Still Under Construction

Hello fellow Sparkers. I hope you are doing well on your lifestyle change. I am here to join you once again to get my body to a more healthy state.

Hello fellow Sparkers. I hope you are doing well on your lifestyle change. I am here to join you once again to get my body to a more healthy state. I'm tired, and don't feel like moving most of the time, and hungry all the time. When I do move, my joints or my back aches. My favorite place to be is on my couch and it is becoming more and more difficult to get up off of it. I know that this is my downfall as I have already started having lifestyle related health problems. I work as a nurse and teach others why they shouldn't do what I am doing. I am very unhappy with my hypocrisy and want to change. Today I am on Sparkpeople and figuring out how to make that change. I hope with all my heart that I can do what needs to be done and am relieved to know that other Sparkers will be there for me and also hope that I can be there for you.
