Jenny's Lifestyle Change

When I found SparkPeople, I knew it was the site for me.

I'd been wanting to lose weight, but I was tired of "fad" diets and knew that I wanted to make a lifestyle change, not just "diet." I knew then, and continue to remind myself, that I'm not looking for a quick fix- I want something long term that isn't just about size but also about good habits.

When I found SparkPeople, I knew it was the site for me.

I'd been wanting to lose weight, but I was tired of "fad" diets and knew that I wanted to make a lifestyle change, not just "diet." I knew then, and continue to remind myself, that I'm not looking for a quick fix- I want something long term that isn't just about size but also about good habits.

The SparkPeople site seemed to fit into all of these ideals. So far, I've had some discouragement, simply because I would like to see faster results on the scale, but despite that, I also have gained some great confidence in the progress I have made because I can see the results with the nutrition and goal trackers. Even when my scale doesn't budge for a week, I see that I'm eating more fruit, drinking more water and cutting back on my candy intake and feel a sense of accomplishment that I don't think I would find by simply dieting.

I want to be a good mother and, to me, that doesn't just mean kiss boo-boos, buying the newest cool toy, or being active in the PTA. I want to be able to take active part in his life by having the energy to play with him, I want to be an example of good choices, and I want to be around for years to come by being a healthier me.

Here is the beginning and progress of my journey to get there.

Jenny I saw you over at Vegas journal and had to come and say welcome. and you are a very brave person. You are so right that this tthing can not be a diet it has to be a lifestyle change. Diets never work. I wish you all the luck in the work and my prayers also that you will get through this and all things in your life.

Penny
