Hiyas, I'm Heather. I'm back on sparkpeople, i have been away for a really long time. Hmmm whats been going on with me: started nursing school and worked full time and went to school full time. In Jan- Feb last year found out that i was really sick, but needed surgery to find our just how sick I was. Had 2 surgeries, and continued wit recovering and treatments while finishing school. Graduated in september. So now i'm back to continue on working to become a healthier version of myself. Look forward with reconnecting with everyone.
One of my goals is to become healthier. I would also like to have more energy and be able to keep up with my nieces and nephews
I am making better choices with the foods i eat and monitoring portion controls. I am also starting to go to the gym where i work .
Hi. I'm Heather, 27 , from Pa. I like to hang out with friends over coffee. I work 3rd shift at a hospital . I like to go to the movies , dance, sing, crochet .
Love for today cause you never know what tommorrow will bring. Tell your loved one how you feel , you may not see them 10 minutes from now.

Congrats on taking the next step to reaching a healthier you by getting active with SparkPeople - it's a great community, wonderful resources and fantastic support.
Please check out the SparkTeams - I think you will find a lot of others 'just like you' there. You can choose SparkTeams by age group, lifestyle or interests, geographic location or several other ways - some of the teams you might like include the Official 10-minute Daily Exercise Streak Challenge, Starting Over Weekly Mini-Challenge Team, 10k Steps A Day and Motivation & Positive Attitude Plan but there are so many to choose from, you can have a great time looking for the ones that seem to fit you best! In fact, I suggest joining more than one group, post your intro there and write blogs as often as you can - you will find tons of friends and support that way, I promise!!
In my experience, SparkPeople is like a in some ways - it's lots of fun and easy to make friends because we're all in this together. I like the way a HEALTHY LIFESTYLE is emphasized instead of a 'quick fix wonder diet' so it's good for people wanting to lose weight, maintain a previous loss, get healthier, improve fitness and many other goals - it's about waaaaaay more than 'just' losing weight so you have definitely come to the right place!
If you ever need any help using features of the site, there are tutorial videos under the HELP section that can show you how to use the features of the site. You can also find them on the START page and several other places on the site.
If you haven't already discovered The Spark book and/or the SparkDiet linked at the bottom of the START page, check them out - the program is simple but extremely effective. There is a TON of information on this site - so much it might even seem overwhelming but fortunately we don't have to 'digest' everything at once! The FastBreak program is a good way to start.
Another nice thing about SparkPeople is that we have permission to be human - we don't have to change everything at once or be in a hurry to reach our goals. Take a few baby steps and then a few more and before you know it, you'll have completed a long journey - I hope you enjoy this community as much as I do - it teaches us how to make positive lifetime changes because that's the only thing that will work over time!

i fall of the motivation wagon at least once a day! haha. just remember that it is not a long fall, so it's easy to dust off and get right back up.

Hey girl! Just stopping by to catch up with you and how your summer is progressing. I've bummed my left knee and just been totally unable to motivate myself to the gym ... BUT I've been getting some walking in to offset not going to the gym. Stop by my page and leave me an update.
