HEALTHIERLYNN is a SparkPeople Motivator!
My body is way too sexy to be hidden by a bunch o' fat...
I'm a So Cal girl who was sick and tired of the yo-yo dieting and yearning for permanent change!! And ya know what? The ability for permanent change is only one of the many things that I've found here at SparkPeople...
I am also a newlywed, and although it's sort of backwards to lose weight AFTER the wedding, rather than before, it's time nonetheless!
Well, the name says it all...my goal is to achieve a Healthier Lynn...again! My short-term goal is to lose 7 pounds by April 11th. After allowing my health to take a back seat in my life, I now have 30 pounds to lose, after which it will be time to keep it off, for a change! I am also striving for an increased overall health...."overall" health meaning an increased emotional health, physical health, psychological health...basically a bit of an overhaul is what I'm working towards, and ya know what?? I'm gonna rock it!
I started my Lifestyle Change through SP on June 26, 2007 and in a lot of ways it was SO easy! I did what most everyone else on SP does.... I stayed within the guidelines SP set for my nutritional guide (the low end of it!) and I exercised as often as I could.... But, I let all of that progress go... Well, I am sick and tired of feeling pain every day (from Fibromyalgia) and it's far past time I quit stumbling along! I'm taking control...keeping my focus....I'm in THE ZONE, Baby!!!! On my way to the Slimmer, Healthier Lynn!
As I said above, I'm a So Cal girl, basically born and raised...my mom is my very favorite person on the planet...I'm majorly stuck in the 80s when it comes to music...I'm addicted to my iPod...my weakness is Ben & Jerry's Coffee Heath Bar Crunch, but we won't talk about that! Oh, and one other very important thing to note is that I am a Miami Dolphins fan...a Phins Phanatic, really...completely...faithfully...'til death do us part...
Other information? Well, a lot could be said here! I'll just leave it at this: I'm a bit of a nut, but if you stick around long enough, you'll find that out for yourself! In fact, if you want proof positive, come rock and play with me in "80s Music Lovers"...that's where all the nut jobs hang out! ;-)

Are you doing the 10-minute challenge (or were you just kind enough to give me encouragement on my morning exercise post)? I just started week 3. It's amazing how much those 10 minutes (or 20 or more) add up if you do it every day!

Thanks for the encouragement! I think the 3 pant sizes helps the mental part of this journey too. Know that it's not really just numbers on a scale that are changing.
Congrats on your size smaller!!

Thank you so much for the encouragement on my blog. I actually tried something new today at the gym (the stupid stair climbing machine). Didn't like it much but will probably have to try it again. I will try something else. Thank you again!

woohoo on not letting TOM deter you. My 1 lb loss is getting me back down from my 2 lb gain last week (can't decide why I gained but oh well)
