The Path To A Healthier Me

Welcome to my Spark-Page! I'm glad you've decided to take the time to come visit with me.

I'm 42 yrs old, an at-home-mom of 2 girls, Ages 11 & 7 yrs old, married for 15 years and struggled with eating healthy and exercising regularly most of my life. I know I need to live a healthy life. I currently am not healthy. I lack energy and motivation. I don't eat properly (skipping meals and catching up later is not a good thing.) I have digestive issues. I've NEVER had ...
Welcome to my Spark-Page! I'm glad you've decided to take the time to come visit with me.

I'm 42 yrs old, an at-home-mom of 2 girls, Ages 11 & 7 yrs old, married for 15 years and struggled with eating healthy and exercising regularly most of my life. I know I need to live a healthy life. I currently am not healthy. I lack energy and motivation. I don't eat properly (skipping meals and catching up later is not a good thing.) I have digestive issues. I've NEVER had digestive issues in my entire life. I want to feel good. I want to look good in my clothes; not frumpy, like I do now.

I have maintained an exercise routine in the past. But when I fall off the wagon, I fall HARD. And usually the reason I fall off the healthy eating/exercise wagon is because I have to take the focus off of me and focus more on other things . I am not good at 'juggling' I guess. I must LEARN to incorporate my exercise & healthy eating into the times that get extra stressful for me.

Eating healthier, exercising and focusing on my goals must be made a priority in my life . Motivation is a key factor for me as well, so I look to you, my Spark-mates for help in this area. I know I am responsible for getting FIT & LEAN....no one else can do it for me, however, I know that encouragement from others that are going through the same thing will help me along this journey. I hope to make blogging here on SP more of a priority. Getting out my feelings and sharing my triumphs and struggles with others will help me understand myself better.

Thanks for reading about me and feel free to add me as a Spark friend! Best Wishes for a healthier YOU!

My Goals:
~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~
Drink 8-8oz. glasses water per day

~Eat healthier
~Get more sleep!

My Program:
I'm not following any set program.
* Drink more water
*Eat less sugar
*MOVE more!

I believe losing weight has a lot to do with your attitude and your mindset. When I am not focusing on what I want to accomplish and just 'let' myself eat whatever, that is how I end up out of control all over again.

Hello Motivated Momma!

Follow Your Dream
by: Amanda Bradley

Follow your dream.
Take one step at a time and don't settle for less,
Just continue to climb.
Follow your dream.
If you stumble, don't stop and lose sight of your goal
Press to the top.
For only on top can we see the whole view,
Can we see what we've done and what we can do;
Can we then have the vision to seek something new,
Press on.
Follow your dream.

Have a truly great day my Spark-tastic friend!

You really should take a picture of yourself. Dont have to post it on sparkpeople. The picture I did is not my actual before picture. I wish I did have one from my starting weight of 210...would be nice to see the difference!
I am going to take a picture evey 10 lb loss and post it on my page.
