Hi, my name is Marsha and I live in Southern Oregon. I started Sparkpeople in Jan 08, lost 20 pounds my first month, then I hit a plateau for about a month and a half. I tried several things to get over the plateau, but nothing I tried worked....I got frustrated, disappointed, and finally convinced my self that I just couldn't do it.

Then I got on meds for a hypothyroid! This seems to help with my energy levels and mood swings.

For the next couple of months I tried Weight Watchers and the Carb Addicts Diet. I hated paying for the Weight Watcher's Diet, just felt like it was a waste of money, I mean, "Why couldn't I do it myself?" The Carb Addicts Diet was easy to understand and follow their concept and I lost a few pounds. Which got me reved-up to get back on Sparkpeople and start doing more research to help me lose the weight once and for all.

So here I it another go! This time I will follow through and work through the kinks and learn as much as I possibly can to gain better health. Because I am DONE! That's right, DONE!!

    We're down to the last 18 days to Christmas. Are you ready? Do you have a plan to survive the holidays? Nutritionally? Emotionally? Fitness? Now is as good a time as any to get your plan in place.

    Me, I am going to keep focusing on one day at a time, getting in my nutrition and fitness for that day. As for emotional survival, I will be sure to take care of me during these stressful couple of weeks. Maybe get a mani/pedi. New hair style? Haven't really decided yet.

    With the days getting shorter, and the snow starting to fly (at least around here it is), it is getting harder and harder to find motivation to keep exercising. I do most of my fitness outdoors - running. I am also finding I do not want to drink as much water in this colder weather.
    Despite this, I am determined to continue on my journey.
    What are you doing to overcome your barriers to fitness? How are you keeping yourself motivated during this holiday season?
    Wishing you all the best on your fitness journey this week.

    Happy Monday Sparkfriend.

    I hope your weekend went well. If not, today is a new day. Commit to make you a priority today. What does that look like for you for today? Exericse? A manicure? Doing something that you are afraid to do to prove to yourself you can do it?

    Best luck on your new week. Today is the first day of the rest of your life. Make the most of it.
