Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
My name is Cassie. For as long as I can remember, I've been unhappy with my body. Last year, when I hit 190 pounds I decided it was time to make a change. I diet and excised consistently for about 3 months. The scale read 160 pounds but refused to budge from that point. I had hit my very first serious platu. Instead of pushing through it like I wish I would have, I gave up. 22 pounds later, here I am at 182 pounds just a few pounds shy of where I started. I'm making another stand right here and now, I will not weight 190 again, I succeed, I will break past 160 pounds, and I will finally be happy in my own skin.
* I want to have a one month streak where I meet all of my fitness goals.
* I want to have a one month streak that I log on everyday and track my food.
* I want to have a one month streak where I drink 8 glasses of water a day.
- Cutting down my calories to 1,400 - 1,600.
- Exercising Monday-Friday 30 minutes a day. Saturday-Sunday at least 10 minutes a day.
- Drinking 8 glasses of water a day.

~ Currently attending Moberly Area Community College.
* Majoring in Psychology- to become a social worker.

Thanks for your helpful words Cassie!
You’re 18?! I’m 19!
I’m new to the whole Spark community, so it’s cool to see other young Sparkers out there. (Not that everyone here is old…)
Anyway…shine on Cassie!

Welcome to SparkPeople Cassie. I am so glad that you found us. There is a lot of information here and the best tools to help you reach your goals.
I have been on SparkPeople since April 2009 and I have lost over 20 pounds and I have kept it off with the help of this website! I track my food every day (good and bad) and I track my exercise. You can check out my SparkPage and see my fitness and food tracking. I put it all out there for everyone to see – the good, the bad and the ugly. It helps keep me honest! Are there days when I eat stuff that I know I shouldn’t – of course. This is a life long journey, one with many paths to take. I just have to keep making the right choices and when I don’t, I get back on the right path and don’t look back.
The encouragement and motivation I get from my Spark friends is amazing. They are always there to help me through tough times and bring a smile to my face. I have found that if I post something that is bothering me, within an hour someone will respond back and make sure everything is alright and offer encouragement.
One of the best things that you can do for yourself is to find a few good teams that you will check in with every day. When you are looking at teams that you might be interested in, check how old the posts are. If you find that no one has posted to it for a few weeks then I would suggest you keep looking. You need daily support and interaction with other team members. I invite you to check out Spin Me A Yarn and/or Australian Cattle Dog Lovers teams, which I am the team leader of. See if it is something that interests you. I try to keep it fun and interesting on both teams.
Being new, I would suggest that you use Your Spark Points (click on View SparkPoints) as a map to the site. It is a good way to see what is new and a great tool for any situation.
