passion, but pageants are fantastic and have helped me shape into who I am today. I paid for my graduate degree with scholarships earned from the Miss America program and although I am too old to compete another year in the system I am not giving up!

I will be competing in my state usa pageant soon and am very excited. I have never competed in this pageant system but am going to give it my all. Although I am fit, I am short and dont know if I have the ideal stature, but I am determined not to sell myself short (haha) because how can I know if I dont try??

Congrats on taking the first step to reaching a healthier you by getting active with SparkPeople - it's a great community, wonderful resources and fantastic support.

Please check out the SparkTeams - I think you will find a lot of others 'just like you' there. You can choose SparkTeams by age group, lifestyle or interests, geographic location or several other ways - in fact, I suggest joining more than one group, post your intro there and write blogs as often as you can - you will find tons of friends and support that way, I promise!!

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!

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.

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!
